Ryan Reynolds Has Unleashed 10 Premium Piccies Of Blake Lively On Her B-Day

The best part about being in a relationship isn’t the companionship, the halving of life’s drudgeries, or even the sublime, vulnerable thrill of being known. It’s all about taking photos of them from horrific angles, preferably with poor lighting, and somehow liking them more when they look like a rapidly melting candle*.

Ryan Reynolds knows this truth, as evidenced by a suite of photos posted to his Instagram this morning in celebration of his wife Blake Lively‘s birthday.

In ten shots, the Deadpool actor celebrated The Shallows star’s 32 years on Earth. Only the first could be construed as a typically ‘nice’ photo. The rest range between ‘blurry’ to ‘nearly devoid of Lively’, as if Reynolds was a Bigfoot hunter sharing his finds on a closed Facebook group.
