Blake Lively Reveals Why She Loves Ryan Reynolds 'Most of the Time'

Blake Lively Reveals Why She Loves Ryan Reynolds 'Most of the Time'

Blake Lively looks so sultry and summer-ready on the cover of Glamour magazine’s September 2017 issue, on newsstands August 8.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her and Ryan Reynolds being conscious of the language they use around their daughters: “But with my husband, I’m lucky to have someone who is so conscious. My husband was like, ‘Why do I always say he?’ And I said, ‘That’s what we’re taught.’ So he’ll pick up, like a caterpillar, and instead of saying, ‘What’s his name?’ he’ll say, ‘What’s her name?’ Or we’ve joked that my daughter is bossy. But my husband said, ‘I don’t ever want to use that word again. You’ve never heard a man called bossy.’ …. There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss, so to add a negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling. And it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss. So do I know how to be the best parent for a daughter? No, I have no idea. All I can do is share what I’m thinking—and learn from others.”

On people thinking her life is perfect: “It’s nonsense. It simplifies people. Not all men, but a subsection of men have a desire to understand and control women. To do that, you have to paint them into this thing you can wrap your head around. But women are complex. It also is [a reminder] that what you see in the media is not real life. The night before an interview, I have complete anxiety: How is this person going to spin me? So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’—they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick.”

On Ryan’s hilarious tweets about their kids: “[Laughs.] He may as well work for the Enquirer. When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario. He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.” FYI: Read some of Ryan’s amazing tweets about being a dad here!

On why she says she loves Ryan ‘most of the time’: “I said, ‘Most of the time,’ because if I say, ‘I’m so in love with him all the time,’ then you get that eye-rolling, ‘Oh, her life is so great, she’s so perfect.’ So it’s, like, my defense mechanism.”

    the whole interview is about Ryan

  • Ausangel01

    What is she even talking about? Another brainless sad D lister clinging to the “fab life” by talking about her famous husband. How sad is that message. lol

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Ironic so much is about Ryan, when to all intents and purposes – Blake’s projects are far more successful than Ryans.

    He practices his stupid, stale jokes on her before he posts them – and she laughs like they’re the funniest thing she’s ever heard. Way to enable your husband’s MASSIVE ego, Miss Uber Feminist.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    IRONIC, isn’t it? She’s blabbering away about her “feminism” while constantly blowing smoke up her husband’s ass and enabling his massive ego like this is her sacred wifely duty. FEMINISM.

    Is he really all that famous? I can’t name anything he’s been in except for that movie where he’s buried alive in a box and has only a cell phone. And I’m not even sure I’m correct that it’s him in that movie.

    she’s gorgeous but the cover is so ugly

    The reason she loves Ryan is if she wasn’t married to him she wouldn’t be getting all these roles. After GG, she sunk until she got with him then all of a sudden she was offered things she would never have got otherwise.

    the age difference wont work in the long run.
