But Salma Hayek was, because of course she was. And she was kind enough to document the magic that happens when Lively and Reynolds throw a dinner party and put it on Instagram so all of us normal people could see it.
In the photo, Hayek is balancing Lively and Reynolds’ youngest daughter, Ines, on her hip while she does the cooking and Reynolds looks on from in the background, not helping at all to host the dinner party he’s having at his house.
“When your friends invite you for dinner and you end up doing all the work,” Hayek captioned the shot.
Lively isn’t shown in the shot, presumably because she’s the one behind the camera. Also, can we all just take a moment to admire that kitchen? I would cook so many things in the kitchen. It’s so huge and nice, and look at all those matching copper appliances! Has Lively just been casually creeping on my Pinterest boards?
It’s unclear why Hayek is doing the cooking, because we already know Lively is a dang champion in the kitchen. That’s how she locked down Reynolds, after all, because that adage that says the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach is definitely true.
Anyway, clearly our invites for this just got lost in the mail. We’ll be at the next one, for sure.
