Ryan Reynolds, star of the upcoming “The Proposal” opposite Sandra Bullock, is considered one of the best looking men in the industry and has often been referred to as a man who would probably once reach Brad Pitt’s level of hotness. He for one has never taken this aspect of his life too seriously, as he reveals once more in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Fans must know since before “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” dropped that Ryan Reynolds has an amazingly fit body, so they probably shouldn’t be too surprised to see the actor donning little besides a swimsuit and a water gun or a snorkel on the cover of the magazine. Of course, there is also the attached photo, of Reynolds being goofy with a mini water gun while also looking incredibly stylish in a formal shirt and undone necktie. However, it has been pointed out, the best part of the mag is the interview.

Since the topic of his good looks must come up pretty often, EW gets this question out of the way right from the start. Ryan Reynolds never has and never will feel like he really is some unattainable standard of male beauty as the media makes him, since he’s just a regular guy who, incidentally, also happens to look good. “If you take any of that seriously, you need to be euthanized, ASAP. There are moments when you can use that to your advantage. But it’s really embarrassing. I think I fear more than anything just sounding like a complete [expletive] when I have to answer that question.” Reynolds says of having to always take compliments on his good looks.

When asked about celebrity culture and to where it has gotten, Ryan shows one needs humor when dealing with it. “I find that whole situation [with Jon and Kate Gosselin] to be horrible and awful. Every time I see the headlines, I begin an inner hurricane of throwing up. I wanna see Jon & Kate Plus Eight, the Musical. Jon versus Kate. I wanna see four kids on one side, and four kids on the other, snapping menacingly to music as they walk toward one another.” the actor jokes.

Speaking of acting, Reynolds reveals that this is what he has always wanted to do. A strong believer in the saying that you never really finish a scene or a movie but abandon it after a couple of tries, the star says it’s knowing he can always do better that makes him come back for more. This is also why he tries movie roles that are as varied as possible, moving to and fro action films and romantic comedies, such as is the case with “The Proposal,” which opens in US theaters this Friday, June 19.
