Ryan Reynolds tells Jimmy Fallon how to break Dwayne Johnson: 'Just parrot his lines back at him'
Ryan Reynolds was his usual funny self on the May 5 episode of 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'.
Reminiscing his camaraderie with good friend Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson while shooting their upcoming film 'Red Notice', he shared: "We made about one or two days past the halfway point mark. We would have finished the movie if we hadn't spent 90% of our time di***ng away laughing".
Reynolds added that the two of them have been friends for over 15 years and they spend most of their time together making each other laugh. He also joked that it "isn't a responsible thing to do with Netflix and their money" but still makes for a good movie "once you get Take 28 down the can."
The actor continued to make Jimmy laugh when confessing that "it's like a compound problem now. The pressure's on to not laugh. I seriously hurt myself, like I'll Charlie Horse myself as tight as I possibly can. A tiny stab wound to a non-vital organ area to keep it together."
He further gushed about his friend "The Rock" mentioning that one of the reasons they've been long-time friends because Dwayne can laugh at himself. Reynolds revealed that something small as parroting back his lines could make him laugh.
Fallon recalled that once Dwayne starts laughing, he needs an hour or so to calm down, He further asked Reynolds what is Dwayne's breaking point and what makes him laugh the most.
"You kind of parrot it with the thing he's doing in the movie like if his line is Special agent John Heart from the FBI and if you say it just 27% faster with a swearword like Special agent John Heart from the FBI, moth******er he's gone. He leaves the room," replied Reynolds.
"He plays a totally normal size FBI agent and I play a con artist who happens to be paid in extra lighting. There is Gal Gadot who plays a mysterious figure and I don't want to give away much," added Reynolds about their roles in the film.
Dishing on details about life in these times, he mentioned, "I'm quarantined with my family with Blake and three daughters and my mother-in-law as well. While I love the people who I am quarantined with, it was a real toss-up between my Hollywood family and my family in Denmark," joked Reynolds.
He also mentioned that the lockdown "sets a dangerous precedent" for him and he "worries" that years later his kids will look back and think about how he used to be "a present dad".
