Later, in a joint statement, the duo announced their divorce and wrote, “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage…We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds met each other on the sets of Green Lantern and when they met it was like a firecracker only they couldn’t come close because they were with somebody else at that point in time. Their friendship grew with time and even though they didn’t intend to date each other, it sort of happened.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly’s SiriusXM, Ryan Reynolds revealed, “We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl — and that was, like, the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across. I remember it was funny, because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single…I think the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends.”
Ryan Reynolds further mentioned, “Next thing you know, she was going to Boston, I was going to Boston, and I said, ‘Well, I’ll ride with you.’ We got on the train and rode together. “I was just begging her to sleep with me.”
