Ryan Reynolds: Green Lantern Costume Was Made With Most Aggravating Substance on Earth!
Ryan Reynolds holds up a special JustJared.com coaster during the Green Lantern panel discussion at Comic-Con 2010 held at California’s San Diego Convention Center on Saturday (July 24).
The 33-year-old actor shared a bit about his skin-tight costume: “I wear a motion capture suit because it’s actually not seen on camera. They managed to find a material that — most would agree — is the most aggravating substance on Earth. We’re shooting in Louisiana, which is pretty close to the sun in terms of the hottest place you can find anywhere around. It’s been a little bit difficult running around in a unitard in the New Orleans high summer heat.”
As for training for the intense action sequences, Ryan shared, “You’re not training on an aesthetic level. You’re training for more of a functional ability, so you want to be able to stay out of the hospital for as long as you possibly can during the shoot, but it is a [director] Martin Campbell movie, so you’re bound to be there once or twice. He pushes you pretty hard and because of that I think that’s why the action in the film is so visceral and so real.”
