Marriage takes work, and for Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, it’s their actual work (as in their livelihood) that keeps their marriage healthy and honest.
Lively appeared on Good Morning America yesterday and revealed the reason her marriage is so successful is that she and Reynolds understand each other’s careers. She said, “In general, yeah, it’s nice to have somebody who understands what you’re doing. Especially because our job is so weird—we have to, you know, like, be married to other people, and it’s all so strange. It’s still strange. It’s never normal, even when we’re both doing it.”
While on-screen intimacy scenes can be awkward for any couple, Lively went on to reveal that working in the same industry as her hubby is a huge advantage because they’re both well aware that what goes into filming those scenes isn’t nearly as sexy as the end result. She continued, “I have friends who are married to people who aren’t in the business, and they’re like, ‘Oh, so you’re not actually making love in that scene?!’ And I’m like, ‘No, no, no, no, definitely not, no.’ So yeah, those elements are helpful.”
That Deadpool sex scene, though.
