Back in October 2014, Scarlett Johansson, the famous actress, and a French art collector, Romain Dauriac, exchanged their vows to start a new chapter of their lives together. The couple welcomed their adorable daughter, Rose Dorothy, two years later. However, things took a different turn, and they decided to part ways in January 2017. Scarlett filed for a divorce in March, officially ending their whirlwind romance.
Scarlett Johansson was seen having lunch with Romain Dauriac at La Esquina restaurant in New York, just a day after news of her break up with Nate Naylor became public in October 2012. They went public with their relationship in November when Dauriac accompanied Johansson to the premiere of her movie Hitchcock. Later, they secretly got married.
In a low-key ceremony on Oct. 1, 2014, the celebrity couple officially tied the knot in Philipsburg, Montana as confirmed by a clerk from Granite County. Speculations about their secret wedding started circulating after reports emerged that the couple got married quietly after the birth of their first child, Rose Dorothy, in September of the same year. According to an insider, the couple opted for a private ceremony because they valued their privacy. It seemed that the two were a perfect match in keeping their special moments away from the public eye.
The couple got dressed up for the Tom Ford Autumn/Winter 2015 Womenswear Collection Presentation held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles. Johansson once mentioned in a 2012 Elle interview that she seeks a partner who possesses creativity, an inspiring outlook towards life, and an appreciation for art, music, and film. It is important to find the right balance in a relationship.
During an interview with WSJ Magazine back in 2014, Johansson shared her thoughts on maintaining a work-life balance. She expressed her desire to find a way to raise a family while still pursuing her career goals, including making at least one film per year, working on personal projects, and even doing theater. Essentially, she aims to have the best of both worlds.
Johansson and Dauriac were known for being very secretive as a couple in the entertainment industry, but they did make appearances together from time to time. One such occasion was the launch of their fancy popcorn store, “Yummy Pop,” on October 22, 2016, in Paris.
In a 2015 episode of The Late Show, Scarlett Johansson spoke about her experience of living with her husband Romain Dauriac in Paris while also spending time in New York. She expressed her admiration for the beauty of the City of Lights and mentioned that she was learning French, which is her husband’s language. However, she admitted to preferring to speak in English during arguments because it allowed her to communicate her ideas more quickly. According to Johansson, in a relationship, it’s important to speak in a language that helps to convey thoughts effectively, especially during an argument.
Johansson filed for divorce from Dauriac in March 2017 after they separated in January. A source confirmed to PEOPLE that they had been separated since the summer, with Johansson initiating the split. In the divorce papers, she requested primary physical custody of their 2-year-old daughter. As of now, they are moving forward with the legal proceedings.
Following the announcement of her divorce, Johansson issued a statement requesting privacy and respect for her family. She emphasized her role as a devoted mother and expressed her reluctance to comment on the separation. On the other hand, her former partner urged her to withdraw the filing and return to negotiating privately. He expressed his concern for their daughter and his intention to co-parent her with Johansson. His lawyer claimed they had been in negotiations and was surprised by the legal action taken by the actress. He plans to seek permission from the court to relocate to France with his daughter since he believes Johansson’s work schedule would make it impossible for her to have primary custody.
