Ryan Reynolds' Nude Scene In 'Deadpool' Isn't His First Skin-Bearing Occasion
Even if superhero movies aren't normally your jam, the new flick Deadpool is giving you some extra incentive to go check it out. For starters, it stars Ryan Reynolds, and then there's the fact that it's hitting theaters just in time for Valentine's Day, therefore providing you with an opportunity to spend V-Day with your favorite star instead of some underwhelming dude you met on Bumble. And finally, there's this: There's a Ryan Reynolds' nude scene in Deadpool. Yes, you read that correctly: Deadpool features Reynolds naked, during a scene in which the protagonist, entirely nude, dukes it out with villain Ajax (played by Ed Skrein). Suddenly, this new movie seems very interesting.
Reynolds opened up to Buzzfeed about the clothes-free fight, which he said was based on Viggo Mortenson's sauna fight scene in 2007's Eastern Promises. Said the actor of shooting the nude scene, “There’s nothing else you can do except to just sorta grin, bear it, and go, ‘All right guys, we’re all going to get to really know each other today. I may be sitting on this man’s face at some point, he may be sitting on mine.’ It was ugly but necessary.”
It seems like Reynolds handled the situation like a pro, perhaps in part because he has previous experience appearing on-screen in the buff. Here are seven other times he bared it all (or a least a lot) for your viewing pleasure.
Reynolds made bloody and battered look good in this 2004 thriller, in which he played a vampire hunter.
The actor was anything but shy as party boy Van Wilder in this National Lampoon comedy.
The Amityville Horror
Although he was in the midst of being possessed by some sort of demon in 2005's remake of The Amityville Horror, Reynolds still looked damn fine.
In this rom-com, Reynolds had an unintentional nude run-in with Sandra Bullock while getting ready to shower. No worries, Ryan!
Yes, this movie tanked, but at no fault of Reynolds' flawless physique.
This lesser-known work of Reynolds' also featured Melissa McCarthy, Elle Fanning, and some unexpected shirtlessness.
Buying The Cow
This movie features a hilarious scene in which Reynolds is unintentionally nude in public. It takes a very secure man to rock a child's Spiderman shirt as a loincloth.
As you can see, although Deadpool is Reynolds' first official nude fight scene, the actor is no stranger to taking it off on camera.
