Ryan Reynolds Says That Airplane Story Was a Lie: A Woman Did Not Throw Up on Him

Last month, Radar Online reported that on a flight to New Orleans, a drunk passenger threw up on Ryan Reynolds's cashmere sweater, forcing him to spend a good chunk of the flight shirtless. This gave us hope that there was a way to get Reynolds semi-nude without being (a) Blake Lively, or (b) his director. But this weekend, at Michael J. Fox's annual fund-raiser "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s," our hopes were dashed. "I heard about that," Reynolds told Vulture when we asked the whereabouts of his infamous sweater. "That is utterly made-up. I don't know where that stuff comes from. It's fantastic, it sounds like a great story." In reality, it's been decades since a girl vomited on him. "Someone threw up on me in fifth grade. That was the last time it happened. Sherry Piper, while we were square dancing. Trafalgar Elementary School. Yeah, that was the last time."
