Ryan Reynolds on Blake: ‘I would never walk out of the house without her approval’

Is it possible to say that Ryan Reynolds seems genuinely happy these days? While I have my doubts about whether his marriage to Blake Lively will stand the test of time, I do think that for now, during the honeymoon stage, he’s the happiest he’s ever been. Blake and Ryan seem to be a better match – purely on superficial terms – than Ryan and Scarlett Johansson.

Anyway, Ryan was in Barcelona a few days ago for the premiere of his new animated movie, Turbo. I saw the trailer for Turbo – it’s an animated film that seems tailor-made for NASCAR dads and their sons. Ryan brought Blake along for the Barcelona trip, and while she didn’t walk the carpet with him, they did get photographed going out to dinner later that evening – go here to see. While on the red carpet, Ryan admitted that Blake dresses him completely:

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with actor Ryan Reynolds in at the Barcelona world premiere of his new animated film, “Turbo,” where he dished on wife Blake Lively’s approval of his wardrobe and his other summer flick, the action comedy “R.I.P.D.”

While Lively was absent on the red carpet, she did sign off on Ryan’s blue button-down shirt and coral tie ensemble. Reynolds said, “I would never walk out of the house without her approval.”

When asked about a potential box office rivalry between “Turbo” and “R.I.P.D.” – which are being released just two days apart – Ryan quipped, “It’s Ryan Reynolds vs. Ryan Reynolds at the box office. You’re going up against yourself… which one wins?”

I can believe that. I’ll buy that Blake fancies herself some kind of styling expert and that she gets to vet Ryan’s clothes. He has been dressing better lately, but it’s not like he had bad style in the first place. His biggest problem (I thought) was that he tended to wear too much makeup on the red carpet. Otherwise, his suits always fit and he always looks clean and that’s really all I ask for.

Here are some photos of Ryan at the Turbo premiere in Barcelona. Gurl, why are you so orange? I do like his “arrow” tie clip/pin though.

    His outfit makes me think of an ice cream cone for some reason.

  2. two_seconds_ago says:

    HAHA! Because Blake is such an important fashion icon…

  3. brin says:

    They are more private than I would have expected, they seem to be very happy.

  4. taxi says:

    She usually dresses well. Many men want their wives to help them with ties & accessories.

  5. Jess says:

    I wish my husband would let me vet his clothes before he leaves the house. Some days I’d swear he looked homeless.
    More power to them.

  6. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Ryan is looking good! Although, the self tanner and/or the makeup artist has to go! (Blake, you get right on that,hear?)

    Blake and Ryan have my best wishes for a long and happy marriage.

  7. Mac says:

    I think this is quite cute. Although I’m not a big fan of Blake Lively, they do make a cute couple.

  8. Anastasia says:

    They both look like the type of people who will age well, as long as they don’t jack with their face as they get older like so many celebrities do. They both have kind of a “classic” facial structure.

  9. Rhea says:

    Well, good for them. Ryan seems like the type who would like to get an input from his wife for that matter and Blake is the type that likes to dress up her man so they fit nicely.

    As for me, I would mostly let my hubby dress the way he likes it—God, how much I really want to throw out his favorite t shirts!—because it’s just a waste of my breath for a battle I would rarely win. Good thing he would still listening for my opinion whenever we’re out for a formal occasion. :)

    That tie is not well tied…

  11. Nev says:

    His trousers didn’t need a belt.

  12. gogoGorilla says:

    See, I read this headline as “I won’t do anything or go anywhere without her approval” and I immediately assumed he was projecting his behavior onto her, because he is rumored to be very controlling.

    Tsk. I see it is just about his wardrobe. Love that Members Only jacket. I think I had the same one in the 80s.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Uh…say, ryan…whipped much???

  14. mercyme says:

    Well his style has much improved in the last couple years. 2011 seemed to a turning point. I assumed he had gotten a stylist, and in truth he may have (a real one, not Blake lol.) He’s become one of the best dressed men in the business, imo. Even that dweeb haircut (for a movie) can’t ruin it. ;)

  15. RobN says:

    He doesn’t really seem to grasp the purpose of a tie clip.

  16. lovegossip says:

    Ok, I can’t ignore that oddly shaped thing that looks kinda like it is poking “down there” in the last picture. Is it my imagination? :-D

  17. Alyce says:

    I like them together. I’m hoping that they’ll wow everyone by lasting for a long time

    • Turtle Dove says:

      Me too. I like them.

      Ryan seems very traditional and I think Blake is too (perhaps more than we think). they both have large families and their parents are still together. They are a much better fit. I can’t imagine Blake being with Leo at all. They were like vinegar and water. Ryan and Scarlett were no better.

    The shirt is too small and you can see he is wearing an orange undershirt that matches his tie…look at the pic where he is bending over to take a pic. Funny. She married an older dude and trying to make him younger. Yes, he is cute….but buy at least a medium not a small in a shirt????

  19. Nerd Alert says:

    I think it’s a pin, the arrow. It points at his heart. Probably a token from Blake.

  20. WhiskeyGirl says:

    Turbo’s not just for NASCAR dad’s to take their sons to…this NASCAR mom can’t wait to take her son to it! :)

  21. lrm says:

    I never watched gossip girl and haven’t seen her in anything, and in candid pics we’ve seen of her, she’s gorgeous. I also tend to like her style, personally. And while I do see the ‘gerbil’ thing with RR, I also think he’s attractive-i mean, he’s one of those ‘cute guys’ you see out and about…not drop dead gorgeous but good looking and carries himself well. They seem well matched, so good for them. And yea, way more private than I thought and that is a good thing. She does not bother me yet.

  22. LondonLady says:

    He just looks very preppy now, compared to a bit edgy before. I would go with the Stylist, although on her own its not bad!

  23. Jarredsgirl says:

    Hes cute. She’s cute. Love em!
    Love the coral tie, too.

  24. Cletus says:

    I can’t stand B.L. I don’t know why… she must remind me of someone, somehow. I can’t put my finger on it but… I when I see pictures of her, I try to Force Choke her. Maybe it has to do with who she married, When I see pictures of R.R., I try to get him pregnant with just the virility of my stare. If they end up with a red-headed Jew-y baby, it’s mine. And Ryan birthed it. That’s all I’m saying.
