Ryan Reynolds has just made a lovely gesture to a cinema in Utah

Here's your weird fact of the day: In Utah you can't serve alcohol if you are screening anything with nudity or sexual acts.

Guess they might think people looking at a nipple while intoxicated would send them into a blind fury.

Now, this quirk is particularly important as it recently got the cinema in the state into some hot water over a late night screening of Deadpool.

You remember Deadpool right? Bright breezy superhero film? Loads of laughs? Good action scenes? Plenty fourth wall breaking nudge-nudge wink-winks?

And a big stonking sex montage in it. (Which deserves credit for Mr. Pool not only going down on Vanessa, but being open to getting pegged too. Oh yeah, and it's really funny to boot.)

Cue a $25,000 fine (just over £17,000) for Utah cinema Brewvies. Ouch.

Fining a cinema around one employee's yearly wage over an outdated law seems rather silly, and in response a GoFundMe page was set up by Brewvies to fight the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Thankfully, it didn't take long for Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds to step in and donate $5,000 towards the fund.

Cheers Deadpool. Looking forward to your sequel coming out sometime soon. Tell Cable we said hi.
