If you want to read the whole article it is here, I would recommend it because it was more interesting than I thought. I have always liked Ryan Reynolds and honestly this is probably the most candid interview I have ever read for him.
In this article he opened up a lot about how much he loves being a dad. I honestly think about him and Blake just walking around being super parents. Just having a gorgeous little girl that looks like both of them, and living the perfect life. Okay, no one has the perfect life but I assume with these two it is pretty close to perfect in their little farm house just outside of the city.
Here are a few excerpts from the article that I found interesting.
On the best friend who betrayed him: “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. I kind of got in front of it, which is good. But it was a slightly dark period. A bad couple of weeks… It was like a death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out.”
On why the friend did it: “Just for money. I mean, I don’t think he thought he would ever be caught. But it’s a pretty narrow group of people that I would send photos like that to. They’re just, like, my closest family and my closest friends: ‘Here’s us in the delivery room!’… It was, like, so kind of shocking. There isn’t really a conversation to have. It’s just, ‘Oh, well, now I’m never going to see you or talk to you again, unfortunately.’ That’s kind of how it worked out.”
Were you like, “Next time you need a check, just ask”?: “Well, I think he’d asked for a check enough times where I was like, ‘There’s no more checks to be had.’ ”
On being a father: “I have no problem waking up five times in the middle of the night and changing diapers, and as exhausted as you get, I have this stupid grin on my face all the time. And that’s not because I have a nanny or something like that. It’s just us right now, and I love it”
Can you even imagine? You send one of your best friends a picture of your child and they try and sell the picture. I mean I am all for celebrities not wanting to show off pictures of their kids. Their children are going to have to deal with it forever, it isn’t a big deal if you’d like to keep it private. To have someone who seems to be extremely close do it? That is just beyond fucked up.
I am happy that Ryan is still getting the praise he deserves for his acting, although I would love to see him in some comedies again. ‘Just Friends’ is one of my all time favorite movies, and is more than just a little bit underrated.
Also, I am actually happy those pictures of his daughter James didn’t get leaked because I would probably be jealous of that baby. She was born with perfect genes.
