The Social Network actor said that the kiss was planned to celebrate the Deadpool actor's win, if at all. But when Ryan Gosling was announced as the winner, the fellow actors decided to follow with the plan anyway. "He was game," Mr Garfield said about Ryan Reynolds. Here's the full backstory:
"I told Ryan Reynolds, 'If you win, kiss me instead of your wife..' and he said 'Yeah, that's great.' The plan was he would kind of move towards his wife and then last minute move to me. Then he didn't win much to our disappointment and we said we could still just do it. And he was game. I loved the fact it was so deep in the back crowd," Andrew Garfield said on The Graham Norton Show.
