For a supposedly polite Canadian, Ryan Reynolds can't help but troll his friends and roast his own wife over Instagram constantly. And so it came as no surprise that he recently trolled his friend, fellow good-looking actor John Krasinski, while visiting the Animal Embassy, a rescue organization for exotic animals. The whole thing was extremely adorable.
But first, before the trolling, Ryan posted photos of himself with a whole range of strange and cool animals. The Animal Embassy rescues and adopts exotic animals that need extra protection. Additionally, they focus on environmental education and run programs for kids to connect to the natural world. It's an extremely cool place.
Back to Ryan, though. He seemed overwhelmed when he met the tortoise, as he should be! That's a prehistoric creature, right there!
"Thank you @animal_embassy for rescuing this beautiful, big-ass tortoise. And sorry for shamelessly weeping onto his shell. Honestly, it was embarrassing for everyone," Ryan wrote. I understand this sentiment. How can you look at an animal that has hardly evolved since dinosaurs roamed the Earth and not be overtaken with emotion?
It wasn't long before Ryan took to Instagram again to share a whole carousel of pictures of him holding different creatures.
It was in the caption on this post that he really stuck it to his friend. "Visiting with Chris and his @animal_embassy rescue sanctuary continues to be an incredible experience," he wrote. "We saw tree frogs, a baby python, chinchillas..."
Hold on. I have to pause and show you the photo of Ryan Reynolds with the chinchillas because it is just too much. He's got one on each shoulder and, well, you see for yourself...
I know, right? Too cute. Anyway, his caption continued: "We saw...an eagle owl, and he even brought out a real live John Krasinski, who I got to feed from my hand."
Here's the thing. I think you'd probably agree with me when I say that we would all pay money to see Ryan Reynolds feed John Krasinski like a mama monkey from his hand. I don't want to go into all the reasons we want to see that, but we just do.
On an unrelated note, I now have a new phone background. Frankly, this owl looks like it can't handle being sandwiched between two of the most handsome men in all of Hollywood, and I get it. If I was that eagle owl, I would probably start having a panic attack from being that close to those faces.
Also, if Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski hang out, does that mean that Blake Lively and Emily Blunt hang out?! Because I want in on that girl group.
Anyway, I digress.
John was a good sport about Ryan's troll job, gamely replying to his Instagram post, "I need an exceptional amount of TLC to come out of my shell..." We're all right here to give you that TLC, John. Whenever you need it.
