In case you were wondering, quarantine has not made Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively call a moratorium on trolling each other. In fact, Lively dragged Reynolds over the weekend for sporting a tiny quarantine ponytail that, if we’re really being honest, we couldn’t unsee if we tried. So, mission accomplished, Lively. However, Reynolds wasn’t going down without a fight — and his clapback proved to be comically on point.
It all started on Saturday evening when the Deadpool star’s wife shared a snapshot of the back of Reynolds’ head to her Instagram Story. It’s readily apparent in the photo that Reynolds hasn’t been putting too much emphasis on trims at home during the coronavirus quarantine. The result? Enough growth at the nape of his neck to pull into a tiny ponytail using a turquoise hair-tie (presumably one of their daughters). “I dare you to forget this every time you see him for the rest of eternity,” Lively wrote.
Reynolds wasn’t going to let Lively have the last laugh, though. He reposted her Story to his own Instagram Stories — adding his own special caption. “Clearly your birth control doesn’t work, so…” he hilariously quipped. And, c’mon, he’s got a point. Baby ponytail and all, Lively keeps procreating with this man. Their current tally is three kids: daughters James, 5, Inez, 3, and a third daughter they haven’t yet officially introduced to the world.
Really, you might say that Lively only has herself to blame for her husband’s, ahem, interesting quarantine ‘do. During a recent video appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Reynolds revealed that his wife is in charge of his haircuts until he can get back to a professional.
“Blake is going to give me a haircut,” she told Colbert. “She did this once before. It took two-and-a-half hours. And then it looked like she had done the whole thing using only a lighter or, like, those gloves that are made of sandpaper. It would have been a little faster if she had just rubbed my head until the hair disappeared.”
Hm, something tells us that perhaps Lively’s weekend snapshot of Reynolds’ neatly wrangled rat tail (hey, we call it like we see it) was retaliation for his remarks about her hair-cutting skills. Either way, these two are hilarious, and we’re grateful for the quality quarantine content.
They can be sweet, too! Check out times Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were romantic with each other.
