Ryan Reynolds Jokes About the 'Stillness' He Enjoys While Filming — as Cars Explode Around Him

Ryan Reynolds is enjoying the serenity of his new film with action movie guru Michael Bay.

The Deadpool 2 actor, 41, shared a hilarious video of himself on the set of his new Netflix film 6 Underground in which he opened up about working with the Transformers director.

“Best part about shooting with Michael Bay? I don’t know, a lot of people would say the action but for me, it’s the stillness, you know? Those quiet moments,” Reynolds said while leaning against a building as a whirring sound of car engines revving could be heard offscreen.

As Reynolds continued speaking, four cars could be seen driving behind him with one crashing into a white van while a black car flipped over into the air, landed and exploded.

The actor continued talking, unbothered by the commotion, saying, “…the essence of it, you can feel it. You can get lost in the character’s eyes. Those are the moments for me, I think.”

Plot details for 6 Underground have been closely guarded, with no plot available on the popular film website IMDb.

Reynolds is listed only as “One” on the website while his costars Dave Franco and Mélanie Laurent are credited as actors.

The father of two is known for his jokes on social media.

He recently shared a side-by-side comparison photo of himself in his Deadpool gear reclining in front of a fireplace — which was extremely similar to a photo taken of Burt Reynolds for his iconic Cosmopolitan magazine spread in 1972.

“He did it first. And best. And naked. #BurtReynolds,” the actor tweeted after the icon died earlier this month.

Reynolds also recently entered into a feud with Paddington Bear over who would win the most People’s Choice Awards.

KISS Announces Final Ever Tour 'End of the Road' After 4 Decades of Music

KISS Announces Final Ever Tour 'End of the Road' After 4 Decades of Music

After 45 years in the business, KISS is saying goodbye.

On the Tuesday night episode of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, the beloved rock band announced their final tour— End of the Road.

The big reveal came after a stellar performance of “Detroit Rock City,” one of the group’s most popular songs, which has been used in over a dozen films and is considered a classic.

While the tour dates have not yet been revealed, KISS has promised it will be a tour to remember.

“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years,” KISS said.

“This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t.”

“KISS Army, we’re saying good on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable,” KISS added.

The makeup-clad band, which is currently comprised of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer was formed in New York City in 1973.

Past band members include Ace Frehley, Peter Criss, Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Mark St. John and Bruce Kulick.

In total, KISS has released 20 studio albums, 8 live albums, and 13 compilation albums plus over 60 singles.

The band has been noted as America’s #1 Gold Record Award-winning group of all time, according to the band’s website. KISS was also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

In addition to their many accolades, KISS has performed at the Super Bowl, Winter Olympics, and appeared on episodes of Family Guy and American Idol.

In February, Stanley, 66, spoke about the band’s future during an interview with Billboard.

Australian Football Players Wear Blackface to Dress Up as Venus and Serena Williams

Australian Football Players Wear Blackface to Dress Up as Venus and Serena Williams

WARNING PHOTO CONTAINED BELOW CONTAINS OFFENSIVE MATERIAL

An Australian football club has apologized after a number of its players wore blackface while dressed up as Venus and Serena Williams in celebration of the end of the footballers’ season.

One member of the Australian Penguin Football Club, which is located in Tasmania, posted a photograph on a public Facebook causing outrage.

In the photo, which has since been removed from social media, players Mitch Stanley and Matt Chamberlain can be seen wearing tennis skirts and black wigs in addition to the black body paint plastered not only on their faces — but their entire bodies. 

The celebration, which is known as Mad Monday, is a term widely used in Australia to refer to the traditional end-of-season festivities for football players.

Also in the photo was Beau Grundy, who dressed up as Kenyan-born Sydney Swans AFL player Aliir Aliir.

Shortly after the post was shared, many outraged social media users slammed the photo as racist.

“Some Australians still have no clue what is considered racist. This Mad Monday ‘costume’ is clearly racist. And I’m a person who is fed up with today’s over-the-top political correctness,” one user wrote.

The Penguin Football Club has since issued an apology stating, the costume “is unacceptable in this day and age.”

However, “it was not their intention to upset anyone and all they meant to do was dress as one of their sporting idols.”

“Their actions were never intended to be racist in any way. Those concerned have been reprimanded and will be given support to make sure they understand that their behavior was racist and hurtful and that it will not happen again.”

“The players concerned have acknowledged that what they did was completely and utterly unacceptable and would like to apologize unreservedly for their lack of judgment.”

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Shares First Photo After Undergoing Breast Reduction Procedure

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Shares First Photo After Undergoing Breast Reduction Procedure

Kim Zolciak-Biermann has officially gone under the knife (again).

On Wednesday, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared the first photo of herself after undergoing a breast reduction.

“Part of the itty bitty titty committee,” she wrote on the photograph that she shared on her Instagram Stories.

In the shot, the reality star is makeup-free and is laying down in bed wearing a post-surgical compression bra.

Over the summer, the mother of six revealed that she was planning to get smaller breast implants and asked fans for their input through an Instagram story poll on what size they think she should reduce to.

“Which one,” Zolciak-Biermann, 40, wrote in the post with two implant size options: “Full C DD.”

Following the vote, she posted a photo of herself in a strapless red bikini — but did not announce which size she would downgrade to.

“Thx @kanebiermann for taking this pic of me today!!” the reality star wrote, acknowledging her 4-year-old son, Kane for snapping the shot next to the swimming pool. “Lopsided boobs and all (clearly it’s the bathing suit lol) 😂🤣 But thanks you guys for voting on C/DD can’t wait to downsize a little @dr.hochstein 💃🏼💃🏼

On Wednesday, Zolciak-Biermann thanked her surgeon, Dr. Leonard Hochstein, who led the procedure. Hochstein is the husband of former Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein.

The plastic surgeon was also responsible for Zolciak-Biermann’s breast lift and tummy tuck in 2014, whom she has spoken very highly of since the procedure.

Magician Shin Lim Crowned Season 13 Champion of America's Got Talent

Magician Shin Lim Crowned Season 13 Champion of America's Got Talent

Shin Lim is the winner of America’s Got Talent!

“When you told me at 16 that an awkward, shy kid would one day be performing at the Dolby Theatre performing on America’s Got Talent, I wouldn’t have believed them. To compete on AGT, it means the world to me,” said Lim, who opened up about his carpal tunnel syndrome due to a career-ending injury to his thumb tendons.

The 26-year-old self-taught magician, who was born in Canada and currently lives in Acton, Massachusetts, wowed audiences through sleight of hand magic and close-up tricks. For his final trick, Lim performed a card trick with host Tyra Banks and American Ninja Warrior co-hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila.

During the competition, both judges Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell called Lim “the best close-up magician they have ever seen.”

“You’re the only one that makes me believe that magic is possible,” Heidi Klum said.

Lim becomes the second magician to win AGT. Mat Franco was the winner of the ninth season.

Early in his childhood, Lim, whose parents are from Singapore, showed an interest in music and chose to play the piano at age 9. As a hobby, he practiced magic at age 16.

However, he was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome at age 20 and was forced to choose between his two interests. Lim gave up his piano career, even dropping out of the School of Music at Lee University in Tennessee.

After learning most of his magic skills from watching YouTube, he appeared twice on Penn Jillette and Teller’s magic competition show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, in 2015 and 2017. He took his talents overseas, including gigs in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and Taiwan.
