Ryan Reynolds, who co-owns Wrexham Association Football Club with Rob McElhenney, revealed that he has had to repeatedly ask one of their star players, Ollie Palmer, to put a shirt on when speaking to his gorgeous wife, Blake Lively.

During an appearance on the Fearless in Devotion podcast, the Deadpool star joked that the Wrexham player has a tendency to greet Lively shirtless. “Every time we’ve come as a family and stuff, we’ll walk down to the locker room, and Ollie’s the first guy that walks out of that dressing room completely shirtless to have a conversation with my wife,” Reynolds told the podcast hosts.


“I’m always like, ‘Ollie, put a f–king shirt on and come back out like a gentleman.'” Apart from the shirtless run-ins with his wife, both Reynolds and McElhenney have grown close to Palmer, who Reynolds later claimed to be “one of the best guys we know.”
