Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds recently opened up, in an interview, about his obsession with the movie. The 40-year-old actor was asked about his favourite Ryan Reynolds movies to which he replied, “Buried, Adventureland. The Voices, Mississippi Grind.” “I love Deadpool with my last beating heart. I like Van Wilder. If you watch that, I’m just wholesale robbing from Chevy Chase,” he told GQ magazine. Deadpool is a fictional anti-hero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
The movie follows the life of Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds), a former ‘Special Forces’ operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax performs a rogue experiment leaving him with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humour. “I was banging the loudest drum for Deadpool. I wasn’t just trying to open it; I was trying to make a cultural phenomenon,” he said.
Reynolds also revealed his first moment with his wife Blake Lively, with who he shares two children.
“No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that’s open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, “Want to dance?” No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, “Oh, I think I just crossed a line.” And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don’t really need to go into what happened after that,” he shared.
