Helen Mirren's Essay About Ryan Reynolds For Time 100 List

Helen Mirren's Essay About Ryan Reynolds Will Make Your Body Feel Things

If you have ever doubted the unflinching charm of Ryan Reynolds (and if you have, who are you and get out of here), Helen Mirren is here to put your mind at ease. Time magazine revealed its list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2017 on Thursday, and the Deadpool 2 actor holds a very well-deserved spot. To celebrate all of his recent accomplishments, his Woman in Gold costar Helen Mirren wrote an essay that details Ryan's real-life loveliness. "Can the name be real? It is such a perfect movie-star name, like something that could be on a '40s marquee," she wrote. "How fitting, then, that Ryan Reynolds has the same loose-limbed charm as Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. He's the Everyman, but somehow with more of everything: wit, elegance, looks and general hunkiness."

She went on to call the actor "committed and generous, especially to women," saying, "He likes them in the most simple, direct, unadorned way: for their humanity. (How very appropriate that he is the father of two girls.) P.S. The name is real, like everything else about Ryan." We'd have to agree, Helen.
