Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds Brought Their Bromance to SXSW

Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal attended the premiere of Life at the Zach Theatre during the 2017 SXSW Conference And Festivals yesterday (March 18, 2017) in Austin, Texas.

The pair apparently really hit it off and became fast friends while they filmed their new sci-fi thriller called Life.

Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

During an interview with Good Morning America on Thursday (watch that below), Ryan had nothing but good things to say about his 36-year-old co-star.

“I think he’s easily the most interesting actor working in Hollywood today. He’s definitely one of my favorites,” the 40-year-old Deadpool actor said. “And at the same time he’s one of the kindest guys I’ve ever met. So suddenly I find myself – we’re hanging out all the time. We live near each other. It’s cool.”

The actor opens up about his role in the upcoming fantasy film.

Reynolds described his connection with Gyllenhaal to the Page Six, “You do these films and get to work with really amazing people, really talented people and you think ‘oh I’m going to hang out with these people afterward and see them again.’ You don’t most of the time because you go on living your life. But with this guy, we’ve stayed friends. That’s a lucky thing. It doesn’t always happen.”

And Gyllenhaal talked about his relationship with Reynolds, “We sort of grew up in this business together without knowing each other until very recently. It’s hard in a business where … a lot of times we’re pretending to get closer to the truth and to find somebody who you feel is genuine. I feel that way about him, so we’re friends.”
