First dates can be super nerve-wracking. You're not sure what you're going to wear, what you'll say, or if there will even be a spark between the two of you. These first date jitters happen to celebs, too, but power couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively seem to have avoided them by happenstance.
The two were friends while filming The Green Lantern in 2011, but about a year after that, things took a different turn. Reynolds and Lively finally went out on a date — well a double date — but not with each other. During an interview for SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio Deadpool special, Reynolds admitted some surprising news about his first "date" with his wife.
"We went on a double date — she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl — and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across," the Deadpool actor revealed. Wow, sucks for their dates, but at least they were present for the spark that started it all, right?
Reynolds also shared his thoughts on what route to take to achieve a strong, worthwhile relationship. "[Blake and I] were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship, to start as friends."
Sometimes, things just work out for the best.
