Ryan Reynolds has been called out by an ITV news reporter after swearing live on air during a Wrexham FC press conference.
The actor, who co-owns the football club with comedian Rob McElhenney, gave his first ever press conference on Thursday (October 28).
“We just want to set up the structure for the club to continue long after we’re dead,” Reynolds told reporters. “Unless there’s a meteor, then we’re all fucked.”
The ITV reporter instantly jumped in to apologise for Reynolds language, as the conference was being livestreamed to the channel’s audience.
Reynolds instantly apologised: “I had no idea, I’m so sorry.”
The pair purchased the Welsh football club this year after their bid to buy it was approved by Wrexham’s Supporters Trust Board back in November.
They were in attendance at the team’s match against Maidenhead United on Wednesday (October 27), where the club lost 3 – 2.
Posting several photos of the game last night, Reynolds wrote on his Instagram account: “Football is a staggering, heartbreaking, gorgeous, tommy-gun of soul-deadening, evil and beauty and I’m never sleeping again ever, ever.”
McElhenney also posted a photo from the game on Twitter, joking “we didn’t want our first win to be away anyway” and congratulating Maidenhead on “a tough game”.
Meanwhile, Reynolds has said that he is taking a “little sabbatical” from filmmaking.
The actor took to Instagram earlier this month to reveal that he’d now finished work on Spirited, his upcoming holiday film for Apple TV+.

Reynolds, who’d been working on the production since July, wrote: “That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago.
“Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”
‘Free Guy’ review: Ryan Reynolds breaks out
Every morning Guy (Ryan Reynolds) wakes up, puts on the same blue shirt, and heads to his bank teller job via the coffee shop. His order is always identical: medium with cream and two sugars. Later, when the bank gets ambushed by an armed robber, which seems to happen each day like clockwork, he follows the instruction to “get down!” without question. While the real action unfolds just beyond his eyeline, Guy is hugging the floor, chitchatting with his security guard pal Buddy (Lil Rel Howery).
Guy’s eerily monotonous routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to a tough-looking woman (Jodie Comer) outside the bank. In a display of free will that Buddy seems perturbed by, Guy plucks up the courage to speak to her. It’s the first step in his journey towards realising that his so-called life is phoney. Guy, like Buddy, is actually a non-player character (NPC) in a video game called Free City.
