"I went to this charity event. It’s really neat because you get to raise money for good causes, and people recognize you, and they’re really nice to you."

"She then asked me if I knew Deadpool was going to be that big of a hit.”

"I didn’t have the heart to tell her.” So for five minutes, “I just pretended like I was the coolest guy on Earth, Ryan Reynolds.”
