Ryan Reynolds’ list of accomplishments is nothing short of impressive. He’s starred in a number of blockbusters, fathered two (soon to be three) children, and was even awarded the nation’s top honor, People’s Sexiest Man Alive. But perhaps most awe-inducing is his ability to troll his wife, actress Blake Lively. To be fair, the trolling often goes both ways, but Reynolds’ recent pranks in honor of Lively’s birthday take the cake (see what we did there?).
For previous birthdays, the famous couple trolled each other by sharing photos with the other cut out of the frame. Last Valentine’s Day, Reynolds also “baked” a “cake” made of glue for his wife. This year for her birthday, however, he kicked things up a notch with an epic photo series of the couple. At first glance it seems sweet, but then you’ll quickly realize that in all of the ten photos Reynolds shared on Instagram, Lively is looking, um…less than prepared for the camera.
The actress, who is pregnant with the couple’s third child, is either blinking, looking away or blurry in the photos. Reynold’s caption says simply, “Happy birthday, @blakelively”, but the images do all the talking. Though his effort was valiant (and the result pretty funny), many users point out that Blake Lively is basically incapable of taking a bad photo. “It looks like he went through his phone to find the worst pictures of her and this was the best he could do…she’s just beautiful in general.” one wrote on his post.
Jokes on you, Ryan.
