Hollywood star Salma Hayek got the attention of her 16.4 million Instagram followers on Friday when she posted a fun throwback picture with Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. The upload was made in honor of Ryan’s 44th birthday.
In the photo, Salma wore a black tank top with a scooped neckline that showed off her toned arms and décolletage. She paired the top with matching black pants and a number of statement necklaces, including what appeared to be rosary beads. Her hair was styled into voluminous waves that cascaded down past her shoulders. She posed by leaning against a chair and stuck out her tongue to add a fun and cheeky aspect to the photo.
Ryan looked suave in a black and gray checkered jacket, white shirt, and burgundy tie. He angled his body sideways in the frame and gave the camera a smirk as Salma goofed off beside him.
In the caption, Salma wished Ryan a happy birthday, jokingly calling him an “old man” in her otherwise sweet missive.

Fans loved the hilarious update and awarded the post over 128,000 likes and around 410 comments within hours of it being posted.
“Aww always looking beautiful God bless. Blessings to [Ryan Reynolds] on your birthdays and may God bless you with many more wonderful birthdays to come,” wrote one fan, emphasizing the sentiment with a white cake emoji and four red balloon symbols.
“Love you Salma… really amazing woman,” gushed a second.
“Perfection,” proclaimed a third.
“Two beautiful people,” raved a fourth, concluding the comment with a red heart.
The two actors previously worked together on The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which was released back in 2017. The movie was successful enough to earn a sequel, titled The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. The film is expected to be released sometime in late 2021 and has been in post-production since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
It appears that the duo has remained close after working with one another. Salma posted another silly photo — in which she sported a blond wig and held a bottle of Aviation Gin — for the Canadian actor’s birthday last year.
The Proposal star grabbed headlines just yesterday after posting a picture that showed him after voting in the U.S. 2020 presidential elections for the first time.
Hayek recently wowed her fans after posting a glamorous close-up shot in which she showed just the hint of an orange dress, as was previously covered by The Inquisitr.
