Ryan Reynolds and Betty White have a deep relationship, and it’s obvious. Ryan clearly has a lot of admiration for Betty, and the two teased a lot more. Reynolds recently reacted to Betty’s claim that they are infatuated with each other, stating that he is unable to move on from her.
Fans may recall that the actor has raved about his Proposal co-star several times since she played his on-screen grandma in the 2009 picture. In fact, on White’s 97th birthday in January 2019, Reynolds turned to social media to express his admiration.
“I don’t usually post about ex-girlfriends. But Betty’s special, Happy Birthday to the one and only, @bettymwhite.”
White joked about Reynolds’ obsession in a recent interview with People before her 100th birthday. After the article was published, Reynolds couldn’t help but respond in his signature humor, tweeting early Dec. 30. Ryan also took part in the publication’s homage to White, telling People that he’s been a fan of the singer for a long time.
“I’ve heard Ryan can’t get over his thing for me,” she told the outlet, “but Robert Redford is The One.”
“I’m absolutely sick of the media exploiting past relationships just to drive clicks.”
“I heard that scripts for Golden Girls were only 35 pages, which makes sense because so many of the laughs come from Betty simply looking at her castmates.”
Just two years ago, on White’s 98th birthday, Reynolds and fellow Proposal star Sandra Bullock paid tribute to the actress by singing “Happy Birthday” to her in a video uploaded on Twitter. They clearly adore Betty, as seen by Ryan’s emotions at the end of the video.
