Decorating Christmas cookies may be one of our favourite holiday traditions. Even though you inevitably get covered in sprinkles and frosting, it's just so fun (and tasty)!

Unfortunately, not all of us are gifted when it comes to the craft of icing. Someone who can sympathise? Dad-of-two Ryan Reynolds.

He and wife Blake Lively are always taking hilarious shots at each other on social media, so when he botched a batch of cookies she took her chance.

"Like they’ve never said, like never, ever… Ryan Reynolds is the next Martha Stewart," the Gossip Girl star tweeted.

The 30-year-old mum even shared the pic with her 18.8M Insta followers, captioning it, "…He’s verrry handsome though."

We are in STITCHES!

We're glad he has something to make up for his lack of culinary skills. That snowman looks less frosty and more…bloody.

Instagram users were definitely amused by Ryan's mangled cookies.

"Legit looks like there’s been a massacre," joked one person.

"I’ve heard of killing the Christmas spirit, but you sir, you killed the Christmas cookies. What’s next, a reindeer?" said another of Blake's followers.

We can't get enough of their couple banter! 


According to emerging reports, production on Blake Lively's latest film, The Rhythm Section, has been temporarily halted after the actress sustained an injury on the Dublin set.

Confirming the reports, director Reed Moran who also directed The Handmaid's Tale, explained that the actress was injured while filming an action scene.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said: "Paramount, Global Road (formerly known as IM Global) and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli today confirmed that filming has been temporarily suspended on The Rhythm Section as Blake Lively sustained an injury to her hand while filming an action sequence."

It is understood that the 30-year-old, who shares two children with husband Ryan Reynolds, has since left Dublin for New York following the incident.

Production on the film, which is an adaptation of Mark Burnell's novel, will resume as soon as possible,

The Rhythm Section is scheduled to be released cinemas in February 2019.


When it comes to trolling, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are absolute pros.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2012, are less about the public declarations of love, and more interested in getting straight-up savage with one another… much to the delight of their millions of fans.

We mean, who could forget Blake's Ryan Gosling-inspired birthday message to her other half?!

And while they're often neck and neck in the savagery stakes, Ryan recently stormed ahead after choosing to share an image of Blake on-set in the Irish capital.

As countless media outlets mentioned this week, the actress wasn't looking as polished as normal (that's acting for ya, right?), but Ryan saw his chance and ran with it.

Uploading an image of Blake looking like most of us after a rough session and a night spent sleeping on our mate's sitting room floor, Ryan simply wrote: "No filter."

And Instagram is here for it.

"You guys are too funny," wrote one Irish fan while another follower added: "Relationship goals."

Blake, your move.


Since the creation of the Hollywood machine, we've known that women have had to fight for both the recognition and roles they deserve.

Paid less than their male counterparts. subject to more intense scrutiny and battling an industry which rarely celebrate the older female, women in Hollywood have to grow a thick skin in order to survive the revolving door system.

And if women do seek to have their voices heard? They're swiftly dubbed 'divas' by industry insiders  – something Blake LIvely addressed in a recent interview.

Speaking to People, the 30-year-old actress admits that fear for her burgeoning career stopped her from speaking up at certain times.

"As a woman, you’re afraid of a label you may acquire by demanding fair treatment for yourself that you know that you’ve earned," she explained.

"I think that sometimes you’re not encouraged to stand up for yourself," Blake added.

“It doesn’t even mean in really dramatic ways,” she added. “That just means that if you’re working too many hours, or you aren’t being paid what someone else at your work level is being paid, or if you’re being treated differently than someone else on the crew, or whoever."

Acutely aware that challenging the norm left her vulnerable to criticism, Blake remained stoic when observing the ins and outs of an industry she joined at just 10-years-old.

"I didn’t feel like I could fight for myself in the same way, because I was afraid of coming across as a diva or difficult or demanding," Blake admitted.

Interestingly, Blake admitted she had no trouble challenging injustices which didn't directly effect her – an approach she wished she could have applied to herself.

"I’d encourage myself to love myself and fight for myself, as hard as I fought for other people," she says of her younger self.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have to be one of our favourite couples in Hollywood. 

The pair, who have been married for five years and have two children together, have a lighthearted approach to their relationship, and the most recent example of this had us in stitches. 

Ryan turned 41 on Monday, and Blake took to Instagram to pay homage to her hubby.

However, rather than posting a loved-up snap, Blake decided that the time was nigh to get revenge on her actor husband after he posted a photo of the pair with Blake cropped out for her birthday. 

'Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,' he captioned the pic at the time.

Blake's revenge is the perfect example of a long-running joke. 


A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on

'Happy Birthday, baby,' Blake captioned the post, alongside a pic of Ryan Gosling beside a cropped out Ryan Reynolds. 

Fans were delighted with the couple's jest, and many commented praising their humour. 

Yet another example of why Blake and Ryan are complete couple goals. 


Following the allegations levelled at Harvey Weinstein in recent days, more and more men and women within Hollywood have come forward with their own experiences of sexual harassment and molestation, and Blake Lively is the latest in a brave list.

Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, the actress reveals she fell victim to harassment at the hands of a make-up artist whose conduct ultimately resulted in his dismissal.

After explaining that he said 'inappropriate things' to her and insisted on applying Blake's lipstick with his fingers, the 30-year-old actress said the situation intensified even further in the days that followed.

“I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me,” she revealed, “I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do.”

Despite approaching the production team with her concerns and openly communicating her discomfort, no action was taken against the make-up artist until Blake took her sexual harassment complains to an attorney.

Following an investigation, the make-up artist was removed from the project, but not before being given a good reference by the production team.

"Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood," Blake explained.

It's understood that the make-up artist is still an active member of the industry.


Blake Lively, our eternal hair goals and all-round girl crush, has discussed the potential resurgence of the iconic hit series Gossip Girl.

It's been a full decade since the show fist aired (help, where is the time going?) and Blake is up for bringing Serena van der Woodsen back from the dead. 

Vanity Fair reassembled the cast to ask them if they would consider a reunion show, and Blake was happy to oblige. 


A post shared by Gossip Girl (@gossipgirll) on

'Of course. I'm open to anything that's good, that's interesting, and that sort of feels necessary. . . . I imagine we all would [consider it].'

'I can't speak for everyone else, but we all owe so much to this show, and I think that it would be silly not to acknowledge that.'

This isn't the first time the star has been happy to say she would do another series of GG.

The star previously told Variety this year:

'Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much.'

'But I’ve just learned in life you never say never.'

'Who knows,if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City,' she told Variety.

Leighton Meester, who played the epic role of Upper East Side Queen Blair Waldorf, wasn't as gung-ho on the idea, but didn't rule it out either.

'It's hard to say. If everyone was into it and if the timing was right, you know? I don't want to say, 'No, never . .' 

Seriously, this reboot has to happen, there are things we need to know!


A post shared by Gossip Girl (@gossipgirll) on

Like do Blair and Chuck live happily ever after? Will Serena go back to her partying ways? Does Chuck have any more evil uncles lurking in the woodwork? Did Little J become a hot shot designer?

And most important, is Nate Archibald still a complete and utter babe? (We're sure we already know the answer to that one)


Hollywood actor and father of two, Ryan Reynolds, is known for his hilarious tweets about parenting.

From teaching his daughter that the sun goes down each night because it's made at her, to looking into her eyes and whispering the words, “I can't do this,” Ryans accounts of parenting are refreshingly real – or are they?

Well, before we crush your dreams, here's a selection of some of the actor's best work:

In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Ryan's wife, Blake Lively admitted that the side-splitting anecdotes we've grown to love so much, are completely fabricated.

“He may as well work for The Enquirer,” she said. “When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario.”

She continued, “He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.”

Blake also dismissed the idea that her life is perfect, calling the notion complete “nonsense”.

“The night before an interview, I have complete anxiety: How is this person going to spin me? So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’ — they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick.”

Blake and Ryan married in 2012, after meeting on the set of their 2010 film Green Lantern.

They have two young daughters together – two-year-old James and Inez, who was born in September last year.


As well as being one of the best looking couples in existence, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds proved that they are as in love as ever after last night's Met Gala.

Paying homage to their relationship, which began back in 2011, Ryan shared his feelings for Blake on social media. 

Taking to the very public Humans of New York Instagram page, Ryan had a few sweet and simple words to say about his partner.


A post shared by Humans of New York (@humansofny) on

'She always responds with empathy,' reads the caption.

'She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She'll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old.'

'And she's made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father.'


A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on

'Before he died, she made me remember things I didn't want to remember. She made me remember the good times.'

If that isn't the cutest, most personal public declaration of love, we don't know what is.


Listen up, Gossip Girl fans.

The Upper East Side show may be long over, but the iconic series lives on in our hearts.

So, imagine our excitement when Blake Lively, who starred as party girl Serena, hinted that she would be open to creating a new series of GG.

'Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much.,' she told Variety.

'But I’ve just learned in life you never say never.'

'Who knows,if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.'

'Why not?' she replied, when asked if she felt that Gossip Girl could be resurrected in the future. 

After the success of the Gilmore Girls revitalisation on Netflix, maybe Blair and Serena are the next characters to be brought back from the TV tomb.

So, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are obviously relationship goals, and Blake's second wedding ring is just one more example of that. 

The Gossip Girl star took to Instagram this week to showcase an adorable accessory that we definitely want once we find a Ryan Reynolds of our own. 


A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

The mum-of-two gave a glimpse of her personalised Mrs R ring, which is too cute for words.

The ring is by jewellery designer Alison Lou, a firm favourite with celebs. 

We actually don't even have to wait to find our dream partner, because the designer does a line of Ms rings too. 

The personal rings come in three different colours, rose gold, gold and silver.

They can also be customised with one of five different precious stones, diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and black diamonds. 

We may have to purchase one of our own. 



Many of us focus on celebrities in the spotlight.

Their silky, flowing hair, flawless complexion, designer clothes and sparkling blink makes us all a tad jealous, whether we like to admit it or not.

It's easy to get caught up with them – but what we forget about ALL the time, is that they have a team of people behind them.

They have make-up artists, hairdressers, skin specialists, stylists and social media experts  with them in every move they make.

Not many celebrities remind us about this side of their lives, except for Blake Lively, who wants to teach her daughters that 'perfection' is a myth.

Speaking to Refinery29, the Gossip Girl alum addressed unfair beauty standards that seem to be enforced onto women in this day and age.

"What you're seeing on red carpets and in magazines takes a lot of effort and a lot of people.


A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

"People don't understand that it's all very constructed, [and] what little girls are seeing isn't what [celebrities] look like when they wake up in the morning – even though it's no less beautiful."

Blake goes on to say that her perception totally changed when she had children and that she doesn't want her two daughters to grow up in an unrealistic world.

"There's this awareness of what they're going to be exposed to and what they grow up seeing.


A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

"For me, it's important for my daughters to know that it's not real life. They're seeing me dressed up in all this hair and make-up, but they also see me without that.

"I want them to see both sides, because there is never just one side."

Many of us, whether it's a celebrity or that gorgeous girl next door, try to keep up with the standards that society impose on us.

And while it's all well and good to look your best, we shouldn't be putting ourselves under that much pressure, when we have so much more to offer other than our looks.
