Stars in Hungary: Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively in Budapest for a Month
Another Hollywood star has arrived in Budapest. According to Blikk, Ryan Reynolds and his wife will be in Budapest for a month. Sharp-eyed fans may be able to bump into one of Hollywood's funniest heroes - star of the Deadpool movies - and his actress wife, Blake Lively.

Sharp-eyed fans may be able to bump into one of Hollywood's funniest heroes - star of the Deadpool movies -  and his actress wife, Blake Lively. We know that the couple have booked the presidential suite of a downtown hotel, where Lively will spend her time with their four children in complete luxury, while her husband is filming a Cold War action movie in the capital.

"The preparations have been massive for days because although famous people and celebrities have stayed in the hotel before, Ryan Reynolds is in a completely different category," said our source, who revealed that the family will be spending a month in Hungary.

"The suite has stunning views of the Danube and over the rooftops of Budapest. With its crystal chandeliers, handcrafted glass mosaics, unique furniture, marble-clad electric fireplaces and gilded bathrooms, no expense has been spared to create a space that provides an experience for guests as if they were in a royal palace," the source added.

However, if everything goes according to plan, we won't see much of them. "Their privacy is more important to them than anything else, so they have implemented very strict rules in the hotel for the month they will be staying here," explained the insider.

The couple are famous for guarding their family life from the public eye, so much so that even though their youngest child was born last February, we still don't know their name or gender.

"They don't want any pictures taken of the kids under any circumstances; they are very protective of their three older daughters as well. That's why they have stipulated in advance that all meals will be served in the suite, and when they leave it, it's strictly forbidden to approach them or ask for a photo with any of them," our informant revealed.

This won't be easy, as our paper understands that not only babysitters but also security personnel will accompany the family.

Since the children won't be shown, their staff can easily take them for activities, while their mother can comfortably enjoy the amenities of the luxury hotel. But with a baseball cap and sunglasses, Blake Lively can also blend in; there's a chance people won't recognize her," added the insider.

Ryan Reynolds is filming the movie "MayDay" in Budapest. Its other lead actor is Britain's Kenneth Branagh, with Jonathan Goldstein directing together with John Francis Daley, who Hungarians may know better as Dr. Lance Sweets from the series "Bones."

The film has been in production since March, with the crew previously working in Montreal and San Diego, and with the Hungary being the final stage of filming.
