Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds gave the paparazzi a look at their Parisian lunch date style as they were photographed holding hands at La Poule au Jar. Lively mixed prints, wearing a long open navy pinstripe top with a floral white dress underneath. She carried a bright pink purse and wore white sneakers with navy striped socks. Reynolds wore stripes too, pairing an open striped button-up with a white T-shirt.
Both Lively and Reynolds have film projects that were halted production due to the writers’ and actors’ strikes. Reynolds’ film Deadpool 3, which was shooting in London, stopped its production immediately after the SAG-AFTRA strike commenced earlier this month. Lively’s film It Ends With Us halted its production earlier when the Writers Guild of America strike began.
Over the weekend, Lively generated headlines when she shared a photo of herself looking toned in a red high-waisted bikini. She made a joke about Reynolds in the comments section when someone asked her, “How have you had four kids???”
She tagged her trainer Don Saladino as the answer, writing, “@donsaladino Wait. No. That’s not how. He’s not the father. He’s just the one who helps me fit into (some of) my clothes again after. He’s an even better person and friend than trainer. And that’s saying a lot. ❤️”
Lively welcomed her and Reynolds’ fourth child earlier this year. The actress subtly revealed the birth when she posted a photo of herself visibly not pregnant on Super Bowl Sunday.
