Why so glum, Ryan Reynolds?

We all remember Taylor Swift's epic 4th of July party at her Rhode Island home. The singer's then-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston wore an "I ❤️ T.S." shirt, a multitude of models rocked matching patriotic swimsuits, and an expectant Blake Lively showed off her baby bump in a cute bikini.

But there was one guest who appeared to be having a rather terrible time, and that was the usually chipper Deadpool star. An image was shared on Instagram from the bash that depicted a very happy Swift, Hiddleston, and Lively, alongside a very unhappy-looking Reynolds (above). However, he has a very reasonable explanation for the blank expression—a simple case of resting sad face.

Reynolds recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his perturbed look in the picture, and they asked the actor if he was actually upset when the snap was taken. "No that’s a problem I’ve had all my life," he admitted. "If I’m not aware a photo is being taken, my natural resting face is one of a man dying. I had no idea somebody was taking a photo. Therefore I was resting comfortably in my persona of a man whose soul is visibly exiting this earth."

There you have it folks.
