Ryan Reynolds Caught His Friend Selling Pictures of His Baby

In the October issue for GQ, Ryan Reynolds shared a horrific story of how he found out that one of his closest friends tried to sell intimate photos of Ryan, Blake Lively and his daughter, James, inside the delivery room. He said, “A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around. I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks.”

Reynolds and Lively try very hard to not be included in the parent-child online community. Being betrayed by one of his closest friends of 25 years was “like a death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”

All before this commotion he was hit by a paparazzo’s car. He said, “The whole thing becomes so absurd that all you can do is laugh about it and just go, ‘This isn’t the real world. This isn’t how real things work.’ But it happens to be happening right now. And it will pass. And it does. It passes. It all passed.”
