Here's Why Ryan Reynolds Will Always Be Our Favorite Canadian


It's easy to be a fan of Ryan Reynolds. From his epic Twitter takes on everything from parenting to his marriage with Blake Lively, to his Deadpool persona, Ryan is pretty down to Earth. 

So, while you may think you know everything about the 41-year-old actor — yes, he's Canadian; no, that is not him dancing in the "Ashes" music video — thanks to his ability to connect with fans on social media and in real life, you might be surprised to know that there is more to Ryan than his hilarious tweets. 

Just ask Hugh Jackman. But don't worry, we got you covered. 

How did Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds meet? 

Ryan and Blake played love interests in the 2010 blockbuster Green Lantern. However, they were both taken at the time (Ryan was married to Scarlett Johansson and Blake was dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley). Fast forward a year, and Ryan and Blake (both single) reunited for a group date, each bringing a person they were casually seeing. "That was the most awkward date because we were just like fireworks coming across," he explained to Entertainment Weekly. "It was weird at first but we were buddies for a long time. I think ... the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends."
