Ryan Reynolds is known for his dark sense of humor and candid comments on virtually everything, but especially his family life. As you can imagine, the quarantine has locked Ryan at home without a plan B, giving him an endless source of inspiration for cracking jokes 24/7.
So when Stephen Colbert called to check on the actor for his Late Show: At Home edition, Ryan had a lot to tell. It turns out, the Deadpool star is mostly drinking and doing girly stuff with his three daughters, like sewing dresses from tissue paper. But Ryan knows that whatever the future holds, he has to stay firm. In the worst-case scenario, “I would not hesitate to eat my children,” he told Stephen. Let’s take a look at the best bits from the hilarious interview right down below.

On March 17, Reynolds announced that he and his wife Blake Lively are donating 1 million to Feeding American and Food Banks Canada. These two organizations help older adults and families with low income that have been brutally impacted by current crisis. “Take care of your bodies and hearts,” Reynolds said in his statement. “Leave room for joy. Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection.”
But the A-list couple’s generosity doesn’t end there. It has been reported that Ryan and Blake have also made a solid donation of 400,000 dollars to New York hospitals. Four of the most affected that will receive their donation are NYU Hospital, Mount Sinai, Northern Westchester, and Elmhurst. According to the New York Times, New York City alone accounts for a staggering 51,810 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 1,562 fatalities.
And there’s a lot going on in Reynolds’ bunker
One more donation of 4,000 dollars, Reynolds dedicated to Edmonton’s Food Bank. Virgin Radio Edmonton shared a touching donation message on their Facebook account. “I happen to love Edmonton. This donation is in memory of Connor McGrath. Love, Ryan Reynolds,” the Deadpool star wrote.
Ryan met 13-year-old boy Connor in Edmonton four years ago through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Tragically, Connor died three months later from cancer. The same December, the actor dedicated his Critic’s Choice Award for Entertainer of the Year to the Sick Kids Foundation of Toronto. “They didn’t lose the battle, they started a fight and it’s up to us to finish it,” Reynolds said in his speech.
