Ryan Reynolds Trolled Blake Lively Harder Than Ever in Honor of Her 32nd Birthday

When it comes to birthdays, there’s no couple better at trolling each other than Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds (except maybe one half of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend). As you may remember, Lively trolled Reynolds savagely in 2017 on his 41st birthday by posting a photo of him alongside with Ryan Gosling. The only problem? Only one fourth of his face was showing. Well, Reynolds got his payback this year and hit it out of the park when celebrating, or rather, roasting his 32-year-old of wife.

The 42-year-old Deadpool star took a page out of Lively’s playbook and shared a series of photos in which she’s either cropped out, blurry or has her eyes closed. He simply captioned it, “Happy Birthday, @blakelively.”

Above, you’ll notice that it starts out with a picture of a very pregnant Lively laughing with her eyes closed and posing with Reynolds. It’s cute, but when the slideshow continued with a photo of the couple in front of the Spanish Steps in which Lively’s eyes are completely closed, we started noticing a theme. Next picture? Lively isn’t even looking at the camera, but Reynolds conveniently looks great. In the following, she’s sitting in a luggage cart with a mermaid Barbie and her eyes are closed again. In photo five, her eyes are closed yet again. In the sixth, she’s completely blurry. The seventh shows the couple at Taylor Swift’s New Year’s Eve party earlier this year. Again, Lively is blurry. This continues, and we’re left to wonder if Reynolds just chose pics in which he looks good?

It’s the last photo in the ten picture slideshow, however, that really takes the (birthday) cake. Lively’s eyes are closed, her hair is in her face and her mouth is open. It’s a lot.

Never change, you two. (And happy birthday, Blake!)
