While Scarlett Johansson tussles with Disney over her "Black Widow" compensation, claiming she’s out $50 million, her ex Ryan Reynolds could be prepping for a windfall in the hundreds of millions.
The Canadian-born "Deadpool" actor — who divorced Johansson a decade ago — married Blake Lively the following year. In late 2019, Reynolds also scored a tie-up with Mint Mobile, snagging a stake in the prepaid phone provider even as he became its pitchman.
Reynolds soon got to work, pushing the service to his 38 million Instagram followers and 17.7 million Twitter followers. According to a source, the 44-year-old star had a solid source of motivation: His Mint stake is estimated between 20 and 25 percent of the company, according to the source.
