Ryan Reynolds' Daughter James Wants to Be an Actor!

Ryan Reynolds is opening up about his daughter James in a new interview!

The 43-year-old 6 Underground actor talked about his and wife Blake Lively‘s daughter’s career aspirations during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (December 12) in New York City.

“She wants to be an actor,” Ryan said. “I’m fine if she wants to be an actor. Go ahead. You know, in school, do after school stuff like that. That’s all fine. Right now it’s every day is like a recital, she’s singing songs, she’s doing little plays at home, but being a child actor in movies and stuff, that’s a whole other ball of wax. I tried to explain to her, that’s a huge burden on your nervous system. Having to process all of that attention and information. Also, you develop all of these unhealthy coping mechanisms.”

He jokingly added, “I was like, what’s cheaper and easier is let’s skip showbiz and enroll you right into cocaine. Because showbiz is not good for kids! I feel like we should know this by now.”

Ryan also revealed that James, who is almost five, is “obsessed” with Jimmy!
