Somehow we find this very, very hard to believe, but Ryan Reynolds wants to convince his throngs of fans that he looked terrible when he was in his twenties. Doubtful!
In a new interview, he revealed, “I recently saw a picture from when I was just a pup – maybe twenty or twenty-one years old. And I look pretty bad. I’ve got some weird facial hair, and my hair is glopped with about six pounds of gel. So I really don’t shy away from aging at all. I love getting older.”
He also revealed that he got a tattoo of a cannon in Vancouver during a “fleeting moment of stupidity” about fourteen years ago. He said, “A lot of people have really beautiful tattoos, and I get real tattoo envy. But then other people basically just treat them like bumper stickers for their bodies.”
Despite feeling like he was terrible looking when he was younger, he is now more comfortable with his appearance. As well he should be! He said, “I look at guys like Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart, and what they were wearing is what you’d wear now. I just hope in twenty years, when you see a photo of me at a premiere, I’ll look good.”
We know he will! What do you think?
