Scarlett Johansson talks doing ‘Marriage Story’ 9 years after divorcing Ryan Reynolds

Scarlett Johansson knew instantly that she wanted to play Nicole in Netflix’s upcoming divorce drama, Marriage Story. The 34-year-old actress, who has been divorced twice, opens up about connecting with the material in Elle’s Women in Hollywood issue.

“It felt familiar somehow, but not because of what I’d been experiencing then,” Johansson, who was in the middle of her divorce from Romain Dauriac when she read the script, tells the magazine. “But maybe because of how I grew up, and the dynamic between my parents—or maybe because I’ve known women who’ve dedicated themselves to their partner’s vision and then come out of this decade-long relationship feeling almost like a ghost.” 

The Elle writer says that Johansson, who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds in addition to Dauriac, noted that she too “has been in that place.”
