Ryan Reynolds finds competitive actors "toxic".

The 'Green Lantern' star doesn't believe a movie set can work well if the cast can't get along and spend too much time trying to do better than one another.

He said: "It's toxic on a set when you're competitive with other actors. Whenever I've worked with another actor who's been competitive, usually nine times out of ten it's backfired on them - they've had a really unsatisfying experience. A film is so collaborative. It's the sum of its parts."

One person Ryan does enjoy working with is Sandra Bullock, and he would love the chance to reunite with his 'Proposal' co-star in future.

He said: "My producing partner is incredibly close with Sandra - we all met up about 10 years ago and we've been good friends since. I never thought we'd do a film together but it worked out.

"Movies like that are so contingent on that chemistry - it's a rare thing if you get it, so if I was going to do another romantic comedy I would hope it would be with Ms. Bullock."
