Helen Mirren Just Wrote Something About Ryan Reynolds That Made Us Blush

MOST POPULAR

Helen Mirren just revealed she's a member of the Ryan Reynolds 🔥🔥🔥 Club. For the annual Time 100 issue, the Oscar-winning actress wrote a paean to her former Woman in Gold co-star, who was honored for his Deadpool role and, perhaps, as Mirren called it, "general hunkiness."

To be honest, we needed a cold shower after reading Mirren's glowing homage. It began with what we can only call a purring reflection on his name. His name, people.

Can the name be real? It is such a perfect movie-star name, like something that could be on a '40s marquee.

The actress went on to commend Reynolds—or, as she calls him, "Ryan" (same)—for his theatrical talents and his kindness:

Ryan is also rumpled, kind, committed and generous, especially to women....He is open and generous, but never inappropriate. I suspect this is part of what makes him such an appealing performer.

Exsqueeze me?????????

But the part that really made us blush was the final lines, in which Mirren revealed that even Hollywood sirens get a little flustered around certain leading men:

I loved Deadpool. But I also miss spending time with the actor who played him—his warm, intelligent, inquisitive brown eyes, his readiness to laugh ... sigh.

Sigh, indeed.

At least we can share our jealousy with Reynolds' wife, Blake Lively:
