Nothing like a dumb acceptance speech to joke about your sex life with your absentee spouse, no?
At least, that’s what Ryan Reynolds thought. The dude won the 2016 MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance Saturday for Deadpool, which I guess was okay but I can’t imagine something I’m less interested in, so, oh well. Along with accepting his award, the actor decided now’s a good time to joke about his and wife Blake Lively‘s sex life. Perfect time, Ryan. THAT certainly caught my interest. Ryan for the win!
Salt-N-Pepa presented him with the honor and gave a surprise performance of their 1994 hit “Shoop,” one of his character Wade Wilson’s favorite songs. Cute, MTV! Ryan said:
“I’m really glad Amy Schumer didn’t win, that would be really weird with those dances,” Reynolds told the audience. “I have been trying to get Deadpool made for over a decade and I failed and it’s you the fans that got this made. The reason I’m standing up here is because of you guys, and we had blast working on this movie, but it wasn’t all unicorns and cocaine.”
“I’d like to thank Twentieth Century Fox, the Deadpool team, the entire crew up in Vancouver,” he continued. “I want to thank my wife—everything I do is to make her laugh, especially the sex. Thank you.”
Lively didn’t make it out, unfortunately, so I have no uncomfortable reaction shots to share with you.
