Ryan Reynolds Says His Mistakes Have Made Him a Better Parent To His Three 'Wild' Daughters

Ryan Reynolds got candid on stage while speaking at a discussion called “Creativity at the Pace of Culture” during the 2022 Cannes Lions held at the Lumiere on Wednesday (June 22) in Cannes, France.

The 45-year-old actor opened up with the crowd about learning from his mistakes and taking that knowledge and passing it along to his three daughters – Betty, Inez and James – whom he shares with wife Blake Lively.

“I’m a parent of three girls. They’re wild. I think they have rabies sometimes,” Ryan joked about his kids. “I’m like any parent – I’ll have a moment where I’ll just snap. It’s not so much what you do in the moment that’s interesting, it’s what you do afterwards.”

He then added that his “brutal mistakes” have given him insight and inspired him more than any of his professional successes; and it’s something he’s passing on to them.

“I used to tell my kids, ‘Don’t waste your mistakes,’” Ryan explained. “When you’re making mistakes it’s easy to sort of be absorbed by shame and sort of this idea that you’ve done something wrong, but you also have to look at it critically and use it as a stepping stone to learning something profound.”

Late last year, Ryan announced he was taking a break from making movies to spend more time with his daughters.
