As if we needed more reasons to love Ryan Reynolds, right? Ryan Reynolds took to his Facebook page to honor the late Connor McGrath, who Reynolds met at Edmonton hospital when McGrath was still battling cancer. The two enjoyed an advanced screening of Deadpool together. McGrath has since passed away, and Reynolds honors him in a truly moving way. RIP Connor.

Nothing short of awesome high quality entertainment magic happens when these two dudes sit down to take interviews together. With Reynolds' electric and effortlessly sharp wit, and Gyllenhaal's uncanny ability to chime in and build off jokes at just the right times; it's pretty much an inescapable fact that we need way more of these little skits in our lives. Or these guys just gotta start doing more movies with each other!

Would expect nothing less from Reynolds. Here's the 'award letter'!



And can we take it back to that phenomenal 'interview' he staged for GQ as Man of the Year recently as well?



Whatta guy. We love you, Ryan, and sincerely wish you the best on your journey to bring home Deadpool's righteous and well-deserved Oscar.

Ryan Reynolds' dear friend, 13-year-old Connor McGrath just passed away after battling cancer for multiple years. The following was posted by Reynolds on his Facebook page, following McGrath's passing:

For three straight years, my friend, Connor McGrath drop-kicked cancer... Not sure how... Maybe the cancer cheated... But the fight came to an end two nights ago.

In my wildest dreams, I can't imagine how hard this is for his parents Kim and Gerald - along with his extended family in Newfoundland.

Connor was 13. But this kid... He was smart. He was funny. And not just funny 'for a kid' - or funny 'for a person battling something awful'. He was unqualified funny. He had that... thing.

That thing you see in great performers or comedy writers. A running commentary/observational skill people are just lucky to be born with.

He went way too early and it's impossible to reconcile. Connor was a great friend, a great son, and a light to the people lucky enough to know him. While repeatedly punching cancer in the balls, he made everyone laugh. Including the entire staff who cared for him at Edmonton's Stollery Children's Hospital.

It was the Make-A-Wish Foundation that brought us together. I can't thank them enough. Seriously. Thank you. Because of his wish, Connor was the first person to see Deadpool. I traveled up to Edmonton, Alberta to surprise him with a rough cut of the film. There were still huge sections with wires we hadn't yet painted out, jokes which weren't working (and still aren't) and green screens. Connor didn't seem to mind. And I'd never felt luckier to get to be Wade Wilson.

***Before you jump down my throat for showing a 13 year old an R-Rated film, please know this kid knew more swear words than a British chef.

I went back to Edmonton 6 weeks later and I wish I could say things were looking up. After my visit, I didn't know if I was saying goodbye or see ya later. Sitting here now, I realize it was both.

I'm grateful I got to orbit Connor's world for a brief time. Grateful for the pages and pages of hilarious texts between us. Grateful to his parents for allowing Connor to spend time with a foul-mouthed child in the body of a 39 year old.

I called Connor, "Bubba". And he called me "Bubba2". We met because he loved Deadpool. In a certain sense he WAS Deadpool. Or, at least everything Deadpool aspires to be; balancing pain, fearlessness, love and a filthy (filthy!) sense of humor in one body. I wish he could've stuck around a lot longer.

If you'd like to donate to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, I can pretty much guarantee, your money's going to a damn good place. These people do not suck. They are heroic. Full stop. http://makeawishna.ca/wishes/donate

My deepest condolences and thanks to Kim, Gerald and the entire clan McGrath -- who loved this little boy so very well. And thankfully, Connor knew it.

See ya down the road, Bubba.

Ryan Reynolds is not messing around with his role as Deadpool, on and off the screen. Blake Lively's been nothing if not a great pillar of support for her husband as he's pranced around enjoying the 12 Days of Deadpool, and also insisted on sporting his costume for Mother's Day and Thanksgiving.

Lively pulled through with this custom-made, wool rendition of Deadpool riding a unicorn while brandishing a chimichanga for one kicka** holiday gift. Big boy's gotta' eat right?

Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds have been busy absolutely destroying the press tour for Life, by providing an endless procession of hilariously candid bromance-fueled interviews. The dudes cannot be stopped, and the chemistry between the two is next level. As a fan of both these guys and their work, I'm just so damn happy Hollywood finally brought 'em together; because I think we're witnessing the prelude to an epic talk show, with them as our hosts. Oh please, please, let it happen.

Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!
