Ryan Reynolds Reacts to Helen Mirren's Praise After Making Time's '100 Most Influential' List

Ryan Reynolds has landed a spot on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list!

Now, the 40-year-old actor – whose hit film Deadpool just got a release date – is responding to Helen Mirren‘s heartfelt tribute to him, which was included in the publication.

“Can the name be real?” Helen wrote. “It is such a perfect movie-star name, like something that could be on a 40s marquee. How fitting, then, that Ryan Reynolds has the same loose-limbed charm as Carey Grant and Jimmy Stewart.”

“[He’s] kind, committed, generous, especially to women,” she went on. “He likes [women] in the most simple, direct, unadorned way: for their humanity (how very appropriate that he is the father of two girls).” (Read her full tribute here.)

“What in the..?” Ryan responded on Twitter. “Thanks #Time100 — and Helen Mirren for the kindest words. My real name is Summershank Melon-Wad.”

“Thank you #Time100 For including me in this ridiculous list of brilliant and sometimes terrifying people,” he added on Instagram. “And the gorgeous @helenmirren … I thank you from the heart of my bottom for the kindest words ever. They will be sung by a children’s choir at my extravagant funeral.”
