Ryan Reynolds – FULL TRANSCRIPT:

Dana Han-Klein

Hi, everyone, welcome to Talks at Google today, it is my pleasure to welcome Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool, right?

Ryan Reynolds

Thank you. Thank you very much. Very nice to be here.

Dana Han-Klein

Thanks for joining us.

Ryan Reynolds

Yeah, I feel like I’m rubbing shoulders with real power here at Google. Love it.

Dana Han-Klein

Yes. Ryan, how excited are you for people to see this movie?

Ryan Reynolds

I’m I could not be more excited. Actually, I’m eleven years excited. I… when I talk about it, I always just grateful I’m wearing an adult diaper. The… this movie has been just the biggest pain in the ass to get made, and somehow someway the movie gods looked down on us and made that happen through a number of illegal transactions, not the least of which being our test footage leaking onto the internet accidentally. About two years ago, and that’s what gave us the green light. So I’m thrilled to talk about Deadpool movie because I never thought Deadpool would actually be would exist.

It’s been an eleven-year thing, and it’s the worst relationship we’ve ever been in. But we’re happily married now and we’re expecting.

Dana Han-Klein

Congratulations.

Ryan Reynolds

Yeah, thank you. Thank you.

Dana Han-Klein

Would it be fair to say the internet helped make this movie happen?

Ryan Reynolds

No, it would be. It would be an absolute fact to say that the internet… the internet is why I’m sitting here talking to you. Quite literally, it was the fans overwhelmed 20TH Century Fox Studios with hate mail. I’m sure other illegal substances filled in sorts of all sorts of containers.

They were… they were vicious and they… they were so overwhelmed Fox with feedback and positive feedback about a Deadpool movie that, that yeah. Here we are with a relatively short order. They were…. they were basically said ‘Go make your movie and leave us alone.’ Because we were sending emails.

We sent emails to the heads of the studio that you would never send to the head of a major film studio. They were just like, just borderline illegal. So, yeah, I think they were just happy to say, here’s the green light now, please leave us alone.

Dana Han-Klein

When were you first introduced to the character of Deadpool?

Ryan Reynolds

I was on a set… I was on the movie Blade Trinity, which I hope… I hope most of you have not seen it. But now, there’s a fun part in that movie, but it’s it was a movie where I got to have a lot of fun.

I got to do the movie with my friends. It was certainly the movie was fraught with a lot of a number of different frustrations that sometimes big movies can have. But I played a character in that movie that I guess resembles Wade Wilson in Deadpool, and I love rival executive at another studios that I saw a

little piece of Blade and you know, your Wade Wilson, your Deadpool. And I didn’t know at the time this is in 2004. I didn’t know who Deadpool was. And he said, Trust me, if they ever make a movie about Deadpool, you’re the only guy that can play Deadpool.

So he sent me over all these comics, and I’m not a big comic book guy, but I really gravitated toward Deadpool. I fell in love with Deadpool. The first issue…  opened up… I’m not making this up.

I was on the panel like in the comic. It said Deadpool was saying… Somebody asked him what he looks like. He says I look like a cross between Ryan Reynolds and a Shar-Pei. So I just kept reading them all, and I was just so and I felt so in love with this character.

He was like, Metta. He breaks the fourth wall, addresses the audience. He knows he’s in a comic book. I mean, you know, in the film Deadpool, Deadpool makes fun of Ryan Reynolds, and I love that. I love that he gets to do that.

It’s a… it’s a… it’s a kind of groundbreaking, genre-bending property, and the fact that a studio let us make it, not just let us make it, but let us make it as rated R movie was just, I mean, crazy.

I couldn’t believe it. So…
