Reynolds previously praised Lively while on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show“.

“There are a lot of A++ writing that I’ve done that was actually Blake,” he said. “Blake would jump in, grab the keyboard and [say], ‘What about this?’ And I’d be like, ‘That’s incredible.'”

“She’s a really talented, multihyphenate kind of person in this weird… entertainment industry that we work in. She’s helped me so much in ‘Deadpool’, all kinds of movies that have been big successes.”
