Ryan Reynolds Says Blake Lively Made Him A "More Empathetic" Person


Blake Lively Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds earned some serious husband points this week when he praised his wife Blake Lively at this year’s Met Gala, saying that she made him a “more empathetic person”.

The glamorous couple attended the annual Met Gala on Monday evening (May 1st) in New York City, and were photographed by Humans of New York’s Brandon Stanton, as part of the popular photoblog that was established in 2010.

“She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy,” Reynolds said about his wife of five years and mother of his two children. “She'll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she's made me a more empathetic person.”

The Hitmans Bodyguard Trailer


An AAA-rated executive protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is charged with protecting the most wanted hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) in the world. That might seem like a crazy concept - I mean, why would an assassin need a bodyguard? - but as it turns out, he's quite the liability. He's impulsive, volatile and damn rude, and very likely to get them both killed. Unfortunately, there's nothing this protection agent can do about his new client; he has to work with him and they must put aside their differences if they want to defeat a ruthless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman) and testify at the International Court of Justice. It's a 24 hour rollercoaster ride for these completely contrasting personalities, complete with death defying car chases and reckless escape stunts.

Jake Gyllenhaal And Ryan Reynolds Have Formed A Bromance


Jake Gyllenhaal Ryan Reynolds

The film reunites Reynolds with Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. And Gyllenhaal says that the script left him "legitimately terrified". But both actors say they were drawn to the project because it was just a big, fun movie. "It felt like blasphemy that we were having such a good time," Gyllenhaal laughs. "It literally felt wrong that you could have so much fun making a movie that is as terrifying as it is."

On the press tour, they have been putting on a riotously entertaining display of their new bromance. "I love this person as an artist," Reynolds says of Gyllenhaal. "Like, I truly am genuinely a biggest fan. So it's like one of those milestones. You go, 'Oh, I get to work with someone I admire. Someone who does things that I wish I could do.'"

Ryan Reynolds And Zazie Beetz Must Have "Spectacular Chemistry" In 'Deadpool 2'


Ryan Reynolds

It's hard to think about the world of comic book movies without 'Deadpool' immediately springing to mind. The film was one of 2016's biggest successes, despite being slapped with an R-rating in the US, and went on to break all sorts of records while catapulting Ryan Reynolds into the world of much-adored superheroes.

Life Review

Very Good

Like a mash-up of Alien and Gravity, this ripping sci-fi horror movie is very effective at generating tension and terror. And it helps that an adept cast is on board to give some weight to characters who are rather thinly written. The script, by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, keeps everything lean and mean, concentrating on the scary stuff while ignoring any thematic depth or topicality. But director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) keeps it moving briskly.

It's set on board the International Space Station, where a specialised six-person crew is examining new soil samples from Mars. Science officer Hugh (Ariyon Bakare) finds alien life in the dirt, and watches in amazement as the cells grow and cooperate to create an interactive jellyfish-like creature, which schoolchildren on Earth name Calvin. Infectious disease doctors David and Miranda (Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson) are concerned that this life-form remains contained in the lab. So Captain Kat (Olga Dihovichnaya) and technicians Roy and Sho (Ryan Reynolds and Hiroyuki Sanada) set out to lock things down. But of course, this proves trickier than they thought it would be.

What follows is, unsurprisingly, a stalker slasher movie in which the crew members go down one by one. Calvin is a quick learner, and grows into a seriously menacing creature, complete with the silly addition of a kind of evil digital face. It also gets a few corny point of view camera angles. But mainly Espinosa holds his nerve, maintaining a believable sense of the science and the setting as things get increasingly out of control. Each terrifying set piece is followed by a brief moment of silence in which the characters (and audience) catch their breath. This also allows them to add one back story detail per person, in an attempt to stir up some emotional connection. But it doesn't really matter once the violent mayhem kicks into gear again.

Ryan Reynolds Says Blake Lively Kept Him "Sane" Through Anxiety Attacks


Ryan Reynolds Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds has credited his wife Blake Lively for keeping him “sane” during the most stressful and difficult periods of his career, particularly as he prepared for Deadpool, the actor has said in a new interview.

The 40 year old actor has been nominated for the Golden Globes for his role as the masked anti-hero, in what is his first major awards nomination in the Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) category. He has recently won the Critics’ Choice Award for the same role, a good indicator that he’ll be scooping more prizes in the near future.

However, the Wade Wilson / Deadpool role caused Reynolds a great deal of anxiety long before this, aggravating a condition he’s battled for his whole life.

Ryan Reynolds Has NOT Filmed A Scene As Deadpool For 'Logan' Movie


Ryan Reynolds Hugh Jackman

Sorry, Deadpool fans – it looks as if recent reports that Ryan Reynolds’ masked anti-hero will not be making an appearance in the forthcoming movie Logan after all, with the actor himself taking to Twitter to squash the rumours.

On Wednesday (December 28th), a report by movie website The Wrap suggested that Reynolds had donned his mask to shoot a scene for the new film, which is due out in March 2017.

However, the Canadian actor responded to a fan who asked him directly on Twitter whether the rumours were true. “Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission,” he wrote, referring to the movie’s star Hugh Jackman’s prisoner number when he played Jean Valjean in the movie version of Les Miserables.

Ryan Reynolds Apologises For Revealing He Has A Second Daughter With Cookies


Ryan Reynolds Blake Lively

It's safe to say that Blake Lively cannot trust hubby Ryan Reynolds to keep a secret. The actor confirmed that his 4-week-old second child was a girl during his appearance on 'Conan' this week, and thus suffered the wrath of his secretive wife. Top marks for his apology though.

Two weeks ago, the 'Deadpool' star posted a very much not unusual joke about his parenthood issues on Twitter, but this time he revealed way too much information than he was allowed to. To make matters worse, he then categorically confirmed that he had two daughters to Conan O'Brien on Wednesday (November 2nd 2016), quipping about the oestrogen levels in his house.
