One thing you can count on in this unstable world is Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively trolling each other on social media. The couple have been sharing funny photos of each other and engaging in tit-for-tat on Instagram and Twitter for years—and lockdown hasn’t changed that.
Take this photoshopped image created by digital satire artist Ronald McDonkey, for instance. Ronald McDonkey put Reynolds’ head on top of a body that is perhaps one of the more absurd depictions of ‘Murica—a white guy in flag underwear and a much-too-small neon “FUN” T-shirt lounging on a Wal Mart checkout counter. I mean, it could really be Reynolds method acting for a role or something.
Blake Lively couldn’t just leave an opportunity like that hanging. She responded to the image by trolling her husband: “Please stop stealing my personal photos.”
The two have been in lockdown along with their three daughters and Lively’s mother. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Reynolds joked about having to make a choice between his Hollywood family and his secret Danish family.
“It was a toss-up there for a minute,” Reynolds said. “Should I quarantine with my publicly facing family or my secret family in Denmark? It was a real toss-up. I miss Luna, Lekhet, and Una very much so.”
“I’m quarantined with my family, with Blake and our three daughters, and my mother-in-law as well. It’s the best,” he said in a virtual At Home Edition guest appearance. “It’s one of those things where it’s a split-second decision, right? You’re thinking, Oh, we’re all gonna be quarantined together. But you’re thinking, Oh, this is gonna be a few days. So you gotta be careful. At least I like the people I’m quarantined with. I love them.”
Social-distancing hasn’t stopped Lively and Reynolds from contributing to relief efforts amid the ongoing crisis, however. The couple donated $1 million to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada and donated an additional $400,000 to help some of the hardest-hit hospitals in New York.
