Hollywood stars have hot and happening lives and fans have always been interested in them. Their lives have been the subject of intrigue, scandal and often spilt into their careers, making or breaking them.
Recently, thanks to him being cast as the ‘Merc with the mouth’ Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds has been the subject of fame again. Blake Lively and he have dozens of videos on social media sites about how they are really great friends even inside their marriage. It seems they really have a life that is a bed of roses.
Unlike most Hollywood romances, the couple did not burn up in the throes of passion intensely only to burn out. It is common knowledge that they met on the set of Green Lantern where they played each other’s love interests.
A beautiful friendship
Right from the beginning, the couple has never been too showy about their relationship. Love that burns too hard and bright never stays. You know what they did instead?
Like every other great couple, they became friends. They communicated better that way and they could see their friendship getting stronger and better with each day. The undercurrents of love were always there, but friendship made the initial awkwardness go.
That is what strengthened the couple and made them go through the relationship. As a matter of fact, both Lively and Reynolds were in committed relationships when they met: Lively to Penn Badgley and Reynolds to Scarlett Johansson.
After a couple of years of the paparazzi getting only glimpses of them brushing hands or holding them did they tie the knot; by then, Lively had made a couple of trips at least to Reynolds home and his parents’ in Vancouver.
The secret to the strength of their relationship is that they rarely share personal details with reporters, who would obviously be interested to know.
Both of them, since they could afford it, live about an hour and a half away from the hustle and the bustle of New York. It is evident from their social media that humour is what keeps the both of them going. They are always making jokes about and with each other which is a testimony of something that keeps relationships going- trust. If two people do not share an unbreakable bond of trust, there can never be fun in the relationship.
Their wedding was no less of a fairytale either. They had Florence and the Machine play and funnily enough, Blake’s wedding dress was burnt and with sparkles but strangely, that very spot later came to be her best memory. Ryan Reynolds also very openly talks about how he was suffering from anxiety issues and how it was Blake who helped him through everything, with her unending gentleness and her generosity.
Their relationship has something we all can learn from, how easy they take something so intense and so incredibly beautiful. Their social media is actual proof of how they joke and take digs at each other but still manage to keep their marriage completely sacred and pure.
Ryan has also stated that it was only his wife who made all the effort to fix his equation with his father, something that had deteriorated over the years. Everything they stand for, with their love, marriage, and family is a lesson to all of us.
Love is a beautiful thing, and they are true ideals of how to value it and respect it, never ever taking advantage of the fact that they have it. So, always remember, when in love, take it easy but do not forget to love as intensely as possible, because love like this only comes by once a lifetime.
