Los Angeles, April 27 (IANS) Actor Ryan Reynolds created a Twitter account to troll himself.
The 39-year-old’s biography on the social media site reveals he is “uncle Dale’s nephew” and his 1.77 million fans are often treated to reading hilarious insults the pair throw at one another, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
One such post even saw Reynolds slam his “fictitious” uncle’s weight, when he wrote: “I don’t walk. I take brave steps, My Uncle Dale. Seconds before getting on an escalator with a large Slurpee (sic)”.
But the “Deadpool” revealed that the account is just “a character I invented to say awful things to Ryan Reynolds on social media”.
“Err, well, I don’t really have an Uncle Dale. He’s just a character I invented to say awful things to Ryan Reynolds on social media. So usually he’s trolling me in some hideous way and I just think that’s kind of funny. I guess I wanted to see what it would feel like to be both the trolled and the troll-ee,” Reynolds said.

I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be, whether that takes another year for me to do, or two months. I have no idea at this point,” she said.

Johnson is uncertain about her future in Hollywood
Los Angeles, April 27 (IANS) “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson says she still feels like she doesn’t know what she’s doing and is unsure of what her life will be like.
“I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing,” she said in the May issue of Interview, reports eonline.com.
“Like, I’m unsure of what my life will be like. I mean, I have such an obsession with making movies that I probably will always do that. But sometimes my life can feel so suffocating, and then it can feel so massive, like I don’t have a handle on it at all, and I don’t know where it’s going or what I’m going to do.
“Right now, I’m known for making movies. And I wonder if that’s it. I don’t know. It doesn’t feel like it to me.”
She shared that it seems like the world is “so fast to move its interest to someone else”.
“When I think about filmmakers and actresses that I have admired my whole life, I’ve admired their entire body of work. I have admired what they began with and what they’re doing now. And now I feel like there’s such a weird pressure to find the new face,” she continued.
“I don’t get it at all. I want to see women evolve. I want to see a body of work. I want to see all of it.”
