Appearing on Good Morning America to promote his new film Deadpool 2, the 41-year-old actor jokingly likened child stardom to 'child abuse.'
'Mostly because I’m against child abuse,' he joked. 'Show business, for a little kid, that’s a crazy pursuit.'
Clarifying, Reynolds said: 'Acting is great. Theater school, that kind of [thing] — amazing. I don’t know why you would put your kid in show business.'
Ryan shares two daughters with his wife Blake Lively - James, 3, and Inez, 19 months.
