Remember that simultaneously barf-worthy and terribly sad photo of Ryan Reynolds trapped with Taylor Swift’s “Snake Squad: 4th of July Edition” that Pippi Yawnstocking malevolently put up on Instagram back in July? The photo in which poor Ryan mirrored Ben Affleck when he’s asked about his bad reviews? I mean:
Has a man ever looked more like he wished an anvil would drop from the sky and kill him on his head? Nope. And it turns out that “dead in the face” WAS the look for which he was going! He told Entertainment Weekly (via HuffPo) that he just can’t help it, though. Instead of “resting bitchface,” he has “resting please get my annoying actress wife off me so I can go drown myself in the ocean to escape this asshole party face.”
“That’s a problem I’ve had all my life,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
It’s polite of Ryan to blame himself for his “last day on death row” visage and not lay the blame where it belongs – ON NILS SJOBERG! Ugh, imagine you’re a celebrity hoping for a nice quiet 4th at your wife’s friend’s seaside mansion? But when you show up, there’s a camera crew, sets, a stylist and other assorted photoshoot accoutrement because of your fame whoring host’s insane thirst for attention? You’d look like you were just about to form a noose out of Tom Hiddleston’s “I HEART TS” tank, too.
