Ryan Reynolds Discusses the Pivotal Moment When He 'Crossed a Line' With Blake Lively

Nov 14, 2016

The deadpan, tart-tongued Ryan Reynolds—Deadpool actor, father of two, and Twitter ingenue—is also something of a romantic, it turns out. Blake Lively's husband shared the sweet story of the early stages of his relationship with the Cafe Society actor in a new interview with GQ, and there is dancing involved.

He said he knew it was "going to happen" with Lively when the two were on a date. The specific moment?

"Probably after the sex," he joked. "No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that's open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, 'Want to dance?' No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, 'Oh, I think I just crossed a line.' And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don't really need to go into what happened after that."

But when it came to the important part of the story, that all-important first-dance song, he was unusually tight-lipped. Looks like even motormouth superhero Deadpool needs to keep some secrets about his love life.

Golden couple Lively and Reynolds, who have been married for four years, welcomed their second daughter together in September.
