Cover Boy: Ryan Reynolds for Entertainment Weekly
Darlings, if you’re in the midst of, or about to have your lunch, may we suggest the following? If you’re watching your figure, the resultant nausea should do nicely in helping you skip a meal.
Entertainment Weekly takes the phrase “celebrity tongue bath” to a whole new level:
“In this week’s cover story, “Why I’m Obsessed with Ryan Reynolds, by Ryan Reynolds,” the 34-year-old star of Green Lantern plumbs the depths of Ryan Reynolds’ soul. He writes about the actor’s boyhood in Canada (“He spent a great deal of time with his older brothers and, in turn, his brothers were very close to him. Usually within striking distance”). He remembers his first crush (her name was Finona Gorchinsky and she broke Reynolds’s heart — and nearly his neck — during a school bus ride in the eighth grade). And he celebrates his unwavering commitment to environmental issues (“But Reynolds is also careful not to get too self-righteous, and is not one of those finger-wagging celebrities telling you how to live your life. He prefers to put the word out quietly, through the exciting mediums of interpretive dance and Japanese hand fans”).
We don’t usually allow actors to write their own profiles, but hey, what can we say. We’re a little obsessed with Ryan Reynolds, too.”
Oh sure, tongue in cheek, sense of humor, yaddayaddayadda. But come ON:
Entertainment Weekly is living up to its abbreviation with this one.
