Ryan Reynolds Cancels Arm Surgery for This Reason

Ryan Reynolds heads out of his apartment on Monday afternoon (January 21) in New York City.

The 42-year-old actor is back in town after a trip to China, where he was to promote the theatrical release of Deadpool 2. A re-cut, PG-13 version of the movie was recently approved for release in the country, where there are strict censorship rules.

Ryan says he canceled surgery on his arm, which was scheduled for this past weekend, to be at the premiere.

“It’s been a dream of mine for years to bring Deadpool to China and Chinese audiences, so for me this is, uh, heaven on earth,” Ryan said (via Variety). “This was more important. I was not going to miss coming to China.”
