The TV and radio personality is known for wearing sharply tailored suits and crisp white shirts while chatting with celebs on the red carpet. While Ryan rarely varies his onscreen uniform, he has now shared that he is also a creature of habit when it comes to fragrance and has been using Yves De Sistelle’s Thallium for Men for many years. “Now this is a little bit random. It was given to me as a gift by a friend, I would say almost 20 years ago. I said to him, ‘Where did you get this?’ And he said, ‘The drugstore.’ So I don’t think it’s a very fancy item, but it is a cologne that I just found worked,” the 44-year-old recalled in a chat with New York Magazine's The Strategist. “It wasn’t too strong, but it was one that when I put it on, people actually asked me what it is. You know, at some point, you can’t smell it yourself, but I got more questions about it, and so I kept using it, and when I use it, people say that it smells good, so I stuck with it. But it’s been an old favorite for a long time.” Among the other products Ryan keeps his bathroom cabinet stocked with include Victory Barber & Brand Super-Dry Hair Paste and skincare products from the Polished by Dr. Lancer range, which he partnered on with the dermatologist back in 2017. The presenter is especially a fan of the Dual Cleanse and Shave formula, which takes just a few minutes to use in the morning. “You get to use the cleanser and the shave at the same time, and I think, for a man, anything that simplifies a regimen in the morning, especially when you’re talking about shaving and washing your face, makes it easier and simplifies it, it’s always a plus. You lather up, just like you do your shaving cream, and then it serves as a cleanser, as well,” he insisted.
James McAvoy has confirmed the ending of X-Men: Dark Phoenix was reshot due to "parallels" with another superhero film. The Scottish actor reprises his role as Charles Xavier / Professor X in the latest installment of the Marvel Comics franchise, with the new movie focusing on how Jean Grey, as played by Sophie Turner, loses control of her telepathic and telekinetic powers and becomes the Phoenix. However, McAvoy has now shared in an interview with Yahoo Movies UK that the third act of the feature was totally re-written as it bore a resemblance to another movie in production at the time. "The end (of Dark Phoenix) changed a hell of a lot. The finale had to change. For the better. There was a lot of overlap and parallels with another superhero movie that came out... a while ago. And we had no idea that we were," he stated, while his co-star Michael Fassbender, who plays Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto, interjected: "They had spies on set and (they) basically stole our ideas. Infiltrated." "We were basically trawling through the source material, it seems,” McAvoy added. X-Men: Dark Phoenix began filming in June 2017, though director Simon Kinberg spent over a year in the post-production phase, with studio executives forced to delay the film's release twice. While McAvoy refused to comment on which other film he was referring to, there have been numerous Marvel and DC superhero movies made within the same period, including Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Infinity War, Aquaman and Avengers: Endgame. Elsewhere, Turner spoke about the changes to the ending of the flick, and added: "I think it's so much better for the reshoots. It was just one of those things... you watched the first two acts and the third act just didn't feel cohesive. We went back and we redid all of the third act pretty much and it was such a good decision. I mean, the third act is the best part of the movie, for me." X-Men: Dark Phoenix, also featuring Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
