How to Turn Ryan Reynolds Scarlett

Ryan Reynolds plays Deadpool in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." He spoke to Ramin Setoodeh.

Have you seen "Wolverine"?
I have not. I don't think anyone on this Earth has seen it, except for the director and a handful of studio types.

And the million people who saw the bootlegged version online.
That was not the finished product. That was a travesty.

Is Hugh Jackman the only mutant with a nude scene?
It's a prerequisite—you have to show off your mutant berries is what they told us. No. I think Hugh is probably the only nudie. I don't remember taking my pants off. I do have a faulty memory, though.

What's next for you?
I'm faced with a couple months to myself. I have to reinvent that part of my life, I've been working for 15 months straight. My first plan is to go on a motorcycle trip in the summer. To go to a place called the Top of the World Highway in northern Canada.

By yourself?
No. I'm going with my brother.

Where do you stay?
That's kind of the fun. You either camp or stay in a lodge.

Does the missus ride?
No. Not that I'm aware of.

She's not going to come?
Uh ... I, I, I, I, don't know. We'll see. I'm not sure. What's your next question?

Sorry, I know you don't like talking about your personal life.
No. I don't mind talking about my personal life. I just don't get into great detail about my relationship, that's all.

But you're married now [to Scarlett Johansson]. Correct?
Yes. I am.

How's everything going?
Fantastic.

Your next movie is called "The Proposal," so I imagine people will ask how you proposed.
I'm sure.

Do you want to get it over with?
No. I'm not quite ready for it. I have to come up with the solid party line.

I saw video on TMZ of you being chased on your motorcycle.
Most of those guys on TMZ are idiots. Actually, I wouldn't call them idiots, because that's doing a disservice to idiots all over the world. They're whatever's worse than that. I feel more sorry for them than anything.

Because they're so mean?
I don't know if it's being mean, than being utterly moronic. There's a quality of somebody that must have been deeply hurt, to become so immature and to have such an unloved soul that they would choose a profession like that. It's incredible.
