Blake Lively is a ray of sunshine in a floral print dress as she strolls arm-in-arm with husband of 11 years Ryan Reynolds in NYC
The Hollywood hot couple, who have been married since 2012, walked arm in arm as they dashed around the city that never sleeps.
Blake, 36, was a ray of sunshine in a floral dress that featured a multicolored pattern spattered over a white background.
With a plunging neckline that betrayed a trace of cleavage, the dress was cinched in around the middle to emphasize her petite frame.
Letting her caramel blonde locks tumble free in the breeze, the Café Society actress sharpened her feature with naturalistic makeup.
Meanwhile the Deadpool heartthrob wore a green checked shirt with its sleeves rolled up to showcase his toned forearms.
Leaving his top few buttons beguilingly undone over his white undershirt, Ryan brought the outfit together with blue jeans and salmon sneakers.
He warded off the August sunshine with a pair of sunglasses, lending himself a touch of extra shade by accessorizing with a baseball cap.
Before the Hollywood strikes forced production to shut down, Blake was repeatedly spotted this summer filming her upcoming picture It Ends With Us.
Based on a romance novel by Colleen Hoover, It Ends With Us stars Blake as a woman named Lily who finds herself in an abusive marriage.
In the book, Lily grows up watching her father strike her mother, and though she hopes not to repeat the pattern, she winds up married to a man who hits her too.
Lily’s abusive husband Ryle is played by Justin Baldoni, who is also directing the movie and who shares a writing credit on the screenplay with Christy Hall.
Meanwhile the steamy Brandon Sklenar, who once played Burt Reynolds on a miniseries, plays Lily’s first love Atlas who resurfaces in her life.
The cast includes comedian Hasan Minhaj, who has been tapped to play the role of Ryle’s best friend and has been seen filming with Justin.
When Blake’s casting was announced, Colleen, who described the book as being ‘loosely inspired by my mother,’ gushed over her leading lady on Instagram.
‘Blake Lively, y’all! She’s my dream Lily,’ Colleen effervesced in the tearful video, which was filmed in front of the house where she was raised.
‘And then when I first met Justin Baldoni, who is directing the film for It Ends With Us, I immediately wanted him to be Ryle.
‘I just thought that he had what it takes.’
She rhapsodized that ‘the good news is, he’s going to be Ryle,’ assuring the fans: ‘I think Justin and Blake have what it takes to bring these characters to life and I cannot wait for you guys to see that happen!’
A number of fans in the comments took objection to Blake’s casting and pointed out the age gap between her and Lily, who is 23 in the book.
As far as her personal life is concerned, Blake has been married to Ryan for over a decade and the duo are the proud parents of four children.
In addition to their three daughters James, eight, Inez, six, and Betty, three, they also have an infant whose name and sex they have yet to divulge to the public.
