Ryan Reynolds on Loving Life Without a Nanny: ‘I Have No Problem Waking Up …

BetrayedRyan Reynolds reveals ultimate betrayal.

Fatherhood is great, says Ryan Reynolds in his GQ cover interview. “A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around,” the 38-year-old told GQ. “I kind of got in front of it, which is good.Ryan Reynolds revealed in the October 2015 issue of GQ that he had to cut off one of his closest and oldest friends after the person attempted to sell photos of his baby daughter, James — get the heartbreaking details here.

His “weirdly endless supply of patience” — the most surprising thing for the man who “could sometimes have a bit of a short fuse” — isn’t even a result of hired help to take care of the couple’s daughter. “[It’s] not because I have a nanny or something like that. But when Ryan Reynolds was just 18 years old, he made the biggest gamble of his life: he left behind his native Vancouver for unforgiving, shark-infested Hollywood, wagering that he’d be able to make it big. That was like “death.” Numerous celebrity parents have sought to gain control over the constant media attention focused on their non-celeb children, even asking news media organizations to pledge they won’t publish pictures of children without their parents’ consent. A bad couple of weeks.” “I mean, I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught,” he said. “But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. Reynolds co-stars with Ben Mendelsohn (Netflix’s Bloodline, next year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) in Mississippi Grind, a tale of two compulsive gamblers who bond as they make their way down to New Orleans for a high-stakes poker game.

They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!’” “There isn’t really a conversation to have. His effortless ease into parenthood has been a balance of both nature and nurture for Reynolds, who, despite having a difficult relationship with his own father, is proud of his accomplishments so far. “I look at each of my older brothers, and they’re all fathers, and they’re all great fathers. Directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden (Half Nelson) – and available on demand and in select theatres this Friday – Mississippi Grind isn’t a typical Hollywood movie about gamblers, nor a typical road movie.

The Deadpool star has been considered one of the sexiest stars in Hollywood for years, but now the father-of-one is only interested in his passion projects and his family; he and Lively even decided to raise their daughter in a rustic home outside of New York City, away from the limelight. But I think it’s speaking to them as though the guy in that red suit is one of them, to some degree.” “It’s fun,” he continued. “That’s also why the film is budgeted the way it’s budgeted, is released the way it’s released, is allowed to be rated R, kind of all these things. And in terms of a story about the friendship between two men, it’s about as far as you can get from, say, an Adam Sandler and Kevin James comedy. “You mean, not like a completely homophobic, disgusting, trivialized relationship?” said Reynolds, in Toronto recently for Mississippi Grind’s Canadian premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. “I’m just theorizing, I’m no expert, but I would say they’re often turned into sitcoms,” Reynolds said, pointing to the stereotypes often seen in TV and movies. “Man cave! After some small roles, he got a starring gig on the sitcom Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, then broke out in film in 2002’s seminal college party movie Van Wilder. Since then he’s done romantic comedies (The Proposal, opposite Sandra Bullock), action thrillers (Safe House, with Denzel Washington), animated films (Turbo and The Croods), independent dramas (Buried, in which he spends the entire film in a coffin) and no fewer than four movies based on comic books: Blade: Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern and R.I.P.D. (Reynolds will reboot his X-Men Origins character in next year’s R-rated superhero flick Deadpool.) While he now calls New York home with actress wife Blake Lively and their eight-month-old daughter, he’s still a Canadian boy – and specifically a Vancouverite – at heart.

It seems to suit me pretty well.” Despite his love for his most important role ever, Reynolds is reluctant to rave about all of his daughter’s day-to-day doings — at least outside of the home. “I find it to be really obnoxious. In fact, every time I talk about my kid in public, I’m generally talking about how average she is,” he shares. “But at home, I’m like, ‘You’re a genius! Reynolds, who’s nearly as famous for his quick wit as he is for his good looks and acting resume, didn’t hesitate: Toronto is better because it’s colder. “It forces a community to have a great deal of character, because they’re forced indoors and now this is the birthplace of ideas and conversation,” deadpanned Reynolds. “And so when end days come, I feel like Toronto might prevail.

Because Vancouverites are going to be staring out at those gorgeous mountains and that ocean in some placid daydream.” The wise-cracking, foul-mouthed, hyper-violent mercenary Deadpool isn’t scared of very much. You just took a s— in your diaper that came out as a perfect musical note!’ ” He adds, “I don’t f—ing fall victim to it, because, especially celebrities, when they talk about their kid, they talk about their kid like they’re the Chosen One, or they’re the only people who have ever had a child.” That’s not to say Reynolds doesn’t completely understand the unconditional love that comes with having a baby. But Ryan Reynolds, who will play the comic book anti-hero in February’s R-rated Deadpool, knows one entity he dare not aggravate: the mighty Marvel machine. The actor admits he views his parents in a whole new light since the arrival of his first child. “Once you have a kid, you just think, like, ‘I can’t believe that another person did all this s— for me, that I’m doing for this person right now!’ Like, that somebody woke up in the middle of the night this many times just to wipe my ass,” he says. “It’s just profound to me. If the movie is successful, it’s a given that Deadpool will be an ongoing presence in Fox’s Marvel universe, likely interacting with the X-Men. “The biggest issue is timelines.

But now he’s just taking it day by day, learning the ins and outs of parenthood—and the subsequent baby products he has to learn to use at the risk of the online community. (He was once chewed out for putting James in a carrier improperly.) But since the X-Men cinematic timeline was reset with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 1980s, what does the presence of Colossus mean for the present-day incarnation of the mutant superhero team? “I know stuff. I can’t tell you, I wish I could,” said Reynolds. “It’s funny how upset they could get when you reveal elements of these properties that are not meant to be revealed. And yet at the same time it’s amazing how cavalier they are about saying, ‘Hey, by the way, don’t say a f—ing word about this or we’re going to have you killed.’ They don’t do that in the way you think they would.”
