Ryan Reynolds to 'Details': Blake Lively & I Want a Big Family!

Ryan Reynolds to 'Details': Blake Lively & I Want a Big Family!

Ryan Reynolds gets his swagger back on the cover of Details magazine’s August 2013 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 36-year-old R.I.P.D. and Turbo actor had to share with the mag:

On the prospect of fatherhood with wife Blake Lively: “We’d love to have a big family. We both come from big families—my parents did four, Blake’s did five. A lot of people say it’s crazy, but we’ll only know when we’re there, you know? We’ll walk through that fire pretty happily, I think.”

On hoping he has at least one girl: “I’m terrified that I’m genetically predisposed to only having boys. That’s frightening. By the time I was 10 years old, and I’m not exaggerating, I knew how to patch drywall. There’s nothing my brothers and I didn’t put a hole in. We turned our home into a Wiffle house. That’s something I’m not looking forward to.”

On why he is evasive about his romantic life: “I don’t intentionally try to be evasive about that stuff. If you ask me to describe my relationship, I mean—words are too clumsy to accurately describe how I feel in that regard, particularly in an interview. It’s a strange thing. I understand the climate we live in and why people are curious. But it’s just tough and almost emotionally violent—for anyone, I think—to see your personal life summarized in a sentence.”

FYI: Ryan is wearing a jacket, sweater, shirt, and pants by Calvin Klein Collection on the cover.

    What do you mean you are being evasive about your romantic life? You have just given away some big chunks about your wife, family and fatherhood feelings?.?…

    I’m confused…

  • Q.

    So gorgeous, charming and witty!

  • Stella

    I love Ryan and Blake! They’re gonna have beautiful babies!

  • Emma

    So let me guess what the next story on them will be. That Blake Lively is expecting. So predictable.

  • Jess

    Is Blake pregnant? He’s really talking like she is.

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    Hilarious that they try to pretend that they are so private, yet:

    a) They manage to always be photographed even in the most obscure places
    b) He’s talking about his private life as if he’s speaking to a close friend.

    And then they complain that there is an invasion of privacy.

  • LOL

    How do they manage to be photoged in the most obscure place? You mean when she was doing public promo for Gucci in Shangai China so the press knew they were there. Or when they were in London for Gucci’s Chime for Change? Or when Ryan was working in Barcelona? I guess those places are truly obscure. It does not occur to idiots that if some celebs are snapped looking disheviled or unhappy in airports its cause paps got info off twitter as is increasingly common or everyday people used a phone.

  • Chace

    Poor Ryan the most he has ever said about his wife in any public forum – a few lines in a 4 page spread – and apparently it means he’s telling everything on his private life!!!!!!!

    @Anonymous: Ditto.

  • naughty

    He’s gorgeous. They’d better start the family now if they don’t want to break up soon.

  • Kelly

    I think Blake is pregnant too! Could explain why he has been going with her to all these different places and has babies on the brain.

  • Deanna

    He never spoke this way about Scarlett. Good for him! I really like Blake.

  • sheba

    He sounds very intelligent and sincere. He’s open, but not in a ‘spill your guts to your shrink’ kind of way. He doesn’t talk about past relationships, or make vague statements that can be misinterpreted or assumed to be about his ex’s. He takes care of his family. I wish there were more like him.

  • I

    I do think they are really private about their romance – they showed really select pics of their wedding and no one knows what her dress looks like.
    However she is a horrible actress except in a few roles.

  • NY Daily News

    Looking good Ry!

  • yep

    nice interview.

  • http://wolfdreaming Kay Blood

    Awesome guy. Love what he said in the interview piece. They’ll have gorgeous kids.

  • jess

    @sheba: Completely agree, he’s a lovely guy and just so happens to be absolutely gorgeous!
