Before Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson put on the Deadpool suit, he had to fight off a villain in a different suit... His birthday suit. Those of us who have seen Deadpool (which is pretty much everyone) know that Ryan Reynolds let it all hang out for this one.
During a fight scene where Wade Wilson does battle with Ajax, Wade is completely naked for almost the entire bit. It meant eight hours in the make-up chair for Reynolds getting covered in head-to-toe scarring for the Deadpool look but it didn't mean he wasn't still rocking his birthday suit.
"You just have a little talk with the crew at the beginning of the day," Reynolds tells Ellen DeGeneres while appearing on her midday talk show. "You say, 'Guys, you're gonna see things that you maybe shouldn't see.' I kinda got an idea of what's like to work in the adult film industry. By lunch time, you're just like, 'Oh, Greek salad is good, isn't it?' and you're just totally nude standing there."
Reynolds was willing to do whatever it took to make Deadpool happen and, like Wade Wilson, he's not afraid to joke about it. "I'm not above taking my clothes off for money," he says.
Deadpool is now playing in theaters.
