When two of the world’s sexiest movie stars, Ryan Reynolds (People’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive) and Scarlett Johansson, decided to end their marriage (they tied the knot in September 2008), the media and fans went into a frenzy. But the couple’s split left everyone with more questions than answers, and the two never publicly explained what happened. Finally, Ryan sheds a little light on their breakup in the July issue of Details magazine. “What was happening privately was the exact opposite of what was being reported,” says the 34-year-old Ryan. “There was no story and no scandal, so the narrative was just created for me. That was the most disturbing part. I wasn’t angry. I absolutely predicted every beat of it.” Fortunately, he says the split from Scarlett was quite amicable and that he’s thankful to have been in a relationship where two people chose to remain on the high road in every regard.

Now almost half a year later, the Canadian-born hottie says he’s changed for the better. “Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but you come out of it, the Green Lantern star admits. “I gotta say, I’m a different person than I was six months ago.” Even though Scarlett has moved on and is reportedly dating Sean Penn, Ryan reveals that he’s not ready at all yet to find a new love. “I have no interest in dating right now. It just seems so kind of alien to me at this point,” he confesses. You can catch Ryan in the new action/hero flick Green Lantern in theaters now. We’re loving him in these sexy Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators, which come in five versatile frame colors. –rpuccia
