Ryan Reynolds has always been an undeniably attractive gentleman, all washboard abs and manly cheekbones. But while I’ve always been able to appreciate him aesthetically, he never really did anything special for my girl boner. UNTIL NOW. I’m sorry, but whoever advised Ryan on his old-timey barkeep meets hipster banjo player meets sexy Amish farmer new look deserves all the awards. I mean, he was a handsome leading man before, but now, with the addition of thick specs, linen vest and a fuzzy face, he is 100 percent DO ME ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW material. Approve!

Blake Lively sure loves being famous, so I can’t imagine why we haven’t been seeing her out and about lately. Does Ryan Reynolds keep her locked in his basement or something? Do we have a hostage situation on our hands? Regardless, Blake’s captor let her out for the Very Important occasion of the “Turbo” premiere in New York. (Do I know what “Turbo” is, or what it is about? No. Will I deign to Google it? Also no.) I can’t always get down with Blake’s style (Serena van der Woodsen’s, on the other hand…), because she always looks like she’s trying just a little too hard to be, like, fashion-y and interesting and avant-garde, but I actually love this svelte, sexy Burberry look on her. Well done, Blakester.
Whenever I see Blake Lively I feel compelled to wail, “Blaaaaaaake!,” Amy Winehouse style (God rest her soul). Sadly, this Blake ain’t no Fielder-Civil, but I suppose she’ll do. The “Savages” actress (what a terrible, terrible movie) has maintained a curiously low profile since she wed Ryan Reynolds back in September, but she showed up on the red carpet yesterday to support her man and his co-star Emma Stone in “The Croods.” Blake does like to make a statement with the way she dresses, so I’m not surprised that she chose this fairly questionable Marios Schwab dress. With those gorgeous gams, Blake can pull off almost anything, but her mini look here is straight out of the uniform-regulation book for a super-slutty marching band. Boob windows may be kinda in right now, but this PVC breastplate is more like a one-way mirror. What do you think?
People has confirmed that Blake Lively, 25, and Ryan Reynolds, 35, were married tonight at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The pair have been dating quietly for almost a year, after meeting on the set of “The Green Lantern.” Mazel tov! Here’s to hoping Reynolds’ second marriage to someone 10 years younger lasts a lifetime! [People]
J. Lo and Marc Anthony. Sniff. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Chin wobble. Demi and Ashton, no last names necessary. Sob! So many celebrity breakups this year, it’s almost as if it’s impossible for love to last in Tinseltown. But let’s stop being negative. Plenty of fun, new couples were formed in just the last few months — here’s a look at 12 couples to watch in 2012.
“Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be.”
– So why did Scarlett Johansson get divorced, again? I was sad — and shocked — when her and Ryan Reynolds called it quits, and it sounds like Scarlett may be having second thoughts. If anything can make a girl long for an old love all over again, it’s seeing them out and about looking pretty cozy with some hot new arm candy (ahem, Blake Lively). [Perez Hilton]
