Woah, Ryan Reynolds is (sorta) wounded after getting unfollowed by his wife on Instagram.
The actor, known for his Twitter hijinks and bantz, takes no prisoners, dishing it out to anyone who deems deserving of it.
I mean, saying that, it’s mostly his beloved wife Blake Lively, but this time, she’s shot back in savage fashion.
In a PR stunt for new film A Simple Favour, Blake deleted all of her Instagram posts and followers, including hubby Ryan.
Asked about it by Nova 100, Reynolds said:
It stings. It’s a terrible way to find out that I’ve been kicked out of the house, to be honest. Absolutely terrible.
The actor added he was ‘very sad about it’ before joking he’d be getting no sympathy from his kids – James, three and Ines, 19 months.
[If I told them] ‘Mummy unfollowed Daddy on Instagram’, my child would just fart and walk away.
Chin up Ryan, there’s always Hugh Jackman – your other Twitter piñata – who recently took to the social media site to write a love note to his partner of 22 years, Deborra-lee Furness, only to get smoked by the Reynolds.
I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives. Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later … it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world. pic.twitter.com/VsoDq4HxDw

I gave this 3 months. Tops. I was wrong.

Open mouth, insert foot Hugh! No, but seriously, Reynold’s has smashed it again in his classic, weirdly inimitable style.
2018’s been a weird one so far for Reynolds. Despite the hotly-anticipated Deadpool 2 about to drop, he’s been fending off private life prods from the press.
He and Lively have found themselves having to address split rumours of late, with media reports suggesting they’re struggling ‘to find quality time together’ because of their work schedules.
A source ‘close to the pair’ is reported to have told OK! Magazine they’re heading towards a divorce, even though it’s been proven they’re absolutely not.
We’re never splitting. She’ll always be my mom. No matter how much jazz-cabbage she smokes with her rollerblading friends.

A few days ago, Lively fired a few shots at her husband, again, proving they’re just fine, while not actually addressing the whispers.
The photo shows the couple smiling at each other, and it’s really sweet – but the caption, instead of mentioning how proud she is of her husband, is just a tribute to her hair.
Outside the relationship non-drama, Reynolds is preparing for the release of Deadpool 2, which is released in UK cinemas May 16 and US theatres May 18.
The trailer to the second Deadpool movie only very recently dropped, and it looks like we’re in for a treat.
The Marvel film, starring Ryan Reynolds as sardonic anti-hero Deadpool, is sure to whet the appetites of punters across the world.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool 2′s test scores have come back even higher than the first, as audiences loved seeing the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ back on the big screen.
In the trailer, and in an apparent dig at his wife, Reynolds makes a cheeky reference to one of Blake Lively’s first films The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
Right at the end of the trailer, Deadpool says:
Doing the right thing is messy, but if you wanna fight for what’s right, sometimes you have to fight dirty.
And that’s why Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is pure pornography.
Roll on Deadpool 2!
