Earlier this month, Ryan Reynolds was a guest on the virtual version of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. While he chatted with Colbert, he told Reynolds he was going to be have to face the one thing we all have to encounter during the coronavirus pandemic: an at-home haircut. Reynolds told Colbert that his wife, Blake Lively, was going to be giving him a haircut at home.
There's been no word on how that haircut went, but on Saturday Lively did post a photo of her husband's look on her Instagram story. It looks like she wanted to troll his quarantine hairstyle a bit, too. "I dare you to forget this every time you see him for the rest of eternity," she wrote.
This might have been payback for what Reynolds said about a past haircut Lively gave him pre-pandemic. He said it took more than two hours, and the outcome wasn't exactly professional quality.
"In the end, it looked like she'd done the whole thing only using a lighter or like those gloves made of sandpaper," he said.
They might be having some fun trolling each other while they shelter in place right now, but Lively and Reynolds have been doing their part to help with COVID-19 relief efforts. Last month, they donated $1 million to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. Lively posted a note on her Instagram to announce the donation and encourage others to do what they can to help.
"Remember the lonely and isolated," she wrote. "FaceTime, Skype, make a video. Remember the love that can travel through all this. Communities are stepping up—shopping for the elderly, making lunches for children. We can all do something for one another, even if that’s simply staying home. ❤️"
In the Colbert interview, Reynolds mentioned his mother-in-law was staying with him, Lively, and their three young daughters. It looks like he's not safe from his wife's jokes; at least this pair is keeping things interesting right now!
