Ryan Reynolds Hilariously Recalls Telling Wife Blake Lively That He “Slipped Into Someone’s DMs Again”

You can definitely count on Ryan Reynolds to spark a friendship with just one message.

As the Adam Project star recently revealed, he and Rob McElhenney quickly became friends after Ryan slipped into his DMs to compliment the actor on an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

And although Ryan noted that he doesn't slip into DMs all that often, this particular news would change everything as the two would eventually buy the third-oldest professional football club (aka football club) in the world, Wrexham A.F.C. A decision - shared as Ryan - he revealed to his wife Blake Lively afterwards.

"After you got in touch about this absolutely insane idea," Ryan said to Rob. "I remember seeing Blake and saying, 'I have bad news and I have really bad news. The bad news is I slipped into someone's DMs again. The really bad news is I may have bought half of a fifth tier national football league in Wales.'"

How did Blake react to such big news? "Not good," Ryan admitted jokingly. "Not great, we're still working on it."

And as Rob recounted, their big purchase came before they met in person - with the couple capturing their first meeting in their forthcoming documentary, Welcome to Wrexham.
As seen in the film's trailer (which aired in late July), the two actors recognize that they face their fair share of challenges as co-owners. In the clip, Ryan admitted, "I think the biggest challenge is getting the community to look around and be like, 'What the hell are these two guys doing here?'"

And when a young fan asks them why they're moving, Ryan replies with the plain old truth. "We didn't have a direct connection," he said. "It was just a feeling."
Fans can capture even more of those feelings when "Welcome to Wrexham" premieres on FX on August 24th.
