Secret weddings have apparently become the rage in Hollywood, and the union between Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively is just the latest example. According to reports, the two stars tied the knot during a private ceremony outside of Charleston, South Carolina. The two met while filming "The Green Lantern" and have grown progressively more serious ever since. News of the nuptials was hard to come by until several of Blake's visitors started showing up in South Carolina, including her designer friend Christian Louboutin. Since the two actors have been involved in several high profile romances in the past, it's not surprising that they opted for a low-key affair for their big day. Here is a look at some of the past headline-grabbing relationships involving these two stars.
Ryan and Scarlett Johansson
Marrying Blake wasn't the first time that Ryan walked down the aisle in secret. In 2008, he married the stunning "Avengers" star in a quiet ceremony near Vancouver. The two were married for more than two years before they filed for divorce in December of 2010, and the marriage was officially over a few months later. Though the split was amicable, Scarlett still expressed the pain of having the relationship end during a 2012 interview. "It was horrible," she said. "Of course it's horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn't work out."
Blake and Leonardo DiCaprio
The "Shutter Island" actor has had plenty of famous ex-flames, and Blake is counted among them. The two dated for about five months in 2011 before calling it quits in October. Despite what seemed to be a highly affectionate romance, both parties moved on without a hitch. "I have a strong sense of myself," said the actress, who started dating Ryan shortly after this split. "That gives me a sense of security, you know? Every relationship you have, you're learning and growing and taking something from that. So for me, it's never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends."
Ryan and Alanis MorissetteWhile still enjoying his "Van Wilder" fame, Ryan started dating the iconic singer in 2002. They were engaged in 2004, but destiny never took them down the aisle. After much speculation, the engagement ended in 2007 without any wedding bells. Soon after they broke up, Alanis created the album "Flavors of Entanglement" and admitted that it was about her failed relationship to the Canadian actor.
