Blake Lively's Comment on Ryan Reynolds's Instagram Is Even Better Than His Hot Photos | 22 Words

If there's one celebrity couple who does social media better than anyone else, the prize surely has to go to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. The pair have independent, very funny social media accounts, but when you put the two together, it's a sure-fire recipe for many laughs. And the one time of the year that fans of the couple really celebrate? Why, it's their respective birthdays, of course.

Over the years, Lively and Reynolds have perfected the art of the birthday troll. But, this year, Reynolds went the extra mile, posting not 1, not 2, but ten different "unflattering" images of his lovely wife. Although the internet noticed that he may have a pretty unique problem with his trolling.

But the pair's latest social media interaction is one of their cutest (and thirstiest) yet.

Ryan Reynolds is one of Hollywood's best-loved actors.

He's probably best known for his role as Marvel superhero, Deadpool - in fact, he even directed the second Deadpool movie.

He's also well-known for something else.

Reynolds has one of the most beloved social media presences in the celebosphere. His Twitter is absolutely loaded with golden moments, often making fun of being a husband and a father.

Reynolds' wife is the stunning Blake Lively.

She's had an impressive movie career, although many would argue that her most famous role is still that of privileged socialite, Serena van der Woodsen, in teen soap, Gossip Girl.

The pair are undeniably couple goals.

Aside from being two of the most attractive people on the planet, they also seem to have an excellent sense of humor when it comes to their relationship.

Which is often depicted on social media.

Reynolds often takes to Twitter and Instagram to poke fun at married life and fatherhood.

But there's one time of year in which Reynolds really shines.

Around the time of his wife's birthday, he often comes up with ingenious ways to share a sarcastic tribute to Lively - like this iconic poorly-cropped photo.

Though Lively gives as good as she gets.

On Reynolds' birthday, in response, she posted a tribute to the other famous Ryan - Ryan Gosling - cropping out her husband in the process.

Here's another classic birthday troll.

Nothing says "I love my wife," like being more focused on the celebrations of an aging country star than her own special day.

But, this year, Reynolds went the extra mile.

In his need to upstage his previous birthday tributes to Lively, he shared a collage that he'd clearly been working on all year.

Yep, that's right.

A whole selection of images of Lively looking not quite her polished best.

They included some classic Reynolds tropes.

For example, the ole crop-out - in which Reynolds posts what is technically a couple-selfie, but really barely includes his lovely wife.

The images tended to feature Lively looking unprepared for the camera.

And so generally show her with her eyes closed, mid-blink - and often feature some unappealingly blurry camerawork.

Fans noticed something hilarious.

In every picture featuring the pair, while Lively looks less than her best, Reynolds is always absolutely working the shot.

But fans also noticed something else.

It's true that these images of Lively are a little different to the uber-posed, made-up shots that we're used to seeing.

But, honestly?

Lively doesn't really look bad, per se, in any of the images. Sure, she looks a little unprepared and poorly posed, but she's still undeniably a ten out of ten. Did your plan kind of back-fire on you, Ry?

In this image, for example, she looks... fine?

As one commenter puts it, "There are no bad pictures of @blakelively." We kind of have to agree.

Many people have noticed the same thing.

As one Facebook commenter put it, "Blake can never look unflattering I think that was the whole point. They are a very cute couple ... Happy birthday Blake!"

Well, maybe apart from this one.

But only one of the ten being an actual bad photo is pretty good innings for Lively - although that's hardly surprising.

Although many have loved the post.

The fact that Lively can be so undeniably attractive and still manage to have a sense of humor about how she's depicted in public is a pretty refreshing viewpoint.

Hats off to both Blake and Ryan.

And long may these excellent birthday posts continue. We'll be eagerly waiting for them! But sometimes the pair are just plain adorable online - as their latest interaction proves.

It all started when Reynolds posted some steamy snaps.

The sexy images were a part of his ongoing partnership with Aviation Gin.

The images were truly something special.

Anyone else feeling a little bit hot? Well, one of his followers sure was.

His wife, Blake Lively.

She was quick to point out quite how hot her hubby was looking - and she was clearly feeling pretty lucky about it.

And to make things even better?

Blake's sister then got in on the action too.

Thank goodness for Lively and Reynolds.

The pair may be the only couple on the internet that still let us believe in true love! Interested in more Reynolds content? Keep scrolling for fifty of his very best tweets.
