Quick-Witted Ryan Reynolds Talks Working With Sir Ben Kingsley in "Self/less," Shares Favorite Show Biz Moment, Failing HS Drama Class + Plays Pick Your Poison & Calls DB a Dick!

Actor, husband to Blake Lively and apparent quick-witted comedian Ryan Reynolds is releasing a big movie titled “Self/less” alongside Sir Ben Kingsley this Friday (July 10).

The Canada native joins Sway in the Morning to leave the crew in stitches while speaking on his work in “Self/less,” his mindset while filming, some wonderful accomplishments as well as embarrassing moments including failing his High School drama class.

While working with Sir Ben Kingsley was a great honor, it wasn’t Reynolds first run in with royalty as he recalls sharing nerves with Dame Helen Mirren on the first day of shooting a film.

It’s obvious that every actor does things differently, Reynolds breaks down some different types of personalities while discussing his mindset on set and how he deals with not having chemistry with co-stars.

To end things off in hilarious fashion Sway brings in DB to play Pick Your Poison with Ryan and he recalls his fear of flying stemming from a near-fatal skydiving mishap, failing HS drama class and having a jeep with no doors.

Things kick off as Ryan calls DB a dick for bringing up some sore subjects, it’s all in good fun though!  Check out the exclusive interview below and make sure to catch “Self/less” in theaters on July 10.
