Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has taken to Twitter to hilariously mock rumours suggesting he and wife Blake Lively are headed for divorce.

The Deadpool star retweeted an article from the International Business Times (IBT) that alleged the two actors were experiencing troubles with their marriage.

IBT said the couple struggled to find "quality time together" because of their busy careers, citing an anonymous "insider".

That insider clearly doesn't know the famous duo very well, as Reynolds refuted the claim in a tongue-in-cheek tweet.

He says he wishes he and Lively struggled to spend time together - in fact, they seem to have the opposite problem.

"I could use a little 'me time', the A-lister quipped.

The couple has two young daughters, meaning both parents probably struggle to find much time to spend by themselves. 

Later in the article, IBT said the allegations of marital disharmony had been debunked.

Reynolds is a prolific Twitter user who is known for his sarcastic sense of humour.

Just last week he and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot exchanged some good-natured taunts over their respective superhero characters.
