It doesn't take much to win Ryan Reynolds' undying love. On the red carpet for Deadpool 2, the actor was interviewed by IGN reporter Max Scoville, who showed him a book report on Deadpool that Scoville wrote when he was in the fifth grade.
Reynolds was blown away and immediately proposed marriage:
This is amazing. Will you marry me?
Scoville was equally taken with Reynolds, saying:
No, your movies are amazing. You did the thing I wanted to see since I was 10.
Reynolds is already married to Blake Lively and Scoville is spoken for, so it seems unlikely the two will ever commit to holy matrimony. Reynolds did throw out the suggestion that they could some day move to a state where it would be legal.
Scoville took to Twitter to soften his hard no to the proposal:
Dear @VancityReynolds, sorry I rejected the proposal. I should've given a definite maybe or said we should be just friends. At least I didn't keep you waiting or say anything crude, but ANYTHING would've been better than "I'm taken."— Max Scoville (@MaxScoville) May 17, 2018
...Now, will you please grade my book report? pic.twitter.com/wpnNotebP0
And people were disappointed:
"IM TAKEN"?!?! You are better than that Max...I have been following you since day 1 of The Comedy Button and I was so excited that Deadpool proposed to you...and then you went and broke this little Hispanic heart...Next time kiss the man like a gentleman!— The Brick Traveler (@SoundsLikeAwsum) May 17, 2018
It happens to the best of us.
At first I was disappointed. But then I realized how spontaneous his proposal was and I would’ve froze up if I was in your shoes. Stay awesome, Max!— Rick (@rickyrice87) May 17, 2018
Some felt the proposal could have been more genuine:
If he really meant it, he woulda proposed whilst in costume— Matt Trovato (@Spleenzorio) May 18, 2018
Who knows? Maybe there is still a way it can work out for these two...
I'm sure your Fiance wouldn't mind if you got married to Ryan.— MyNameIsAlecc (@MyNameIsAlecc) May 18, 2018
