ALICE WASLEY

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE -

WRITER

We called on New York-based Wasley to charm the su­per­hero pants off Mr Ryan Reynolds. She did. Turn to p40 to see the re­sults.

SO, HOW WAS MR REYNOLDS?

He was the an­tic­i­pated amount of hand­some, so, quite hand­some. On top of that, he was seem­ingly gen­uine, charm­ing and quick to take the piss out of him­self. I say seem­ingly be­cause, well, ac­tors are ac­tors. But, even if he is truly a dick deep down, at least he took the time to pre­tend oth­er­wise.

WHAT TOOK YOU BY SUR­PRISE?

He swore freely and with vigour.

OTHER GUYS YOU’VE IN­TER­VIEWED/CRUSHED ON?

Ryan Gosling as I’m hu­man, and not im­mune to his sweet, soul­ful Gosling­ness. And I found Rus­sell Brand dis­turbingly at­trac­tive.

REALLY? MOV­ING ON. HOW EX­TEN­SIVE IS YOUR PREP?

Gen­er­ally, I watch or read what­ever they’re spruik­ing and read pre­vi­ous in­ter­views. I definitely do some so­cial me­dia stalk­ing. You never know what lit­tle nugget might be buried in there.

DO YOU GET NER­VOUS BE­FORE TALK­ING TO CELEBS?

Only if I know I have to bring up some­thing sen­si­tive that they’re not go­ing to want to talk about. But I’m not do­ing my job if I don’t ask the ques­tion.

AD­VICE FOR BUD­DING JOUR­NAL­ISTS?

Say yes when some­one asks you to do some­thing. Then fig­ure out how to do it.
