VANCOUVER - Vancouver police have confirmed that actor Ryan Reynolds was the victim of a hit and run in the parking lot of a downtown hotel.

Const. Brian Montague said in an email that the Vancouver-born Hollywood star was not injured in Friday's collision.

Montague had no further details about the incident.

"While walking, Ryan was struck by a paparazzi driving a car through an underground parking garage," publicist Leslie Sloane said. "The man fled the scene. Ryan is okay."

The Vancouver-born Reynolds has been in the city over the past several weeks shooting his new film, "Deadpool."

Reynolds has played everything from a superhero in "Green Lantern" to a romantic lead in "The Proposal'' and a CIA agent in "Safe House."
