The actor was almost speechless when asked about his on-screen kiss in 'The Adam Project.'
Ryan Reynolds can’t seem to explain his way out of this! During a recent Q&A for his latest Netflix film, The Adam Project, the actor was almost left speechless when a young fan asked him about his on-screen kiss with Zoe Saldana.
“In the scene where you were kissing the girl, was that real?” a young fan confidently asked. After gaining laughter from the panel, which featured the cast, Reynolds let out a “Whoa” before Jennifer Garner chimed in, “This is the best Q&A ever.”
The actor echoed his co-star's sentiments, adding, “This is the greatest Q&A ever.” When the hosts quipped that his wife, Blake Lively, did a great job throwing her voice to ask the question, the 45-year-old actor made sure it was not really her.
“Honey, what the...,” he joked. “I guess it was kinda, kinda real,” he said, before trying to figure out the right way to answer the question. “I didn’t mean it,” he added with shrug.
He continued, “This is the thing. I don’t know how to explain this to my own kids, but they watch this and they’re like, ‘Daddy, what are you doing?‘ Like it’s exactly the tactic I would use on them, not anger but disappointment."
“Great question though, the exit’s that way," he joked to the young fan.
In The Adam Project, which also stars Garner, Mark Ruffalo and Walker Scobell, Reynolds plays a time-traveler who crash-lands in the past and has to turn to his 12-year-old past-self to fix his ship and save the future.
During the film’s premiere, ET spoke with the actor, who talked about teaching his and Lively’s three daughters, James, 7, Inez, 5, and 2-year-old Betty, how to make the right choices. "I think I would be psychotic if I didn't want my children to at least, you know, try to do something right and with integrity," the father of three said.
"But my kids are 7, 5, and 2, so I'm not like, 'You gotta get better grades!' I mean, I'm just happy if they finished a bowl of cereal."
When it comes to their parenting style, the Free Guy actor joked that it’s "probably like a brown belt at this point?" Adding, "I don't know. We're working up the chain of command."
