Even a beauty like Blake Lively can’t hold a candle to Helen Mirren.
The 27-year-old actress of The Town showed her sense of humor as she shared a photo of her husband Ryan Reynolds on Instagram. The photo, which was taken during a red carpet event in Berlin, shows Reynolds looking lovingly on co-star Helen Mirren.
“Should I be concerned that my husband’s never looked at me this way?” the new mother jokingly captioned, adding for emphasis the hashtag #WhereAreThoseEyesWanderingReynolds.

It’s easy to see why Lively would feel a little jealous. After all, Mirren did cut an impressive figure in a green lace dress that was clingy enough to show her amazing curves. The dress’ wide scooped neckline was also beautifully set off with a gorgeous diamond necklace and dangling earrings.
But Lively’s comments were all in good fun as even she acknowledged that Mirren is sexy, commenting that #HelenMirrenIStheSexiestWomanAlive and #WomanInGold.
Mirren and Reynolds just wrapped up work on the movie Woman in Gold and it seems that it was such a positive experience for both.
“She’s the greatest show on Earth,” Reynolds gushed about Mirren. “She’s as humble as you’d hope someone in her position could possibly be, and she’s one of those magnetic personalities.”
The feeling seems to be mutual as well, as Mirren confessed to People magazine that she was taken by her co-star’s charming manner.
“Ryan just makes you feel so great. He's just so generous in his masculinity. He happens to be hunky and gorgeous and everything as well, but when you get a beautiful combination of the two? He is wonderful,” she explained.
Woman in Gold tells the real-life story of a Jewish refugee’s pursuit to reclaim Gustav Klimt’s painting The Lady in Gold, which was stolen from her family by the Nazis.
Mirren plays socialite Maria Altmann, who fled from her home in Vienna during World War II and consequently spent 60 years battling for its return. The painting is a portrait of Altmann’s aunt Adele Bloch-Bauer and is considered the Mona Lisa of Austria.
Reynolds portrays Randol Schoenberg, a young lawyer enlisted by Altman to help her.
The movie is directed by Simon Curtis and is expected to hit theaters on April 23, 2015.
