Does This One Tiny Detail In The Ryan Reynolds Hiddleswift Pic Mean That It’s Definitely Staged?

We spotted it. Did you?

So it looks like Taylor and Tom have made it Instagram official. Last night, Tay’s pal Brit Maack posted a shot of the couple, posing on a porch with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Brit and her own husband.

But there’s just something a little too ‘put-together’ about the pic that has us thinking it could be staged.

Take a closer look at each couple’s footwear: Brit Maack and her hubby are flashing some foot flesh, Ryan and Blake are sporting near identical white runners, while Taylor and Tom are wearing similar pairs of espadrilles.

That’s three couples all wearing matching footwear. Is it just a massive coincidence or the result of some pretty intense photo styling?

Sure, we’ll admit that it’s only one teeny tiny detail, but there are other things that seem a bit off about the picture too. For one, who took the pic in the first place? Was there a designated photog third wheeling on the couples’ date night?

And what about Ryan’s bemused expression that Twitter has so hilariously been reacting to this morning? Could all the staging of the image explain why he’s looking, er, a little less than amused? It’s possible.

As for an expert opinion, a paparazzo recently revealed the tactics Taylor uses to stage her pics, that could suggest this Insta snap isn’t all that it seems.

“Taylor Swift is a celebrity that won’t walk outside without perfect makeup and great fashion, and she smiles at every paparazzi to make sure they all get beautiful pictures,” he told Cosmopolitan.

“Taylor loves to have control. She takes an entirely different approach to paparazzi than most celebrities do. It’s all about business for her. Every time she steps outside is a new opportunity for her to look good in the magazines.”

His verdict on all the Tay and Tom pics splashed across the web recently? “My first instinct when seeing the pictures of Taylor and Tom is that they are definitely staged,” he concludes.

Interesting, huh?

Here’s what we think: If a celebrity paparazzo reckons all of Hiddleswift’s other pics are staged, we reckon there’s a fair chance this one could be too.
