Blake Lively Quote About Ryan Reynolds Shows Their Relationship IRL Isn’t What You’d Expect


Blake Lively is sick of people saying her life is "perfect." In a new interview, Blake Lively talks about Ryan Reynolds, their marriage, and how their lives and relationship are far from the picture-perfect image we make them out to be. We've all ogled over the photos of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively on red carpets looking lovingly into each other's eyes, wishing it was us, but Lively says that narrative is something we project onto them.

According to Lively, her marriage has its own share of difficulties, even if they are "champagne problems" like she says. People on social media believe the Lively/Reynolds family is perfect and does not struggle, but Lively says that's just not true. She and her husband struggle with being very shy people in very public roles, as well as other things, the star admits.

In the interview with Glamour, when asked how she feels when people online say she has the perfect body/husband/family/life in general, Lively said,

One thing Lively isn't shy about is how much she loves her family, flaws and all. She revealed that she and Reynolds never work at the same time so one parent can always be with their daughters, James and Inez, while the other is filming, but filming is still a family affair, meaning she and the babies are up in Vancouver with Reynolds while he films Deadpool 2. And when Lively starts filming her next project, Reynolds and the kids will also be in tow. She said,

I won't say this is a perfect thing because I know Lively hates it, so I will instead say that the Lively/Reynolds family being together while filming is a nice thing to know. Lively also says she treats Reynolds like she treats any of her girlfriends when it comes to dealing with conflict. She said,

I won't say this is perfect, but it is v healthy! You go, Blake and Ryan. Keep doing you and that whole conscious communication thing. I dig it.

When it comes to their daughters, Lively said she's still learning to navigate motherhood and she hopes she's able to raise her daughters to be as powerful as they can be. She said,
