Today on Instagram, the Deadpool star posted a pic of himself and his wife posing with their mail-in ballots. “This is my first time voting in America,” explains the former Canadian (he’s now a dual citizen of both countries). “I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud.”
Lively followed with a related caption. “It was Ryan’s first time,” she writes. “He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend [sic].”
The jokes were similar, but something else was off: Lively’s shoes (literally). In Reynolds’ pic, the actress is standing barefoot on her tip-toes. But in his wife’s gram, she’s wearing sky-high, strappy brown, red-bottomed Louboutin sandals.
Naturally, both of their comments sections blew up. Which is the real pic? People demanded answers, so Lively revealed the truth via Instagram stories: the shoes were drawn on.
“Can you tell I was so happy to get outta a onesie and vote?” she wrote. “Sure it was an absentee drop off ballot with a mask covering my look. But dammit I exercised my right to vote. And to not wear shoes that ruined my outfit.”
It was nice to see Lively, who has mostly kept a low profile since the birth of her third daughter, Betty, last year. She obviously hasn’t lost her sense of humor, either. After encouraging followers to vote early, she took the opportunity to explore a new career path, tagging Christian Louboutin to ask, “Are you hiring? Barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience avail.”
