Ryan Reynolds in New Orleans

Posted on October 25, 2013

We never really did cotton to Ryan’s particular combination of blandness and unearned smugness, but there’s just something about a guy in cute cuffed pants and a t-shirt playing with his dawg that melts away any iciness in our hearts.


Ryan Reynolds takes a break from filming ‘Selfless’ in New Orleans to play with his dog.

Also: dat ass.

    He looks sadder than Keanu eating sandwich… why so sad Ryan?

    • Julie Ree

      Maybe he’s been hanging out with Carey Mulligan (who always looks so sad lately).

      • Karen Belgrad

        Or he’s been made aware of his wife’s red carpet (lack of) stylings!

    • Daktari100

      He’s hungry. A sandwich is probably a good idea for him.

  • Lanus

    Hello, Ryan, may I borrow your dog? I’d like to see if my colorist could do a match.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I will stick with my opinion of “Meh” with him.

  • MilaXX

    Ryan? – no, Dog? – yes

  • Emily Giovanni

    I need a better view of that dog!

    • gabbilevy

      That’s all I was thinking as I scrolled thru. Ignored Ryan completely, was totally disappointed by the lack of dog.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    You’re never fully dressed without a smile, you douche.

    For some reason, he just rubs me the wrong way.

  • Maryanne525

    I think I died a little with the second to last photo. The man is just beautiful.

  • Latin Buddy

    You you guys PLEASE help me with the issue of cuffing jeans/pants? In the past, you two have said they make the wearer look short but does that happen because of the width of the cuff or how high they’re cuffed?

    • Glam Dixie

      I think it could be either or, depends on the height (leg length) of the cuffer and the cuff. If you must cuff your pants I would think a slimmer cuff rather than a wide one that shortens the leg line.

      • Synnae

        I’d say a slimmer one too but also depends on your height. His cuffs are pretty much down to his ankles so it doesn’t make too much of a difference.

  • I have a tumultuous love affair with RR. For years I thought he was oh so adorable, and seemingly hilarious, with abs of a god. But then someone called him Gerbil Face and I couldn’t unsee it. Add to that he married, not one, but two insufferable women and the gossip is that he’s kind of a boring, controlling douche. But then we come back around to his hands, his arms, dat ass, and a healthy reminder of the unworldly abs. I am a conflicting sea of emotional attraction and possible repulsion.

    • marlie

      I’m with you 100%. My love for him peaked when he was hanging around with his pal Sandra Bullock in the months immediately after his split from ScarJo. There was apparently nothing romantic, but they were just so charming together.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I like to think of it as the Sandra Bullock effect.

        • I am so infatuated with her.
          A lady who never hooked her star to any other really. Married a real wild card, later than most women chose for their first trip down the aisle. She is good friends (drinking buddies?) with some the hottest, most long term bachelors (pre marriage McConaughey, Reeves, Clooney) in the business. You rarely hear of any diva antics on or off set and she seems to just sail through it all with grace and good humor. Clearly, these man children are not good enough for her, and I bet her filters on on lock down after the Vanilla Gorilla disaster, but I wish she’d find her match.

          • Sarah

            Ha Vanilla Gorilla! Mebbe though, she don’t need a match. I like the idea of her and Clooney just hanging out together, having trysts with whoever they feel like, and showing up to events looking fab like they have for Gravity.

          • marlie

            These are all of the reasons why she’s always been one of my favorites. And I think she’d be SUCH a hoot to hang out with – funny and down-to-earth.

          • sagecreek

            Plus, she showed up at the Razzies. That takes stones and an excellent sense of humor!

      • How many times have I pressed pause right when his naked self slams into her naked self during The Proposal? More times than I should admit here in public. (They had to have done IT. Had to have. Friends with Benefits isn’t just for 20 somethings)

        • marlie

          That movie is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Cracks me up every time.

    • filmcricket

      I feel like he suffers from Ted Danson/Rob Lowe Syndrome: he’s a character actor in a leading man’s body. I’ve always enjoyed his TV appearances as the hot wiseass, but he went after the romcom/super hero roles because that’s what you do when your main calling cards as an actor are charm and abs. I have a feeling his best work probably lies ahead when he’s no longer quite so pretty.

      • formerlyAnon

        This. Though it might just be that his brand of pretty doesn’t rivet me, so I expect more (too much) of the acting end of the equation in movies that are themselves kind of fluffy.

      • JasmineAM

        I recommend “Buried” for anyone who’s interested in seeing Ryan Reynolds in a serious movie. It is one of my favorites.

        • filmcricket

          Oh dear god, no, I will never see that movie. Worst nightmare, right there.

          But yeah, I wasn’t saying he’s not capable of more, just that he’s not, and probably never will be, a Daniel Day-Lewis or a Philip Seymour Hoffman. He kind of strikes me as “Affleck-lite”: good-looking dude, fairly self-aware, smarter than a lot of the roles he’s been given but not the best choice for any real heavy lifting. So he could go the Affleck route and start managing his own projects, or he could just wait it out like Ted Danson did and enjoy playing snarly cranks once he’s no longer a heartthrob.

          • doodle_bug

            I agree with everything you said. He’s like the male Jennifer Aniston, clearly gifted comedically, but just can’t really make it over the hump into A+ moviestardom. Must be frustrating.

            And as a total aside, I never thought Ted Danson was good-looking at all, until he started playing the snarly cranks. He’s delicious on CSI.

    • RebeccaKW

      He’s so funny, too, which really is the #1 hook for me. There are some outtakes on Youtube from the Blade movie he was in, where he just ad libs several different lines. His humor wears me down.

      • YES! Humor is the all time trump card. I’ve seen him be funny, he started in comedy, I hope the rumors of his stick in the mudness are just haters hatin’.

  • Mrs. Julien

    [plodding along at work] Oh ya, it’s Sausage Friday! [continuing plodding along at work, but with salacious intermissions]

  • muelonil

    Dessert for breakfast!

  • shorty j

    how can someone with a dog that cute look so damn cranky about playing with it? pshaw.

    • boweryboy

      I would probably be cranky too if a dozen paps were lurking in the bushes snapping my photo. Although, it’s still not much of an excuse if you’re star.

    • mlle

      I’ll give him a pass on that. My dog is adorable but also powered by an energy source I wish I could bottle and sell to tired office workers, and sometimes I play only grudgingly so that she’ll chill for a bit.

  • boweryboy

    He’s instant oatmeal bland.

    • Glam Dixie

      I raise your bland oatmeal and bid cream of wheat bland.

      • boweryboy

        I raise your cream of wheat bland and fold with a malt-o-meal bland.

  • SugarSnap108

    I like his outfit and his doggie.

  • marlie

    Cute guy + dog gets me EVERY time.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Oh, how I love Fridays.

  • mlle

    He’s never done much for me either, but I’m glad I clicked because PUPPY.

  • Aidan B

    The dog is the best part of this post. I just do. not. get it.

  • KinoEye

    The dawg is stealing the show. Doesn’t help that he does absolutely nothing for me.

  • traceyishere

    I don’t get the t-shirt over a t-shirt look but who cares, it’s Ryan.

    • marlie

      I don’t get it either. The bf wears an undershirt under a “nice” t-shirt. Makes no sense.

  • sagecreek

    “Unearned smugness”, oh yes! I’ve never been able to articulate that, but oh, yes.

    Cute doggie!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    His appeal is totally lost on me. The presence of the dog does nothing to mitigate that.

  • Imasewsure

    Even without the doggie, I think he looks great in a cute regular guy kind of way. He just looks bad when he dresses up.

  • Amy

    Gah! An Irish setter! The only thing cuter than my adult Irish setter is an Irish setter puppy.

    I couldn’t care less about RR.

  • veronicafish

    This: “Blandness and unearned smugness.”

  • Jaeda Laurez

    He’s a guy who needs a little dirt on his face to fully appreciate the cuteness underneath. When he wears suits, he looks so…”done.” It’s too much. But something like a white tee (or any tee, really), and a pair of jeans, and he shines.

  • calimon

    Those sunglasses are much too small for his mug. But he’s looking quite normal (relaxed and easy), as he should when out in the park with his pooch. Nice ‘n’ easy for my Friday morning 🙂

    • bellafigura1

      Those are ladies’ glasses!

  • Monabel

    “Unearned smugness” – lot of that around…..

  • Valdri8

    Hey, he found Chauncey!

    • KinoEye

      Major points to you for the obscure MM reference! That part always broke my heart 🙁

    • chrissybee

      That made me laugh. Poor Chauncey.

  • Clair Ellis

    Dat ass.

  • Lizzy

    Jeezzzz… being with my dog makes me actually smile.

  • dancho

    I have a educated guess as to why he seems smug. He was (is?) self conscious about his size. He’s a tall guy and used to try very hard not to stick out. I hung out with him many years ago as he was just getting decent work (1997-99) here in LA. He was modest and kind of awkward and shy. As a fellow giant (6’6″ here), it was unsaid but understood that one slouches and keeps a low profile to blend in. And that can be interpreted as aloofness. Mind you, this was before his movie career started and he worked like hell for that rocking body.

  • quiltrx

    He looks so serious and troubled about playing with his dog…

  • GTrain

    He has always bugged me and I could never articulate why but you guys nailed it with “combination of blandness and unearned smugness”.
