Leave it to Ryan Reynolds to make talking about Blake Lively split rumors a joking matter. The 41-year-old actor recently walked the red carpet for the NYC premiere of A Quiet Place on Monday, April 2, where he addressed rumors that he and his wife’s marriage was on the rocks. Following the premiere — in true Ryan fashion — made a joke about addressing the rumors in a light-hearted tweet.
“We’re never splitting. She’ll always be my mom. No matter how much jazz-cabbage she smokes with her rollerblading friends,” Ryan tweeted in response to a tweet that read, “Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) joins Blake Lively and his mom on red carpet after shutting down split rumors.”
Ryan’s mom, Tammy Reynolds, joined the couple on the red carpet for friends Emily Blunt and John Krasinski‘s new horror flick. Emily revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she’s a big fan of the couple: “They’re so cute! Cutest, cutest, cutest. They’re the best!”
This isn’t the first time Ryan has poked fun at his marriage to Blake. On Saturday, March 31, he responded to rumors that he was struggling to spend “quality time” with the 30-year-old actress. “I wish. I could use a little ‘me time,'” he tweeted.
We think it’s safe to say that Ryan and Blake’s marriage isn’t in jeopardy. The couple likes to poke fun at each other, but they’re also very much in love. The parents to daughters James, 3, and Ines 18 months are also the first to admit that the public’s perception of their marriage isn’t always accurate.
“It’s nonsense. It simplifies people. Not all men, but a subsection of men, have a desire to understand and control women,” Blake told Glamour in 2017. “To do that, you have to paint them into this thing you can wrap your head around. But women are complex. It also is [a reminder] that what you see in the media is not real life. The night before an interview, I have complete anxiety: How is this person going to spin me? So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’ — they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick.”
