ONE HOT BODYGUARD
Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, 40, plays the world’s top bodyguard tasked with getting a notorious hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) safely to court in the action/comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, in theaters Aug. 18. Here are five facts about the Canadian-born actor. One of his brothers is a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. Reynolds developed a fear of flying when, while skydiving, his parachute didn’t open and he needed to use his reserve chute. He failed his high school drama class. On his first night in Hollywood, someone stole his Jeep. He found it the next day missing its doors. He met wife-to-be Blake Lively while filming Green Lantern (2011), but they didn’t date until about a year later when both were single.
