We all need to take a moment to appreciate how awesome Ryan Reynolds is.
There are so many reasons why he is the best.
Most obviously, he was hilarious and a badass in Deadpool, and is pretty much the reason why the film is the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time; he’s married to one of the most beautiful women in the world; he keeps it real about the trials of fatherhood; and is just a really genuine guy (even when caught up in all the traumatising Hiddleswift drama).
We decided to pick out some of the actor’s finest Tweets from this summer because his posts from the last eight weeks alone are enough to prove Ryan for the absolute legend he is.
First up are some of the times he revelled in shamelessly promoting his movie:
Deadpool opens in Japan June 1st! As a famous Japanese man once said "Life is hard; even harder if you’re stupid." That man was John Wayne.

And then shamelessly promoted his wife’s movie:

When he related the all too real challenges of parenthood:
What's better than a 12 hour drive with a screaming 1 year old? Not including hepatitis.

My infant daughter's traumatized for life. 50 Shades of Grey = Worst fucking coloring book ever.

And recalled the more precious moments:
Totally caved and tossed my daughter the keys to the car. She looked really happy as they bounced off her tiny infant face.

@VancityReynolds what's the hardest part of being a parent?

Finding quality "me" time. Or explaining why Stalin is in hell. 1 yr olds are pretty dumb, so pictures help. https://t.co/cFP0HlDluJ

And who can forget, his sincere responses to die-hard fans:
@VancityReynolds hey is your dad a baker cause you got nice buns ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ”«

My dad's not great at baking because, somewhat ironically, he was cremated. https://t.co/Imyw25hYDN
