Ryan Reynolds and social media - name a better duo, I'll wait.
A man of many talents, you could argue that his comebacks are just as relevant as his real-life jobs.
One of his best retorts came back in 2018 when his most common sparring partner Blake Lively decided to take the first punch at her husband with a post on Instagram.
She went on to the platform to showcase her admiration for Anna Kendrick, her co-star in 2018 flick A Simple Favor.
The post was captioned: "[Anna Kendrick] is the hotter, female(r) version of my husband... so, would it reaaaally count as cheating??"
Let the games begin.
Kendrick then commented: "So glad we're finally taking this public. I let Ryan have Deadpool, he can give me this."
As ever, waiting in the wings with a quick comeback was Reynolds.
He jokingly admitted he was resigned to his fate, saying: "The most ambitious crossover event in history. I'll miss you both. Tell my story."
Must be great to be a movie star with nothing better to do than create hype around you and your mate's movies on social media and watch the money come a-rolling in. Can I have a go next?
Anyway, this is just the latest episode in a long series of social media interactions between Lively and Reynolds.
You have to wonder what they talk about in front of the telly of an evening.
On a more serious note, Reynolds revealed Lively has contributed 'A++ writing' to several of his films including Deadpool, but has never been credited.
In an interview with SiriusXM earlier this month, he said that Lively has 'helped so much' on 'all kinds of movies that have been big successes' and that she is 'really talented'.
He said: "I write on a lot of my movies. It's been a survival mechanism for me for a long time. Sometimes I'm credited, sometimes I'm not.
"There's a lot of A++ writing that I've done that was actually Blake."
He concluded: "I don't know. Maybe it's 'cause there's inherent sexism in the business - I will say that a lot of times, 'She wrote that - Blake like, wrote that not me. That was was her.'
"And it's like, they still, later on, repeat the story as I wrote it."
