If there's one celeb who always brings charm with some humor, it's got to be Ryan Reynolds. Betty White, who died on Friday aged 99, had recently claimed that Ryan Reynolds once had a crush on her. Being his true self, Reynolds joked around on his social media when he reshared a birthday post for Betty White. In his story, he said, "I'm absolutely sick of the media exploiting past relationships just to drive clicks."

The legendary actress maintained her opinion and added that Reynolds had a 'thing' for her. Firing this a little more, Reynolds shared a PEOPLE post on his story.

Ryan Reynolds says his anxiety sent him to 'depths of the darker end of the spectrum'

The post by PEOPLE was captioned: "Betty White wonders if Ryan Reynolds will *ever* overcome his crush on her. 😂 In this week's issue of PEOPLE celebrating the Golden Girls actress' 100th birthday, White jokes about her The Proposal costar's playful pining for her. "I've heard Ryan can't get over his thing for me," she says, "but Robert Redford is The One." 💕"


To this, Ryan Reynolds shared how he has been a fan of White 'for as long as he can remember'. He added, "I heard that scripts for 'Golden Girls' were only 35 pages, which makes sense because so many of the laughs come from Betty simply looking at her castmates." Spilling more secrets, Reynolds joked about how White is a typical Capricon and she sleeps all day but is out all night partying, boozing and snacking on men.

In 2019, Ryan Reynolds wished Betty White by sharing an image of the two where he referred to Betty as his 'ex-girlfriend'. He said, "I don't usually post about ex-girlfriends. But Betty's special. Happy Birthday to the one and only, @bettymwhite." The image was then reshared by PEOPLE. White has been pretty transparent about her crush on Robert Redford. It became so intense that White received a life-size cut-out of Robert for her 99th birthday. Betty White's assistant said, "For a long time, we had him in the office entryway. When she came in, she'd say, "Hi, sweetheart."
