Ryan Reynolds wants nothing more than to start a family and when his wife wasn’t ready, he knew it wasn’t going to work. Now, he’s interested in his friend Sandra Bullock! Do you think they make a good couple?
Ryan Reynolds‘ marriage to Scarlett Johansson reportedly fell apart over his desire to start a family, while she wanted to focus on her career. “I have every intention of adopting at some time,” says Ryan Reynolds, who has an adopted brother. Unfortunately, his 26-year-old wife kept putting baby plans on hold to focus on her career and Ryan just couldn’t take it any longer. “Careers don’t last forever and Ryan’s starting to feel the urge to nest,” an insider tells Star. Now, the 34-year-old is realizing that his The Proposal co-star and good friend Sandra Bullock has the life that he longs for.
“He sees that Sandra has what he wants — a family. He thinks it’s so cool that she’s such a great mom, and he was really disappointed Scarlett wasn’t ready to do that yet,” explains the source.
Ryan was there for Sandra earlier this year when her husband Jesse James‘ affairs were made public. And he enjoys spending time with her adopted son, Louis. So, when Ryan and Scarlett’s marriage hit the rocks, of course he turned to Sandra, 46, for support and advice. “He was calling her often, spilling his heart out to her. He really felt like he could tell her anything,” the insider tells the magazine.
In fact, he chose to spend Saturday, November 13, with Sandra at LA’s Soho House, instead of being in New York to support Scarlett’s hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. “They were sitting right next to each other, very close,” an eyewitness tells Star. “And they were very touchy-feely.” According to the National Enquirer, his absence signaled the end of their marriage as far as Scarlett was concerned.
Sources tell the Enquirer that Ryan saw Sandra in a whole new light after she adopted Louis. “If anything, Sandra’s become even more attractive to him since she adopted baby Louis last January,” says the source.
“Sandra is Ryan’s idea of a perfect woman, and he’s fantasized about her for a long time,” reveals an insider. But he’s never acted on those feelings — but that could all change now that they’re both back on the market and set to co-star in a new romantic comedy called Most Wanted.
