Ryan Reynolds walks around like he’s posing for a magazine


Okay, I’m one of those rare women who is left cold by Ryan Reynolds. Always and forever. I wasn’t even hot for him after that infamous shirtless Entertainment Weekly cover. I’m not sure what it is, but the guy seems like he could be a major pill in real life, and he always strikes me as smug and full of himself. Of course, there some evidence to indicate that is exactly what he really is like.

Anyway, I came across these photos and I might be changing my mind about Ryan. Because he looks like a friggin’ magazine photo shoot just walking down the street. Something about that beautiful coat that fits him really well and that I’d like to borrow, those perfect jeans, the way that he’s strutting. Okay, I finally see it, ladies. Ryan is hot. He needs to stand up straight though. That’s quite a hipster slouch. Douche. No! I like him now. Sigh… it will last a day.

In other Ryan news, his independent film Buried has been named one of the “five most likely films to face a bidding war at Sundance.” Apparently, Buried is about a civilian contractor in Iraq who gets buried alive. And that’s the movie. Ryan, buried alive for 90 minutes. High concept indeed.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: A civilian contractor (Ryan Reynolds) in Iraq is kidnapped and buried alive, with only a cell phone, a lighter and about 90 minutes to save himself before suffocating.

UPSIDE: Reynolds is coming off a terrific year in high-visibility hits (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Proposal), and come on: Who wouldn’t want a crack at distributing the Ryan Reynolds-trapped-in-a-coffin movie?

DOWNSIDE: In the end, it is just the Ryan Reynolds-trapped-in-a-coffin movie. Despite a cast that also lists Samantha Mathis and Stephen Tobolowski, I’m told that Reynolds is indeed the only one onscreen in the film. Too much Ryan?

POTENTIAL BIDDING WARRIORS: Lionsgate, Magnet, Screen Gems

HOW MUCH? A little north of $1 million, maybe more if Screen Gems — Sony’s genre label, and not generally a huge fest buyer — gets involved.

Buried sounds interesting, I guess. It was probably an acting challenge for Ryan, and it’s an unusual concept for a film. But if I’m only going to stare at one actor for 90 minutes as I watch him sexily save himself, I want it be Clive “Sexy Motherf-cker” Owen. Can I get a witness?

    He’s hot. I like that he isn’t stupid, even though many think it comes off as smug or arrogant. He used to (still does?) write for the Huffington Post, and it turns out he’s quite bright. A rarity in Hollywood.

  2. Relli says:

    LOVE HIM! and have since two guys, a girl and a pizza place.

    Although i have read a several of those celebrity encounters on various websites where they state that he is in fact a giant douche. That’s ok, i don’t really want to meet him just fantasize about him.

  3. Dorothy says:

    Kaiser that is a great article! So very funny.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I find him really dull. Not sure why, but I really do. He’s good looking, sure, and an OK actor, but there’s no…spark. No unique quality that would make me want to seek out his work.
    I just saw the Proposal – a predictable rom-com for sure, but I actually enjoyed it, mainly due to Sandra B. Ryan’s role could have been filled by anyone and I feel the movie would have been exactly the same.

  5. RobN says:

    How come actors all have these perfectly broken in cool old shoes? Do they pay some assistant to wear them for years before the “star” takes them back?

  6. Lantana says:

    He is definitely hot. Maybe he just can’t help not looking like a centerfold layout all the time. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

  7. LolaBella says:

    I have to admit that Ryan really does look hot in those pics; effortlessly sexy.

    Now, would I watch a movie about him buried alive for 90 mins? NO.

    Would I watch a movie about Clive “Sexy Motherf-cker” Owen buried alive for 90 mins? Uh, HELL TO THE YES! I would watch Clive do practically ANYTHING! *Swoon*

    @Kaiser: Thank you for saying Clive and not ‘you know who’. 😉

    He looks like he has his Zoolander face on.

  10. ela says:

    I met Ryan in Austin two years ago and he was cute, funny and cool.

    He is an intelligent man.

    Buried looks promising but very claustrophobic.

  11. Cinderella says:

    Hot looking, yes. Now if he could only be nice.

  12. pickelhaube says:

    Uh oh, he writes for the HuffPo? Ughhh…good thing I already didn’t like him because that news would have immediately killed it for me. But I think his eyes are too close together and he looks like a rat, so that’s always been a little off-putting to me. Well, that and the fact that he looks like a giant douchebag! And he’s obviously not too bright considering….LOL I am not going to start a fight though, so I’ll leave the rest of this sentence to your imagination 🙂

  13. Dan says:

    I met him on the sreet in NYC with my 75 year old mother and she kinda stopped him and was all over him because she loves some romcom he was in and I have to say the guy was so nice, I told him I was sorry and he waved it off like as to say no problem. Class act this guy.

  14. Ron says:

    I have met him once breifly and he was pleasant enough. A friend was working on a movie with him last fall and he seemed nice enough and my friend didn’t have anything rotten to say about him. Prior to that, I was walking to my Doctors office and saw him out running with his shirt off. That dude is Pitty Pat being me my smelling salts hot in person!

  15. Ally says:

    Puh-leeze. This guy is just a higher-status version of that git who married Tori Spelling.

  16. Wee Freckles (Lee) says:

    I thought he was just a bit of a pretty boy till I saw him a few months ago in that very silly, but very funny “Just Friends”. He had no problem being ridiculous in that movie, and I’ve loved him ever since. BTW it’s been a long time since I laughed till I had tears in my eyes during a movie. The script for “The Proposal” was obviously more a vehicle for Sandra Bullock, not Ryan.

  17. fancyamazon says:

    I’ve heard about how he is a douche and all, but absolutely loved him in “foolproof” which was made in canada, but showed a side of him I haven’t seen since. I almost have to love him, even though he’s a bit young for me ; ) since he’s canadian, and very cute.

  18. Maritza says:

    We never see him with Scarlett Johansen anymore.

  19. Jen says:

    I think he is possibly the hottest man alive. Skewer me if you like, but I’ve always loved him. He does a bit of writing as well and is funny, self-deprecating, and highly intelligent.

    I was blown away by his writing and really enjoyed who he is (it was a personal story about his brother, from what I remember). I wish I could find it but since ScarJo it’s difficult to find specific things.

  20. Feebee says:

    Phuck it, we should all walk around like we’re posing in a magazine.

  21. buckley says:

    He’s a one trick pony in my opinion.
    Pretty but looks dumb.

  22. Camille says:

    I’ve loved him since he did that Blade movie and saw what a hotass body he had lol, plus he was funny and delivered his lines well. I think he’s a competent actor and has done some good films over the last couple of years (The Nines, Chaos Theory). I don’t care if he’s a douche, I will never meet him, but I do enjoy looking at him. Oh but he does have very off taste in women lol.

  23. ItsComeToThis says:

    I created an account just to say YES, you have a witness. Clive Owen, all day, every day. Def. not enough films with him in it. Inside Man 2, I am waiting!

  24. ItsComeToThis says:

    Lucy2, I agree. Attractive guy (if you can get past the lack of upper lip and general weird looking mouth area)with an attractive body. However, I never get a leading man appeal from him. No tingles ever.

  25. WTF?!? says:

    I agree, he’s always seemed shot up the a$$ with himself, for no discernible reason. Frat boy swagger, busboy pedigree. Banging Scarlett Johansson (another overrated individual) is not acting training/credit.

  26. Fire says:

    I think he’s super hot, funny as hell and is very intelligent. I love a guy who will do the crap he has done for a laugh. I used to not like Alec Baldwin, but then he hosted SNL and my view of him completed changed. He’s still a little nutty in my book, but snuggling up to Adam Sandler in a sleeping bag in Canteen Boy – fucking hilarious! (I’m sure I am going to get railed for my immature sense of humor, but so be it.) A guy who can make me laugh is SEXY! Add that to his cut body, which I never really knew he had until that EW cover, and, yeah, I would hit that. ;o)

    Maybe he walks around like he is posing for a magazine because he sees the paparazzi and, in fact, he IS posing for a magazine ?? If I was followed by the paps I would for sure have my game face on 24/7 and try to give ’em my best angle. Come on, are you kidding me? All of the snarky (mine included!) comments about stars on here and other celeb sites – Horrible without makeup! Look at that outfit he chose to wear to walk his dog! Can’t believe she wore those shoes AGAIN! – shit like that? I would be mortified to step out of my house without consulting my hair/makeup/stylist team!

  27. d says:

    HELL ya on Clive! STILL the man, with kids to boot!

  28. lucy2 says:

    Oh, Clive Owen. I just started watching Duplicity last night, and remembered how very nice he is to watch!
    @Fire – I totally get what you’re saying about a role or performance changing the way you think about someone. Maybe someday that will happen for me a in role Ryan’s in and I’ll appreciate him, but so far nothing.

  29. paranel says:

    Zoolander anyone ?

  30. Mentok says:

    “Blue Steel” – ha!

    Nope. He’s still a douche no matter how pretty he’s packaged.

  31. millie says:

    harmless. cute even. full of himself? come on!- he’s canadian. is that possible? canadians always maintain a bit of humility by definition. at least it always seemed so to me.

  32. Ursula says:

    He leaves me cold, still cold after these pictures. He looks exactly the way he looked in the proposal. That movie was cringe-worthy. The acting was OK, the story line made me wince a number of times.

  33. ! says:

    Ugh, he makes pretty much any misogynistic frat boy flick that comes his way, and from all accounts is a huge whining baby. I don’t know how any stands him.

  34. uSheep says:

    i get the same impression from him..he just seems very smug, and his smile is creepy. i don’t find him attractive at all.
