Celeb couples make independence official

Just in time for Independence Day, a few celebs are officially parting ways with a partner and striking out on their own.

As Maria Shriver filed for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger Friday, George Lopez's divorce from his wife Ann Serrano was finalized, his publicist confirmed to CNN. Serrano, who infamously gave Lopez her kidney when he needed a transplant in 2005, filed for divorce in November citing irreconcilable differences.

Reportedly joining those in the single arena are Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane as well as Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds.

According to Gossip Cop, Arquette filed for divorce back in 2009 but the couple tried reconciliation before they opted to move forward with a divorce last August. Arquette and Jane wed in 2006, and have an 8-year-old daughter.

And then there's ScarJo and Mr. "Green Lantern" himself, Ryan Reynolds. The pair had barely been married for two years before they announced the matrimony had come to an end this past December. Now, according to E!, the divorce is final.

Reynolds admitted to Details in the magazine's June/July issue that the break-up was difficult.

"Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain," he said. "But you come out of it. I'm not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there's optimism...How can there not be? I don't think I want to get married again, but you always reevaluate these things. Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up. I gotta say, I'm a different person than I was six months ago."

    Ryan Reynolds can do soooo much better than Johansen that stuck up big butt and lips no talent hack! She is so arrogant for someone who can't act!

      Yes...I can't stand it when a writer feels compelled to use a big word but gets it wrong. And this is supposed to be a professional!

    It was best for Scarlett to move on. Ryan is as Gay as a picnic basket. He's just in denial. It comes out in his queenie little nasally voice. Scarlett must have realized it after she said "I DO".

    I'm just beside myself! Oh, poor Scarlette...how ever will you move on from your ? As an arrogant and severely overpaid female line-reader, I'm sure you will be able to find another arrogant and severely overpaid male line-reader who will worship your endless brilliance!!! And Ryan....oh Ryan. After parting ways with such an exquisite lip-swollen ditz like Scar-Scar, how will you ever find your way to another arrogant and severely overpaid female line-reader as dynamic as Scarlette "Johnny Woof-Woof" Johansson? America's pulling for you both. Oops, gotta go now...time to WFG (wipe, flush, and get)!!!

    I'm so sad. If these crazy kids can't make their marriages work, what hope is there for the rest of us?
