In pictures: Five times Ryan Reynolds made our day with his tweets

If you want social media posts that tickle your funny bone instead of the overdose of information and opinions that flood the Internet these days, look no further than actor Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter handle. Whether he’s ribbing equally sporting wife Blake Lively or engaging in a light-hearted verbal duel with his friend Hugh Jackman, or poking fun at something or the other, you can be sure he will put a smile on your face. On October 23, he quoted a tweet wishing actress Emilia Clarke and jokingly said he’d ‘moved her birthday this year, as it was feeling a little crowded for me’. Ryan and Emilia share a birthday on October 23, though there is a ten-year age difference between them. He also declared her new birthday would be on February 29.
In a recent dig at his pal Hugh Jackman, who posted a video for his brand Laughing Man Coffee, Ryan, quoting Hugh’s tweet, casually enquires if Hugh ‘sleeps with his wig on’. Who wouldn’t want ongoing virtual banter between Wolverine and Deadpool?
This is more sweet than funny, but Ryan offered $5000 to anyone who returned a stolen teddy bear to a little girl who had lost her mother, back in July. “Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home,” he tweeted.
Ryan, who’s currently shooting for ‘Red Notice’, put up pictures of himself getting a Covid test and despite the seriousness of it, managed to put a smile on our faces with his tweet. “Back to work on #RedNotice. The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over. No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first,” he wrote.
Even wife Blake Lively isn’t spared and in a now classic 2017 tweet, Ryan wished his wife a happy birthday by posting a picture in which she was cropped out. Not to be outdone, Blake responded on Ryan’s birthday with a picture of him with Ryan Gosling, in which he is cropped out. That was comedy gold, for us.
