RYAN REYNOLDS Takes A Jab At 'Joker' After Beating 'Deadpool' At Box Office
It's official: Joker is now the highest grossing R-rated film of all time!
The origin flick of the one and only Clown Prince of Crime is still enjoying its place as the number one film in the world with 849.1 million dollars and counting as it approaches the end of its theatrical run. The Joaquin Phoenix starrer officially dethroned Deadpool to become the undisputed king of R-rated flicks. Marvel and Fox's R-rated flick earned a whopping 783 million dollars at the box office in 2016..
Now, Ryan Reynolds is cheering on the DC film but not without taking a jab of his own. But all in the spirit of fun and staying in character as the fourth wall-breaking outlaw, of course.
#Repost @robliefeld ・・・ So, when I first met Mr. Ryan Reynolds, my heart skipped a beat. As he leaned down to hug me, I was struck by just how damn tall he was and I mumbled in disbelief, "You're...so...damn tall". As he released me from his grasp, He responded with " I am. So. Damn. Tall..." in that pitch-perfect cadence that only Ryan Reynolds can deliver. My recessive gay genes all lit up like a house on fire over his ridiculous handsomeness, which as you all know, is second to none. Like so many of you I was a huge fan of Ryan long before he adopted Deadpool as his own personal Jesus. What he did for the character and the smiles and the excitement he created for all of us is so ridiculously wonderful. Deadpool went from popular comic anti-hero to global blockbuster icon as a result of his will to keep the dream alive! I'm beyond thrilled whenever he rocks that black and red leather ensemble. Thank you for your many talents, thank you for fighting for your vision, thank you for never giving up on Mr. Pool. Congrats on being named GQ's Man of the Year @vancityreynolds what a spectacular year!! No one deserves it more! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #deadpool #vancityreynolds
In a post on his social media handles, Ryan hilariously congratulated the success of #JokerMovie: "R-Rated box office congratulatory posts aren’t like the ones you’re used to..."
