How bad was this faux pas?


Isn't THAT ironic? Ryan Sings Ex-Fiancée Alanis Morissette's Song

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you. Ryan Reynolds might have learned that the hard way on The Today Show.

Blake Lively's husband was on the show promoting his new movie Deadpool, an R-rated superhero movie. Matt Lauer asked him which super power he wishes he had, and Ryan responded by saying he'd like to be able to, "on demand, re-enact any '80s music video in slow motion." He broke into song until Matt asked him to switch to the '90s.

This is where things go terribly awry for poor Ryan. Of all 90s songs to pick, Ryan belted out Alanis Morisette's famous "Ironic" tune. It was ironic indeed, since Ryan and Alanis dated and were even engaged for three years from 2004-2007.

Foot in mouth moment! Ryan clearly didn't think that one through. But what can we say, Ryan? Other than "Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you."

Both of the stars are married to other people now - Ryan to Blake Lively and Alanis to Mario Treadway.
