Ryan Reynolds Finally Explains That Taylor Swift Photo

One pop culture mystery solved.

Pop culture fans will remember Taylor Swift’s celeb-filled 4th of July bash. There were fireworks, there was a water slide and ― most importantly ― there was an unforgettable couples photo.

In the perfectly posed pic, “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds looks less than thrilled while seated with wife Blake Lively, beside former couple Swift and Tom Hiddleston, and Swift’s friends.

That is not the face of summertime Swiftie joy. 

While the Internet thought Reynolds may or may not have been held hostage at the event by Swift and her squad powers, the “Deadpool” star explained that that’s just his regular resting “dead” face

“That’s a problem I’ve had all my life,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “If I’m not aware a photo is being taken, my natural resting face is one of a man dying. I had no idea somebody was taking a photo. Therefore I was resting comfortably in my persona of a man whose soul is visibly exiting this earth.”

Good to know.
