If Internet trolling were am Olympic sport, Ryan Reynolds would have a record number of gold medals.
On social media, the Red Notice star is known to have all the punchlines—particularly when it comes to his own wife, Blake Lively. One Mother’s Day tribute to her included the lines, “Never could I have predicted anonymous airport bathroom sex would lead to this. Or how you’d hire Dog The Bounty Hunter to find me.” An Instagram post about voting in the 2020 Presidential Election read, “This is my first time voting in America. I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud.” And for her birthday in 2019, the actor posted a photo dump of images capturing Lively mostly with her eyes closed, looking away or in other states of not being quite ready for the picture.
“You’re an Internet troll,” Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie candidly declared during a Nov. 10 interview with him. While there’s no denying the fact, it’s actually a sign of endearment, according to Reynolds.
“A little bit,” he agreed, “but only when it comes to those most precious to me.”
That of course also applies to the three daughters he shares with Lively: James, 6, Inez, 5, and Betty, 2. Though it sounds like they keep him on his feet as much as he does with his social media posts.
“It’s absolute mayhem,” he said of life at home. “You’re just every day clinging by the skin of your teeth.”
In fact, despite growing up with three older brothers, Reynolds is rethinking his fear about having sons. “My brothers would never use the door. They’d use me to make a new door,” he quipped. “I was always afraid I would have boys.”
“Now that I have girls,” he continued, “I realized I should not have been afraid. I should have wanted boys as well. They’re just as rough.”
