The 2017 American science fiction horror film Life, directed by Daniel Espinosa, starred actors Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. The six-person International Space Station crew that found the first signs of extraterrestrial life on Mars was the main focus of the film.

When Life debuted, both the public and the reviewers responded favorably to it, but it was also compared to 1979’s Alien. The two friends, Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal played the title roles of Rory Adams, an American ISS engineer, and Dr. David Jordan, an American ISS medical officer, respectively. Before the film’s premiere and throughout its promotion, the two of them had a great time.

Viewers commented in the video that getting the two actors to answer the questions nicely and honestly is a dream because they are a laughing riot together. When Gyllenhaal appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he revealed that the producers of the movie had to pull them aside and tell them that their on-set antics were becoming a challenge for filming. He said,

“They brought us into the corner and they were like, ‘You guys need to cut it out. We are wasting so much money!’ We’re starting a bromance.”

I love Deadpool. I can’t wait to see the movie. You’re one of my best friends. Blake, the fam, the whole thing, but…back it up a little. It’s just…play a little hard to get. It’s too much. It’s not sexy. Am I right? It’s not. Sorry about that.” 

Reynolds further explained, “I’ve been trying to get him to play Wolverine again and he just won’t listen. He insists on singing and dancing brilliantly elsewhere, so I don’t know. I’m going to have to step up my game a little and post his cell phone number online.”
