Ryan Reynolds is one loving, doting, asshole of a family man. When he's not making brilliantly vicious jokes about his eldest child, James, Reynolds often gets a kick out of publicly shredding his wife, Blake Lively. Whether it's making joking references to their sex life or trolling her latest film project, Reynolds clearly loves having a little fun at his lady love's expense (and it's not like she doesn't dish it right back). 

Here are 17 times Reynolds made Lively the glorious butt of his jokes. 

1

When he praised her usefulness as a human shield.

"I used to say to (Blake), ‘I would take a bullet for you, I could never love anything as much as I love you,’" Reynolds told David Letterman. "And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby. You can quote me."
