Some celebrities are so good on social media, you just want to reach through your screen to give them a hug and beg them to be your friend. Or at least smash that follow on your own account, because Follow4Follow is a very rudimentary rule of social media etiquette.
One such celebrity is actor Ryan Reynolds, whose dry, self-deprecating wit plays perfectly on Twitter. Well, it's not exactly self-deprecating. It's more a slightly sarcastic acknowledgement of how great he is.
And he usually ropes his loving family into his routine:
Went to Disneyland because my daughter's obsessed with Mickey Mouse. She was so excited when I got home and told her.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) January 30, 2017
In fact, his jokes about his kids might be funnier than all the dad comedians out there. Move over stand-up comics, Ryan Reynolds is much better than most of you guys. I mean, just look at this hilarity. I can only dream of having half his sense of humor if I had to deal with small human blobs running around the house screaming all day.
Nothing better than spending an entire morning staring into my baby daughter's eyes, whispering, "I can't do this".— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 26, 2015
My daughter loves being buried up to her neck in sand at the beach. Her little face lights up when I come back to get her the next day.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) July 16, 2017
On our 6am walk, my daughter asked where the moon goes each morning. I let her know it's in heaven, visiting daddy's freedom.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) October 16, 2016
Happy birthday to my baby girl! Sad I lost my virginity. But thankful I have a daughter.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) December 16, 2015
On Fathers Day, my daughter smiled at me.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 21, 2015
It was all the gift I needed as I packed a bag and left for 6 years to write a book on parenting.
But he also likes to drag his wife, Blake Lively, into his routine. And Blake is no stranger to social media. In fact, she's quite the queen herself. She loves to troll her husband and is also amazing at captioning her 'grams.
Just want to wish Billy Ray Cyrus the most special, magical birthday ever. I love you with all my heart. Also, Happy Birthday to my wife.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 25, 2016
Being a Dad isn't just about eating a huge bag of gummy-bears as your wife gives birth. It means being comfortable with the word hero.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 18, 2017
But no one messes with the Reynolds-Lively household except for Ryan Reynolds himself!
IBTimes India tweeted some gossip over Easter weekend, saying Reynolds and Lively were having trouble finding "quality time" to spend together:
Upon reading this tabloid headline, Ryan was quick to quote-tweet it and add his perfect response to the post. He wrote, "I wish. I could use a little 'me time'" on the platform.
In other words no, Blake and Ryan haven't struggled to find time to spend together. In fact, the man is begging for time alone. To be with himself. Get it?
As always, fans of the Reynolds-Lively crew are utterly charmed by Ryan's blatant rudeness to his wife. I mean, I might be hurt if my significant other posted this kind of thing to millions of followers as well. But what do I know, I'm no celebrity.
Savage. Love it!— Patty Homeslice (@PattyHomeslice) March 31, 2018
I wonder just how often Blake shakes her head in your general direction on the daily.— Curtis McAuliff (@curtismcauliff) March 31, 2018
This is a very optimistic vision of what "me time" looks like:
This is probably a lot more accurate of a depiction:
Ah, celebrities: they're almost all just like us. Pervy children who can't wait to make a joke.
