Ryan Reynolds is looking mysterious yet sexy on the June/July cover of Details magazine. Ryan says he won’t discuss his divorce from Scarlett Johansson, and his friend Sandra Bullock also says she’s keeping all of his “dark secrets” safe.
Aside from not knowing what went wrong with his marriage to Scarlett, there is a lot we still don’t know about Ryan.
But his co-stars are happy to try and explain.
“The Hollywood a**hole is becoming a bit of a dinosaur every day, thank God,” Jason Bateman, his co-star in the upcoming The Change-Up, tells Details. “But it’s still not the norm to be as decent as Ryan is. Decent without being a boob. He’s the World’s Sexiest Man and all that sh*t, but he’s still a real guy, not a noodle.”
Sandra also thinks she understands why her friend Ryan is so appealing to audiences — he’s complex.
“It makes you want to watch more of him to figure it out,” she explains. “As his friend, any dark secrets that I may or may not know are forever safe with me. Unless he doesn’t do something I want him to do, like babysitting. When that day comes, I’ll be sure to hold a press conference.”
One dark secret Ryan may have? Details about his divorce.
“I’ll say this: The media was not invited to my marriage, and they’re definitely not invited into the divorce,” he says.
But he did talk about it generally.
“Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain,” he explains, “but you come out of it. I’m not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there’s optimism. How can there not be? I don’t think I want to get married again, but you always reevaluate these things. Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up. I gotta say, I’m a different person than I was six months ago.”
But he’s not ready to date yet.
“I have no interest in dating right now,” he says. “It just seems so kind of alien to me at this point.”
And he does admit to having a dark side.
“You want to see what I’m like when we turn the tape recorder off?” he asks jokingly. “I slit throats, that’s what I do. I only drink panda tears. Do not bring me water. Do not bring me filtered water. I want the tears of a newborn panda, and I will have them — because I’m Ryan Reynolds!”
