Ryan Reynolds Shares Gallery of ‘Unflattering’ Photos to Troll Blake Lively on Her Birthday

Share on Facebook

If there’s one celebrity couple who does online trolling 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 one time of year when fans of the couple can 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 one, not two, but ten different “unflattering” images of his lovely wife. Although the internet noticed that he may have a pretty unique problem with his trolling.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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?

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

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!”

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

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.
