Ryan recently revealed to PEOPLE magazine the importance of keeping their family together.

He said: ‘Blake and I don’t do movies at the same time. If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us.’
