Ryan Reynolds delivered one of the biggest hits last year with his American action-comedy film Free Guy. The movie revolves around a non-player character called Guy who lives a mundane life as a bank teller in the video game Free City. Free Guy basically follows the journey of the protagonist as he falls in love with Molotov Girl and rewrites his life to be in a relationship. While there were a lot of wow moments in the hit film, one that made the audience stumped was the extremely short cameo of a major celeb.
Ryan received a lot of love and applause from the fans for bringing this celeb into the film. However, it was not the American actor who came up with the brilliant idea. Ryan’s wife of over ten years, Blake Lively, was the brains behind the crowd-pulling scene.
Ryan Reynolds posts a sweet note for his wife Blake
The Marvel star Chris Evans cameoed in the Free Guy to give the audience a sweet surprise. Towards the end of the movie, Evans appeared on the screen while sitting in a coffee shop and watching the live streaming of Guy’s fight with Dude. He seemed bewildered as Ryan Reynolds flaunted Captain America’s shield to protect himself.
Since Blake came up with the brilliant idea of getting the Marvel star on board, Ryan lavished praises on his wife. As per E-News, the actor had posted a story on his Instagram handle to acknowledge his wife’s efforts in the film. Notably, Ryan Reynolds didn’t explicitly mention Chris Evans, but the audience was quick to come to the conclusion by putting two and two together.
“Free Guy wouldn’t be the movie it is without Blake Lively. She was essential in every part of the making of this film, creatively and emotionally, and the cameo everyone is talking about was entirely her idea,” Ryan had mentioned in one of his Instagram stories.
The American actor calls out inherent sexism in the industry
Meanwhile, this was not the first time that the Deadpool actor had publicly praised his wife for whatever she had done or continues to do. As per Ryan, Blake is the one who has written most of his movies that were a huge success. However, the Gossip Girl actor doesn’t receive much acknowledgment or praise for her excellence.
Ryan Reynolds blamed inherent sexism in Hollywood for not giving women their due credit. He also clarified that he has always tried to correct people to let them know of Blake’s work. However, there is a particular section that doesn’t seem to understand it and continues lauding Ryan.
