For some reason, us ordinary folk derive great enjoyment from peeking into the lives of the rich and famous. Whether we're scrolling through their perfectly curated Instagram feeds or picking up tabloids, our voyeuristic tendencies are only exemplified when we have a perfect celebrity coupling to get invested in.
The list of fan-favourite celebrity couples is never ending. I mean, who can forget Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder? In the years since that iconic coupling, we have seen our favourite actors, musicians and models date, marry and then inevitably divorce. And while you'd think that after years of reading about their love, lust and heartbreak, we'd bore of it and concentrate on our own romantic endeavours, you're wrong. We're still way too interested in what the top one per cent does.
And who wouldn't be when there's Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively around? Apparently it's not enough that they've both won the genetic lottery, and have illustrious careers in one of the most difficult industries to break into. No, they seemingly have a picture-perfect relationship to boot.
When they're not poking fun at each other on their respective social media accounts, Reynolds and Lively are photographed leading wholly normal lives with their two daughters, James and Ines. But now, there's rumour of strife in their marriage, and the Deadpool star has addressed them in the only way he saw fit...
Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to address speculation that there's trouble in his marriage.
After a gossip website tweeted out, "Deadpool Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively struggling to spend 'quality time'," Reynolds responded to the (likely) ludicrous assertion with his trademark sense of humour. "I wish,” the 41-year-old actor wrote. "I could use a little 'me time'".
Phew. Thankfully there seems to be no strife in Blake and Ryan's perfect union. I fully expect them to go back to normal programming over the next few days, and by that I mean trolling the sh*t out of each other.
Lively recently opened up about one of the reasons why she and Reynolds work so well together, and it has to do with understanding how "bizarre" the whole Hollywood shindig is. "In general, it's nice to have someone who understands what you're doing," she said on a Good Morning America interview. "Especially because our job is so weird—you have to be 'married' to other people, it's all so strange. It's never normal, even when you're both doing it."
The 30-year-old also revealed how awkward shooting sex scenes can be. "It's helpful to know when you're acting that you're in a relationship with someone else, that that's not what's actually happening," Blake stated. "Because I have friends who aren't married to someone who's in the business, so they're like: ‘Oh, so you're not actually making love in that scene?!' And I'm like: 'No, no, no, no, definitely not.'"
Well, there you have it - Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are, thankfully, as strong as ever.
