Scarlett Johansson: Divorce Made Me 'Quite Depressed'

Actress Scarlett Johansson is finally opening up about her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, which was finalized this past June.

In a candid interview with German magazine GALA, the usually tight-lipped star revealed that she was "quite depressed" after the couple split. The actress relied on her close girlfriends, her twin brother Hunter and her 89-year-old grandmother Dorothy to help her get through the break-up.

"After about a week or so I pulled myself together and started to go to the gym all the time," the actress told the German-language magazine (via the Toronto Sun)

But don't expect the star to reveal what caused her marriage's demise. "That question is too personal," she says. "I will only tell you this: I can be overcritical -- with myself and with other people. And I don't compromise."

Johansson admitted to other flaws too: "I pass judgment on people quite quickly. If I don't agree with someone or if I'm annoyed I will tell people to their face -- no matter how hurtful that might be. That can get me into trouble from time to time."

Johansson and Reynolds married in 2008 and announced their separation at the end of 2010. The pair is known for keeping their relationship private.
