The Deadpool star was especially touched by a black and white dance sequence through which McElhenney’s character, Mac, expresses his journey to accept his own sexuality.

“I have bad news and I have really bad news. The bad news is I slipped into someone’s DMs again. The really bad news is that I might’ve bought half of a fifth-tier national football team in Wales.” McElhenney asks what Lively’s reaction was to all of this.

“Not good Rob, no. We’re still working through that one,”Reynolds laughs at Reynolds. While he’s obviously jesting, it’s not hard to imagine Lively being quite shocked by news like this. That being said, Lively and Reynolds haven’t split up over it or anything like that. On Valentine’s Day, she posted a photo of Reynolds with the caption “Find me a better friend…I’ll wait.”
