Hollywood couple Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have split after two years of marriage.
The stars wed in a low-key ceremony in Reynolds' native Canada in September 2008, but their relationship has now come to an end.
A joint statement issued to WENN reads: "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."
The shock break-up comes just months after Johansson dedicated her Tony Award win for Featured Actress in a Play for A View from the Bridge to her beau.
Accepting the honour, she said: "To my Canadian, whom I live with, Ryan thank you for becoming a theatre widower with me."
And Reynolds was equally as loved up in September (10), when the actor told America's GQ magazine his wife was "the best part" of his life.
