Ryan Reynolds Urging Young People To Stop Partying Amid The Pandemic Is Peak Ryan Reynolds

“I hope young people don’t kill my mom. She wants to be out there cruising the beach for some young 30-something to go full Mrs. Robinson on. She is insatiable.”

Ryan Reynolds has answered a call for help to urge young people in his native Canada to stop partying during the pandemic and well, it’s peak Ryan Reynolds.

The Deadpool star responded to a request from British Columbia premier John Horgan, who has been trying to get the message out to young Canadians that Covid-19 cases have spiked in the province.

In a video from a press conference, shared on Mr Horgan’s Twitter page, he said: “This is a call out to Deadpool right now. Ryan, we need your help up here. Get in touch with us.”

The actor quickly replied with a voice message to Mr Horgan, which he shared on social media.

“I’m not sure it’s a great idea, frankly,” he began.

“I don’t think they want medical advice from guys like me, no sir. Unless it’s plastic surgery, which, a lot of people don’t know this, but I used to be Hugh Jackman.”

The actor added: “Young folks in BC, they’re partying, which is of course dangerous.

“They probably don’t know that thousands of young people aren’t just getting sick from coronavirus, they’re also dying from it too.

“It’s terrible that it affects our most vulnerable. BC, that’s home to some of the coolest older people on earth. David Suzuki (the environmental activist), he lives there.

“My mom, she doesn’t want to be cooped up in her apartment all day.

“She wants to be out there cruising Kitsilano Beach looking for some young 30-something Abercrombie burnout to go full Mrs. Robinson on. She is insatiable.

“I hope young people in BC don’t kill my mom frankly. Or David Suzuki. Or each other. Let’s not kill anyone. I think that’s reasonable.

Referencing his wife Blake Lively, who is best known for her role in Gossip Girl, he said: “I don’t think I’m the guy to deliver this message. I love parties.

“My favourite thing to do is sit alone in my room with a glass of gin and the first 32 seasons of Gossip Girl.

“That’s a party. Threw my shoulder out the last time I did that.”

Young people of Canada, consider yourselves told.
