8 times Ryan Reynolds trolled Vancouver, which is basically him who professes love

It’s sometimes hard to remember that a giant star like Ryan Reynolds actually grew up in Vancouver and has probably been to many of the same places that you visit.

Below SmartLess podcast, he even begins to recall his days working in the Safeway cemetery.

He’s clearly proud of his connection to Vancouver, and here are some examples of how he’s trolled the city in public – but with his unique sense of humor.

Since he did not want a street named after him

After a petition went around that a street should be named after Vancouver’s favorite guy, he passed.

His funny reasoning was that people would say things like “Ryan Reyolds is backed up!”

Honestly, good point.

When he gave his home school a backhand compliment

He gave a speech for the Kitsilano class in 2020, where he told stories about his time at school. He said it was even “the best thing that ever happened” to him until then.

In addition to cute.

When he said the Capilano suspension bridge was overrated

In an interview with CBC, Reynolds talked all about how much he loves the city and what he does when he’s there.

He said the first thing he does when he goes home is “take a cruise around the Stanley Park loop.”

He also said that his favorite place in BC is the Capilano River and the area around it.

On the other hand, he said the Capilano Suspension Bridge is “slightly overrated”, mostly due to the high price.

Overall, though, he said Vancouver is one of the best places to live on earth.

When he gave Vancouver an uncomfortably indulgent hug

After wrapping The Adam project, which was filmed in Vancouver, he posted on Instagram and thanked everyone – including the city.

“Also a lingering, uncomfortably indulgent hug to my beautiful hometown #Vancouver,” the post read.

When he called his old boss a Peruvian drug lord

In an interview with The Georgia Straight, Reynolds talked about where he used to work in his neighborhood.

“I worked at a restaurant in Kits,” he told them.

“I was a busboy, but no one ever ate there. I actually think I worked for a Peruvian drug lord. I had this violent boss who had a fuse that was minimal at best. I worked there during the day and then at night. I would work in the cemetery in a grocery store and throw fresh fruit at my colleagues, “he said.

It all comes back to Safeway.

When he became involved in local politics

When John Horgan called, he and Seth answered.

No matter what, it looks like he’s got Vancouver back.

When he offered to kidnap local talent

These Vancouver fans made an ad for Reynolds’ famous gin brand Aviation, and he loved it.

Reynolds commented on their post: “First of all, how on earth did you handle this?!? Incredible work. We may have to hire you. Or kidnap you? We’re still figuring it out. ❤️️”

Love that he supports other Vancouverites.
