As the most genetically blessed couple in Hollywood, you would think Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were cast to be together. However, the beginning of their romance was a little less conventional, especially when they were meant to be on a date with other people.
Ryan shared their love story with Entertainment Weekly’s Sirius XM radio show.
“I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single,” Ryan explained.
“We went on a double date with — she was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl, and that was the most awkward date from their perspective probably because we were just like fireworks coming across. Yeah, it was like this first weird [date]—but we were buddies for a long time. I think it’s the best way to have a relationship―to start as friends.”
It actually does sound like something straight from a movie, in fact, it is exactly like When Harry Met Sally, one of the best rom-coms to ever exist.
Who says movies do not come true!
