We’re still giddy about the fairy tale romance-turned-surprise-wedding between Gossip Girl star Blake Lively (Serena) and her knight in green leotards, Ryan Reynolds. It turns out that even the experts agree that this is a match made in celebrity heaven. Love and relationship expert Patti Stanger (a.k.a. Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker”) blogged to People all about it.
He’s No Commitment-Phobe!
Even though Ryan has been married before (to Scarlett Johanssen no less), Patti thinks this bodes well for this marriage:
Look as his track record, and you'll see that Ryan is not afraid of commitment. He sees a woman he wants and he goes for it. In an age in which commitment phobia is as rampant as mono in a freshman dorm, men who can commit are worth their weight in gold.
Age Ain’t Nothin’ But a Number
Blake’s racked up a serious resume at the age of 25, but how does that stack up against Ryan’s 35 years of experience? Patti says a bit of an age difference ain’t no thang — she explains,
While the decade between these two may feel like more than just "a bit," remember that Blake is no typical, fresh-out-of-college 20-something. She got her first break when she was 18, in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and has been working non-stop since. The two of them actually have comparable careers, despite his extra time in the business. For Blake to find her power equal, she had to surpass the average 25-year-old prospects.
The Stars Aligned!
You can’t properly match-make unless you consult the stars — astrology, that is. And when it comes to reading the zodiac, Patti knows her stuff! She breaks it down,
Her stellium [five planets] in Virgo planets conjoins Ryan's Virgo rising, which means that he identifies with her and even wants to be her in a way. This may sound weird, but it's not. It simply means that Blake is more than Ryan's perfect idea of a mate; she actually is his role model. We don't always marry our role models, but in this case Ryan has.
Sigh — fine, Patti. If we can’t have him, we guess we’ll let Blake take the reigns on this one. They really do seem to be perfectly compatible in every way, and all we really want is to apply sunblock to his abs.
Blake, can we get him on loan, maybe?
