Ryan Reynolds might be hilarious, but he’s not factually accurate!
The Deadpool star — who often tweets about things like dropping his daughters off at Burning Man, or leaving them buried them in the sand — is being called out by Blake Lively for fabricating his tweets! LOLz, we pretty much assumed that was the case!
During her interview for Glamour‘s September issue, the 29-year-old admitted:
“He may as well work for the Enquirer. When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario. He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.”
“I said, ‘Most of the time,’ because if I say, ‘I’m so in love with him all the time,’ then you get that eye-rolling, ‘Oh, her life is so great, she’s so perfect.’ So it’s, like, my defense mechanism.”
In fact… Blake doesn’t like when people describe her life as “perfect” at all:
“It’s nonsense. It simplifies people. Not all men, but a subsection of men, have a desire to understand and control women. To do that, you have to paint them into this thing you can wrap your head around. But women are complex. It also is [a reminder] that what you see in the media is not real life. The night before an interview, I have complete anxiety: How is this person going to spin me? So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick.”
And so when raising two young daughters, Blake said she and Ryan are careful with their language:
“With my husband, I’m lucky to have someone who is so conscious. My husband was like, ‘Why do I always say he?’ And I said, ‘That’s what we’re taught.’ So he’ll pick up, like a caterpillar, and instead of saying, ‘What’s his name?’ he’ll say, ‘What’s her name?’ Or we’ve joked that my daughter is bossy. But my husband said, ‘I don’t ever want to use that word again. You’ve never heard a man called bossy.'”
She went on:
“There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling. And it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss. So do I know how to be the best parent for a daughter? No, I have no idea. All I can do is share what I’m thinking├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and learn from others.”
Yes! Parents, are you listening?!
Well… Blake and Ryan might not be perfect, but they’re pretty darn close!
