Blake Lively Says Watching Ryan Reynolds' Sex Scenes Is a "Cruel and Unusual Form of Torture"

We'll never look at mashed potatoes the same way again.

Marie Claire cover star Blake Lively is busy doing press for The Shallows (read: the film that's rendered it impossible for us to go to the beach this summer), but she had Deadpool on her mind during a Tonight Show appearance. More specifically, Ryan Reynolds' sex montage. It's been haunting her, guys—much like the way The Shallows trailer has been haunting us.

"It's kinda torture these days, because I'm on a plane and everywhere I look, every screen is my husband in a sex montage throughout the holidays with another woman," Blake told Jimmy Fallon. "Because everybody wants to watch Deadpool on the plane. Everyone. But for fourteen hours, having your husband having mashed potatoes eaten out of his butt hole...because that's in the film. It's lovely. It's a cruel and unusual form of torture. And then my daughter goes 'dada!'"

Hey, at least Blake has a sense of humor about this whole thing. And obviously, it goes without saying that we'll be nixing the mashed potatoes come Thanksgiving.
