Ryan Reynolds Swears He Was A Mega-Awkward Teen

“Up until I was like, 18, I looked like a Vietnamese girl. I remember, it took me a while to learn that you could actually talk to girls. I remember during elementary school, I used to accidentally fall on them during volleyball practice. And just a few years later, that’s illegal. That’s straight up inappropriate.”

Ryan Reynolds appeared on “Conan” last week to hype “The Green Lantern” and shared that as a teenager, he was seriously awkward and in no way attractive to the ladyfolk. Sorry, but we’re not buying it, Ryan. We saw you on MTV’s “Fifteen” and know you were still adorable back in the day. [Huffington Post]

Ahhh, but this isn’t the first time Ryan has disparaged his teenage self.

“I was such a goofball. I went through puberty in my early 20s. That’s a big part of the problem. I looked … like sort of a very athletic girl up until I was about 21. My body naturally wants to look like Dick Van Dyke. When I stop training, I turn into a skin-coloured whisper.” [Daily Mail UK]

—Ryan’s response last fall to People naming him the Sexiest Man Alive. Touché, Ryan, touché.

What do you think? Was teenaged Ryan so bad?
