The 50-year-old actor plays the role of Cable in the new Marvel superhero movie, which sees Ryan star as the titular character, but Josh – who also plays Thanos in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ movie – revealed he only accepted the role due to Ryan’s presence.

Josh – who has been married to his third wife, American model Kathryn Boyd, since 2016 – confessed: “I almost turned it down – but I have the greatest wife ever.”

The Hollywood star admitted to feeling tired after shooting ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and its follow-up film back-to-back.

But when the opportunity to work alongside the Canadian star arose, Josh just couldn’t reject the offer.

During an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, he said: “I was in the middle of ‘Avengers’, I was tired, and they said, ‘Do you want to do this thing?’

“I said, ‘I’ve already decided to do one of these movies [‘Avengers’]’, and [they said], ‘wait, do you want to do this other one?’

“And my wife said, ‘Why don’t you just read it?’

“And then I read it and it was really funny – and it’s Ryan Reynolds, man!”

Meanwhile, Ryan admitted earlier this week that being married to actress Blake Lively is the “best gig”.

The 41-year-old actor – who has daughters James, three, and 18-month-old Ines with the blonde beauty – confessed to being a very lucky man to be with the Hollywood star.

Ryan – who was previously married to actress Scarlett Johansson from 2008 until 2011 – shared: “Oh, I’m Mr. Lively 24/7. And I’m happy about it. It’s great. It’s the best gig.”
