The First 5 Things We’d Do If We Woke Up in Ryan Reynolds’ Body

The Self/Less trailer got us thinking.

The upcoming psychological thriller, Self/Less, is about an exorbitantly wealthy man (Sir Ben Kingsley) who learns he’s dying from cancer. He opts for a revolutionary life-saving treatment that involves transferring his consciousness into, well, Ryan Reynolds. Everything gets complicated after that, but – even so – we’d definitely sign up for that treatment. 

Suspending both out morality and disbelief for the moment, we were inspired to create a list of what we’d do if we suddenly woke up in Ryan Reynolds’ body.

1. First things first, we’d have sex with Blake Lively. Don’t judge us.

2. While rolling around in post-coital bliss, we’d ask Blake a few questions about her lifestyle site, Preserve

3. We’d grow out our chest hair.

4. We’d learn advanced physics, build a time machine, and travel back to prevent Green Lantern from being made.

5. We’d switch bodies with Matthew McConaughey.
