Ryan Reynolds finally explains his death stare at Taylor Swift’s fourth of July party.

We all know what resting bitch face is, and some lucky (or not so lucky) people out there have resting nice face. But Ryan Reynolds claims he has a resting face of a different kind.

The revelation came when Entertainment Weekly asked Reynolds about a certain photo taken at Taylor Swift’s fourth of July weekend away.

While everyone else in the snap looks happy and loved-up, the 40-year-old expression appeared to be a mixture of boredom and depression, resulting in the impression that he did not want to be there.

Fans noticed what appeared to be potentially a cry for help from Reynolds, with many meme’s and funny tweets created using his face.

Now, the actor has told the magazine there was a simple explanation: he has resting sad face.

“No, that’s a problem I’ve had all my life,” the father-of-two responded to suggestions he was upset.

“If I’m not aware a photo is being taken, my natural resting face is one of a man dying.

“I had no idea somebody was taking a photo. Therefore I was resting comfortably in my persona of a man whose soul is visibly exiting this earth.”

Well, there you have it.
