Ryan Reynolds reveals the details of his first date with Blake Lively

The Green Lantern might have been a flop at the box office, but it was on the set of that movie that Ryan Reynolds met his now-wife, Blake Lively.

Sitting down with People and EW's editorial director, Jess Cagle, Ryan revealed how his relationship with Blake began and the unconventional way they realised they were meant for each other.

Describing Blake and himself as buddies first, he said, "I think that's the best way to have a relationship, is to start as friends."

“For about a year Green Lantern had come and gone, we were both single,” the actor recalled.

“We went on a double date; she was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date for the respective parties, because there was just fireworks coming across [the table]," he said.

Yep, that's right, they fell in love with each other while on dates with OTHER people!
