Soon after the picture went viral, people started pointing out the expression of extreme discomfort on Reynolds’ face.

About 6 months after the picture was taken, Ryan has explained the expression.


In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he explained that it was simply just how his face was. In fact, he wasn’t uncomfortable at all.


“No, that’s a problem I’ve had all my life. 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,” he said.

As it turns out, this was just another incident of social media over-analyzing the minor aspects of a celebrity’s life.
