Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds has asked a man to marry him
Ryan Reynolds has proposed to a man.
The Deadpool 2 star, who is married to Blake Lively, popped the question on the red carpet for his new film.
Reynolds plays the pansexual main character in the film, which also features a same-sex couple in the shape of Brianna Hildebrand’s moody teenage mutant Negasonic Teenage Warhead and her new girlfriend, Shioli Kutsuna’s badass hero Yukio.
It also includes a bisexual, polyamorous superhero in the shape of Shatterstar, who has appeared in Marvel comics since 1991.
Ahead of the film’s release, Reynolds talked to a reporter from entertainment news site IGN, Max Scoville – but this was no regular red carpet interview.
Scoville, as it turned out, had been building up to this moment for most of his life.
“I’ve been a Deadpool fan since I was a little kid. Here’s my fifth-grade English book report,” he added, handing the actual report to Reynolds.
“Can you take a look at that? I got a B- on that.”
The actor, stunned, responded: “You did a fifth-grade book report on Deadpool. This is amazing.
“This is amazing,” he repeated.
