Lively couldn't help but troll her husband yet again.
On October 17, the actor announced that he is taking a break from acting for a while in a lengthy Instagram post. He shared the news while celebrating his final day filming his upcoming Christmas musical movie, Spirited, alongside Will Farrell and Octavia Spencer.
“That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago,” he wrote alongside multiple behind-the-scenes photos from the set. “Singing, dancing, and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great @octaviaspencer… Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second [of] working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”
While we are sure Lively is supporting Reynolds in real life, she couldn't help but tease the actor in the comments. “Michael Caine did it first,” she wrote, referring to the recent news that the respected British actor's most recent role would be his last (though Caine has since clarified that he has not retired from acting).
Reynolds subtly shared one of the driving forces behind his decision on Instagram Stories, where he slightly adjusted the definition of sabbatical. “A sabbatical can last anywhere from two months to a year,” a description from Indeed.com reads. “In general, six months is the standard length of time for a paid sabbatical. It gives you enough time and flexibility to such things as travel, study, or complete a major side project.”
Reynolds, however, crossed out those options and inserted the word “parent.”
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have been married since 2012 and share three daughters: James, Betty, and Inez. In November 2020, he opened up being a “girl dad” and the secret to his and Lively's parenting style.
“I just try to be as present as possible. We don’t split up like I shoot movies and my wife shoots movies and we go travel all over the place and we just all go together,” Reynolds said in the Access interview, per Us Weekly. “I think that’s been the best part of it is that we really don’t spend a lot of time apart. I get to spend a lot of time with my girls.”
It also turns out that Lively isn't the only one who likes to poke fun at Reynolds at their house. When asked by People back in August if he has experience with trolls, he replied, "Oh, God, yes, I do. Are you kidding me? I live with one. My wife trolls the crap out of me. Why would I go online? I've got it right here at home.”
Reynolds added, “Even my daughters now troll me, so, like, I'm safe from nothing.”
