Ryan Reynolds reminds Sandra Bullock about when they were naked together in birthday post

Ryan Reynolds reminds Sandra Bullock about when they were naked together in birthday post

The Deadpool star made sure his birthday post would stand out from the rest

It's tradition to share embarrassing images of your friends on their birthdays, right? Ryan Reynolds obviously thinks so, as he used the occasion to remind Sandra Bullock of a time they were naked together.

A birthday wish from the rom-com and Marvel star might be a dream come true for a lot of people, but I imagine Bullock could have probably lived without this particular message when she celebrated her 59th birthday yesterday (26 July).

The Blind Side actor no doubt received dozens of messages from fans on her big day, but Reynolds decided to make his post stand out by fronting it with the image of his and Bullock's naked bodies.

Taken from their 2009 movie The Proposal, the clip is already out there in public, but at least in the movie it's surrounded by context. In Reynolds' post, it's really just him and Bullock falling on top of each other with no clothes on.

The scene takes place before Reynolds and Bullock's characters realise they're in love - sorry, spoiler, but it's a 14-year-old romcom, it's not hard to guess what happens if you don't know already.

Anyway, Bullock's character, Margaret, has just got out of the shower and is trying to escape a dog who doesn't seem to like her very much.

She shuts him in the bathroom, and as she does she runs straight into Reynolds' character, Andrew, who's just stripped off after going for a run.

This isn't what it looks like.

The pair fall on top of one another in an entirely awkward and very slow display, leaving them both shouting with horror and confusion over their accidental collision.

In a caption alongside the clip, Reynolds joked that the reminder of their nakedness wasn't the only thing he'd got Bullock for her birthday.

"Happy Birthday to the inimitable and stunning Sandra Bullock! For your birthday this year, I got us both intimacy coordinators. And an HR department. And clothing?" he wrote.

Though the scene is definitely awkward to watch, Bullock has previously insisted it was very well-handled between the cast and crew on set.

Speaking on the About Last Night Podcast with Adam Ray in 2021, Bullock explained: "Ryan and I have known each other since we were prepubescent. We go way, way, way back.

"We had to do the naked scene that day and Anne Fletcher, our director who's just incredible, she's great."

"We had a closed set, which means no one's allowed to be on there, just hair and makeup coming in to fluff and hide."

Bullock added that she and Reynolds used 'flesh-colored things' to cover their private parts, adding: "My hair is strategically over the nipples and Ryan's little— not little, at all!

"It's just whatever's there, and I don't know because I didn't see it, I didn't look!"

"Ryan was just so cool," Bullock added. "Unflappable. He is absolutely unflappable."

Unflappable, and evidently entirely unbothered about showing off his naked body. At least his confidence made for a memorable birthday post!
