Scarlett Johansson`s marriage to Ryan Reynolds was beautiful

London: ‘Avengers’ star Scarlett Johansson says her marriage to Ryan Reynolds was a beautiful thing and she is glad she spent that period of her life with him.

The 27-year-old actress married the Hollywood heartthrob in 2008 but less than three years later their union was over, and while she still feels upset it didn`t work out, she`s glad she spent that period of her life with him, reported Contactmusic.

"It was a beautiful thing. The falling in love and getting married and making that commitment. I think it`s nice to know that you`re capable of loving somebody in that way. I think it`s a rare opportunity," said Johansson, who is now dating New York-based advertising creative director Nate Naylor.

"I don`t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better. It`s still there. More than anything, it`s just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird. There`s no rule book. I think it`s just time," she added.
