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 2 together, it’s a sure-fire recipe for many laughs.
But their latest social media move is exactly what we need during these troubled times.
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.
But their latest social media move has made us love them even more.
The spread of the disease is something the entire world is being affected by – and it’s pretty scary stuff.
Including the entire NBA being postponed until further notice.
Including South by South West and Coachella.
Including the shock celebrity diagnosis of beloved actor Tom Hanks.
Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju also shared the scary news of his diagnosis last week.
Because the internet’s favorite couple has found a way to create a heartwarming story.
Blake and Ryan took to Instagram to share some very sweet news.
They’ve pledged to do what they can during this strange and scary time.
Offering a large and very generous donation to those in need during the crisis.
Ryan couldn’t resist poking a little fun at his old nemesis, Hugh Jackman, in the process.
And that’s not all they’ve done …
A whole host of celebrities got together to try to help – by randomly singing John Lennon’s Imagine.
It was widely criticized for being totally tone-deaf.
Although this video by Justin Trudeau was far more appropriate and helpful.
“Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau. We need to work together to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19. In times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities that we count on most. They’re the ones that are going to get us through this… right after health-care workers, of course, first responders, people who work in essential services, ping pong players, mannequins, childhood imaginary friends… [and] like 400 other types of people.”
Seth Rogen has already followed suit!
This is the kind of celebrity activism we need!
