Scarlett Johansson on Co-Parenting With Ex-Husband: We Do As Good As We Can

The 'Marriage Story' actress, who divorced Romain Dauriac in 2017, admits while she had never experienced anything like it, she learned that they need to respect one another to make it work.

AceShowbiz - Scarlett Johansson is happy with how she and her ex-husband Romain Dauriac are coping with co-parenting.

The American actress, 35, and Romain married in 2014, the same year she gave birth to their daughter Rose, but divorced in 2017.

Scarlett, who is now engaged to "Saturday Night Live" writer Colin Jost, says she and Romain are still on good terms and she's happy with how they manage with co-parenting Rose following their divorce.

"We do as good as we can. I'd never experienced anything like it before so there was no rule book, but if you have respect for the other person, then that's important," she tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper. "You each need to respect the other as a co-parent, and I think we try to act from that space."

The "Black Widow" star says that being a parent has also made her more aware of how little one can control in life.

"You can't anticipate anything with kids, and it's an incredible life lesson where sometimes you just have to sit in the moment and be there and that's it."

"You just have to be present with whatever is happening," she adds.

Scarlett also reveals that she drew on her relationship with Romain while filming critically acclaimed Netflix movie "Marriage Story", in which she plays one half of a couple whose union is disintegrating.

"I don't necessarily think you have to have lived the experience of the character you're playing, but there's obviously stuff in there," she muses. "For me, more than being a divorcee, was the fact I was a parent and was now having the experience of co-parenting."
