Ryan Reynolds Has a Solution For Parents of Kids Who Want to Watch Deadpool: Lie to Them

Ryan Reynolds continues to keep it real on his medium of choice: Twitter. The actor was recently asked by a follower and fellow parent for advice on whether or not she should allow her 4-year-old child to watch Deadpool β€” a famously violent antihero movie with very mature language. Ryan's advice? Just lie and put on Spider-Man instead.

No. Put on Spider-Man (from 2002) and tell him it's Deadpool. It's what I do with my kids. Remember to look him straight in the eye when you lie. Good luck. πŸ•· https://t.co/FbDhj69a7x

Ryan went on to joke that he does the same thing with his two daughters, 4-year-old James and 2-year-old Inez. He added, "Remember to look him straight in the eye when you lie. Good luck." Ryan will have to keep up his whole charade once he and Blake Lively welcome their third child later this year.
