7 Times Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds savagely trolled each other in hilarious fashion
A lot of celebrity couples talk about how much they love each other, and while some people might find that adorable, others might find it boring (or nauseating). "My better half," "I love her so much," "She completes me," blah blah blah, we get it. Everything they say is a romantic cliche, bundled in heart emojiis. Also, while it's fun to follow celebrities on social media, and get a glimpse into their lives, you can't help but wonder if they're expressing their true personalities, or just putting up an act.
That's why Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are the best celebrity couple (sorry, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle). They're attractive movie stars that don't use their social media to talk about how much they love each other. They use their social media to troll each other (and roast each other) in hilarious fashion. There's no act here. Through their Instagram posts and Tweets, you get a real sense of their personalities, and the way they rag on each other shows their love more than saying "I love you" ever could. (Best of all, there are no heart emojiis.)
Here are seven times Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds won the Internet.
1. Most influential
Time Magazine honored Ryan Reynolds, naming him one of the 100 Most Influential People of the year. At the party, Blake Lively offered her sincere congratulations - to singer John Legend. Sorry, Deadpool.
2. Happy birthday, Blake!
When Blake turned 30, Ryan wished her a happy birthday with this carefully cropped photo. Hey, you have to admit, he got her good side.
3. Happy birthday, Ryan!
When Ryan turned 41, Blake got revenge. She wished her husband a happy birthday on Twitter, but posted this photo of him and Ryan Gosling. Well, mostly Ryan Gosling. Hey, you can never have too much Ryan Gosling. He saved jazz in La La Land. Never forget.
4. Not even one outfit change
Can you believe how lazy this guy is? I guess he wasn't acting in Van Wilder.
5. No filter
In her upcoming movie The Rhythm Section, Blake Lively plays a revenge-seeking assassin, and is almost recognizable. To play this character, she got a severe make-under, going from glossy to frumpy. Ryan poked fun at her shocking new look by uploading a photo of her on the set with the caption "no filter." Savage.
6. They finally met
On Instagram, Ryan raves about the new movie All I See Is You (which stars Blake) and adds "Also, I married my wife online, so it was nice to finally meet her in person." Hey, at least she didn't catfish him.
Sure, a human being crawled out of Blake's body, but it's not nearly as impressive as eating a "huge bag of gummy bears." Congratulations, Ryan.
Hopefully more celebrity will follow Blake and Ryan's example, and troll each other hilariously on social media. Especially Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It will make this royal wedding coverage a lot more entertaining.
