Ryan Reynolds Admits Having Kids Gives Him ‘Anxiety’

Ryan Reynolds isn’t going to sugarcoat parenthood for you.

Because apparently, having children is anxiety-inducing — even for movie stars!

The actor talked about being a dad at the SXSW premiere of his new movie Life over the weekend, and admitted that raising kids gives him a wee bit of anxiety.

Speaking to ET‘s Carly Steel the 40-year-old said:

“I think you’re just more desperate in everything you do cause you’re like, ‘I’ve got 10 minutes to do this, and then I gotta get home for a thing, and a thing, and a thing…'”

Reynolds confessed that all those fatherly “things” tend to add up, continuing:

“There’s just no time anymore, so you’re hardened by it. Anxiety, I think, that’s probably it.”

Yup, raising kids is quite time consuming!

At least the actor can count on wife Blake Lively to help raise his two daughters, 2-year-old James and 5-month-old Ines.

Reynolds can also lean on his Life costar and BFF Jake Gyllenhaal to make life’s anxieties go away. Gushing about their bromance since working on the film together, he said:

“There’s a certain harmony that comes when we’re both together.”

Gyllenhaal agreed, quipping about their friendship at the film’s premiere:

“It’s a beauty that is unmatched pretty much anywhere, I would think. Though Garth Brooks may try his hand. I don’t think he would come close.”

It’s great to know Ryan has an A-list support system to get him through the trials and tribulations of fatherhood.
