Ryan Reynolds has described his experience on the set of new low-budget thriller "Buried" as his worst - because he spent 14 days locked in a seven-foot-long wooden 'coffin'. The actor plays a U.S. truck driver who is kidnapped in Iraq and buried alive with only a cellphone and a torch for company and spent two weeks rolling around in the dirt and sand underground in Barcelona, Spain.
He admits the shoot left him unable to sleep and desperate for a holiday with his wife Scarlett Johansson when filming wrapped. He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I never slept, and it was a real problem. I was just so wound up. I was totally alone out there."
"Very few crew members spoke English and coming home at the end of each day was kind of a lonely, anxiety-ridden experience. I'd planned a vacation about six months beforehand to leave from the set and join my wife on this sandy beach, but there was so much sand in the box."
"I realized the last place I wanted to go afterward was a place filled with sand. I've never been happier to finish a movie. I will never complain on a film set again."
