First let’s just get how good Blake Lively looks on the March cover of Elle out of the way. Because this is one of the best covers we’ve seen in a very long time. It’s chic, beautifully understated and the hair, makeup and styling is spot on. The shoot inside is a different story altogether, because can someone say steamy? What we find interesting in the interview is how Blake reveals, “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.” Does this include Ryan Reynolds, her current flame? And Leonardo DiCaprio, the ex of a couple of months ago? And can someone point out that Blake is only 24 so her “whole life” doesn’t really apply here? Because we have a feeling we’re going to see a fair amount of A-Listers on Blake’s arm in the future.

Scarlett Johansson may be taking off for quickie vacays with Sean Penn, but her ex isn’t far behind. Ryan Reynolds was photographed in South Africa looking quite comfortable with a supercute blonde woman. The Michelle Williams-esque mystery lady looks happy to be around Ryan (who wouldn’t), and E! published a photograph of them with her hand this close to his perfect butt. Oh to be those hands. Actually, while we’re hoping for things… oh to be that lithe with perfect features!
Ryan’s in Cape Town at the moment filming Safe House with Denzel Washington and it looks like he’s finding the locals quite friendly. His rep is keeping mum about who she is and what’s going down, if anything at all. It’s just funny that both Scarlett and Ryan have been photographed with other seemingly significant others within a week of each other. We guess they’ve both moved on!

We’re suckers for the whole parting lovers angle. So when UsMagazine reported that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson reunited for dinner, our ears instantly perked up. Unfortunately, they’re not getting back together, so this was just a friendly check-in.
The soon-to-be divorced couple reportedly met up around 11pm on Friday, at the Chateau Marmont. They apparently had dinner at the Little Door restaurant before heading out for a drink. Sources say that ScarJo was the most vocal of the two in what was a “rollercoaster conversation,” and allegedly seemed to be alternating between fighting back tears and smiling. This so so sad. Imagine what their babies would have looked like.
This is the second time they’ve been seen together publicly since announce the impending divorce. The two also met for lunch at the Blue Ribbons restaurant in New York in December last year. Wonder if Ryan asked ScarJo what was up with Justin Long?

Divorcing stars Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds don’t seem like that sort who would start throwing things at each other in public. It’s almost like the break-up is happening much like their getting together did: quietly and without any fanfare. Remember how ScarJo and Ryan announced their split to the world? Even their joint statement sounds logical and calm, reading, “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.” See, what we mean?
This wasn’t a load of BS. ScarJo and Ryan met up for lunch recently, which totally makes them better than we ever could be—try to catch us sitting down with a freshly ‘released’ ex. The two met up at the Blue Ribbons restaurant in New York, where a source told People that, “They were smiling and laughing the whole time.” But lest you get your hopes up, it was all in the platonic vein. The source added, “They just wanted to connect and have a friendly chat. They just wanted to sit down together. The tone was light and fun despite the untruths that the media is working up. They aren’t reconciling. This was just two people who were married being civil and friendly.” Yes, it can apparently happen.
Sounds much like the Eva Longoria and Tony Parker lunch! The only difference is that the latter has (or had) major dramz going down, and we hear nary a stray sext from ScarJo and Ryan.
