Scarlett and Ryan have an emotional dinner

Attorney’s offices are so cold and impersonal, so it’s understandable that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson chose to discuss details of their divorce over a friendly dinner instead.  The two were seen at Chateau Marmont earlier this week, having an intense discussion that involved both smiles and tears.

Friends say that this is not an attempt at reconciliation, but rather just the nicest possible way to work through a divorce.  Both Scarlett and Ryan have agreed that with their career obligations, continuing marriage simply isn’t on the cards.  The two began drifting apart last year when work forced them to spend weeks apart at a time.
