Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Reynolds

Gregg DeGuire/, Jim Spellman/

Sorry, Golden Globe nominees, this here is some major movie news—though sadly, this is real life and not some crazy plot twist: Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds have separated after two years of marriage.

Guess no one can stand up to the scrutiny of being the hottest couple alive.

So what happened?

"After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage," Reynolds' rep said in a statement. "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."

Which still begs the question, what happened?

Just a few weeks ago, the duo was seen looking "crazy in love" at a restaurant in New York City, though now, unsurprisingly, there's no official word on what led to the stars' breakup. Which, actually, is pretty much par for the course for a couple who somehow managed to maintain the lowest of public profiles throughout their relationship.

There's also no word on when the duo went their separate ways, though they are reportedly living apart at the moment. But for anyone looking for a bit of silver lining, the split is said to be amicable, something Reynolds' statement certainly backs up.

Rumors first surfaced last month that there may be trouble in paradise, with reports blaming the duo's conflicting work schedules on keeping them apart, though the couple's reps dismissed the rumblings at the time.

And at least over the summer, the seemed to be making quality time a priority, purchasing a $2.8 million home in Los Angeles.

In any case, the Sexiest Man Alive and the Babe of the Year are back on the market—let the magazine cover curse conspiracy theories begin.
