All's fair in love and social media warfare, just ask Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
Over the years, the Gossip Girl alum and the Deadpool star—wed since 2012—have masterfully trolled one another on the Internet and in person. Indeed, no birthday, anniversary or milestone is complete without quippy exchanges, cheeky comments and snarky tribute posts. "We're people that don't take ourselves too seriously," Ryan previously shared on the Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist podcast. "The only people I really love to make fun of is us."
Hey, some people's love language is gift-giving or maybe physical touch. For Blake and Ryan, it's trading barbs. "We do it in real life all the time," Blake told HELLO! of their affectionate back-and-forth. "It was just an organic thing, and I don't know where or when it happened, but all day long, we are just [teasing] each other because that's my best friend!"
And she couldn't help but add, "I always win, of course. And I am not competitive at all."
So, let's look back on the many times that Blake and Ryan—they're parents to daughters James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 21 months—proved trolling might just be the secret to a successful marriage in Hollywood.
You know they love it, XOXO.
