10 Things You Didn’t Know About Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds’ Relationship
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of the most gorgeous couples in Hollywood. They are the kind of celebrity couple that incite envy because they seem so perfect, and there is no way not to like them. They are both down-to-earth, genuine and oh so funny, and have now been married for about five years! Despite being two of the biggest stars in the industry right now, they have been extremely diligent about choosing what to share with the media and public and what not to, including keeping their daughter James out of the public eye. Check out 10 things you didn’t know about the amazing pair and their relationship:
10. Friends First
It isn’t anything new in Hollywood for stars to fall in love on-set but, while that is where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met, it wasn’t love. The two were friends for quite some time before a romantic element formed. In an interview Reynolds stated, “We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship to start as friends.”
9. Long Road to Being a Couple
Of course, being friends first was really their only option as both stars were in committed relationships at the time they filmed Green Lantern in 2010. Lively was still dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley and Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson when they were filming. Later that year Lively and Badgley split and she was soon seen getting close to Ryan Gosling as the two had a fun-filled date at Disneyland and she was seen making a separate entrance into the premiere of his film Blue Valentine in December 2010. That same month Reynolds filed for divorce from Johansson who also filed in response, and Lively and Gosling’s short lived romance fizzled out. In early 2011 Reynolds and Lively were reunited for the press tour for Green Lantern, but it wasn’t meant to be yet, as she was soon seen snuggling up to Leonardo DiCaprio, and soon after that year Reynolds was linked to Charlize Theron. In October 2011, Lively and DiCaprio’s fling came to an end and it didn’t take long before Lively was spotted leaving Reynolds Boston apartment and it seemed they were finally heating things up!
