Ryan Reynolds was named one of GQ‘s Men of the Year. For obvious reasons. As GQ points out, he was always handsome and charming, but then Deadpool happened. Add in his happy marriage to Blake Lively, their two children and you almost have to hate him — or at the very least, be kind of jealous of him — because that’s a lot of good things happening to one dude.
But then Ryan opens his mouth — and brilliance flies out. And that hate/jealousy scatters almost as fast as the expletives he spouts. Because you know what’s better than a handsome, charming, superstar actor, loving husband and cool dad of two? One that’s hilarious and knows how to make fun of himself. There’s self-deprecating, and then there’s Ryan Reynolds. Oh, and did we mention Canadian? Yeah, that too.
So much goodness in two minutes and 12 seconds, right? Poor, poor, resentful Gordon. And that Jake Gyllenhaal cameo? Amazing. THIS is why we’ve loved Ryan since Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place. Reynolds is the guy, the dude, the MAN.
