Ryan Reynolds is featured in the March’s issue of Men’s Health magazine.
On losing his father:
“In my dad’s dying moments, we were making him laugh. We were all in there together, me and my brothers, just joking with him. And of course we end up busting each other’s chops. I recommended that the doctor raise Dad’s dose of Dilaudid in order to make my other brother more tolerable. It wasn’t a bad way to go. If I could have the same death as my father, I would do it right now.”
On becoming a parent:
“During those first six months, it’s amazing that you find a way to keep going. Just the lack of sleep, and the hallucinations. F**k peyote. You want to trip balls? Have a kid and see what it’s like to be awake for a month straight. You’ll have moments where you’re like, ‘Did I really ride a unicorn to work? I’m pretty sure I didn’t, but I don’t know. Was Willie Nelson cradling my testicles this morning? It probably wasn’t him, but let me check his tour schedule just to be sure.’ ”
