Ryan Reynolds Shuts Down Marital Troubles Rumour With Hilarious Tweet

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively

If you're going to respond to 'marriage trouble' rumours – as most married Hollywood stars invariably face at some point in their careers it seems – you may as well do it with style. For lessons in "How To", see Ryan Reynolds.

Yesterday, the Deadpool actor took to Twitter to comment on reports that he and his wife, actress Blake Lively, are 'struggling to spend "quality time"'.

'I wish' he wrote on the social media platform. 'I could use a little "me time".'

At the time of writing his tweet had 98k likes and had been retweeted almost 9,000 times.

The actor is known for his distinct sense of humour, often incorporating his wife and family into his jokes. When he won an MTV Movie Award in 2016 for Best Comedic Performance in Deadpool, for instance, he ended his acceptance speech: 'I want to thank my wife, Blake. Everything I do is to make her laugh. Especially the sex'.

Similarly, in a tweet that went viral last year, he posted a 'Happy Birthday message' to Blake alongside a photograph of them as a couple – a picture, which, ehem, cropped out half her face...

And in another tweet on US Father's Day, Ryan joked about the responsibilities of fatherhood: 'Being a Dad isn't just about eating a huge bag of gummy-bears as your wife gives birth,' he wrote. 'It means being comfortable with the word hero.'

Ryan and Blake met whilst filming Green Lantern in 2010 and were said to have started dating in 2011. They married in 2012, in South Carolina, and now have two daughters, Ines (born in 2014) and James (born in 2016).

The pair are one of Hollywood's best-loved couples, which means no doubt fans will find Ryan's tongue-in-cheek response to 'those rumours', a very welcomed relief.
