Ryan Reynolds @ Santa Barbara Film Festival
A clean-shaven Ryan Reynolds gives a great big ol’ man-hug to director/writer Adam Brooks at the Santa Barbara Film Festival premiere of Definitely, Maybe held on Thursday at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Ryan looks so boyish-looking without facial hair! He looks more Berg from Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place than Hannibal King from Blade: Trinity.
Definitely, Maybe is about political consultant Will Hayes, who tries to explain his impending divorce and past relationships to his 11-year-old daughter Maya (Abigail Breslin). The previous relationships include hook-ups with Rachel Weisz, Isla Fisher and Elizabeth Banks.
Ryan recently told Britain’s Radio One a story about her young costar: “I took Abigail out for the day to see if we got on or not. She wanted to go to the museum of Natural History in New York and look at the turtles. I felt like I was 12 when I walked in and 30 when I left. We were there forever. Then she dragged me to a toy store. I was longing for the sweet release of death by the third hour of this. I thought, ‘I will just buy the kid whatever she wants.’ She said, ‘I will take that stuffed animal.’ I took it and walked to the till and gave the guy my credit card. As we were walking out I checked my receipt and it was $300 – for a stuffed animal! “I couldn’t believe it. I said to Abigail, ‘This was a $300 giraffe. Did you realize that? You could buy a real one for less!’ She said, ‘Oh wow!’ Then her mother came up and that is when I fell in love with her. “She told her mom, ‘Ryan bought me a $300 stuffed toy – what an idiot!’ From that moment on I was helplessly in love with this little girl.”
