Here are some surprising facts about Reynolds that you may not know
One Of His Friends Tried Selling Photos Of His Daughter
Being famous comes with a lot of rewards however it also comes with tonnes of drawbacks that the general public isn’t aware of. While some celebrities’ friends may not alter their behaviour because their friend is famous, others do. One of Reynolds’ closest friends attempted to sell images of Reynolds and Blake Lively’s child on the internet. Needless to say, they’re no longer friends.
He Loved Working At The Supermarket
Reynolds was a forklift driver at a Safeway supermarket in Vancouver, back in the 1990s. In an interview with CBC, he said how much he loved working there on overnight shifts and said his co-workers were some of the funniest people on earth. Some of the biggest impressions on him, actually, like as a performer, were the people, the people he was working with at night.
At One Point In Time He Decided To Quit Acting
This near-tragedy almost took place when Reynolds was much younger and still acting up Canada. He was only getting bit roles and not achieving the success he wanted. So Reynolds was so discouraged that he almost hung it up before he ever really got started.
He Said Filming “Green Lantern” Assisted Him With Getting Over His Fear Of Flying
Reynolds’ fear of flying came from a very bad skydiving session when he was a teenager. Here his first pack didn’t open and sent him free-falling through the air. Years later, he talked about getting over this fear by filming 2011’s “Green Lantern.”
He Was Once Married To Scarlett Johansson
Previously Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow in the film. Their relationship was short-lived, lasting just three years until the pair split up and looked for love elsewhere. The majority of people are absolutely oblivious that they were ever a pair.
The Movie He’s Seen The Most
In an interview, Reynolds said that the movie he’s rewatched the most times is Planes Trains and Automobiles. He feels that Steve Martin is “beautiful” in the film and John Candy is a “revelation”. Just like when you play at an online casino South Africa, every time he sees it he notices something new. There are references to the film littered throughout Deadpool 1 and 2.
