Ryan Reynolds hates talking about his abs, but lucky for us, they just keep getting bigger! He may try to throw us off the track by writing his own bio in EW, but we won’t be deterred. As Reynolds gets shaped into the next big action star, his stomach muscles get shaped into ever more chiseled rows of awesomeness. But he wasn’t always this way. We’ve tracked down some of his earliest roles, when his abdominals were just a twinkle in some studio head’s eye. Watch the evolution, and thank your lucky stars for action movies.
And here are the movies that you now want to go out and rent:
- The Nines
- Blade: Trinity
- The Amityville Horror
- Green Lantern (out today!)
