Sad Ryan Reynolds! The actor attended the premiere for his latest movie "The Captive" at the Cannes film festival on May 16, but after a disastrous screening, he was a no-show for the film's afterparty, a source tell Us Weekly.

The move came fresh off of Reynold's latest thriller getting not-so great reviews. Variety reviewed the film as "a ludicrous abduction thriller that finds a once-great filmmaker slipping into previously unentered realms of self-parody," adding the film "was greeted with a smattering of boos” during the Cannes screening.

The 37-year-old and his wife Blake Lively, who stunned at the premiere in a Gucci strapless gown, instead opted for a "low-key late-night snack," the source says.

The couple were spotted at Hotel Martinez terrace restaurant around 1 A.M., while the rest of "The Captive" cast attended the afterparty.

A source tells Us, "Ryan definitely seemed a little on edge. Wouldn't be surprised if he skipped out on his party because the film is getting terrible reviews."

Reynolds "seemed preoccupied on his cell phone" while the duo dined at the restaurant but was still "really affectionate" with Lively, the source adds.

"[It] looked like Blake was trying to cheer him up a few times … she rubbed his arm like she was consoling him and kept whispering in his ear,” the source continues. "At one point, Ryan smiled … and leaned into her for a kiss on the lips."
