Sarah Miles has gushed over her new lover Ian Hollis, who is 17 years her junior, saying he is ‘extraordinary’.
The actress, 79, who is famed for drinking her own urine, spoke candidly with The Daily Mail’s Sebastian Shakespeare on Thursday, gushing that ‘there is nothing’ the retired lawyer ‘can’t do’.
Sarah was previously married twice to screenwriter Robert Bolt, by whom she has son Tom, and famously had affairs with Laurence Olivier, Robert Mitchum, and Steven Spielberg.
Reflecting on Ian, Sarah admitted: ‘He’s extraordinary. There is nothing he can’t do. He’s a Mr Fixit.’
When it was suggested that the pair tie the knot in the future, Ian -who Sarah lovingly calls Jeeves- said: ‘We hadn’t thought about it.’
Sarah has been spending lockdown in her medieval manor house in West Sussex with her new partner, who has one daughter from his previous marriage.
Earlier this month, Sarah said of her boyfriend: ‘He’s called Jeeves — the name was his idea. And we’ve been having a wonderful time.’
The couple’s romance blossomed after they spent time playing chess and backgammon together.
Sarah was previously married twice to screenwriter Robert Bolt, by whom she has son Tom.
She had an affair with Laurence Olivier, which lasted on and off for 20 years from 1962, and she also enjoyed romances with her co-star on Ryan’s Daughter Robert Mitchum, and film-maker Steven Spielberg.
Sarah met Olivier at a film casting for the 1962 film Term Of Trial, he was in his mid-50s and recently married to his second wife, the actress Joan Plowright, when they embarked on their first affair.
She called Olivier ‘Lionel’ during their on-off 20-year affair, because ‘he was obsessed with Richard the Lionheart’. He used to call her ‘Pussycat’.
When they met he was 53 and she was 18, but in 2019 she told The Daily Mail: ‘I’ve never cared about age.
‘He was terribly like my father, but Larry took the biscuit when it comes to energy. He just never stopped. He had an energy you would not believe from anyone but avatars.’
She added: I never wanted to be married to him, though towards the end he definitely wanted to be married to me!’
Although she had other lovers, such as the hell-raising actor Nicol Williamson and Spielberg, she returned to Olivier more than once, and they remained close until his death in 1989.
Sarah also spoke to MailOnline about falling for movie mogul Spielberg, with whom she lived, briefly in LA, saying: ‘He was charming, just like a little boy — though it was our dogs who fell in love first.’
The actress and her husband Robert were first married from 1967 to 1976, and they got remarried in 1988 – two years after he suffered a stroke which left him partially paralysed and affected his speech, they remained together until his death in 1995.
Her last lover was a chap she’d met through the local monastery, and Sarah also reflected on the relationship with MailOnline.
‘He was a walking encyclopaedia of the esoteric arts and so, so kind,’ she said at the time. ‘But sadly he was also a gambling addict and he cleaned me out completely.’

Chris Scott has declared Geelong’s boom off-season recruit Jeremy Cameron ready to play, ahead of the Cats’ tough task against West Coast in round six.
The former GWS forward and 2019 Coleman Medal winner has been battling hamstring injuries since joining the Cats but Scott said it was time to unleash him into the forward 50 in the blue and white hoops.
“Ready to go. He’s in,” Scott said.
“I am also putting a bit of pressure on our medical and conditioning staff. It is about time,” Scott then joked.
Cameron’s arrival would be perfect timing given the Eagles boast one of the strongest aerial defensive units in the competition.
The dual All-Australian would also be a much needed boost for the Cats, who were again not great in their win over bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne at GMHBA Stadium on Sunday. The coach had said last week that the club were being deliberately cautious with their new star.
Geelong missed a lot of opportunities and were poor kicking inside 50, but given the amount of possession and chances they had ended up over-running the young North side.
“We were still going OK statistically in the first quarter,” Scott said. “I would like to say we started executing better [but] I don’t think it was that, I think it was the weight of numbers [chances].
“If you looked at the numbers overall you’d be happy … a lot of shots, a lot of inside 50s, a lot of possession, a lot of the numbers looked positive.

He is waiting on a commitment from the club in regards to his coaching staff next season, after assurances from the Sharks that he will be given autonomy, before putting pen to paper. He also wants to meet face-to-face with Sharks officials before signing the deal.
Fitzgibbon, a Roosters life member, last year turned down approaches from the New Zealand Warriors and St George Illawarra after promising coach Trent Robinson and chairman Nick Politis that he would not leave his role before the end of the 2022 season.
Brad Fittler, one of Fitzgibbon’s closest friends, said he had no doubt his mate was in line for the job.
“He works very hard, knows the game back to front and he loves the game,” Fittler told NRL.com.
“He’s got an affiliation with the Cronulla area. He lived there for a long time while he was playing with the Roosters. He knows a lot about the fans and the supporters there. He’s done his apprenticeship under Robbo, one of the best in the business. He knows what coaching is all about … I have to say there are not many other people I’d trust more taking on a first-grade role more than Craig Fitzgibbon.
“He’s got to the stage where the right job has come up. There were some other options last year and he decided against them, I think wisely. It shows a lot of maturity and a lot of confidence in yourself to wait for the right job because they just don’t come up that often.”
As for Morris, his players have leapt to his defence. Injured and off-contract playmaker Shaun Johnson told Fox League he was disappointed with the club’s treatment of the coach.
“I look at the facts, bro. I don’t know how you can [get rid of] a coach who has been throw in at the deep end right at the start,” Johnson said on The Matty Johns Show.
“He had to take over a difficult situation at the start with [Shane] Flanagan leaving. He’s gone after it, taken the side to the finals the last two years and finds himself in the position he is now. It’s disappointing, certainly disappointing.”
Fitzgibbon’s coronation as an NRL head coach came with the support of a couple of the Rabbitohs’ biggest stars despite their rivalry with the Roosters.
Cameron Murray and Damien Cook have both worked with the 43-year-old during his time on Fittler’s NSW staff during the last two State of Origin series, where Fitzgibbon was charged with leading the side’s defence.
“I guess it’s up to him, but I have no doubt [he’s ready],” Murray said. “I can’t praise him enough as a coach or as a person. I love Fitzy and I think he’s up there as one of the best coaches I’ve played under.”
Said Cook: “He’s a very smart coach and knows what he’s talking about. If he does get a job there would be no one that deserves it more. He’s a great coach and I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve spent with him.”

Josh McGuire has been told he can speak to rivals as the Cowboys aim to get their roster in shape, while Craig Bellamy’s future could play a key role in a Broncos star’s contract talks.
McGuire switched from the Broncos at the start of Anthony Seibold’s tenure, but has endured a difficult spell in Townsville.
He has failed to play finals with the club and after a third straight loss the Queensland Origin representative ripped into his teammates on Sunday Night with Matty Johns.

“We just have a soft underbelly at the moment,” McGuire said.
“We just have no steel under tough circumstances. We just fold and it is becoming embarrassing mate it is. There is some glimpses of some attacking footy there, but then we just undo it all with just poor effort.
“We have been saying the same f***ing thing, sorry same stuff for three years. I’m over it and we have got to fix it mate. It is just not good enough.”
Mbye talking to rival clubs
Now, though, it appears McGuire has been told he is not wanted at the Cowboys with The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield revealing on NRL360 on Fox League that he was clear to explore his options.
“There was another little bit of mail I got from the Cowboys,” he said.
“Josh McGuire, he’s under contract until the end of next year.
“I’m told he’s welcome to go whenever he wants.
“He’s wearing jersey 15, he can’t get into the starting side even with Jason Taumalolo not there.”

BRONCOS GUN HOLDS FIRE ON EXTENSION OVER BELLAMY FUTURE
Broncos winger Xavier Coates will delay a decision on a contract extension offer from Brisbane while he awaits Storm coach Craig Bellamy’s call on his future.
NRL.com reported the Broncos are set to offer the 20-year-old an upgraded contract extension, but conjecture surrounding Bellamy’s plans beyond 2021 have thrown a spanner in the works.
The Storm are eyeing Coates as a potential replacement for Bulldogs-bound flyer Josh Addo-Carr, who has signed a four-year-deal at Belmore from next season.
According to NRL.com the Storm have offered Coates at least a two-year-deal, with the Broncos set to revise their two-year offer in a bid to keep Coates at Red Hill.
The Broncos are also locked in key negotiations with centre Kotoni Staggs and halfback Tom Dearden.
Mbye talking to rival clubs
Working with Bellamy would be a key driving force behind Coates’ potential defection to the Storm.
However, Bellamy is locked in his own contract negotiations with Melbourne, Brisbane and the Sharks with the possibility of moving from a head coach into a coaching director role.
It remains to be seen if Bellamy will coach one more year at the Storm before taking up a new role at either of the three clubs in contention, with the Storm in the box seat.
The Queensland winger may choose to wait until Bellamy makes a call before confirming his own future.
Coates has scored 11 tries in 18 games since his debut in 2019 and scored two tries in two games for the Maroons in his first Origin series last year.
REYNOLDS BREAKS SILENCE OVER BUNNIES CONTRACT
South Sydney have less than a week to put an offer to off-contract captain Adam Reynolds.
The playmaker’s manager has told Souths he will explore options if the Bunnies don’t budge on their offer of a one-year deal at $700,000.
Reynolds wants to stay but with the Rabbitohs only offering him a single year, offers such as the $3 million for three years reportedly being table by the Cowboys may be too good for the South Sydney junior to turn down.
Reynolds could be a Cowboy?
The 31-year-old confirmed he was open to leaving the Rabbitohs if they didn’t come to the table with an improved offer.
“Look, I’m there for the 12 months that my contract states now but hopefully we get things sorted over the next couple of weeks or months but at the moment I’m probably on Jobseeker next year,” he told Triple M.

“I don’t fell like I’m slowing down at any stage of my career, the body’s actually feeling pretty good.

LAM’S MESSAGE TO TIGERS OVER HASTINGS
Wigan coach Adrian Lam has issued a defiant hands-off message to the Wests Tigers over their bid to land Jackson Hastings.
The former Roosters and Manly halfback was linked to the Tigers last week, with the Concord club said to be considering a move for his services.
Hastings has played in the halves and also at hooker in his time in the Super League.
But Lam said there was no chance his club would let Hastings leave before his contract expires.
‘Terrible’ Bulldogs under big pressure
“He’s contracted to the end of the 2021 season, he’s here, he’s training well, he’s loving it, we’re enjoying his company, he’s going to play a part in us being successful this year and as far as we’re concerned, nothing’s changed,” Lam told the Manchester Evening News.
“I don’t know when that report was quoted from. Was it actually last week or was it an old quote rehashed?
“Jackson Hastings is off-contract at the end of this year, so I guess him and his management group are going to speaking to whoever they want to.
“All we’re in control of as a club is having him this year.”

Just as the judge told Robert Hoefman he’d be serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years, the murderer swayed and then toppled out of the prisoner’s box, onto the floor of a Medicine Hat, Alta., courtrooom.
On Wednesday night, a jury in the southern Alberta city convicted Hoefman of first-degree murder and extortion after three weeks of evidence and six hours of deliberations.
His brief sentencing hearing before Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Dallas Miller was seconds away from concluding Thursday afternoon when Hoefman appeared to faint.
The dramatic conclusion paralleled the strange case involving threatening letters, odd requests and the murder of an innocent man in order to prove the seriousness of the $1-million demand.
Sheriffs seemed to act quickly, attempting to catch and break Hoefman’s fall as one of the killer’s family members screamed at the sheriffs.
“F–king grab him,” he said after the fact. “There was a delay.”
The video link to the hearing cut out as Hoefman’s family in the courtroom gallery encouraged him to sit up and open his eyes.
When court reconvened and the video link was restored, Hoefman was not in the courtroom. Miller will finish the sentencing process Friday morning and has already given defence lawyers permission to keep Hoefman seated.
The judge thanked sheriffs for their prompt response before breaking for the day.
A publication ban protects the identity of the extortion victim who received the first of several letters to his business on Oct. 10, 2017.
Listen to the radio, letter demands
The letter writer said he’d been watching the businessman and his wife for weeks. It demanded $1 million or the killing would begin.
The letter instructed the man to put a red piece of paper on the door of his workplace all day on Day 1.
“On Day 2, we will show you exactly what we can do,” it promised.
“We could leave a small body part like a finger, or an ear or a tongue but we do not want to freak out your assistants, so just hearing that an individual was brutally murdered on the radio should be enough.”
Sure enough, the next day, James Satre’s body was found near his Medicine Hat, Alta., home. He’d been fatally stabbed. Hoefman’s DNA was found at the crime scene.
His DNA was also on some of the extortion letters collected by police.
Sister alone, isolated
Satre’s sister Marie wrote in a victim impact statement that her heart is broken and she cries all the time. She said she is isolated and alone now.
“I lost my brother and my best friend,” wrote Marie. “He was the only one who came to my house to visit me.”
“I used to enjoy life but now it’s just existing day to day.”
Satre’s obituary described him as a Red Seal chef who was a “gentle soul” with a passion for the outdoors, photography and reading.
Prosecutor Conor Doyle said “the murder makes the acts of extortion all the more terrifying.”
“The question of ‘why’ will never have a satisfactory answer and it’s heartbreaking.”

On Monday, March 15, Alexey Navalny confirmed that he is in custody at Penal Colony No. 2 (IK-2) in the town of Pokrov, northeast of Moscow. His whereabouts were unknown over the weekend, after the news broke on Friday, March 12, that he had been transferred out of a detention center in the nearby town of Kolchugino. Now, Navalny says he’s “doing well overall,” though he described the notorious penitentiary as a “friendly concentration camp.” According to his lawyers, who Navalny met with on Monday, the opposition politician is set to remain in a quarantine unit for the next two weeks, after which he will be moved in with the prison’s general population.

After being transferred from a Moscow remand prison in late February, opposition politician Alexey Navalny was sent to a detention center known as SIZO-3 in the city of Kolchugino (Vladimir region), northeast of Moscow. There, he was kept in “quarantine” along with other newly-arrived prisoners, until reports emerged on Friday, March 12, that he had been moved once again. Earlier, Meduza special correspondent Maxim Solopov travelled to Kolchugino and spoke to former prison employees, the people who built the detention center, and prisoners’ relatives, as well as local residents, activists, and politicians. Here’s what they told him about this town, where SIZO-3 and the police department’s brand-new complex are the most modern, public buildings.

Jair Bolsonaro is trying to shed his image as a “coronavirus denier”. Brazil’s far right president has spent the past year dismissing COVID-19 as “a little flu”, and railing against lockdowns. As recently as Mar. 4 he told Brazilians to “stop whining” about the country’s deaths from the virus, which have surpassed 270,000 – the second highest toll in the world after the U.S. Bolsonaro has dismissed offers from vaccine manufacturers to buy millions of doses, said he wouldn’t get a shot himself, and joked that Pfizer’s vaccine may “turn people into crocodiles.”
On Wednesday, though, the president struck a different tone. At a somber press conference in Brasilia, the first event where he has worn a mask in more than a month, Bolsonaro signed into law three new measures designed to speed up the purchase of vaccines. A week earlier, his government announced it was in advanced talks to purchase vaccine doses from Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. “We are working and have been working tirelessly since the beginning in the fight against the pandemic,” he said. “We are an example to the world.”
The recasting of Bolsonaro’s COVID-19 credentials continued online, where his politician son shared a dignified photo of his father on Wednesday night with the quote “The vaccine is our weapon” – prompting ridicule from critics. On Facebook, the president did live streams touting his vaccination records and shared regular updates from a delegation he has sent on a “Mission to Israel” to learn about an untested nasal spray to treat the disease.
His new approach came as the number of people dying from COVID-19 deaths each day reached record-breaking levels, in part driven by the spread of a more transmissible variant of the virus, with an unprecedented 2,233 deaths recorded on Thursday.
But analysts say it is politics, not the growing death toll, that is driving Bolsonaro’s attempt to rebrand his pandemic leadership. Growing pressure from Brazil’s business community to act over the last few months was bolstered this week by the return of a major political rival to the national stage. On Monday,former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – the popular leftist who was excluded from the 2018 election because of corruption charges – had his name cleared by Brazil’s supreme court, freeing him to run against Bolsonaro in 2022. He used his first speech after the verdict to condemn Bolsonaro’s handling of the pandemic. “Do not follow a single one of the president or health minister’s moronic decisions. Get vaccinated,” he told Brazilianson Wednesday.
Lula’s return and other sources of political pressure have changed the calculation for Bolsonaro when it comes to COVID-19, says Gustavo Ribeiro, founder of political news site The Brazilian Report. While the president has not admitted any mistakes or embraced social distancing, his change of heart could have transformative effects for Brazil — if it continues. “When we’re talking about Bolsonaro everything must come into conditional for him because he shifts and changes at every turn,” Ribeiro says. “But Lula could force him to actually act as the head of state and tackle the pandemic.”
How bad is Brazil’s COVID-19 outbreak right now?
Very bad. COVID-19 has never been brought fully under control in Brazil, but transmission is now at an all time high, and in on Mar. 5 Brazil accounted for 30% of new daily cases globally. Even though state and local governments have imposed social distancing and lockdowns across much of the country, many say the president’s criticism of such restrictions has fostered resistance to them from his supporters.
The wide spread of COVID-19 across Brazil has allowed the virus to mutate and led to the emergence of new, more immune-resistant and infectious strains, including the P1 variant which was first reported in the Amazonian city of Manaus in late 2020. Scientists say P1 is twice as infectious as earlier strains of the virus and it seems to be better at evading immune response, meaning that antibodies developed by people who caught earlier versions of COVID-19 are less effective against the new strain. Vaccine makers are testing the efficacy of their shots against P1. Lab tests show the Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford University/Astra Zeneca vaccines are effective against it. Scientists at Brazilian research institute Fiocruz said March 4 that “variants of concern”, including P1, have become dominant in six of eight states they studied.
How is Brazil’s vaccination campaign going?
Just over 4% of Brazil’s 210 million people have received their first shot of the vaccine. While that rate is not much lower than in most Western European nations, it’s frustrating for many in a country that has a long established and world renowned immunization infrastructure. The director of Brazil’s regulatory agency said in February that if the health service had enough supplies, it would be able to vaccinate 60 million Brazilians a month.
Public health experts say that the limited supply of vaccines that Brazil does have was achieved in spite of, not because of, Bolsonaro’s administration. Brazilian research centers Fiocruz and the Butantan Institute partnered respectively with AstraZeneca/Oxford University and Chinese manufacturer Sinovac to produce supplies of their vaccines in Brazil. But the federal government offered almost no funding or support for those efforts, according to Fernando Aith, a public health professor at the University of Sao Paulo. The government only stepped up its investment in the Fiocruz efforts towards the end of 2020, after São Paulo state governor João Doria, a Bolsonaro rival, touted his state’s investment in the Butantan efforts.
“Until very recently, the Brazilian government’s attitude to vaccines was: they aren’t my problem, people don’t need them,” Aith says. “They made no effort to produce vaccines internally or to identify the producers on the international market and buy them. Not only did they not make proactive efforts, they also refused offers to buy vaccines.” According to Pfizer, Brazil rejected its offer to sell Brazil 70 million doses of its vaccine in August 2020.
Adding to the headaches for the vaccine rollout, analysts say Brazil’s current health minister–a military general who was given the role after one of his predecessors was fired and another resigned last spring over disagreements with Bolsonaro– doesn’t have the expertise needed to lead an effective mass immunization campaign across Brazil’s massive territory. Meanwhile, Brazilian media reports growing anti-vaccine sentiment among the population, which has previously been rare in Brazil.
What has changed in Bolsonaro’s vaccine strategy?
After months of delays in talks with vaccine manufacturers, in part over Bolsonaro’s criticism of the terms of supply contracts, in early March the government announced it intended to purchase 100 million doses of Pfizer’s vaccine, 38 million of Johnson & Johnson and 13 million of Moderna’s. According to Bloomberg, the contracts have yet to be signed.
“Now we’re starting to see movement. But these efforts are obviously very late and they’re not going to solve the problems that Brazil has in the short term,” Aith says. He adds that even with all the doses that the government claims to have secured, and if all goes well, Brazil will still only have enough doses to vaccinate 50% of its population by the end of 2021.
Aith says one of the laws approved on Wednesday, allowing states and private companies to buy vaccines, will actually hurt the vaccination campaign by driving up competition and prices for the shots, allowing Brazil’s deep social and regional inequalities to dictate who gets vaccinated first. “Now that they realize we need vaccines, they are delegating responsibility for them to local governments and private companies.”
Why Is Bolsonaro warming to vaccines?
There are a few plausible reasons. Figures from Brazil’s business community, large sections of which backed Bolsonaro’s campaign in 2018, have begun to loudly voice concerns that without a vaccinated population, the economy, which shrank by 4.1% in 2020, will continue to struggle well into 2022. And, according to local media, in early March, Bolsonaro was shown a report showing his public support was falling as Brazilians watched other countries speed ahead with vaccination campaigns.
The return of Lula to the political scene is turbo-charging political concerns for the president. “The day after Lula gave his speech on the handling of the pandemic, Bolsonaro did a livestream on social media behaving in a way he’s never behaved –wearing a mask, acting reverential to the dead, stopping criticizing the vaccines, acting more responsible,” Aith says. “I put that down to Lula’s criticism.”
According to Ribeiro, the political analyst, the arrival of another political heavyweight has forced Bolsonaro to rethink his usual strategy on the pandemic. “Since he took office in 2019 Bolsonaro was essentially alone in the ring, with no real political challengers. He is a master of setting the press agenda and distracting from things he doesn’t want to talk about by saying provocative things [including] around COVID. But Lula also knows how to set the agenda.”
While he has yet to confirm if he will run in 2022, the former president’s speech struck a more conciliatory note than he has for several years, reaching out to the business community and the political center, Ribeiro says. The leftist has already received support for his pro-science start from key center-right figures. “I come from a region of Brazil where people are very resistant to Lula and voted massively for Bolsonaro. And many people now say, well you can say whatever you want about Lula but he was right about this or that,” Ribeiro says. “If Bolsonaro keeps being Bolsonaro, Lula is going to appear more and more presidential just by contrast.”

Ryan Reynolds has a confession to make: He’s “Bruce” the Ottawa Public Health intern who accidentally sent out a tweet on Super Bowl Sunday that congratulated the winner of the big game without removing the placeholder text.
At least, that’s according to a tweet from the OPH account.
There’s been a lot said lately about our dear social media intern, Bruce. And now, Bruce would like to say a few words…<a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/SteadyAsSheGoes?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#SteadyAsSheGoes</a> <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/BruceReynolds?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#BruceReynolds</a> <a href=”https://t.co/VCObMQWNq2″>pic.twitter.com/VCObMQWNq2</a>
After the Super Bowl this year, the Ottawa Public Health (OPH) twitter account sent out a post congratulating the winner.
Just one problem, the name of the winning team was missing, and the tweet seemed to imply that an employee named Bruce may have hit send too early.
WHAT AN AMAZING <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/SuperBowlLV?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#SuperBowlLV</a>!! Congratulations to the (*Bruce, make sure to put the winning team’s name here)<br><br>Thanks to everyone who stayed home & watched the game w/members of their household. We know this wasn’t the usual way to enjoy the game, & we thank you for your efforts. <a href=”https://t.co/gKD53I2bB9″>pic.twitter.com/gKD53I2bB9</a>
The post got thousands of likes and interactions from people who believed that Bruce had really messed up.
The next day, OPH piggybacked on its popularity with a thread explaining that the post wasn’t a mistake — rather it was a deliberate opportunity to discuss how to think critically about information online.
(i) using that placeholder image makes no sense. None. It just seems like a redundant amount of work to have made it, no?<br><br>(ii) it’s posted via Twitter & a quick scan of our tweets shows we always use the same platform when scheduling (i.e. it was not a pre-scheduled tweet) (2/4) <a href=”https://t.co/Z09o3H85pS”>pic.twitter.com/Z09o3H85pS</a>
“Btw, we’re so touched by the outpouring of support for dear Bruce (who doesn’t exist, btw). It’s nice to see such kindness out there. Be critical of what you see online. Misinformation has consequences that go far beyond the wellbeing of ‘Bruce,’ ” read the final tweet in the thread.
Enter Reynolds, the Golden Globe-nominated star of Hollywood blockbusters like Marvel’s Deadpool franchise, and an active, generous Twitter user.
According to an email from OPH, the actor has been following them since before the pandemic and reached out earlier this week to compliment their work.
They got to talking and OPH pitched him the idea for a video where he admits to being Bruce the intern. He agreed and shot it for free.
In the video, Reynolds suggests he tweets for OPH from time to time, but simply forgot to finish that particular post.
While he said there’s nothing he can do about his mistake now, what people can do is stick to the COVID-19 basics, such as hand-washing, masking, distancing and getting vaccinated when it’s their turn.
“We were, to say the least, delighted when Mr. Reynolds agreed to participate,” OPH said. “We appreciate that Mr. Reynolds took them time out of his busy schedule to help us share this important public health message.”

Meghan alleged in her interview that she and Prince Harry’s son was denied the title of prince at birth due to her biracial heritage.
Despite this, Archie remains seventh in line to the throne — ahead of Prince Andrew, the Queen’s second-eldest son.
Here’s who is in the line of succession when Elizabeth II’s time as the longest-reigning monarch in history comes to an end.
Charles, Prince of Wales
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s eldest son Charles, the Prince of Wales, is next in line to rule the Commonwealth, which includes Australia.
When he does, Prince Charles, who is currently 72-years-old, will be the oldest person to ever ascend to the British throne — the previous oldest ruler was William IV at age 64.
His wife, Camilla, currently goes by the title the Duchess of Cornwall.
When the pair married in 2005, Clarence House released a statement that she would have the title princess consort if Prince Charles becomes king.
William, Duke of Cambridge
The eldest son of Prince Charles and his first wife Princess Diana, Prince William is second in line to the throne.
His wife Catherine is currently the Duchess of Cambridge but will become queen consort and go by the title of Queen Catherine if William becomes king.
The couple’s three children are ahead of Princess Diana’s second son and Prince William’s brother Harry in the line of succession despite their young age.
George, Prince of Cambridge
Prince William and Catherine’s eldest child Prince George is third in line to the throne.
Historically, the first-born son of the monarch would be claimed as heir to the throne regardless of any older daughters.
Only when there was no son could a female child reign — as was the case for Queen Elizabeth II, whose father King George VI had two daughters.
In 2011, two years before Prince George was born, the succession laws were changed to give sons and daughters equal right to be heir.
Charlotte, Princess of Cambridge
The first daughter of Prince William and Catherine, Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne.
If her older brother Prince George has children, they will precede Princess Charlotte in the line of the succession.
Louis, Prince of Cambridge
The second son and third child of Prince William and Catherine, Prince Louis is fifth in line to the throne.
Thanks to the change to the laws in 2011, Prince Louis does not skip ahead of Princess Charlotte in the line.
Harry, Duke of Sussex
Prince Charles and Diana’s second son, Prince Harry is sixth in line to the throne.
Before the birth of his nephews and niece, Harry was as high third in line to the throne.
Harry and his wife Meghan currently retain their royal titles as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex despite being stripped of their royal patronages and honorary appointments.
The pair stepped back from their roles in March 2020 and have a fractured relationship with the royal family following their revealing interview with Oprah earlier this month.
Archie, Master Mountbatten-Windsor
The first child of Harry and Meghan, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is seventh in line to the throne.
In their interview with Oprah, Meghan said Archie, who was born in May 2019, was denied the title of prince at his birth, something she suggested could be due to her biracial heritage.
Due to a declaration made by George V, Archie will become a prince when Prince Charles becomes king, as he will then be the son of a child of the monarch.
However, as king, Charles would have the power to issue decrees to extend or reduce the number of titles on offer.
Meghan and Harry also revealed in the Oprah interview that they are expecting a second child, a girl — who, when born, will be eighth in line to the throne.
Andrew, Duke of York
Prince Andrew, the second son and third child of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II, is eighth in line to the throne.
He overtakes his older sister Princess Anne as an heir because the laws of succession gave preference to male children before they were changed in 2011.
Prince Andrew withdrew from public duties in November 2019 after a disastrous interview about his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The Duke of York had come under increasing scrutiny after footage was published in August 2019 by UK tabloid the Mail On Sunday showing him at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion in 2010, two years after Epstein had been convicted and jailed after pleading guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution.
One of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, said Epstein forced her to have sex with Prince Andrew at a London apartment in 2001 when she was 17.
Prince Andrew has previously denied any inappropriate relations with Ms Giuffre and said during the BBC interview he had “no recollection” of ever meeting her.
Last year, the Duke’s legal team denied claims he was not cooperating with US authorities’ investigation into Epstein and possible accomplices.
