Ryan Reynolds loves fatherhood, but quickly learned that it takes up a lot of your time!

Reynolds and his Life co-star Jake Gyllenhaal talked to ET's Carly Steel at the South by Southwest premiere of their new movie over the weekend, where the 40-year-old actor admitted that having kids has given him a little bit of anxiety.

"I think you're just more desperate in everything you do cause you're like," he shared. "'I've got 10 minutes to do this, and then I gotta get home for a thing, and a thing, and a thing...'"

"There's just no time anymore, so you're hardened by it," he added. "Anxiety, I think, that's probably it."

Yep, parenthood will do that to you!

Thankfully, Reynolds has the support of wife Blake Lively to lean on as the couple raises their two daughters, 2-year-old James, and 5-month-old Ines. Another thing the Deadpool star has -- bro companionship!

Gyllenhaal and Reynolds have really connected since working together on Life, and talked a little bit about their beautiful BFF-ness at the premiere.

"There's a certain harmony that comes when we're both together," Reynolds said. Gyllenhaal agreed, "It's a beauty that is unmatched pretty much anywhere, I would think."

"Though Garth Brooks may try his hand," Gyllenhaal jokingly added. "I don't think he would come close."

Clearly, these two enjoy their time together!
