Taylor Swift pal Ryan Reynolds trolls her over Matty Healy ‘romance’
Ryan Reynolds has trolled friend Taylor Swift’s reported budding romance with British rocker Matty Healy.
The Deadpool actor, 46, took to Instagram to playfully mock his friend by sharing a picture of himself with background music by Healy’s band The 1975.
He captioned the selfie with: “Zoom Zoom” as The 1975’s hit single Chocolate played in the background.
It comes as Swift and Healy were spotted enjoying time together at New York hotspot Casa Cipriani.
According to Page Six, the couple were seen chatting and kissing while surrounded by security at the venue on Thursday.
In a picture posted on Twitter, the duo can be seen together holding hands in the background.
Reynolds is married to Blake Lively, one of Swift’s best friends of a decade.
The married couple were recently seen out for dinner with Swift shortly after it was revealed she had split from ex Joe Alwyn.
The couple’s three daughters – James, eight, Inez, six, and Betty, three – also feature in her 2020 hit song Betty. Reynolds and Lively have since welcomed another child to their family.
Last week, The Sun reported that Swift, 33, and Healy, 34, were in a relationship just weeks after it was confirmed the pop star had split from British actor Alwyn, 32.
Healy, who is the son of Loose Women star Denise Welch, also made a surprise appearance at the Nashville performance of Swift’s Eras tour on Saturday night.
The English musician delighted fans when he appeared on stage in a skeleton onesie supporting indie singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers on her first night of opening for Swift.
Healy had been spotted in the audience of Swift’s show on the Friday night but his appearance on stage the following evening had come as a surprise.
Speculation that Healy – who first met and briefly dated Swift a decade ago – was seeing the multi-award winning pop star has been building for weeks.
A source close to Taylor said last week: “She and Matty are madly in love. It’s super early days, but it feels right. They first dated, very briefly, almost ten years ago but timings just didn’t work out.

“Taylor and Joe actually split up back in February, so there was absolutely no crossover.
“Both Matty and Taylor have been touring over the past few weeks, so it’s been a lot of FaceTiming and texting but she cannot wait to see him again.
“But as two international megastars, they understand the pressures of one another’s jobs better than anyone, and are incredibly supportive of their respective careers.
“They are both massively proud and excited about this relationship and, unlike Taylor’s last one – which was very much kept out of the spotlight, deliberately – she wants to ‘own’ this romance, and not hide it away.
“Taylor just wants to live her life, and be happy. She’s told pals Matty is flying to Nashville over the weekend to support her on the next leg of her tour.”
