Ryan Reynolds' baby girl knows her dad when she sees him -- Deadpool costume or not.

The handsome 39-year-old actor recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, when he talked about his 1-year-old daughter James with his wife, actress Blake Lively.

"She is running around talking and having a ball," Reynolds said. "She sees me all over the place, because right now the Deadpool advertising is everywhere. So when we go to New York City it's on top of the cab and she'll be like, 'Dada. Dada. Dada. Dada.' I don't know how she -- I mean, I'm in a mask -- but yeah, she knows that's me."

Obviously, baby James is too young for Reynolds' latest R-rated film, which features a memorable naked fight scene. Reynolds said filming the much talked-about scene was every bit as awkward as it sounds.

"You have a little talk with the crew at the beginning of the day," he explained. "You just say, 'You guys, you're going to see things that you shouldn't see.' And you just kind of go for it."

"I kind of got an idea of what it's like to maybe work in the adult film industry," he also joked. "By lunch time you're just sort of like, you know, 'Oh, Greek salad's good isn't it?' Just totally nude standing at the line. You just lose that sort of filter there. I'm not above taking my clothes off for money, that's the bottom line."

When ET caught up with Reynolds earlier this month, he exclusively revealed the most romantic thing he's done for Lively.

"I've done things where I've like flown halfway across the world to just see my wife for a day," he shared, "because you've got to do that."

The former Gossip Girl star also, apparently, had no problem with the sex montage in Deadpool.

"She knows as well as I do that these scenes are never sexy to film, they just look sexy in the movie," he said.
