SPOILER ALERT: The following article contains spoilers for “Deadpool,” in theaters now.
During an appearance on “Ellen,” “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds revisited one of the more infamous scenes from the current box-office topping movie. Namely, his naked fight scene with co-star Ed Skrein.
“You have a little talk with the crew at the beginning of the day; you just say, ‘You guys, you’re going to see things that you shouldn’t see.’ And you just kind of go for it,” Reynolds told Degeneres of working in the nude. “You just lose that sort of filter, there. I’m not above taking my clothes off for money — that’s the bottom line.”
In an earlier interview, Reynolds said he had to endure “eight hours of prosthetic makeup in places that no man needs to be there with a paintbrush” in order to prepare for the scene.
Directed by Tim Miller and starring Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and more, “Deadpool” is in theaters now.
