We all have our guilty pleasure movies and things that we like even though we know they aren’t that good. That doesn’t mean anything terrible personal taste but more that there are certain movies that just hit a sweet spot. It turns out that one of those movies for Deadpool 2 star Josh Brolin told Entertainment Weekly that the romantic comedy The Proposal left Brolin with a bit of a crush on co-star Ryan Reynolds.
“I was a secret fan of The Proposal, having watched it several times by myself,” says Brolin, 50, who’s currently on screen as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. “I told Ryan. I was like, ‘I don’t know why this is, and I don’t know what this means psychologically, behaviorally, emotionally, but I have kind of a crush on you.’”
Reynolds doesn’t believe a word of it despite the fact that Brolin has mentioned it many times before.
“He’s mentioned it many times, which is weird to me because he’s so tough,” he says. “I would just never imagine that. Like, he pretends he’s, like, all sort of New Agey sometimes and all this stuff, but deep down inside I just think his heart is made of some, like, jagged chunk of Yosemite granite. I don’t buy that underneath all this textured skin is a sweet little angel that loves romantic comedies. I don’t buy it. Not for a second.”
It wouldn’t be the first time a physically imposing human was actually a giant softie but Brolin does seem like the type who would tell Reynolds this just to mess with him.
