Warner Bros. sends Ryan Reynolds motorcycle safety gear, to no avail

Ryan-reynolds-safe-motorcycleAny studio cares for the well-being of its star talent, and when you're Warner Bros. looking out for "Green Lantern" star Ryan Reynolds, you want to take every precaution to protect the face of that potential franchise.

Reynolds, who is married to actress Scarlett Johansson, has been driving a motorcycle for almost 17 years, and higher-ups at Warners want to make sure he's padded up.

"I never really drive a car unless I have a passenger or it's raining. I’ve been riding since I was 16. They pretty much gave up on trying to change that. They just kept sending me all this safety gear," Reynolds recently told our brother blog Hero Complex.

"It's all back at the house getting dusty."

So the action star, whose film "Buried" opens this weekend, can't be tamed. We'd happily suit up for a chance to piggyback on his Ducati.
