Ryan Reynolds and Kristen Stewart once starred in a 2009 movie called Adventureland. Directed by Greg Mottola, the movie featured some R-rated adult scenes in the movie between the lead actors. According to the reports, Stewart and Reynolds were not at all comfortable with the on-screen chemistry.
Reynolds recalled that he never felt as old as the day he shot Adventureland. Talking about the onscreen relationship between himself and Kristen Stewart, the actor recalled that he felt humility every day while on the sets and that it was very awkward between the two.
Ryan Reynolds Had A Tough Time With Kristen Stewart
Talking about the movie, Ryan Reynolds recalled a time working on sets with Kristen Stewart. Sharing the screen together in 2009, the duo starred in Adventureland. Starring alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Reynolds, and Stewart did not have the time of their life since it was so awkward.
In an interview with Collider, the Deadpool actor revealed that the Twilight actress had an uncomfortable time with him. Although later, the actor did admit that the age-difference part between the two actors was a pretty cool aspect of the movie no matter the uneasy feeling that they had between each other.
“I’ve never felt so old, yeah, Daily. God. It was a routine of humility. It was kind of cool. I like that aspect, too. Obviously, this guy is having a pretty inappropriate relationship with this very, very young girl but the spirit on the set really felt like where I was eight or nine years ago. It’s a pretty cool pace to be now.”
The actor also revealed why he starred in the movie despite his hatred of being a villain. His is an interesting take on an antagonistic role and why he decided to star in it.
Ryan Reynolds Hates Being A Villain
Talking about the movie, Reynolds stated that there was a very particular reason why he picked the role of Mike Connell. Stating that a villain is just a parody of a person, Reynolds chose the role since his character was not a villain but also not a hero (just like Deadpool).
“Usually when you’re doing the 100% villain thing, it’s not interesting because it’s a parody. It’s a guy twisting his mustache or something. I like that he felt like a real guy. He’s not a hero, but he’s not a villain for sure. All the characters in the film felt like that. Everyone walks that line between nefarious and benevolent, and I think that’s what makes it an interesting film.”
The actor recently confirmed that Deadpool 3 started shooting this past week. The actor will be joined by his best friend Hugh Jackman as the movie is set for a release date of 8th November 2024.
