Excerpt from Details Magazine

HOW TO BECOME RYAN REYNOLDS

Step one: Come out of nowhere (which is to say, Canada) and hustle your way into TV movies and a kids’ series despite discouragement from your working-class Vancouver family. Step two: Make the jump to the big screen (1993′s Ordinary Magic—he played Ganesh, a boy raised in India sent to live with family in Ontario. Sample dialogue: “They are not so very different, basketball and yoga”). Step three: Drive to L.A. from Vancouver “on the whimmiest of whims” in 1995 with an aspiring-actor friend and, after a few years, land a part on a sitcom (Two Guys and a Girl). And here’s where the steps pile up and blend together, until finally, two decades later, you’re People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive and the CGI-swaddled flying green lead of a summer blockbuster.

Ryan wears the likes of Calvin Klein Underwear, Gucci, Prada, Dior Homme and John Varvatos.

This Summer sees him as the Green Lantern in GREEN LANTERN. He’s currently filming SAFE HOUSE with Denzel Washington, Brendan Gleeson & Olivia Wilde, which is set for a February 2012 release.

Man of the moment

Ryan Reynolds

GQ US
October 2010

Some people may see a pretty face, whilst others may look at him and think “oh he’s that dude from those comedies”…but take a look at Reynolds’ CV and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Not only has he been acting for over 20 years, he’s starred in “Two Guys and a Girl” – a hit US sitcom, played alongside Sandra Bullock in “The Proposal”, tackled the remake of “The Amityville Horror”, found time to film smaller, more independent projects *see “Waiting…” and “Paper Man”*, but he’s also managed to propel himself to action-hero status with “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and next year’s “Green Lantern“. If that wasn’t enough, 2010 has been another great year for the actor, with numerous releases such as “Buried“, an indie-thriller, set to be released at the end of the month.

Buried

tells the story of a contractor buried alive in Iraq. Blake Lively, who appears with Reynolds in the superhero film he is now making, Green Lantern, describes the mood before a Buried screening that had been set up for the Green Lantern cast and crew in New Orleans. What they already knew gave them some trepidation. The whole of Buried consists of footage of the buried man—Reynolds—in his coffin. The whole film. The camera never once leaves his enclosure. How could that work, or be worthwhile, or even tolerable? Reynolds himself had much the same reaction when he was first told about the script: “I just thought, There’s no possible way that could be any good.”

On filming Buried: “I’ll never, ever in my life complain on a set again after being on that set,” he says. “Sixteen, seventeen days of doing that… It was such a state of emotional distress.”…Reynolds was constantly cut by contact with the unfinished wood of the coffin, his hands were regularly burned from the lighter he uses through much of the film to illuminate his constricted surroundings, and a bald patch formed on the back of his head where it rubbed against sand on the coffin’s floor.

On wearing a motion-capture suit for the filming of the “Green Lantern”: “My fantasy dancing jammies,” he says. “Kind of ridiculous, I know.” And it feels worse than it looks. “It’s made of actual woven misery,” he says. “Whatever material they’ve used, they’ve managed to make it the most heat-conducting substance known to man. I literally begged them to just put me in a nonbreathable rubber unitard.”

On his torso: “It was like a project. I just did everything they told me to.”…His remarkable torso was first developed during rehearsals for Blade: Trinity, the unsatisfying continuation of Wesley Snipes’s vampire series. “Everything went so horribly wrong on that set,” he remembers, though he still takes some pride in the film’s most celebrated linguistic invention (“you cock-juggling thundercunt”). At least Blade: Trinity gave him the body. He worked out for six months beforehand…Right now he has that body again. Reynolds is at pains to point out that this isn’t his natural, or permanent, way of being, just something he is currently doing for the third time, for Green Lantern, after Blade: Trinity and The Proposal…It was a strange sort of sleight-of-hand trick I learned—I could do it again if I needed to and get there faster if I needed to.”

Ready to take risks

Blake Lively

Marie Claire UK
October 2010

There’s no doubt, The Town {starring and directed by Ben Affleck}, a story set in Boston’s often-brutal underworld, provides further proof of the common belief that Lively not only has the acting skills to make the notoriously difficult leap from teen-soap to big screen, but also the ability to challenge the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman in the starlet stakes.

Her fiscal situation will no doubt improve next year when…she will appear alongside Ryan Reynolds in the sure-fire superhero blockbuster, Green Lantern.

‘So I went to dinner with Karl Lagerfeld and we got to spend a lot of priceless time together. Oh my gosh, riding around in Karl Lagerfield’s Rolls-Royce with the top down. Insane!’

A young Blake…used to visit Disneyland with her mother twice a week so the two could, in her words, ‘have some extra time to bond’…I hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse. ‘Don’t you love that? she says.
