Ryan Reynolds Lightly Trolls Sir Paul McCartney On Instagram

Hey guess what? Totally cool, handsome and talented movie star Ryan Reynolds is at is again. Would you add 'self-satisfied' to that list? Whoops, no time for that no - we've got a story to be getting on with.

Yes, the Canadian actor is - let's face it - the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World when it comes to Internet #bantz (move over, KSI).

As ever, nobody is out of bounds. Hell, if Ryan Reynolds met Queen Elizabeth II he could probably run around Buckingham Palace with his knob out and he wouldn't even get beaten up by the Queen's Guard.

But I try it ONE TIME... Ah, never mind.

Anyway, this time it's not the Queen of England, but it is still someone who is almost as popular and revered as she is. No, I'm not talking about Gemma Collins, I am - of course - referring to Sir Paul McCartney.

Yes, Ryan met up with the former Beatle and decided that meeting a living legend of the musical and cultural world was ripe for online lampoonery.

He posted a picture of the two on Instagram and captioned it: "Have you ever had a dream to meet someone so badly and somehow it comes true?

"You're welcome, Paul."



Without going into too much of a comparison of the cultural impact of the two, because who could possibly choose between the albums Revolver and Rubber Soul and the cinematic glory of Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place or Green Lantern? Ryan might be out of his depth there.

Either way, it's proved pretty popular with Ryan's admiring public. At last check, it had been liked nearly 130,000 times on Instagram, which - of course - is the metric by which all success is measured by these days.

In fairness, Ryan was probably just as happy to meet Paul McCartney as many people would be, he just decided to show his excitement in a boyish and charming fashion. I think.

Either way, Ryan looks happy, Sir Paul looks happy (although, that does seem to be a pretty permanent expression these days, if you follow me) so where is the harm?

As I said before, McCartney can count himself in some pretty esteemed company, because nobody is safe from the sheer hilarity of Reynolds.

Over the years, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Hugh Jackman, David Beckham and - obviously - his own wife and children have been on the end of some gentle internet jibing.

Nowadays, that's when you know you've really made it.
