Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ryan: I never took acting classes, but I knew I could do it based on the skill with which I lied to my parents on a regular basis!

    • Ryan: (on wanting children with wife Scarlett Johansson) I feel like I need to fulfill the genetic paradigm, the destiny of it. It definitely appeals to me.

    • Ryan: I won't ask a woman if she's pregnant unless the baby is crowning. We've all seen that happen, where you say, 'So, when are you due?' And there's just that blank stare.

    • Ryan: (on working with Julia Roberts in Fireflies in the Garden) I was so excited until I found out the scenes I have with her are when she's playing my mother. I was like, 'Couldn't we have a hot romance instead?' It's so sad. I have to tell my friends that I'm getting to act with the old Julia Roberts.

    • Ryan: (on the film, Smokin' Aces) It's the first set I've ever been on where people who weren't working on a particular day would just come by to watch and see what's happening. It was a pretty lively cast and for such a diverse group of people it was a surprisingly cordial and cohesive unit.

    • Ryan: It's a nice visual. I had just done Blade and I put on more weight for Blade and I thought I might as well use it so I kept it and added a little more. I wanted him to be a big bear.

    • Ryan: I've definitely done my share of debaucheries--and life threatening booze.

    • Ryan: Acting has given me a way to channel my angst. I feel like an overweight, pimply faced kid a lot of the time - and finding a way to access that insecurity, and put it toward something creative is incredibly rewarding. I feel very lucky.

    • Ryan: I just love bikes. It's not the safest passion to have, but I guess it's better than Russian roulette.

    • Ryan: I love doing six versions of any joke, so if they'll give me six takes, I'd love to do it.

    • Ryan: I just have like 30 guns on me at all times. My workout everyday was just kind of putting my wardrobe on, really.

    • Ryan: I believe in energy like dark energies. I believe that when a family moves into a house where six murders took place, there's going to be some bad juju in that house. But then again what the hell is wrong with you to be moving in that house to begin with?

    • Ryan: Four months after we finished shooting, I'd been in New Orleans shooting another movie and my agent and I were having a bite to eat - actually in London - and he's sitting there and goes, "Wow, I just can't believe how ripped you are."

    Ryan Reynolds is the best actor alive! Well, one of them. He's cute and funny and whether he has a beard or he's clean-shaven he's just gorgeous.
