Sometimes even celebrities get a laugh at the latest tabloid rumor. Even when there's no truth to the tale.
Such is the case with Ryan Reynolds, who, according to Radar Online, was recently forced to strip down on an airplane after a drunken passenger allegedly vomited on him.
The site claimed that the intoxicated traveler threw up on the actor's cashmere sweater, causing him to spend the majority of his flight from New York to New Orleans shirtless.
And the story quickly began the Internet rounds because, honestly, who doesn't want to imagine the Hollywood hunk flaunting his abtastic bod and bulging biceps in first class?
"I heard about that," the 37-year-old star told Vulture at Michael J. Fox's annual A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson's event when asked about his supposed airplane striptease. "That is utterly made-up. I don't know where that stuff comes from. It's fantastic, it sounds like a great story."
And he even revealed the last time someone actually vomited on him.
"Someone threw up on me in fifth grade," he shared. "That was the last time it happened. Sherry Piper, while we were square dancing. Trafalgar Elementary School. Yeah, that was the last time."
The Green Latern star—whose father, like Fox, suffers from Parkinsons—and wife Blake Lively made a rare public appearance together at the annual fundraiser, which benefits The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
The notoriously private couple posed for a photo with Coldplay singer Chris Martin plus Fox and wife Tracy Pollan at the star-studded charity event in New York City, which also saw Tina Fey, Seth Meyers, Julianna Margulies, Mario Batali, Joan Jett, George Stephanopoulos and Savannah Guthrie in attendance.
Denis Leary hosted the fundraiser, and Martin performed.
"Hollywood is fantastic at whoring themselves out for a good cause and more power to them," the R.I.P.D. star joked. "I mean, it's a really excellent thing that you can get this many talented, wonderful people together for whatever reason it is and have people donate money and see a great show tonight."
