Ever wonder what it's like to be married to an actor and watch the more, shall-we-say intimate parts of his or her movies? Blake Lively spoke candidly on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon about what it's like to see her husband, Ryan Reynolds, in R-rated scenes.


Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's First Date Was Basically Straight Out of a Rom-Com

It all went down on Father's Day, when Lively and the couple's baby, James, were on a plane, sadly without Reynolds. "We're really good about keeping our family together," Lively said. "It's the first day that we've missed together."


But James got a glimpse of Dad after all, when Reynolds's new film, Deadpool began playing. Of course, the movie contains some sex scenes that made Lively a little uncomfortable—at least on a planeful of people. "It's kind of torture these days, because I'm on a plane and everywhere I look is my husband in a sex montage throughout the holidays with another woman, because everyone wants to watch Deadpool on the plane—everyone," The Shallows actress said.


"For fourteen hours, having your husband having mashed potatoes eaten out of his butthole, because that's in the film, is very lovely," Lively joked. "It's a cruel and unusual form of torture."


Unaware of the actual context of those scenes, baby James was apparently just happy to see her dad. "My daughter goes, 'Dada!' and she starts hugging and kissing the screen and waving at him and he's not waving back and she doesn't understand why he's not waving because she thinks it's like FaceTime. And Daddy's getting it in the mashed potatoes."

The couple tied the knot in an intimate Charleston wedding in September (we had the exclusive inside look!), welcomed James in December 2014, and are now expecting baby number two. Lively recently opened up about the reason she married Reynolds, but otherwise the couple has kept quiet about their family life, save for a few funny anecdotes. "All my eggs are in one basket, and that's my family," Lively told Marie Claire. "That's where my heart is. That's where my everything is."
