Ryan Reynolds on His New Role: 'I Definitely Did Not Look Good'

09/17/2010 at 01:30 PM ET


Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to hard-core fitness regimens, having even revealed that to get in superhero shape for next summer’s Green Lantern, “You spend one day a week eating what you want and the other six days eating drywall and wood chips.” His latest role in the white-knuckle thriller, Buried, in which he plays an American in Iraq who awakens finds himself 6-feet underground in a coffin, required no such diet and fitness routine. “Um…I’m in a coffin. Why would I have to get buff?” the actor deadpanned at the film’s Cinema Society and 2(x)ist screening in N.Y.C. on Thursday night. When he emerged at the end of the 17-day shoot, spent entirely in a box the size of his 6’2′ frame, “I definitely did not look good,” Reynolds told reporters. “I’d seen better days. I looked a lot like Don Knotts. If you know who that is, that explains it.” –Suzanne Zuckerman

I love this guy. I’m starting a campaign to get him the role of Marshall Dillon. It would be another part he’d be great in and make his own.

Even though Ryan Reynolds felt that way, he still looks good!

I think he is such a great actor and I look forward to seeing him in up coming movies!

Gerri on

Would love to see him in another comedy with
Sandra Bullock. They have great chemistry.


He is a tall and very healthy looking handsome man. If you think he looks good on the big screen, he looks even better live and in person. No air brushing, no makeup it is not all camera work that makes him look good!!

Properly constructed post, and that i in addition at this time realized that will many teams tend to be prepared as compared to other folks (given that everybody is exclusive) would certainly reveal the same thought. I think you will save this blog working well.
