Ryan Reynolds Thinks It's A Bad Idea To Rename Vancouver Street After Him
A Canadian radio station started an online petition to have a street named after the 'Deadpool' star.
Ryan Reynolds has taken a "hard pass" on calls to have a street named in his honour.
The 44-year-old actor has previously been described as Vancouver’s favourite son, but Ryan doesn't support 104.9 KiSS radio station's online petition to have a street named after him.
The petition notes that Ryan has "proudly helped elevate the positive profile of his hometown to a worldwide audience ... and we feel for all he's done for the community, he's entirely deserving of a street named after him".
The petition acknowledged that Vancouver usually "only names streets after people who have passed", but also pointed out that there had previously been some exceptions.
It added: "PLUS technically Ryan Reynolds is Dead(pool). We think we have a solid case here."
Ryan admits to being flattered by the suggestion, but he's still given the idea a "hard pass" on Twitter.
He said on the micro-blogging platform: "Very kind but hard pass. If traffic sucks everyone will say, “Ryan Reynolds is a mess” or “Ryan Reynolds is really backed up”.
"My brothers would enjoy this too much. (sic)"
In The Adam Project, Mark Ruffalo and Ryan star as a time-travelling father-and-son duo. The cast also includes Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saldana and newcomer Walker Scobell.
Ryan wrote on Instagram, "And away we go... shooting has begun on The Adam Project for @netflix. This is a dream cast and crew. Happy to be back in the sturdy arms of my friend, life coach and director, @slevydirect"
Ryan is currently in the animated feature The Croods: A New Age. — BANG
