Ryan Reynolds Talks The Proposal and Deadpool
06.18.09 by Ryan
Ryan Reynolds is brimming with excitement over Deadpool, the upcoming movie spin-off for the character he played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But while the story for Deadpool is worked out, Reynolds has kept busy with the romantic comedy The Proposal.
Reynolds told Parade that the Proposal shoot had its fair share of difficult moments:
You don't normally combine nudity with stunts. But we had a little 'Cirque du Soleil porn'
moment where we had to fall on top of each other totally naked. Some essential body part always
popped out because you'd see the cameraman going, 'Oh no, we just saw your...' But by hour four,
I'd abandoned the fake leaf or whatever the hell they gave me to cover my privates. I was just
throwing caution—and other things—to the wind.
Nudity makes taking a souvenir from the Proposal set more of a challenge than it was for Reynolds on other movies:
I actually took Deadpool's Katana swords with me when I left after filming Wolverine. I checked them in my luggage. And while I was sitting on the plane, I kept
waiting for an air marshal to come on board and ask me what the hell I was thinking with two
registered Katana swords in a suitcase. But it never happened.
Besides seriously betraying security protocols, Reynolds says that playing Deadpool has other advantages:
I’m into any role in which I get
to kick Captain America in the nuts.
