Blake Lively has spoken at length about her and Reynolds' first date and rom com-like love story before marriage. But on Good Morning America today, she went into why their marriage works because they are both actors. "In general, yeah, it's nice to have somebody who understands what you're doing. Especially because our job is so weird—we have to, you know, like be married to other people, and it's all so strange. It’s still strange. It's never normal, even when we’re both doing it."

"But it's helpful to know that like, oh, when you're acting like you're in a relationship with someone [else], that's not what's actually happening. Because I have friends who are married to people who aren’t in the business, and they're like, "Oh, so you're not actually making love in that scene?!" And I'm like, "No, no, no, no, definitely not, no. So yeah, those elements are helpful."

Lively also revealed that she doesn't keep up with Reynolds' snarky jokes about their daughters at all on Twitter. She doesn't really ever go on it (though, she did seem to revive her account this month and was tweeting earlier today).
