Despite the fact that Ryan Reynolds's daughters, Inez and James, have a dad who's a famous actor, the two don't get to see their dad on the big screen all that often. "They know Deadpool is their dad, they haven't seen it so they're not fully invested in it; for some reason, Pokémon is like catnip to children," he told Extra. "This is the first movie I have had that they are 100 percent invested in and psyched to see. I don't think they fully understood that that is me."
And while his children are aware that their dad is an actor, visualizing him as Pikachu might be a little challenging. "My daughter James said I sound like him," he explained. "She said, 'You sound like Detective Pikachu!' and I didn't really acknowledge it, was just like, 'Really? Tell me more about that.' I want to leave it as a surprise to them. We will all go see it opening day and then I will let them know it's me."
The 42-year-old dad added that he just can't get enough of his girls. "I just think they are going to literally separate their own eyeballs rolling them around me." He added, "When they decide to go away to college, I'm going to be that guy, 'That's so funny, I'm going to NYU, too!' I'm going to be so needy. I love being around them — it's the best thing in the world." Make sure you check out Pokémon: Detective Pikachu when it opens on May 10!
