Ryan Reynolds shares awkward moment he had to shield wife Blake Lively from a 'half-naked' Wrexham star
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds has revealed that he had to shield his wife Blake Lively from a 'half naked' member of the Wrexham FC squad who came up to them topless.
It's fair to say that things have gone pretty well for Wrexham since Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought the club a couple of seasons ago.
They won their league this season and thus secured entry back into the football league (everything from the Championship to League Two) for the first time since 2008.
It's been a very happy camp for the Wrexham squad as their owners gifted the team with an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, with McElhenney and his wife Kaitlin Olson on chaperoning duty.
Reynolds also FaceTimed Wrexham striker Ollie Palmer to make sure that nobody in the squad had died on their four days of revelry in the city of sin.
It seems like the owners and the players have a pretty close bond, though Reynolds revealed that, at times, things can get a bit too casual between them, as he said he had to shield his wife from one player who spoke to them while half-naked.
Reynolds revealed the identity of the Wrexham player who kept speaking to him and his wife while shirtless as that of striker Palmer, who, according to the club's owners, is the player who loves being on camera the most.
Speaking to the Fearless in Devotion podcast, Reynolds was quick to say that Palmer was the one in the dressing room who most loved the camera, with co-owner McElhenney joking that it's 'not even close'.
Reynolds said: "Every time we've come as a family we've come over we have a walk down to the dressing room.
"Ollie is always the first one to walk out, completely shirtless, to have a conversation with my wife. I'm like, 'Ollie, put a f**king shirt on and come back out to speak to her like a gentleman'."
"Ollie is one of the best guys I know though - really funny, and I'm thrilled for him and his clothing brand. It's nice to see that take off."
The Wrexham squad have really enjoyed their trip to Vegas but now their attention will have to turn back towards football.
They've gone up a division so everything will be more difficult this time, though things might be helped a bit by a windfall payment they'll get from the Welsh government to renovate their stadium and add about 6,000 extra seats to the Racecourse Ground.
