Ryan Reynolds gives cheeky response to Wrexham captain who fancies his mum
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds is always good value for a quip or too - his long-running 'feud' with Hugh Jackman is proof of that.
And it seems that now he's the owner of a football club, even his players aren't safe from the old bantersaurus.
In case you missed it, whether that's because you literally have no interest whatsoever in football or you were out enjoying your life, it was a huge bank holiday for Wrexham Football Club.
The Welsh giants were up against National League rivals Notts County, as the pair battled it out in the race for the title.
And while the Red Dragons managed to nick a 3-2 victory, it was nail-biting stuff, with goalkeeper Ben Foster saving a last-minute penalty save.
After the game, Reynolds expressed his admiration for Foster, saying he couldn't believe what he'd just seen.
Speaking after the game, the Deadpool star said: "When I get my hands on Ben Foster he's going to be on the injured reserve list. I'm going to break ribs I'm going to hug him so hard."
Revealing what Reynolds said to him after the game, Foster told BT Sport: "Rob kissed me fully on the lips and Ryan called me a double-handsome bastard. I'll take that."
But it wasn't just their number one who came in for a compliment, apparently Reynolds' mum Tammy had also taken a shine to the club's captain Ben Tozer.
During an interview with the 33-year-old defender this week, Talk Sport presenter Laura Woods said: “Ryan Reynolds' mum has been flirting with you as well, you’re her favourite."
To which Tozer said: “Not quite her favourite, but we had a lovely hug though.”
Adding: "She’s not a bad looking woman at 77 it’s got to be said!”
And his comments didn't go unnoticed by his boss, who was quick to let his feelings be known on the matter.
Taking to Twitter, Reynolds commented on a video of the exchange, writing: "Get promoted and I’ll make you my new stepdad, Tozer."
I guess we'll know in a few weeks whether he follows through on his promise.
But if you thought that the film star's dalliance into the sporting world was a fleeting one, it looks like he is planning on being there for the long haul.
According to reports, Reynolds has bought a home in the Welsh village of Marford.
And the news, if true, seems to have gone down well with locals.
"It's fantastic news that he's chosen Marford as a place to live," one resident said.
"What he and Rob [McElhenney] have put into Wrexham, both the football club and the local community, has been incredible."
