Ryan Reynolds in NYC

Posted on March 27, 2013

Darlings, here is your Boy of the Day, Mr. Ryan Reynolds, walki–

Hold up.


Ryan Reynolds grabs some lunch at Burger King in New York City.

RYAN REYNOLDS EATS BURGER KING? What the FUCK, world. We could live on nothing but protein shakes and dreams, doing a thousand crunches a day and we’ll never have a set of abs like Mr. Ryan. Hell, we gain at least a pound by walking past a Burger King, which we do constantly, never going inside, because we don’t eat fast food lest our faces blow up like Macy’s Day balloons, and now fuckers like this little single-digit bodyfat freak of nature get to flaunt their abs AND their Whoppers.

Bitch. We hate him. Your yellow pants are stupid, Ryan.

Ladies, do you all feel better now, knowing that men feel exactly the same way about male celebrities as y’all feel about those skinny bitch lady celebrities?

Okay, FINE. It’s kind of a cute outfit. We have this thing about henley collars (this thing being, we don’t like them), but we’d probably wear some variation of this, given the chance. We just wouldn’t wear it to Burger King because we have the metabolisms of human beings and not genetic freaks who should be set loose on an ice floe, never to bother humanity again with their —

Alright! Alright! We’ll shut up now.

  • Surely it’s not his… he didn’t put a straw in the drink 😉

    • “Straws are for sissies” – my husband ; )

    • alyce1213

      Just waiting to get where he’s going, I think. What’s the big deal?

    • I never put a straw in until I need it — the little tabs on the straw hole keep liquid in anyway, just like a solid lid, whereas once the straw goes in, when I bobble it as I will inevitably do, I’m going to squeeze in an attempt to get a grip and then a bunch comes up the straw and gets all over…

  • I love how the burger is not only out of the bag, but also perfectly positioned for the logo to be front and center.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      That’s the first thing I noticed! I thought, there’s no way in hell he’s a spokesperson for Burger King, but why then, would the burger be out of the bag and perfectly showing the logo

      • poggi

        It’s probably reflex at this point. Celebrities don’t even know they’re doing it. I still pushed my glasses up on my nose before I sit down and type something even though I no longer have them.

    • That was the first thing i noticed too! Perfect product logo placement.

      • StellaZafella

        Yeah, like the FIRST thing I noticed was the “product” placement…Ah’m jus’ talkin’ here…

      • Nope. Not perfect at all. Look at the cup… it’s turned around weird.

    • That actually makes sense to me, because I am a special order pain in the ass, so before I leave ANYWHERE, I take the sandwich out and check it and then refold it and sometimes it just doesn’t go back in the bag.

  • Kay

    Are their like…classes…on effortlessly holding packaging with the logos facing forward?

    • lovelyivy

      Possibly scheduled adjacent to classes on how to hold a handbag juuuuuust right so the paparazzi get a good shot of the merch?

    • “Ryan Reynolds, brought to you by Burger King” makes me extra sad for some reason. Product snobbery, I guess. But seriously, when in the holy hell do you ever take your burger out of the bag for no reason? It’s just too preposterous!

      • Alyssa

        Maybe he ordered a burger for someone else and didn’t want to get the two confused? My husband hates pickles, so I always take his out of the bag so as not to get it mixed up with mine, which usually has extra pickles.

      • j_anson

        Or maybe he was about to start eating it on the street, saw the paparazzi, and realized he didn’t want a bunch of pictures on the net of him actually in the middle of the chowing-down process?

      • Because you HAD a reason? I do it all the time to check the order, because I’m not eating it if it’s wrong and I don’t want to go back.

    • *snort* or as I would say in german “Ich schmeiss mich weg vor Lachen” – thank you for this comment!

    • Kay

      oh my god… THERE! i hate my phone, i hate my phone, i hate my phone!

    • Le_Sigh

      Ooh – thank you for mentioning this! I knew something was fishy – is the male equivalent of ladystars “candidly” displaying gifted handbags?

  • Jsphn

    Love this outfit. I’m not especially into him, but this I can totally dig.

  • AwesomeMargie

    I hate this guy. Ugh. Fine ass motherfucker….HATE HIM. (MMmmmmmm at both him and that whopper.)

  • VeryClaire

    What makes you think the Burger King thing isn’t just for the photographers and he’d never in a million years eat that? Like how female stars will talk about how much bacon they eat so people will stop speculating that they’re anorexic when in reality, they haven’t eaten bacon in 6 years. Or maybe his publicist wants him to have a “regular guy” reputation.

    • alyce1213

      I’m just not getting the feeling it a setup shot. It’s not impossible to imagine that any guy would buy Burger King. It’s normal.

  • Let’s be real. That’s probably his only solid food intake for the week. Alternatively, we can start a mega “Blake Lively’s guaranteed preggers” rumour if we say deduce that he’s most likely buying it for his wife because of those wacky pregnancy cravings! It’s not an unfair assumption, really. Burger King is the wackiest thing I can imagine a Hollywood eight-packer to be holding.

    • Nah… he’s said before that he’s naturally very lanky and it’s only because of working out that he has any muscle. So why not eat the BK? Either you’ll burn it off easily or you’ll turn it into muscle.

  • I don’t mine a henley collar normally, but it does merge into the button band of the cardigan oddly in this case.

  • PeggyOC

    Clearly, he’s an alien. From the planet Ab-u-lush. Where they consume garbage and produce six-packs. I for one welcome our alien overlords.

    • Sobaika

      As long as they teach me their ways.

    • poggi

      My alien overlords are more likely to be from planet Ab-u-full where beverage containers can also be used as a metaphor for the abdominal region, in this case it’s a couple of two liters.

  • veriance

    He does nothing for me (ditto Gosling) and why is the collar flipped up on the coat? Is it starched that way?

  • TAGinMO

    While I generally agree with TLo as to yellow pants, they’re doing AMAZING things for him, package-wise. Home Of The Whopper, indeed!

    • The Burger King is just a ruse to get you to look at his crotch area. I certainly wouldn’t have noticed the… uh… Ryan-conda(?) if I wasn’t checking out the food.

  • formerlyAnon

    Did y’all just meet a big deadline? Get a great night’s sleep? Alternatively, on a roll fueled by caffeine, adrenaline and punch drunk-level fatigue?

    ‘Cause you guys are on fire today.

  • Carrieanno

    The second I read “Hold up” my eyes immediately went to his Jon Hamm place. Uh oh.

  • He’s such a cutie, and I sort of like the getup. I could see my bf wearing everything here except the yellow pants. He’d look at me like I was a crazy person if I brought those home for him.

    And Burger King?? If one is going to splurge on fast food, BK would be the LAST place to go.

  • jw_ny

    Ryan looks good here…I wouldn’t mind taking a bite of his burger…. 😉

  • aeb1986

    You guys are especially hilarious today. Thank you for making my Wednesday morning a hell of a lot more entertaining

    • Kato16

      This. Giggling after a very long day of work.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Calm dowm. I smell a rat. I think he is messing with all our minds. Logo is too perfectly displayed and he has an ever so slight smirk going on. That meal did not pass his lips – he just wants us to think he can eat that stuff without repercussions. Crazy-assed actors for you.

    • urbanamish

      this is staged. burger king just launched new, healthy turkey burgers this week!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Yes, why is he holding the burger outside of the bag..seems kinda strange!

    • MemHey

      Satisfied that the pap had been used appropriately, he turned a corner and deposited all BK product in the nearest bin.

    • StellaZafella

      …Crazy assed actor with a really good sense of humor who will find a large sum deposited to his bank account just for these pics alone.

      I can’t help giggling that Mr Reynolds, maybe, went through this whole thing silently saying “Neener neener neeeeener!” to us all.

    • The bag is so perfect, it looks photoshopped on.

  • Guest

    Whats with the letters ‘JJ’ on the crotch in the first 2 photos??

    • PastryGoddess

      That is weird. did they forget to photoshop that out?

    • jw_ny

      seems Just Jared is having a bit of fun there! can’t say I blame him. gotta love a good celebrity crotch watcher…;)

  • I used to have a deep and tingly crush on RR. Then someone pointed out his “gerbil face”. That and his taste in what I suspect are bimbos has cooled my fires. But I do love those abs!

  • Catiline

    Give him credit, if I had participated in some of those scenes in “Waiting” I would probably never eat out again.

  • kirkyo

    Well done Mr. Reynolds. Put in the effort, but not too fussy.

  • fungstyle

    If it makes you feel any better, TLo, he supposedly ordered a turkey burger and iced tea according to the gossip blogs. BK is testing turkey burgers in certain markets this spring (god, sometimes I hate the things I know because of working in marketing).

  • notterriblybitter

    Yes, I do feel better knowing that men feel the same about male celebrities.

  • Personally I love henley’s. He looks fantastic.

  • Little_Olive

    My guess is… that burger found its way to a dumpster on the block following the picture-taking dance.

    He does nothing for me and I also don’t like henley collars, but I have to admit he is wearing it well and I’d love my sartorially challenged man to dress like that any day.

  • Maybe he got a salad?

  • random_poster

    He doesn’t do anything for me, but he looks fab.

  • sablehunter

    Total promo shot. He probably threw the food out at the next trash can. Sweater cardi is adorable.

  • Airkisses

    And on today’s episode of Celebrities! They’re Just Like Us…

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Sure, I always dress up like a stylist put my outfit together to go to BURGER KING. Tomorrow, my favorite Anna Sui dress to Jamba Juice!

  • Tell me he doesn’t have his wallet on a chain…please.

  • My first thought was exactly…..HE EATS BURGER KING?!

  • Janet B

    I like a henley collar, but only in a beefier fabric.

    Maybe after the photos he tips the photographer with a BK meal.

  • Alyssa

    Love everything about this…except Burger King. I have a passionate dislike for their food. Now, if he was holding Sonic, that would be a whole ‘nother story. Yummm…to him & Sonic! 🙂

    • Wow, voted down? I dislike Sonic, but that’s kind of harsh. Actually Sonic is alright. But too much ice in their drinks.

      • Alyssa

        Someone must really hate Sonic to vote down…

    • ankali

      It’s a wonderful restaurant!

  • I got my wisdom teeth out last week and I’ve been severely considering McNuggets as something to change up my diet from “smoothie – soup – soft sandwich” because I am SICK of it.
    But yeah, screw him. Also, I like henleys, but I have mixed feelings about button-down cardigans because of their intrinsic capacity to make young men look like Mr.Rogers/grandfathers, and I think the henley+cardigan combo, rather than ironically skirting it, just dived right into old man territory. But I also don’t really like Ryan Reynolds that much, so it might just be that.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I am all for that sporty chain. Me want to grab it and do stuff.

  • StellaZafella

    I like a Henley on a well built man…like Ryan, it threatens a peek at the collarbone of Adonis…which I get a silent thrill from.
    Any day now…he can flaunt his abs AND his whopper at me.

  • mhleta

    This goes against everything I’ve read about him. I’m feeling so lost and confused right now. The world has clearly come off its axis again.

  • MilaXX

    Isn’t his soda over the legal limit? lol

  • GorgeousThings

    OMG, you slay me!!!
    Jesus, here I was last night thinking, “How much am I going to gain for eating 7 shrimp, 3 leaves of lettuce and 2 clams at Emilio’s with Emmett McCarthy?”
    And RR gets to eat a whopper? There is no God.

    • GorgeousThings

      Oh yeah I forgot – a whopper AND a super-sized soft drink.
      There is no God.

    • H2olovngrl


  • kat89

    i really hope Burger King is compensating him for the free advertising.
    Also, I love henley shirts on (most)guys…

  • and….what’s in your pants Mr Reynolds??

    PS LOVE the Oliver Peoples!

  • He didn’t put a straw in his drink before he left the BK. Ergo, staged.
    My brilliant analysis.

    • alyce1213

      To me it means he’s just waiting to get where he’s going to drink it. I’ve done that, it’s not strange.

      • Especially if it’s not for him.

        • alyce1213

          Exactly! Why is this even an issue?

  • jetpackdino

    Oh hello Mr. Reynolds, fancy bumping into you like this. /bats lashes. Btw I let me help you with that last button on your cardigan, your hands are full, I’ll just fix this for you really quick. Oh is that me running my fingers all over your abs? Um… yes. Wow will you look at the time kthxbai!

  • lobsterlen

    Ryan is going to be in trouble with Mike Bloomberg for that super sized soda.

  • Imasewsure

    He looks cute as usual. I’d like to think he’s bringing the BK Broiler and rings home to the Mrs. who secretly binges on junk food but won’t ruin her image but picking it up in person.

  • YoungSally

    Looks like he has a little “Hamm-burger” in his pants.

    Sorry — it’s been a long week.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      That ain’t little! 🙂

      • YoungSally

        Yes — but more of a “whopper jr.”

        Brought to you by Burger King.

  • H2olovngrl

    I am sure that is an iced tea, because a coke would take this a bridge too far.

  • I wonder what yields the bigger paycheck, carrying a burger or carrying a handbag for a brand. Prob the burger, but I’d rather get the handbag, although I guess I could buy more handbags with the burger money.

    • snarkykitten

      well he’s a dude and not a purse-carrying dude at that, so I guess all that’s left is carrying burgers!

  • I LOVE this look, and I LOVE this man. YUMMY (no, not the BK)

  • Tatiana Luján

    I want a double stacker now.

  • Erica_Vuitton


    And Ryan looks tasty too.

  • Trisha26

    Maybe that nasty fast food is a present for Blake! Then we can hate them both!

  • Zippypie

    The BK Lounge. I would have loved to see him in a BK crown for giggles. He looks very cute, dammit.

  • MandyM

    Am I the only one who noticed his panty line? He needs some different undershorts with these pants.

  • guest2visits

    This is such a beautiful vision, I can’t fault him a crappy burger.

  • librarygrrl64

    “Ladies, do you all feel better now, knowing that men feel exactly the same way about male celebrities as y’all feel about those skinny bitch lady celebrities?”

    Difference being that here is pretty solid proof that he probably does eat Burger King food. Whereas all of those size 0 female celebs who claim to “eat like pigs” and “love Big Macs?” Probably liars.

  • LuluinLaLa

    Before I read that the BK was likely staged to introduce new healthy meals, I thought for sure they were for wifey Blake, who no one has seen, and maybe has secret pregnancy cravings?

  • ccm800

    paid to carry a burger. wow. Anyone else remember when doing some shit like this was a career kill?

  • Contralto

    what a cutie!

  • DesertDweller79

    This can’t be real. I refuse to accept that Ryan Reynolds eats anything at Burger King. I can’t even see the clothing. All I see is the food from Burger King. And it seems like some sort of optical illusion. Just no way. No.
