Ryan Reynolds comfort break ruined by dead horse

Ryan Reynolds comfort break ruined by dead horse

Ryan Reynolds' attempt to relieve himself while on a motorcycle excursion ended with the actor standing in a horse carcass.

One of the Deadpool actor's hobbies is taking long cross-country motorbike rides, and on one trip from Utah to Wyoming he decided to stop by the side of the road for a toilet break.

He hopped into a ravine so he could pee in private and found himself standing knee deep in a dead horse.

There was this God awful stench," Ryan told U.S. late night host James Corden, "I realised as soon as I jumped in there, I jumped into a dead horse, like, up to my knees. I didn't even want to get rid of my pants, I wanted to go to a hospital and have my legs cut off!"

And he never did get to relieve himself: "I didn't pee!" he recalled. "You just suck it up and you step out. That changes you."

Ryan is an avid traveller and he attempts to incorporate his love for globetrotting into his marriage with actress Blake Lively.

When speaking about his Valentine's Day plans for her recently, the 39-year-old told Entertainment Tonight: "I've done things where I've like flown halfway across the world to just see my wife for a day, because you've got to do that. I've been in about 15 countries in 20 days."

Ryan and Blake tied the knot in September 2012 and they share 14-month-old daughter James together.
