Ryan Reynolds 'loses confidence' on planes

Jul 21 2013, 11:12pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Ryan Reynolds loses all his confidence on airplanes.

The 'R.I.P.D.' actor - who has previously admitted to his fear of flying - "hates" having to jet across the world for his movie career and becomes extremely nervous in the air.

He said: "I'm a terrible, terrible flier. I lose all my confidence when I'm on a plane. I hate it, hate it so much."

The 36-year-old hunk - who is married to actress Blake Lively - claims a scary skydiving mishap when he was a teenager left him with his debilitating plane phobia, and despite playing a jet pilot in 2011 blockbuster 'The Green Lantern', he has still yet to overcome his fears.

In an interview on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon', he explained: "I'm a little skittish with the heights, but mostly just the airplanes.

"When I was young, 19 years old, I was with friends of mine and we were trying to get our skydiving licence. On my 13th jump - lucky number 13 - my shoot opened; the risers broke and the thing opened kind of vertically, flapping in the wind and not really slowing me down at all. It was just making me spin out of control and almost unconscious. Not fun!

"I remember I was terrified to pull away and to break away and pull my reserve shoot, because in my idiotic 19-year-old mind I was like, 'Then I'll have no more shoots left.' Thankfully, I came to my senses, broke away, and pulled my reserve shoot. You can't steer the reserve shoot because its round, so I landed seven or eight miles away from the actual drop zone and I was sure I was going to land in power lines or something."

Although he survived, Ryan admits the traumatic experience would have been an incredibly unlucky way to die.

He quipped: "What a way to go - you survive a grand malfunction skydiving only to burn to death on some guy's telephone line!"

Celebs Who Have Played The Worst Superheroes Of All Time!

Aug 21 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

Not all superhero films are...well, super. The best ring that came out of Green Lantern was the one that Ryan Reynolds eventually gave his co-star Blake Lively! Other than that, the movie was horrendous. We are so blessed to live in a cinematic era where superhero movies are actually pretty decent! However, not every celeb a good superhero makes! Without further ado, here are some of the worst su ...

Jon Hamm Throws Shade at Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Reynolds in New Interview

Mad Men will soon be a thing of the past and series star Jon Hamm is already looking to the future. While his latest feature, Million Dollar Arm, was a minor box office failure, Hamm is still hoping to break free from the role that made him famous and become a bankable big screen star. He opened up about his career ambitions in the new issue of GQ, and based on some of the subtle disses he slipped into the interview, it seems Hamm thinks the best way ...

Blake Lively Covers Marie Claire

Aug 13 2014 2:02pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Of all the things one might have expected Blake Lively to do after playing New York City's hottest rich teenager on Gossip Girl, "make philanthropy cool" wouldn't exactly be high on the list. Marry the Green Lantern (aka Ryan Reynolds) in a top-secret ceremony outside Charleston, South Carolina, complete with a couture Marchesa ballgown and a glitter-dipped bouquet? Sure. Take time off to buy and decorate a count ...

Blake Lively covers Marie Claire: ‘If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would’

Aug 13 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I wasn’t surprised to see Blake Lively on the September cover of Marie Claire, even given the fact that she literally has NO film or TV project to promote. She managed to get a Vogue cover even though she was only promoting Preserve (her shopping site). So, obviously, she got another major fashion cover. And it’s terrible. The cover is bad – her head is at such an awkward angle – but the interior sh ...
