Ryan Reynolds ‘Details’ cover and interview
One of the sexiest men alive, Ryan Reynolds, covers Details Magazine June 2011 issue and with two movies coming up in this summer’s sure-to-be blockbuster The Green Lantern and in the comedy The Change-Up, one of the best things is all the publicity he does and the magazine features on him.
Here are some excerpts from his Details interview:
On his ability to do drama, comedy, action, big-budget and indie films: “I’m really fucking lucky that I hit it late,” he says. “None of this happened to me in my early twenties, so I didn’t configure myself at an early age in the audience’s mind as one guy.”
On the tabloid frenzy following the announcement of his divorce from Scarlett Johansson: “My face was on the cover of magazines I’d worked very hard to prevent being in. … The media wasn’t invited to my marriage, and they’re definitely not invited into the divorce. … “What was happening privately was the exact opposite of what was being reported. There was no story and no scandal.”
Showing his off-screen sense of humor: “You want to see what I’m like when we turn the tape recorder off?” he asks, affecting a very good quavering, crazy-person baritone. “I slit throats, that’s what I do. I only drink panda tears. Do not bring me water. Do not bring me filtered water. I want the tears of a newborn panda, and I will have them—because I’m Ryan Reynolds!“
