The actor was honored Friday by the university's Hasty Pudding Theatricals group as the 2017 Man of the Year.

Ryan Reynolds resisted when told to make fun of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady while being honored on the Super Bowl-bound team's home turf.

The Deadpool actor was roasted Friday night by members of Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals after being named the group's 2017 Man of the Year.

People magazine says Reynolds hesitated when told he had to make fun of Brady, responding, "You know we're in Boston, right?"

But he ultimately caved, taking a slight jab at Brady for his friendship with President Donald Trump. "Tom, I'm afraid your voting skills are as bad as ...," he said before trailing off, according to People's website.

The nation's oldest collegiate theatrical organization annually presents the award to performers who've made lasting and impressive contributions to the entertainment world.
