VIDEO: Ryan Reynolds Wasn't Sure If His Daughter Was 'Really Psyched' About His Super Bowl Ad, Or Considered It 'Her Worst Nightmare'
"She just went, 'Dada? Dada?' " Reynolds tells PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle
Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is opening up about country life with wife Blake Lively and raising their little girl, James. Subscribe now for everything about the Sexiest Dad Alive in this exclusive interview, only in PEOPLE!
Is Ryan Reynolds‘ 13-month-old daughter a fan of a town called “Ryanville” – or does she dismiss it as a community filled with “useless boobs?”
Even the Deadpool star himself isn’t sure.
Reynolds, 39, said he watched the Super Bowl at home with young James, and was intrigued by her reaction to his Hyundai commercial, which features a town inhabited exclusively by an assortment of Reynolds clones.
“She just went, ‘Dada? Dada?’ ” Reynolds told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio Deadpool special. “I couldn’t tell if she was really psyched about it or it was her worst nightmare, just like 12 versions of me in this one commercial.”
Although the commercial highlighted some of the reasons he was once crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, Reynolds said his daughter was not quite as awed by the 30-second spot.
“All my daughter saw were 24 useless boobs,” he deadpanned. “[She was like] ‘You’re no use to me. You’re dead to me.’ ”
Reynolds also joked about deciding to watch the Super Bowl from the couch, even though he scored a coveted ticket to the big game – and called participating in a Super Bowl ad “a badge of honor.”
“It was kind of surreal. I was at the Super Bowl for two days for the lead-up,” he explained. “I might be one of the only guys who’s like … ‘I’m going home to watch this on TV. I’m not going to waste the Super Bowl being there!’ ”
SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio Deadpool special will air this Friday at 2 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio – the same day Deadpool hits theaters.
