Ryan Reynolds, the American actor currently starring in 'The Change-Up', has ended his brief relationship with Charlize Theron, according to US Weekly Magazine. The newly divorced actor began dating the South African actress in the summer, but the pair went their separate ways in late July.
The couple were initially set up by mutual friends, but an insider explained, "He only wanted something casual, but she's in a rush to settle down, have kids and start a family since she's getting older". The source added the Aeon Flux actress didn't take the split well, saying, "She knows deep down that it wouldn't have worked, but she is pretty bummed out about it all". They had managed to keep the relationship secretive until the 'Green Lantern' actor was spotted leaving the Oscar-winner's Malibu home on 5th June 2011.A friend of the actress claims the relationship ended because of conflicting schedules, saying, "They're both too busy.And they were hardly ever together anyway".
Having married in British Columbia back in 2008, Reynolds and the actress Scarlett Johansson announced their separation in December 2010. The actor filed for divorce later that month and the marriage official ended on 1st July 2011.
