Sandra Bullock was forced to look away after seeing Ryan Reynolds' 'ball sack' during 'humiliating' naked scene

Sandra Bullock was forced to look away after seeing Ryan Reynolds' 'ball sack' during 'humiliating' naked scene

Reynolds wished his former co-star a happy birthday by reminding her of a nude scene they did

Earlier this week Ryan Reynolds wished his The Proposal co-star Sandra Bullock a very happy birthday by reminding her of the naked scene they did together for that movie.

It was Bullock's 59th on Wednesday (26 July) and the Hollywood star got plenty of birthday messages, though one she could have done without was the one Reynolds sent her.

He put up a birthday post with a picture of them naked together from The Proposal where a scene in the rom-com has them naked and accidentally wrapped around one another.

In the movie, Bullock's character has just come out of the shower and is trying to deal with a dog that doesn't like her, while Reynolds has just stripped off after going for a run.

Trust us, it makes sense in context, and Reynolds took a picture from that for the post which read: "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?"

This is the scene Ryan Reynolds shared on Instagram to wish Sandra Bullock a happy birthday.

The thing is, that post was put on Instagram and Sandra Bullock isn't on there, so it's possible she has no idea what her former co-star has been posting about her.

However, if someone does tell her about it, she's sure to know exactly which scene it was because of a particular incident where she got a brief glimpse at Reynolds' Bullocks, so to speak.

See, when actors do nude scenes they have flesh coloured coverings over the important bits so they're not just totally naked in front of each other.

Bullock once told People (the magazine, not just anyone who would listen) that on the day of filming the naked scene they were resting in between takes when The Proposal director Anne Fletcher shouted: "Ryan, we can see your ball sack!"

It turned out that some of the coverings had not entirely covered and Bullock remembered thinking 'don't look down' even while admitting 'you wanna look down'.

She remembers telling the director afterwards that 'there's a way to present that information' but thankfully Reynolds was 'unflappable' about his bits flapping out for the crew to see.

The actors handled it like pros and got on with the job, which might have been helped by the two stars having 'known each other since we were prepubescent'.

Bullock also said she agreed to do the nude scene on the condition that she would be 'humiliated and funny'.

She said: "You will not see me trying to attempt to be sexy naked - in real life or onscreen. There's just no point in it!

"It was for that reason, with a friend that you trusted comedically, and safety-wise I knew I was in the presence of safety."
