Ryan Reynolds should win the award for funniest dad of all time — even if the award doesn't exist. The father of two young daughters — with whom he shares with wife Blake Lively — tells some pretty hilarious stories about them to the point where it sometimes feels like he gets paid to write them. His jokes are funny, on point, and relatable. Seriously, even Ryan Reynolds' latest joke about his daughter proves he's maybe the funniest dad on the planet (or maybe just in Hollywood).
Reynolds is currently promoting his newest film, The Hitman's Body Guard, and has a lot of stories to tell about the production of the film, like ones about bringing his 2-year-old daughter James to set. Reynolds told People that bring-your-toddler-to-work day, especially on a movie set, can be a little difficult:
I like having my kids at work. But you wanna walk that line because a lot of other crew members would love to have their kids at work, too. You want them around, but you don't want to feel like you're imposing them on set.
Reynolds' kids are too adorable to be a burden. But even James, according to Reynolds, has a little too much fun with craft services while visiting her dad during filming. "My daughter is like a dime-store thug on set," Reynolds told People. "She'll open her jacket and there's like, a hundred tootsie rolls inside."
I'm willing to excuse Reynolds' misuse of the word "thug" (I'm giving him some serious side eye right now) just to imagine his adorable toddler daughter hoarding tootsie rolls while Reynolds tries to prepare for a dramatic line reading on set.
But this won't be the first (or the last) time that Reynolds tells some hilarious stories about his daughters. Just take his Twitter account, which is a prime example for just how hilarious of a father he is:
If dad jokes were a currency, then Reynolds' tweets are gold. But according to Lively, fans should really take his parenting tweets and stories with a grain of salt. Lively told Glamour last month, according to People, that his tweets about his daughters just might be a little fabricated (sorry to spoil the fun!) but it makes her love him even more:
He may as well work for the Enquirer. When he says "my daughter," he's never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario. He'll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I'm so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I'm in love with him most of the time, but especially that.
It's OK, I never bought the tweet about burying his daughter in the sand and abandoning her in the first place (even if it is funny) — but I have to believe Reynolds' most recent story about his daughter. His joke is (literally) too sweet not to be true.
