A new tabloid report claiming Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool 2 co-star Brianna Hildebrand are “getting super close” on set is entirely bogus. Gossip Cop can expose this fake news.
An article posted on OK!‘s website suggests the actor’s wife, Blake Lively, has reason to be concerned about her husband’s working relationship with his 21-year-old co-star. A supposed “source” tells the outlet, “He insists it’s totally innocent and that he’s just invested in her career, but people can’t help noticing how much time he spends talking to her on the sidelines.”
The magazine goes on to say the “young and inexperienced” Hildebrand, who plays a teenage mutant in the upcoming superhero sequel, had a “huge crush on Ryan before she even met him.” The publication’s dubious insider adds, “Ryan helped pick her for the role in the first Deadpool and now that they’re filming a second, he’s totally blown away by her work.” The tabloid’s alleged source continues, “He’s encouraged her to move to Hollywood full time and has been giving her advice on building her career. She’s just starting to get more roles but people hope he doesn’t go too far and land in hot water with Blake.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the production, who exclusively assures us Reynolds hasn’t developed an intimate bond with his younger co-star, nor should Lively be worried about any of her husband’s working relationships. Actually, Hildebrand noted on Twitter last year that she had a girlfriend. And, as for the supposed “advice” Reynolds offered the young actress, no one on the set who we contacted recalls any of that.
These phony stories aren’t anything new. Gossip Cop already called out OK! for concocting fake marriage trouble between Reynolds and Lively when it wrongly reported in 2015 they “lost their spark.” Clearly, the couple’s relationship is still going strong. We also previously busted the tabloid after it made up an article about Reynolds disliking all of Lively’s friends. This latest claim about the actor’s relationship with his Deadpool 2 co-star is similarly fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
