Ryan Reynolds reacts to Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick's flirty Instagram comments

We're not sure how Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds finds the time to scour the internet, looking for opportunities to write witty-take downs, but we're glad he does.

His latest retort comes after his wife Blake Lively took to Instagram to promote her new film A Simple Favour - and flirt with co-star Anna Kendrick in the process. 

"Anna Kendrick is the hotter, female(r) version of my husband... so, would it reaaaally count as cheating??" she asked.

Kendrick replied "So glad we're finally taking this public. I let Ryan have Deadpool, he can give me this."

Despite being dissed by his wife, Reynolds appeared to have accepted his fate, chiming in to tell the pair:

"The most ambitious crossover event in history. I'll miss you both. Tell my story.

It's not the first time Lively has burned Reynolds online in support of her upcoming movie - she deleted all of her Instagram photos and unfollowed her husband in May.

The move sent the rumour mill into overdrive about a possible split between the Hollywood power couple.

Once Lively started only following people named Emily, it became clear it was a clever publicity stunt for the thriller, which sees Lively's character Emily Nelson mysteriously disappear.
