13 of Ryan Reynolds’ roles revisited, in honor of his hotness’ 41st birthday

We’ve have been blessed with the Canadian heartthrob that is Ryan Reynolds for 41 years now. If you can think back to the first time you ever saw him on screen, chances are that it’s not even one of his first roles. Ryan has been stealing our hearts (and opening our eyes to hot class clown) for a lot longer than you think.

Check out some of these screen gems below.

1. As a high-schooler with a heart of gold, “Billy Simpson” on Nickelodeon’s Fifteen (1991)

Preteen you totally had a thing for this little sweetheart.

2. As super slimy “Seth” in the Sabrina the Teenage Witch movie (1996)

You’re a jerk, albeit a ridiculously cute one, Seth.

3. As slacker roomie “Berg” on Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place (1998-2001)

Wait, wait, wait … hot AND FUNNY? Berg was the “Need me a guy with a sense of humor” sexual awakening we had in our teenage years.

4. As makeout buddy “Chip” in Dick (1999)

Rewatching this just for the Ryan parts.

5. As party liaison Van Wilder in Van Wilder (2000)

Admit it: you would have totally fallen for Van’s shenanigans in college.

6. As supernatural detective “Hannibal King” in Blade: Trinity (2004)

Just getting prepared for his Green Lantern/Deadpool crime fighting roles.

7. As haunted homeowner “George Lutz” in The Amityville Horror (2005) 

Shirtless. Wet. Terrified … perfect.

8. As lowlife server “Monty” in Waiting (2005)

Still need a cold shower after this one.

9. As ugly duckling-turned overconfident swan “Chris Brander” in Just Friends (2005)

You could cut his awkwardness with a knife but still, 10/10.

10. As single dad “Will Hayes” in Definitely, Maybe (2008)


11. As philandering carnie “Mike Connell” in Adventureland (2009)

Kinda scum.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

12. As used and abused personal assistant “Andrew Paxton” in The Proposal (2009)

Come for Sandra Bullock, stay for Ryan … get blown away by Betty White.

13. As man-child “Mitch Planko” in The Change-Up (2001)

You’ll laugh til you cry.

Happy Birthday, Ryan!
