Credibly accused rapist T.J. Miller has some thoughts on Ryan Reynolds

2017 was the year when TJ Miller went from “annoying douche-bro actor/comedian on the come-up” to “outed serial predator and all-around piece of sh-t.” That year was supposed to be Miller’s big coming out as the next Seth Rogen or something – he had multiple projects coming out on TV and film, he was part of the Deadpool franchise, he was working with top directors, everything was happening for this white mediocrity. Then the Daily Beast published a piece about how he brutally raped and assaulted a woman in college, and the dominoes just kept falling after that. He has a history of harassing women, female comics and trans people. He assaulted coworkers too. I genuinely thought we had, as a society, put TJ Miller on a proverbial ice floe and we would never have to deal with him again. Not so much. He was on The Adam Carolla Show and he decided to say some sh-t about Ryan Reynolds.

In an interview on “The Adam Carolla Show,” the 41-year-old actor explained, “I love him as a comedian, but I think after he got super, super famous from the first Deadpool, then he — yeah, things kinda changed.”

Miller went on to say the two had a contentious moment on set, where Reynolds took riffing a little too far, and was seemingly disparaging of Miller. “We had a really weird moment — really weird moment on Deadpool, where he said ‘Let’s do one more take.’ And then as the character, he was, like, horrifically mean to me. But to me. As if … I’m Weasel,. He was like, ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star … but you do just enough exposition that it’s funny, and then we can leave and get back to the real movie.’”

He said the moment on set was incredibly uncomfortable — not just for him but for the entire crew. “Everybody was like, ‘Why is Ryan doing this?’” he told the media personality. Miller also suggested the interaction went deeper than just an onscreen dynamic. “That’s exactly why he said that,” he deadpanned. “Because I’m not funnier than he is at all, right? And I haven’t been in more movies than him.”

“Would I work with him again? No. I would not work with him again,” he said, adding, “I sorta wish him well because he’s so good at Deadpool, and I think it’s weird that he hates me.”

The “Silicon Valley” actor went on to share his opinions of the Canadian actor, calling him “really nice” but also saying, “I think he’s kinda an insecure dude.”

While he mentioned only meeting his co-stars equally famous other half once, Miller had something to note of Reynolds’ relationship with wife Blake Lively.

“I think both of them, their public image is very well curated,” he said of the pair, who have been married for 10 years and are expecting their fourth child together. ‘I don’t wish them any ill-will. I just think he doesn’t like me and I thought it was weird how he expressed that.” Earlier in the interview, Miller went so far as to say “I think it’s weird that he hates me.”

So… Miller is complaining that Ryan Reynolds, in character as Deadpool, riffed some off-script insults at Miller’s character Weasel. Miller is terribly offended by that? Okay. I suspect Ryan Reynolds won’t work with TJ Miller again because Miller was credibly accused of rape, assault and sexual harassment of multiple women, not because of whatever immature boy-beef is playing out in Miller’s head. (Now all that being said, do I also think that Ryan Reynolds is likely kind of an a–hole? Sure. He seems tightly wound and I have no problems believing he’s a d-bag to many people. But if he behaved this way to TJ Miller, I’m on Ryan’s side.)

Heads up to all of the industry magazines covering these Miller quotes: stop saying Miller is “controversial.” He wasn’t thrown out of Hollywood because he’s “controversial.” He was thrown out of Hollywood because he hurt women and colleagues. And he trashed everyone on his way out the door.
