Ryan Reynolds bought Welsh National League side Wrexham FC in 2021.
Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds has revealed he was red in the face watching his beloved Wrexham play alongside David Beckham at Wembley Stadium.
Reynolds spoke about the “humiliating” moment when he celebrated an offside goal during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live with guest presenter and his footballing business partner Rob McElhenney.
The Hollywood stars, who bought Wrexham Football Club in February 2021, took part in the FA Trophy final between their club and Bromley in May.
They sat alongside celebrities like David Beckham and Will Ferrel in the royal box at Wembley Stadium.
The Wales side were trailing after Michael Cheek’s opening goal and thought they had found a way back into the game when Jack Hyde headed in from close range in injury time, but the result was an offside decision.
Reynolds and McElhenney jumped out of their seats but were the only ones celebrating even after the referee marked the goal as offside.
“Someone needs to explain the offside rule to the A-listers,” joked the BT Sports commentator.
Beckham could be seen chatting to the pair and explaining what had happened on the pitch.
McElhenney recalled the moment he turned to Beckham and saw him shake his head in dismay.
“We cheered and looked over at Beckham and he just shook his head.”
Reynolds added: “How humiliating. . . To be fair, no one understands the offside rule.”
A documentary series about Wrexham’s time under Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney is set to be released soon.
