During Ryan Reynolds’ wildly successful PR push for Deadpool, he and Blake Lively attended the amfAR gala in NYC. Also there? Blake’s ex-boyfriend, Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo and Blake dated for about six months in 2011, and it is now widely believed that not only did Blake dump Leo for Ryan, but Ryan might have even “stolen” Blake from Leo in the middle of a double-date. So, what happened when Leo and Blake’s eyes met after all this time? Hm…
Having a superhot wife has its downside – just ask Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds was steamed at the recent amfAR Gala when Leonardo DiCaprio flirted with his ex-fling, Ryan’s leggy wife Blake Lively!
“Every time Blake was in Leo’s line of vision, he was winking at her and grinning – Ryan was furious,” said a fellow partygoer at the Feb. 10 bash, adding that Blake didn’t do much to discourage Leo, with whom she has a fleeting romance in 2011.
“I’ll bet Blake loved it! She tried to pretend that she didn’t notice what was going on at the gala, but she totally did,” tattled the spy, adding that Reynolds managed to keep his cool: “If he wasn’t such a classy guy, he’d have gone over and knocked Leo out. But he didn’t want Leo to know he’d gotten to him.”

First of all, I don’t think Leo is into moms. I mean, obviously, Blake has already aged out of his Girlfriend Parameters, but beyond the fact that Blake is over 25, she’s a mom and Leo doesn’t roll with moms (except his own). But, it’s not like he was actually hitting on her. He was just eyeballing her and yes, if he was doing it, he was doing it to piss off Ryan. For what it’s worth, Gossip Cop spoke to “a rep for Reynolds and Lively” who claimed that Star’s story is “not true.” But that’s just what Ryan would like you to think. Besides, I really don’t think many of Leo’s exes are that hung up on him. Okay, maybe Toni Garrn. But beyond that, I doubt many of them care.
