'Deadpool' actor addresses meme-spawning viral photo
Ryan Reynolds has explained why he looked like “a man whose soul is visibly exiting this earth” in a photo taken at Taylor Swift‘s 4th of July party earlier this year.
The Deadpool actor was among many famous faces at Swift’s party in the summer. Este Haim, St Vincent, Cara Delevingne and Tom Hiddleston were all in attendance.
Reynolds was pictured with wife Blake Lively, as well as Swift and then-boyfriend Hiddleston, at the party, with some fans describing Reynolds’ expression in the photo as looking “miserable”.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Reynolds said: “That’s a problem I’ve had all my life”, explaining: “If I’m not aware a photo is being taken, my natural resting face is one of a man dying.”
“I had no idea somebody was taking a photo. Therefore I was resting comfortably in my persona of a man whose soul is visibly exiting this earth,” he added.
