People reports he set up a very cheeky out-of-office message, which included an “apology” to Lively.
“Thanks for your email. I am currently out of the office but will still be very hard at work selling Aviation Gin. For quite a long time, it seems,” the OOO message read. “In related news, I just learned what an ‘earn out’ is… And I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone I told to go f— themselves in the last 24 hours. My lawyers just explained how long it takes to achieve an ‘earn out’… so… turns out I’m not as George Clooney as I thought.”
“The point is, to those listed below, I’m sorry… and I’ll indeed be needing your help in the coming months and years. Thanks in advance!” he continued, before listing out who he is apologizing to. “Mom, Blake, Peter, Diageo CEO, The Rock, George Clooney, Southern Glazer’s, Betty White, TGI Friday’s, Baxter, Calisthenics, AMC Theaters, Total Wine, The Number 8, Don Saladino, Darden, The Head of Alfredo Garcia, Soothing Lavender Eye Pillows.”
September 2020: On September 11, Reynolds posted a birthday tribute to his dog, Bax. It was cute and funny, as per usual.
“This is almost as sweet as the birthday post you did for me this year,” Lively wrote in the comments. The gag? He didn’t post a birthday tribute to his wife this year.
October 2020: On October 22, the couple took their trolling to new heights after Lively shared a photo of her and her famously Canadian husband after he lost his U.S. voting virginity. She wrote, “It was Ryan’s first time. He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend. #voteearly.”
But though the caption was classic Lively-Reynolds banter, fans couldn’t help but notice that her feet in the picture appeared to be photoshopped with drawn-on sandals. Reynolds then exposed his wife’s impressive editing skills by posting the original photo to his own feed.
One day later, Lively wrote that she “can’t believe” she’s still married to the Deadpool actor while wishing her husband a happy birthday on Instagram. She also trolled Reynolds for choosing to blow out his 44 candles on a birthday pie instead of a cake.
“1) Who is the lost soul that selects birthday PIE. 2) What ANIMAL eats their cake (pie) without first blowing out the candles. @vancityreynolds that’s who,” Lively captioned the photo. “Happy Birthday. I honestly can’t believe we’re still married.”
December 2020: Lively has four favorite things from Vancouver, Canada—and Reynolds is apparently NOT one of them. On December 12, the actor posted an Instagram story revealing her four favorite things from her husband’s hometown, starting with pie, ice cream, and doughnuts from local shops.
Your move, Reynolds.
March 2021: Reynolds watched Green Lantern for the first time and live-tweeted it. Of course, he was sure to troll Lively in the process:
For context: Lively and Reynolds first met filming Green Lantern.
