Ryan Reynolds is a fish. He can unflinchingly stare at you seemingly forever as he's proven by beating a record previously set forth by actress Jessica Chastain.
At the very least, the Deadpool 2 actor is a good catch.
.@VancityReynolds consigue superar el récord de @jes_chastain aguantando 2:37.20 minutos ¡sin parpadear! 👏🏻👏🏻 … https://t.co/uEMyv71VUk— El Hormiguero (@El Hormiguero)1526588586.0
Reynolds appeared on the Spanish morning show "El Hormiguero" on Thursday where he was challenged to beat Jessica Chastain's then impressive staring record of 2 minutes and 2 seconds.
The 41-year-old directed his hazel eyes right into the camera for a whopping 2 minutes and 37 seconds, defeating the former record-bearer by half a minute.
His Deadpool 2 co-star Josh Brolin was also a guest on the program and tested his staring prowess. Unfortunately, his eyelids failed him after just 43 seconds.
Reynolds gloated. Just a little bit.
Brolin was easy. But it took years of training to break @jes_chastain’s staring contest record. #deadpool2 🇪🇸 https://t.co/xHTkEpK2td— Ryan Reynolds (@Ryan Reynolds)1526590800.0
Fans were quick to challenge him from their computers.

Chastain conceded, but not without anguish.
There is no greater agony. #rematch @VancityReynolds https://t.co/seiKEp6b3V— Jessica Chastain (@Jessica Chastain)1526651775.0
However, her fans claimed that she reigns supreme when it comes to executing the eye roll.
@jes_chastain @VancityReynolds Yeah, but who does the superior eyeroll? https://t.co/qnBtzhfsYJ— Dean Warren (@Dean Warren)1526653855.0
Some were in awe of Reynold's special talent. And turned on by it.
