It’deadpool sex a job most actors would relish. But Ryan Reynolds complained about having to film a year’s worth of sex scenes in just one day while shooting his forthcoming film Deadpool.
The 39-year-old revealed on The Fix that he and his Brazilian co-star Morena Baccarin captured their characters’ entire sexual relationship over the course of one day but described the results as ‘horrifying’. Describing the marathon montage as ‘epic’, he said: ‘It’s not as titillating as it is just sort of funny and horrifying at times. It was a year’s worth of sex in one day. Which sounds a lot more romantic than it is, trust me.
His co-star, Brazilian actress Morena, however named the shoot as a highlight of filming, according to the interviewer. In the film released on Thursday, Ryan plays cancer-stricken mercenary Wade Wilson who, in an attempt to save his life, is subjected to an experimental treatment which causes mutations. Hot and heavy:Speaking of filming multiple sex scenes back-to-back, Ryan said: ‘It was a year’s worth of sex in one day. He is inadvertently left with healing superpowers, but also disfigured skin, an unstable mind, and a ‘dark, twisted’ sense of humor. Deadpool’s love interest in the film is Vanessa, a prostitute who falls in love with Wade before his transformation.
Their passionate relationship is documented in ‘a rather large, grandiose sex montage’, as Ryan describes it. The scenes were shot back-to-back in a single day – which the Canadian hunk admits was more hectic than romantic. Later the Green Lantern star reflected on his latest superhero character, noting similarities between himself and the fictional patient. Ryan, who co-wrote the script along with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, said: ‘I have a filthy sense of humour that I freely input into the character. A lot of the Deadpool humour is self-effacing.
He’s making fun of himself – and I make fun of myself regularly. Earlier this week, Ryan enjoyed a reunion with X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star Hugh Jackman, praising the Australian’s new film Eddie The Eagle. He posted a photo of the pair on Instagram with the caption: ‘Saw EDDIE THE EAGLE tonight! Probably the best underdog film I’ve ever seen. The character of Deadpool made his Marvel debut in the X-Men series, in which Hugh, 47, plays the mutant Wolverine.
