Ryan Reynolds may be able to afford first class seats, but he’d do anything rather than travel with his children.
The 40-year-old actor—who has two young daughters with Blake Lively—has revealed he is every parent (and passenger) in the whole world when it comes to traveling/enduring kids on a flight.
He told ABC’s Good Morning America: “I would rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane with my two children.
“I’ve always had empathy for parents especially like [during] flying. Before I had kids, I was always like, ‘God, that’s hard.’ You can see [the parents are] sweating and they’re nervous because their kids are yelling and everyone’s mad at them.
“At two years old, they just have to rip all their clothes off and introduce themselves to everyone on the plane.”
The Deadpool star and Shallows actress have two-year-old James, and six-month-old Ines.
Reynolds is currently promoting his new film Life, a sci-fi horror about an international space crew discovering life on Mars. He co-stars with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson.
He told the anchors on Good Morning Britain that Blake and Jake have now become close friends because, not only do their names rhyme, but they’re also keen cooks in the kitchen.
“Blake, my wife, is very good at cooking, and Jake might be just a little bit better,” he admitted. “He can throw down. It gets very competitive between the two.”
I don’t mind being the judge.
