SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ryan Reynolds will be watching Sunday’s Super Bowl — he’s just not sure which team he wants to win. The Canadian actor said he’s a fan of both the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos.
“I love Peyton, I’ve watched him my whole life, but I also really like the story of Cam Newton. I just think he’s amazing,” he said.
While he wasn’t picking sides, he did joke that the Panthers would win by a longshot: “I think they’re going to win by about 100 points.”
Though Reynolds was in San Francisco on Saturday — about an hour away from the big game — he said he was going to watch the Super Bowl with his actress-wife Blake Lively and daughter from his own couch.
“I’m going to watch it from the comfort of my own home. I have a one-year-old daughter and I’m getting back to her and my wife and we’re going to watch it there, so I’m out of here tonight,” he said.
Reynolds was busy promoting his new film, “Deadpool,” about the Marvel antihero known for his salty language and off-humor. Though he was torn about his Super Bowl pick, that wasn’t the case for his co-star, actor-comedian T.J. Miller.
“Yeah, buddy, I’m from Denver! Mile high till I die. It’s the 303,” said Miller, who plays Reynolds’ best friend in the new film and also stars in HBO’s “Silicon Valley.”
“Deadpool” is in theaters on Feb. 12. Super Bowl 50 will air live on CBS from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
