If you saw this pair walking down the street in New York, would you give them a second glance? Probably not. They look quite average. But this happens to be power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake lively, and they have figured out how NOT to attract attention and thus be able to enjoy the city without being bothered.They have a large house outside NYC in Pound Ridge, but have been staying in their city apartment with their kids more and more, lately. Ryan’s beard/glasses/hat combo is a great disguise and Blake’s no makeup w/ baggy sweats renders her equally inconspicuous. Just another nice looking couple…
We are IMPRESSED with Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. They look particularly gorgeous in this photo taken at The Adam Project premier (starring Ryan) in New York, but that’s not even why we’re impressed. We didn’t realize how generous they are when it comes to charity – and they don’t go out of their way to brag about it. They just pledged to match donations up to a million dollars made to the United Nations Refugee Agency because millions of Ukrainian refugees are expected to need help. It turns out they have been giving away huge amounts of money for years – a few weeks ago they donated a million dollars to Feeding America and Food Bank Canada – after donating a million BEFORE Covid. And so on and so on… A great example for their kids…
Had to laugh when we searched for SNL’s Bowen Yang on Instagram and found that his Instagram name is fayedunaway! One of his photos features Taylor Swift and Bowen told Jimmy Fallon how the pic came about. Bowen says he was lurking outside Taylor’s dressing room when she performed on the show last month, HOPING he could get a photo with her. When he worked up the courage to ask, he said she was extremely nice and pulled the star of her video, Sadie Sink into the photo with them. Taylor looked around -who can take it? Ryan Reynolds, of all people, volunteered and the result is this cute photo of all of them in Taylor’s dressing room.
Ryan Reynolds is no fool – he knows how to stroll around Manhattan without ever being recognized – no one pays him any attention IN SPITE OF THE FACT that his movie Red Notice recently had Netflix’s biggest opening day for a film. (It was also Netflix’s MOST EXPENSIVE movie with a 200 million budget.) The reviews were only so-so, but the audience seems to really like the film. Despite his current popularity, Ryan knows his beard is a great disguise for repelling fans but most of all, his adorable dog pulls attention AWAY from the actor. Everybody loves a golden doodle. All eyes are on the doodle, rendering the dog-walker practically invisible!
So nice to see that Ryan Reynolds is really a hands-on dad to his cute little girl James, 4. He took her to the Everafter kids boutique in New York and let her pick out a fluffy new dress. James was SO excited about her new purple frock that she insisted on wearing it out of the store. Ryan says he absolutely LOVES being a father and wants a bigger family – he and Blake Lively have two daughters and she is currently expecting again. Ryan says they’re “hoping for” twins – is that a hint?
We love it when celebrities get a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and they are obviously REALLY excited about it and grateful. Some actors downplay the honor and make it seem like they are doing us a favor by accepting the recognition. Ryan Reynolds could barely contain his happiness and he brought every family member he could corral. We knew he was REALLY excited because he included his two daughters in the event and he has always kept them undercover. He’s so protective that we don’t even know the name of the baby in his wife Blake Lively‘s arms yet! His 3 year old is named James.
Ryan Reynolds claims he was devastated when a “lifelong friend” attempted to sell private photos of his baby to the tabloids. He described it as a “shocking betrayal” but we think he’s making a mountain out of a molehill and should not end the friendship. It’s only a PHOTO – his baby is not in danger. Why would Ryan rather have a strange photographer (possibly perched on a neighbor’s roof) get paid for the first baby photo than a FRIEND? Many thoughtful celebrities who have a not-so-wealthy relative or friend are kind enough to hand over the valuable baby photo and encourage them sell it! SOMEONE is going to make money with that picture – why not a friend? Give the guy a break.
Ryan Reynolds loves animals so it makes sense that he would welcome having kids of his own. He took time out from cooing over his new daughter James and visited a Safari park in Canada. He’s in his hometown Vancouver, filming Deadpool and has been using Twitter to apologize to city residents because his filming tied up traffic. At the Safari park he used some greens to lure a giraffe into his car window and couldn’t help planting a kiss on it. He resisted the urge to kiss a jumbo tortoise, however.
Blake Lively is a supportive wife – she dressed to the nines in her black and white gown, perfectly coordinated to Ryan Reynolds’ tux, for the Cannes premier of his movie “The Captive.” Ryan looks a bit pensive – his movie isn’t getting top notch reviews, but he really doesn’t have to worry. He has four more films in the works, so his future is bright. They really make a handsome couple…
