Ryan Reynolds: My Best Friend Tried To Sell Photos Of Baby Daughter
Ryan Reynolds reveals in a new interview that he was betrayed by one of his best friends who attempted to sell private photos of the actor and wife Blake Lively’s baby daughter James.
Reynolds, who graces the cover of the October issue of GQ, tells the magazine, “A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around. I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks.”
Reynolds describes the betrayal “like a death,” adding, “It was like one of those devastating things to find out.” The actor confronted his friend about the situation with a “strongly worded conversation,” but admits, “There isn’t really a conversation to have. It’s just, ‘Oh, well, now I’m never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.’ That’s kind of how it worked out.”
As far as the friend’s intentions, Reynolds says he did it “just for money… I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught. But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!’”
