Can you believe that this was Ryan Reynolds’ third engagement? Yup. First was Alanis Morisette back in 2004 (though the Canadian mega-couple never married). Then there was Scarlett Johansson in 2008. And then Ms. Blake Lively, whom he started dating while they shot Green Lantern together. Sure puts Blake’s no-previous-engagements to shame. Reynolds and Lively tied the knot in September.

The word love will now formally be changed to Chavril in all Canadian dictionaries.

Maybe more of a step sideways, I guess.
