The movie star era is no more and there are many reasons
We see stars across pop culture scenes from night shows to social media platforms.
It no longer exists Special To see or hear from Ben Affleck or Viola Davis. We have heard their views many times before on our laptops, smartphones and streaming platforms. In addition, many celebrities actively insulted the audience and their lifestyle.
For example, celebrities oppose Trump voters or insult those who believe abortion is murder. Some celebrities can not get through the press without sharing divisive ideas about race, religion or most of politics.
Need an example? George Clooney advertises “Ticket to Paradise”, suggesting to HBO host Max Chris Wallace that Republicans are Threats to democracy.
And then there’s Ryan Reynolds.
The 46-year-old “Deadpool” star offers a different approach to stardom. He is always involved on social media. He gives pleasure to a sick child with his hospitalization and is generous with the mistakes that have given him his finances.
Reynolds, along with wife / actor Blake Lively, paid a fortune for Water First Education & Training IncA group that provides clean water to disadvantaged communities and they have also written a large letter to help. Ukrainian refugees.
His on-screen and off-screen images remain remarkably consistent over time. He was a clever hero in “Deadpool” and he modified that comic character for a rare large-scale comedy that really made us scream “Free Guy” in 2021.
In fact, when the stars are desperate to escape their image – think Jim Carrey abandons the comedy for a more interesting role – Reynolds clings to his comedian. Even his heroic character in “The Adam Project” saved some screening time for a joke in the great Ryan Reynolds tradition.
The Canadian actor is free without a doubt. He encouraged incumbent Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader and shared the usual “falling sky” fear to President Donald Trump.
Although he does not demean those views in front of us. He shares it now and then, but he is more involved in his two tasks. Large-scale film actor and PR guru.
The latter is his most interesting element. While some celebrities promote their films with a certain level of success, Reynolds takes it to the next level.
The latest example? He leaked the news that Hugh Jackman is leaving the hero’s retirement to play Wolverine again.
Reynolds broke on Twitter an Easter egg for fans of his previous appearance as Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” “Hard to keep my mouth shut about this.”
The accompanying promotional video shows Reynolds playing himself, wondering how to bring old MCUs into “Deadpool.” We watch the actor pour wine into his cup of coffee, walk through the woods and look at the typewriter waiting for creative inspiration.
“I have something. Here’s completely empty ” He broke up a second time before he asked Jackman to join the project.
Cue Whitney Houston’s romantic song “I will always love you”. And the scene.
The video was popular for good reason, receiving 15 million views on YouTube alone. Suddenly, movie fans can’t wait to see Reynolds and Jackman together again for “Deadpool 3”.
That’s a talent level market, and few stars do it like Reynolds. And it is not his first time accepting that approach. He diligently advertises his films with humor and heart, dirty hands with fun, clean marketing.
He cut several “Deadpool” shorts to promote the film and the general monopoly, including cursing “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels over the star’s appearance on the show.
Another feature is that David Beckham, whom Deadpool aired in 2016, clashed with Reynolds in a manner to promote the first episode.
The actor’s Maximum Effort marketing company, which he co-founded, now produces these shorts, and his personal touch is every finished product. Yes, the company name comes from the quip mentioned in the 2016 “Deadpool” feature.
Actor Find out how much he loves his market. With Forbes magazine earlier this year and how his superhero brand gave him a “crash episode” on the subject.
“Deadpool taught me that necessity is the mother of creativity. Deadpool, an exclusive franchise, has never had the kind of budget and finances to work with a larger comic book. The two biggest enemies of innovation are too much time and too much money. “I learned the value of characters on stage through Deadpool.”
Need one more example of Reynolds’s behavior?
TJ Miller, his 2016 co-star of “Deadpool,” felt that Reynolds did not like him when filming their scene together for the 2018 film. That short confession, filmed on the podcast “The Adam Carolla Show”, revealed a set disagreement that felt bad for Miller.
The revelation quickly caused a stir on social media.
Reynolds soon received Miller’s complaint. Some stars may ignore this. Others may have waged war on Miller, a comedian with a neck. Checked past off-screen. Or Reynolds could act as a victim or just throw Miller, a comedian with a personal past.
Reynolds, on the other hand, is obvious. Contact Miller directlyAnd the two of them settled the old differences between them.
“It’s fine. He emailed me the next day… It’s a misunderstanding, so I emailed him back and now it’s fine.”
Reynolds did not make public about the reconciliation. He managed it behind the scenes like a gentleman.
Reynolds has little in common with many modern celebrities and thanks to that.
