Actor Ryan Reynolds debuted his newest movie “Life” with his BFF and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal at SXSW this weekend, but it is “Deadpool 2” that everyone wants to know more about!
Reynolds recently gave fans a sneak peek of the sequel, with a trailer that showed off his bare behind. When “Extra’s” Renee Bargh asked for his wife Blake Lively's response to the booty shot, Ryan, smiled, saying, “Oh, splendid.” Jake also saw the “fun” teaser, joking, “Yeah, [Blake] never gets any time with your ass.” Ryan added, “She didn't roll her eyes at all. For like 30 straight minutes.”
Ryan has been campaigning for Hugh Jackman to join the movie, admitting, “Yeah, I try. I've always been trying… I tried to get him in ‘Life' to play the alien and he wouldn't do that. He's a very tough catch, that Hugh Jackman.”
Ryan also cleared the air on saying he would "rather drink liquid rabies" than travel with his kids, Ines and James. He commented, “That doesn't mean I won't travel with my kids. I'm just saying if we had to go to London, I'd prefer driving there.”
Ryan and Jake travel to space in their sci-fi thriller “Life,” playing astronauts who discover dangerous life on Mars. Jake explained people are obsessed with space travel because, “I think the unknown is a thing everybody is fascinated by. I think the unknown is terrifying and exciting.”
The duo pointed out that they are just fine staying on Earth in real life. Ryan said, “It's pretty good right here. Especially when you're in Austin. You're like, 'I don't really need to go anywhere else.’"
