Chris Farley Still Rules

June 11, 2008

Howard said that Alanis Morissette would be coming in later in the day, and he hoped to talk to her about her break up with her former boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds. Artie said he could’ve warned Alanis about Ryan, as they worked together on “Dirty Work.” Ryan was dating “an older woman…who could help his career” at the time, and while most of the crew knew not to make fun of him, Chris Farley hadn’t gotten the memo. When Farley showed up on set, he mocked Ryan mercilessly and repeatedly called him “Ryan Tinkerbell.”
