Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are no new entrants to the small list of couples that are universally loved. (And that have survived) When we talk about couples that are just a class apart from the herd, their name almost always tops the list. Be it their individual swagger and humour or their social media trolls at each other, the Gossip Girl star and Mr. Deadpool, are super adorable in every sense of the word.
And the story of how they met is straight out of a screenplay
Lively and Reynolds met each other on the sets of the super flop, “Green Lantern” and that is probably the only reason they don’t regret doing this piece of work.
They were both dating other people at the time
Ryan Reynolds was married to Avenger’s Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson. And Blake Lively was dating Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley. So, being anything more than good friends was out of the question.
But once they were single, they went on a date together!
Yes! Finally, as their respective relationships phased out, they were single, eligible and even went on a date together. But they went on a double date with other people. It was a fiasco as Ryan now recalls.
He told Entertainment Weekly, “We were buddies then, I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single. We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl.”
Imagine being as gorgeous and as successful and as funny as they are, and still ending up with the wrong person. But the two were smart enough to understand what was going on. They stayed friends for a short while after which they gave each other a shot. A modern tale of love, the two had in real life.
But they do not, AT ALL, take anything seriously. (Except the things they should take seriously, like their daughters’ privacy)
No other couple has achieved this level of trolling
When we say they troll each other on social media, we aren’t talking kindergarten-banter-stuff here. This is all out, “I’m coming to get you” level of trolling. If you don’t believe us, see for yourself.
This is how Blake wished Ryan on his birthday,
This is how Ryan wished her,
But it doesn’t end there. They don’t leave any chance of making fun at anybody’s expense. Once Yahoo Entertainment, amidst split rumours, uploaded a picture of the couple on a red carpet. The two were with Ryan’s mother and this happened.
As you can see, the very funny Ryan Reynolds gave it right back to the folks at Yahoo. And this went out to anybody interested as a notice to stay out of the couple’s personal life.
Well, we wish that the couple never ever ever ever leave each other so that all of us can keep on believing that true love exists for sure!
