Reynolds files for divorce

The actor starts divorce proceeding to end marriage with Scarlett Johansson

It's only been a few days since their separation was announced, but Ryan Reynolds has wasted no time and has already filed for divorce from wife Scarlett Johansson.

The Canadian actor filed a petition to start divorce proceedings at a Los Angeles court house yesterday.

He quoted "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce.

Reynolds and Johansson married in 2008 but the couple was said to be spending little time together due to their busy schedules.
