Playing Ryan Reynolds Reveals Blake Lively Helped Develop 'Deadpool' Character After Golden Globe Nom: 'I Owe Her'

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively apparently make an even better team than we knew!

The Deadpool star, whose superhero flick earned Golden Globe nominations in the Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy categories, revealed during an interview with ET Canada on Monday that his wife had a pretty big role in developing the character.

"I think tonight, we're gonna go out for a nice dinner. I think we’re going to have date night, just she and I," he said of how the couple is planning to celebrate the nominations. "I owe her that too because… I would characterize her as an invisible partner in this whole thing. She was so helpful with Deadpool and I bounced so many ideas off of her, and I worked with her with so many of the little nuances on the character."

She’s been a de facto coach for me in so many ways," the 40-year-old actor added. "I owe her a big one and I think tonight she’s gonna cash in."

During the interview, Reynolds also talked about going up against a fellow Canadian (and fellow Ryan) at the Globes, Ryan Gosling!

"I do love it when people mistake me for Ryan Gosling. I always whisper 'upgrade,'" the actor joked. "Ryan is one of the most gifted actors, certainly not just in Canada but all over the world. Just to be in the same category as him is pretty exceptional and amazing for me."
