Blake Lively truly Photoshopped fake shoes on herself for her ‘Vote’ Instagram

A few days ago, I was truly thinking to myself “I wonder what Blake Lively is up to?” It’s not that I miss her, I just think it’s weird that someone who used to be so ubiquitous in the gossip/celebrity world can just disappear for months at a time now. I know Blake and Ryan Reynolds spend most of their time outside of the major hubs of gossip now (NYC and LA) and they likely live somewhere in upstate New York most of the time? So that’s probably where they vote now too – Ryan is an American citizen, he naturalized a few years ago and this is likely the first presidential election in which he’s been able to vote.

So, Blake posted this photo where she and Ryan are voting early, with a nice message about how it was Ryan’s first time and he cried. Cute, right? Except people were like “what’s up with her shoes??” Ryan posted the same image, and Blake is clearly barefoot (and on her tippy-toes) in the photo. As it turns out, Blake decided to Photoshop some shoes on her feet. For an IG about voting!!

Ryan and Blake then joked about it on their IG Stories, and Blake basically said that she was so happy to be out of a onesie and something about shoes ruining her look, and none of it makes any sense? Why didn’t she just put shoes on, damn.

    Her pants look really uncomfortable.

  2. Beep says:

    On another site it was mentioned that she has a contract with louboutin and was probably wearing another brand of shoes. She can’t be photographed wearing an other designer’s shoes, so she took them off for the pic and drew in… these.

    • lola says:

      That makes actually sense

    • Mignionette says:

      I also saw another poster comment that she can’t mix ‘political’ posts with products of said sponsor so likely why she could have taken the shoes off also.

      • AMA1977 says:

        Just saying “go vote!” isn’t political, though. It is civic-minded. If she’d endorsed a candidate, that would be political. It makes more sense to assume she was wearing a brand that she’s not contracted to represent and her contract stipulates that she can’t be photographed in a competitor’s shoes. Of course, in that case, wear an outfit with shoes for the brand you rep if you know you’re going to post your “I voted!” selfie.

    • julia says:

      LOL. She could have picked any colour other than poop brown.

    • Ella says:

      Wait, she can’t be photographed in non-Louboutins AT ALL? Not even in personal pics posted to her Instagram account (as opposed to public events)?

  3. Redder says:

    I feel like I’m the only who can’t stand these two. They both are so try hard, and Blake has a problematic past of saying and doing ignorant stuff, but she always gets away with it, because she’s a “cute”, bubbly blonde.

    • shanaynay says:

      No, you’re not alone. I cannot stand them either. To me, they are annoying AF!!! She comes off as being very pretentious.

    • Lee says:

      Same here! Glad I’m not alone! LOL
      They try too hard to sell this perfect picture couple thing. Nothing ever seems authentic with them, their posts on social media seem so carefully planned and crafted.
      Also, she always needs to tag every damn brand she wears, she did the same with her birthday IG stories. So lame and pretentious.
      And they’re not as funny as they think they are imho. Even his feud with Hugh, it was funny the first 2/3 times but not anymore.

    • lola says:

      Can’t stand them either. They’re too much with their “cute online banter”.

    • Sankay says:

      You are not alone. All contrived.

      • Aoife says:

        Yes! Sounds so contrived as to be cringey. “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.” And he wept? Sounds like he’s talking about something else, not voting.

    • katharine says:

      Oh no, my friend, you are not alone. They think they’re just so cute and clever, but in fact they’re insufferable idiots.

      • ohrhilly says:

        I found my tribe! I find nothing endearing about either of them. I don’t think they are funny. They are valid and annoying.

    • Ashley says:

      I can’t stand either of them. They’re obnoxious and yet pretentious at the same time? Ryan is by far the worse of the two but she seems on his level. They’re kind of perfect fit.

      That said no one ever questions why the over the top social media with Blake but when he and Scarlett were married they never said anything? Or did everyone forget he and Scarlett were married once? Scarlett was too good (and clearly too smart) for him, and his relationship with Blake proves that. Both obnoxious airheads.

      • Jegede says:

        Scarlett “Asian white washing – I can play a trans character – both my husbands were super jealous of me – Dylan Farrow messed my google alerts” Johannson , was now too good and elite, smart for Ryan?

      • Smalltown Girl says:

        They donate a lot of money to charity and promote said charities. Including funding for a program for education for Idigenous Women at a Canadian university and Ryan is donating part of his salary to get BIPOC crew members hired on his sets, but sure ScarJo “I can play a tree if I want” is too good for him.

      • Julie says:

        I’ll still take Scrajo over Blake’s fetish over the antebellum. I thought it’s was hilarious how it was Ryan who issued the apology over having their wedding at the slavery plantation thereby watering down the real criticism. He was able to frame it as simple naivety as if his wife hadn’t dedicated an entire month of website posting to the “glamorous lives” of slave owners. As if she hadn’t been very vocally called out for it. As if she hadn’t ignored all criticism. As if she hadn’t gone ahead to select a slave plantation in full knowledge of the messaging.

        Blake is the type of white woman to revel in racial aggression but think it’s all good because she donated some money once upon a time. I’ll take Scarlet who wears her issues openly

      • SmalltownGirl says:

        I mean can she better? Absolutely. But I feel like she is trying and growing and she is putting her money where her mouth is. She and Ryan have made a lot of donations to a variety of charities in the last seven months and I guess I think that is better than ScarJo who does not apologize, just doubles down because she does not see herself as ever wrong.

      • lola says:

        Scarjo and Blake are BOTH problematic and tone-deaf. Ryan def has a type-Blondes who are racist and Woody Allen supporters.

      • Hannah Young says:

        I’ll wager my house (albeit with a 50 year mortgage) that Blake is MUCH smarter than Scarlet.

      • Sass says:

        Scarlett is extremely problematic in so many ways but the reality is that she was better known than Ryan and he used her just like he did Alanis Morissette (people forget about that one). The truth is he and Blake are so over the top is because their careers are done more or less. Blake hasn’t done anything relevant or halfway decent since Gossip Girl and Deadpool won’t last forever.

      • Lee says:


        I think he understood that the lovely dovey couple picture works wonder for a celeb’s image.
        He came from the harsh divorce from Scarlett and from years of rumors about him being controlling and Blake came from the nudes scandal.

      • Suz says:

        Someone jog my memory – didn’t Blake post a photo of herself on a yacht while talking about an important social justice issue? Like, the most tone deaf post that has ever happened?

      • clomo says:

        Suz, I think it might have been the Australian fires, not 100% sure.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Definitely not alone! Blake’s glorification of the Antebellum on her defunct lifestyle website and her defense of Woody Allen sparked strong levels of disdain from me. Their marriage on a plantation and *very* vague apology years later made me dislike them even more. She clearly romanticizes that era of the Old South and it’s disgusting.

    • ash says:

      I think you are not in the minority here – Blake is very polarizing and has been for a long time. Ryan is NOT nearly as funny or witty as he thinks he is but I do applaud his “one-man” marketing efforts for his million and one projects. He’s still a flop actor though.

  4. Osty says:

    Blake is always fashion goals but unfortunately that pants is weird .
    They are a cute couple though and I love how they make fun of each other

    • LandoLando says:

      I think she looks cute here but almost always overdressed and too much going on. I am a capsule wardrober and I shudder at the thought of the size, messiness, and randomness / lots of pieces you wear only once of her wardrobe.

  5. Eva says:

    This story is totally bizarre but then again it is 2020.

  6. AndaPanda says:

    This is so funny. I’m glad she’s promoting voting and I went through that thread and I’m disturbed something named wikifeet exists. I don’t want any more details about what it is

  7. Rapunzel says:

    It is two different pics. Ryan’s teeth are visible in the shoeless photo, but not in the one with the “shoes”

    But they’re such close photos they were obviously taken at the same time. She wasn’t wearing shoes. My guess? She didn’t want to show bare feet. For whatever reason. It’s weird, but no biggie.

  8. Jegede says:

    I 🤎 her hair this shade. She should keep it.

    I keep forgetting that both Ryans are Canadian.

    Is Gosling now a US citizen as well I wonder?

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Bland overcooked rice.

  10. Lemons says:

    I still want the pants even if everyone else hates them! I’m into the cropped wide-legged at the bottom but hugs the thighs and upwards look.

  11. Jules says:

    Their cute little bantering back and forth has run its course.

  12. niki says:

    I have my reservations about Ryan and his “banter”, but he looks legit happy here, and I appreciate that.

  13. Rae says:

    I like them, at least they laugh at themselves.

  14. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    Wait: did she go into the polling/drop-off place BAREFOOT??!!!

  15. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Apparently she took her shoes off because they didn’t match her outfit and she didnt want to be photographed in them. Which is actually pretty funny. Ryan posted the photo first and everyone of course was like “why is she barefoot?!” And so she reposted on her stories withe the drawn on shoes.
    She apparently has a contract with Louboutin and can’t be photographed wearing other shoe brands. So it actually makes sense if that’s the case.!

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Lol…none of this makes sense! Wear some Loubs or crop out the bottom half of the pic. It’s crazy as hell but funny and harmless crazy!

    • ash says:

      Where is this “brand ambassador” for Loub coming from? She’s not in a contract with them – she pretty much only wears Louboutins though (she’s friends with Christian and she has talked about their friendship before). IDK why she photoshopped shoes on but it has nothing to do with a non-contract.

  16. Atti says:

    I mean… she took off her shoes because she didnt want them in the photo. People do dumb things.

  17. Snowslow says:

    Any outfit that makes me 1) have to wear high heels or doesn’t look good 2) make me stand on tip toes if I am not wearing high heels is a malevolent tool of the patriarchy and I am not playing with it.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Amen! Put some sneakers on! White sneaks would be cute with that outfit. Not to mention the “Hey everyone! Look at mah vagine! Did ya know I has a vagine? Cuz I totally do!!” pants .

  18. emu says:

    Barbie feet

  19. Sorella says:

    Weird story. I bet she didn’t think she’d get busted lol. And gross – to be bare feet in a public place even for a minute – yuck! Why didn’t she just crop the picture – probablly she was feeling her outfit I guess). And I hate the winter on top/summer shoes on the bottom look.

    I feel like I should like Ryan Reynolds, with him being from Canada – but I don’t watch any movie he is in, we don’t like his acting, I find he is a bland Ken doll. It just me who doesn’t find his banter funny AT ALL (even with Hugh Jackman who I like). I always wonder if I am the only one not finding him hilarious” to me he is total try hard. I feel that way about Matt Damon’s “pranks” and jokes too, everyone is like “so funny!!” and I’m like “reall?!”. I am disapointed Ryan became a US citizen, I hate when people do that – but it is likely for tax and voting reasons. He continues to do charity for Canada still , so I like him for that and will forgive him lol

  20. Marigold says:

    I thought this was hysterical.

  21. Julia K. says:

    Love Blake Lively. Mom of 3 girls now. She and husband take turns working so a parent always with the children. Respect that. They seem happy.

  22. SM says:

    I mean, you would think that finding shoes ia not a problem for someone like Blake. So I am confused by this outfit and no shoes. The shotoshoping is even more confusing.

    • Julia K. says:

      @beep says she has a contract with louboutain so possibly took off shoes of a different brand for the photo.

      • Zaya says:

        If she was wearing a different brand of shoes that she couldn’t be photographed in, she could have just cropped it though. It would have easier to do so.

  23. LandoLando says:

    I think these two are pretty private and plus he has that anxiety (from having a very stern father apparently) so they’ve picked that bantering PR approach out of safety and to have something out there for the public without sharing too much of themselves. But, yes, I was bored with Ryan’s cute jokey-ness especially with Hugh Jackman (who appears 100% closeted to me, but that’s his business and I could be wrong) from day one. Her pants are too tight. I don’t mind these two; at least they’re trying and learning. It’s bad to cancel people because they take some missteps 30%, 40% of the time. That’s how you alienate people you need to have on your side. Anyway, he’s a decent dramatic actor – for example, in Life he was meant to take the Jake G role but opted for the one he played out of scheduling priorities and he would have been much better than Jake G – but can’t stand most of his films.

  24. Zackster says:

    She has the worst style sense for someone who thinks she has great style sense.
