Ryan Reynolds just trolled Blake Lively over cheating on him with 20 ghosts

For some reason, us ordinary folk derive great enjoyment from peeking into the lives of the rich and famous. Whether we're scrolling through their perfectly curated Instagram feeds or picking up tabloids, our voyeuristic tendencies are only exemplified when we have a perfect celebrity coupling to get invested in.

And who wouldn't be when there's Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively around? Apparently it's not enough that they've both won the genetic lottery, and have illustrious careers in one of the most difficult industries to break into. No, they seemingly have a picture-perfect relationship to boot.

The pair are never not trolling each other on social media, and this time Ryan really took it to the next level. I mean, if you came across an article about a woman claiming to have slept with a bunch of ghosts, you'd tag your friend, right?

And if you're Mr. Reynolds himself, you'd tag your superstar wife, and imply she's that woman.

Yesterday, the actor responded on Twitter to a tweet by the New York Post, which linked to their story about a British woman who claims she had sex with 20 ghosts and is now engaged to a spirit.

The woman bears somewhat of a resemblance to Blake.

"THIS is how I find out?" Ryan joked.

While Blake had no immediate response, knowing the couple, it's only a matter of time until the actress retorts with something equally hilarious.

The story, which has been making the rounds for the last week, is certainly bizarre. Spiritual guidance counsellor Amethyst Realm, who claimed to have met and fallen in love with a ghost on holiday earlier this year, shared the story of how her unconventional lover popped the question to The Sun.

"I'd suggested a weekend away and we decided on Weston-super-Mare," she told the publication. "As soon as we got to the hotel, my lover told me he wanted to go to Wookey Hole. It’s nearly an hour from Weston, but he was insistent. Halfway through the tour, he told me he wanted to hang back from the group."

"That’s when it happened. There was no going down on one knee — he doesn’t have knees! But for the first time, I heard him speak."

Amethyst then went onto claim that she heard the ghost say "will you marry me":

"It’s hard to explain but, until that point, his words were inside my head. But, on that day, the words were outside. I could actually hear his voice and it was beautiful. Deep, sexy and real."

Amethyst does acknowledge that guests may find the wedding bizarre as her partner does not have a name, and she's not even 100 per cent certain that he's a man.

However, she does remain optimistic about their chances of conceiving a child. "I looked into it and I don’t think it’s totally out of the question. I’m sure there’s a way around that — I just haven’t worked it out yet," Amethyst explained.

Don't worry Ryan, we totally know where you were coming from with this one...
