Ryan Reynolds may be a he-man who has it all – including Scarlett Johansson, his wife of two years – but whoever thought that might also include Pampers?

“The first time you do it,” Reynolds, speaking about his high-flying stuntwork, tells the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, “you’re deeply considering an adult diaper.”

“You spend one day a week eating what you want and the other six days eating drywall and woodchips,” he said, presumably joking.

During shooting, Reynolds, 33, was uncomfortably strapped into a snug wire harness for his flying scenes – not that comic-book hero territory isn’t already familiar to the star, who played the chatty hitman Deadpool in 2009’s X Men Origins: Wolverine.

“It’s all part of the job,” says Reynolds. “So I guess I can’t complain.”
