Ryan Reynolds being Ryan Reynolds is almost always guaranteed to bring brightness to your day.

Whether he is trolling his wife online, being ridiculous in an interview, or making fun of himself, the actor has always been a good sport.

Reynolds, married to actor Blake Lively, recently made everyone laugh when he jokingly made fun of his friend Hugh Jackman for being nominated for an Emmy.

So it’s only fair we take a trip down Reynolds memory lane and take a look back at the times the actor has successfully trolled the entire internet.

The fake streaming site

This month he trolled his fans by launching a fake streaming service that features just one movie.

On August 12 he shares news of a new online movie hub he called Mint Mobile +. Fans believed the supposed platform would show 80 minutes of the star acting, but within minutes after he shared the fake advert fans realised they were not in on the joke.

His ‘feud’ with Hugh Jackman

The friends have been going back and forth now with some shady public remarks about each other. Of course, they are both only joking and proves us with some cheeky entertainment.

In case you missed it, Reynolds congratulated Jackman on the nomination in July but could not resist poking a little fun at his famous friend saying that he didn't deserve the recognition. It turned into Jackman hitting back with a joke suggesting that Reynolds was just green with envy.

The fake twin

Last year, Reynolds shared a video on Instagram having a conversation with his "twin brother," Gordon. He captioned the post, "Today is #NationalBestFriendsDay. Tomorrow is #WorldGinDay. My brother is an ass. Which is why you can’t have one without the other." For those who recall, Gordon first became known in 2016, when Reynolds filmed an interview with GQ as the made-up character.

But there is a plot twist as Lively entered the chat and commented on the post: "Sh*t. Your brother is hot. I've made a terrible mistake..."

Reynolds replied: "You haven't made a mistake. You've been living with him for over a year."

Generally being the best at Twitter

The time he epically trolled his daughter with this well-crafted joke. We can’t wait to see what happens when his kids learn how to read and dig up the internet archives

The iconic birthday posts

In August 2017, Reynolds posted a photo on Instagram cropping out Lively's face and wrote, "Happy Birthday to my amazing wife." and it has become one of Reynolds' most iconic gestures.

Don't worry, Lively got her revenge a few months later by sharing an Instagram of Ryan Gosling and cropping out Reynolds face. She captioned it, "Happy Birthday, baby." Ooops, it was the wrong Ryan.

Trolling Blake … again

He absolutely loves making fun of his wife. Later on in the year, November 2017, Reynolds had no shame whatsoever in posting a photo of Lively on the set of her upcoming film The Rhythm Section. She was in character and looking nothing like her usually glammed up self. He captioned the photo, writing: "#nofilter."

So there we have it: Ryan Reynolds is everyone's favourite troll.
