Ryan Reynolds has confessed he's make a useless secret agent in real life - because he's such a bad liar.

The 35-year-old actor plays CIA agent Matt Weston in intense thriller Safe House, opposite Denzel Washington as a dangerous CIA traitor. But despite all his acting skills, Ryan insists he can't tell lies.

He admitted: "Oh man, I'm in trouble with that... I'm a terrible liar. My face does weird things, I get all sorts of ticks. Somebody would say, 'Is that the truth?' I don't think I'd make the best CIA agent at all."

Meanwhile, his co-star Nora Arnezeder revealed playing Ryan's girlfriend in the movie was easy.

She said: "I just needed to look at Ryan Reynolds and pretend I'm in love.

"He's a good kisser also. In the movie we have scenes where we kiss, of course, in the shower.

"I knew that he was the sexiest man alive, so that wasn't hard. I got to have a shower with the sexiest man alive."

::Safe House is released on DVD on June 15
