Ryan Reynolds is the new GQ cover man!

Ryan ReynoldsSomething I never get tired of seeing: Ryan Reynolds on the cover of a magazine.
The new GQ describes him this way: Funny. Charming. Ripped. (Even his abs have abs.) As likable as a guy that handsome can be. But while everyone was taking him for granted as a bright spot in mediocre comedies or puzzling over his stealth marriage to the world’s most desirable woman (Scarlett Johansson), Ryan Reynolds was busy making himself a movie star.
Ryan stars as a man buried alive in his new film Buried, and is now making the superhero film Green Lantern.
You learn many interesting things in the article like how Ryan spent the summer in Amsterdam between seasons of his ABC sitcom Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place and how a body double was needed for the poster of his cult fave comedy Van Wilder because Ryan was not buff enough!
That’s certainly not the case now as Ryan has one of the hottest bods in all of movies.

Blade: Trinity gave him the body. He worked out for six months beforehand. “It was like a project. I just did everything they told me to.”

Right now he has that body again. ­Reynolds is at pains to point out that this isn’t his natural, or permanent, way of being, just something he is currently doing for the third time, for Green Lantern, after Blade: Trinity and The Proposal.

“I have a discipline that has served me very well in my career and in my personal life,” he says, “and that’s gotten stronger as I’ve gotten older. I’ve always felt if I don’t just have a natural knack for it, I will just outdiscipline the competition if I have to—work harder than anybody else.”
He also says marriage to Scarlett is “the best part” of his life even if he doesn’t talk about the marriage publicly: ”

I’m a little more guarded, I think. I’m a little bit more wary of having my relationship turning into a soap opera. I’ve just unilaterally not addressed it. That’s kind of been the fail-safe for me.”
