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.”
