He definitely has a sense of humor! Ryan Reynolds made light of what could have been an awkward situation for him when his wife, Blake Lively, shared a racy photo of herself with another man to promote her new film, A Simple Favor.

Lively, who plays a mysterious woman who disappears without a trace, posted the promotional pic by @timpalin on her Instagram on Friday, September 28. In the shot, she stands over a seemingly naked man with his legs apart as he offers her a martini. “My turn … @asimplefavor,” the 31-year-old actress wrote as a caption.

Reynolds, 41, had a lighthearted reaction to the photo, replying in the comments: “He seems nice.”

Lively and her husband of six years — the pair celebrated their anniversary on September 9 — are known for trolling each other on social media and elsewhere. “My wife’s been shooting a film overseas so I’ve been having a ton of time to pretend like I’m watching the kids,” Reynolds joked at San Diego Comic-Con in July. “She’s probably filing [divorce] papers as we speak.”

However, their romance is as strong as they come. “They have such a solid relationship,” a source revealed to Us Weekly in August. “They truly couldn’t be happier and more in love.”

The parents of daughters James, 3, and Ines, who will turn 2 on Sunday, September 30, put family first, too. “Their kids are the most important thing in their lives. They do everything they can to make sure they have a normal upbringing,” the insider noted, adding: “When they’re not working, they really spend as much time as they can home and away from all the craziness.”
