Ryan Reynolds, star of the highly anticipated superhero film Deadpool, held a surprise screening of the movie for fans last night. But what was more funny was his wife, Blake Lively’s take on it. The Green Lantern actor posted a selfie to his Instagram account, along with the rest of the theater in the background and wrote, “Well, that went well. Surprising an entire theater full of people with an early screening of #Deadpool. Thank you everyone at VSauce for your help [sic].”
@vancityreynolds who’s that babe in the back?! It was my first time seeing the movie tonight– yes, at the surprise screening for the fans, I mean who do I have to sleep with to get into this movie?! Have to say… Best. Movie. Ever. No joke. #????????L makin mama proud ????
While Reynolds’ post received about 55,000 likes in two hours, Lively’s gained 107,000 in the same time! The only difference was that in her photo, she drew an arrow towards herself and captioned the image, “@vancityreynolds who’s that babe in the back?! It was my first time seeing that movie tonight– yes, at the surprise screening for the fans, I mean who do I have to sleep with to get into this movie?!” The former Gossip Girl star was all praise for her husband’s film and continued, “Have to say… Best. Movie. Ever. No joke.”
Along with that Lively added the emoticons of a skull, poop and an L, which spell Deadpool. This has been making headlines for appearing in the promotional activities of the movie. However, with this post, Lively just gave everyone relationship goals. Several fans left comments saying just that, while others praised her sense of humor. They wrote, “She’s the best I swear,” and, “Omg hahahaha seriously love her. Now I need to go watch a gossip girl episode [sic].”
In the meanwhile, check out the trailer for Reynold’s Deadpool, which is set to release on February 12, 2016.
