Ryan Reynolds‘ character in his new film, The Change-Up, is an out-of-work actor who is desperate for a job, so he starts to work in lorno films (light porn). But it wasn’t as much fun for Ryan to play that part as he thought it would be.
The Change-Up stars Ryan and Jason Bateman stopped by the Today show this morning to sit down with Matt Lauer and discuss their new film.
Fans might think Ryan’s role of playing a lorno star would be a dream come true, but the actor says it was actually tough to shoot.
“Ya know, Matt, no. I had higher expectations for myself early on in life,” Ryan said when asked if the scene was a dream come true. “That was a tough scene to shoot, I must say. It was the one day I invited my family to set because I don’t look at the scheduling of events. I swear to you I did. Yes, I did.”
“That is not right,” Jason said shaking his head. “That is not right.”
“The bulb is dim,” Ryan said. “They were there, and they watched it. And I watched my mother actually pass away.”
