Natalie Martinez only had good words about "Self/Less" co-star and love interest Ryan Reynolds.

"[Ryan] made everything kind of easy. He's worked forever. It was fun and interesting," Martinez said of acting alongside Reynolds, as quoted by a report from Bustle. "I've never experienced those Hollywood drama-diva, crazy people on the set. I've never experienced someone who's like throwing a fit or made it worse or harder for another actor. I've kind of fortunate. He was really funny and great in every scene and nice. It was cool."

"Self/Less" centers on a billionaire industrialist, Damian Hale (Ben Kingsley), dying of cancer, Bustle wrote. To continue living, he undergoes a medical procedure that will enable him to transfer his consciousness to a healthy body. Things start to go awry when Damian, now called Edward (Reynolds), starts being plagued by ominous images, prompting him to go on a mission to know where his new body originated from.

Also starring in the Tarsem Singh film are Matthew Goode and Michelle Dockery, Bustle noted.

Martinez, 30, also revealed that she wished to be paired up with Reynolds in Marvel's "Deadpool," but she admitted that the idea would be absurd.

"I think being another love interest again... We would've been Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal," the Cuban actress quips, as reported by the news outlet. "[Ryan] said how many movies he's been in and it's some crazy-ass number. I'm just like wow, because he really has been, I think, in over 100 films."

Martinez also had acting credits in 2008's "Death Race," the critically acclaimed "End of Watch," and CBS' "Under the Dome." She will next appear in 2016's "Message from the King" and in this year's TV movie titled "Warrior," Bustle added.

Speaking about the movie, Reynolds shared some difficulties he and Kingsley encountered when it comes to portraying their characters.

"It had to be more intuitive, because Ben shot a lot of his stuff at a different time than I did; the lion's share of his work was after I'd completed photography," the 38-year-old actor said, as quoted by Time. "It was a little difficult to figure that stuff out, and we did the best we could."

Reynolds also said that "Self/Less" is an interesting approach on the wealthy and powerful people's ability to buy their "way out of anything, including death," Time reported.

He continued, "I think science fiction is great when it tackles things that we deal with. I also loved the idea of hubris, and this movie brought that to the forefront."

"Self/Less" premieres in theaters on July 10. Watch the trailer below.
