Ryan Reynolds Reveals the Unusual Way He & Blake Lively Started Dating

There’s no denying that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are one of our all-time favorite Hollywood couples. (Seriously, no one trolls their spouse quite like these two). That being said, they rarely open up about their relationship and family life.

Lucky for us, the Deadpool actor recently did just that on an episode of the popular SmartLess podcast, which is co-hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett. During the installment, which was released on Monday, Reynolds revealed how he and his wife first began dating.

“I met Blake on the darkest crease in the anus of the universe called Green Lantern,” he revealed. “We were friends and buddies and about a year and a half later, we went on a double date, but we were with dating separate people. We hung out, and we always kind of kept in touch—sort of casually—and next thing you know, she was going to Boston. I was going to Boston, and I said I’ll ride with you.”

According to the father of three, their relationship quickly became a fairytale. So quick, in fact, that after just a week of dating, they decided to buy a house together.

Later in the episode, Reynolds opened up about parenting his three young daughters—James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 1.

“I’m present with my kids and my wife and my marriage is incredibly important to me and that friendship is important to me,” Reynolds said. “Blake and I don’t do movies at the same time. When Blake is ready to do some stuff, I’ll step down and then we go back and forth. She’ll do a film and I’ll be with her on location hanging out with the kids.”

Keep up the good work, you two.
