Sandra Bullock humorously recalled an incident from the set of the 2009 romantic comedy The Proposal, in which she costarred with Ryan Reynolds.

The 57-year-old performer told her story while appearing on Friday’s episode of the About Last Night podcast with Adam Ray, and noted that the event involved the 45-year-old accidentally making his naked groin visible to the film’s cast and crew.

The actress began the conversation by expressing that she and the Deadpool star had been friends for an extended period of time prior to appearing in the film.

‘Ryan and I have known each other since we were prepubescent. We go way, way, way back,’ she joked.

Bullock went on to note that the scene in question was filmed with the utmost privacy out of respect for the film’s performers. 

‘We had to do the naked scene that day and…we had a closed set, which means no one’s allowed to be on there, just hair and makeup coming in to fluff and hide,’ she recalled.

The Academy Award-winning actress then noted that she and her costar had been given protective coverings prior to shooting the scene.

Awkward! She said the incident was particularly awkward because the old friends went 'way, way, way back' and had known each other since they were 'prepubescent'; still from The Proposal

She stated: ‘Ryan and I have these flesh-colored things stuck to our privates, my hair is strategically over the nipples and Ryan’s little— not little, at all! It’s just whatever’s there, and I don’t know because I didn’t see it, I didn’t look!’

The actress also expressed that Reynolds’ private parts had been ‘stuck wherever it needed to be stuck.’

Bullock pointed out that she and her costar were not placed in comfortable positions and that they were not able to move around in between takes. 

‘When they’d say cut, we couldn’t really move. He was on his back with his knees up, and I’m on the floor just sort of resting on his knees, just waiting, and you don’t wanna look and we couldn’t really move,’ she said.

The Crash star then recalled that Reynolds’ groin was left exposed by his positioning. 

She stated: ‘Then, I hear Anne Fletcher from the darkness go, “Ryan, we can see your ball sack!” I’m like, “Oh God!” because you wanna look down but I’m like, “Don’t look down. Don’t look down.”‘

Bullock noted that, although many of the friend’s crew members looked around to get a better glimpse at the actor’s private parts, she was slightly annoyed by the director’s actions.

She stated: ‘Everyone in the darkness spun around to see if they could find a monitor. I was like, “Anne, there’s a way to present that information…”‘

The actress downplayed the severity of the situation and noted that she chalked it up to an unfortunate incident. 

‘But in friendship, you just didn’t care; it wasn’t my business to look, it’s just there, and then Anne just bringing everyone’s focus to that area,’ she said. 

She stated that the Green Lantern star ‘was just so cool. Unflappable. He is absolutely unflappable.’

Bullock specifically noted that she only agreed to work nude in the pursuit of comedy and that she was not interested in doing so in any other context. 

She recalled: ‘I was like, “I will do this naked scene only if I can be humiliated and funny.” You will not see me trying to attempt being sexy naked — in real life or onscreen. There’s just no point in it!’

She added: ‘It was for that reason, with a friend that you trusted comedically, and safety-wise I knew I was in the presence of safety.’
