Reynolds plays De Armas’ ex-boyfriend Jonah in the movie with very little screen time. However, despite little time on the screen, the actor managed to deliver some hilarious wise cracks. While Jonah does his usual snarky Reynolds schtick, his slick white suit and the eye patch made matters more hilarious. And recently a little glimpse of Reynolds from the film surfaced online.

Unsurprisingly, the fans were left in splits as they had hilarious reactions to the same. While a user commented how it’s “always fun to see Ryan do Ryan shit,” another wrote about how the Canadian actor is present everywhere these days. On the other hand, another user commented how Ryan’s present at all places as he commented, “Everywhere I turn, Ryan Reynolds is there.”
