I really enjoy watching actors who play roles that closely resemble themselves. Take Lena Dunham as Hannah Horvath in Girls, for example. I imagine that she's equally difficult to deal with in real life. I mean, how could she not be, right? That said, I have a feeling Ryan Reynolds didn't have too much difficultly playing Deadpool. No, not because he's some sort of twisted vigilante. Wait, yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. He IS some sort of twisted vigilante, except instead of beating the shit out of people with his fists, he does it with words—on twitter.
His most recent act of heroism involved a young female fan, a prom, and the asshole ex-boyfriend who sparked it all. Take a look! Admittedly, I didn't think it was possible to find him more attractive than I already do, but there he goes, always surprising me—setting the bar higher and higher for my future husband (needless to say, I'm never getting married).
It's not his response that I consider savage. It's the fact HE said it, and thusly the thousands and thousands and THOUSANDS of likes and retweets (not to mention media coverage) will force this girl's boyfriend to not only acknowledge their breakup, but mostly likely reeaally regret it! Way to go Reynolds, you're a gem.
