So, I've loved Ryan Reynolds since the days of Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, and now he's, like, a movie star. Ry stars in the new movie Definitely, Maybe, about political consultant Will Hayes, who tries to explain his past relationships to his 11-year-old daughter Maya, played by Abigail Breslin. He changes the names of all his previous girlfriends, played by Rachel Weisz, Isla Fisher and Elizabeth Banks, so his little girl can try and figure out which turned out to be her mom.
Kind of like How I Met Your Mother, I guess.
Anyway, Ryan told this story to Britain's Radio One, about meeting Abigail. It's totally cute and I'm totally going to see the film. It comes out on Valentine's Day. Enjoy!
"I took Abigail out for the day to see if we got on or not. She wanted to go to the museum of Natural History in New York and look at the turtles. I felt like I was 12 when I walked in and 30 when I left. We were there forever. Then she dragged me to a toy store. I was longing for the sweet release of death by the third hour of this. I thought, 'I will just buy the kid whatever she wants.' She said, 'I will take that stuffed animal.' I took it and walked to the till and gave the guy my credit card. As we were walking out I checked my receipt and it was $300 - for a stuffed animal! - I couldn't believe it. I said to Abigail, 'This was a $300 giraffe. Did you realize that? You could buy a real one for less!' She said, 'Oh wow!' Then her mother came up and that is when I fell in love with her. "She told her mom, 'Ryan bought me a $300 stuffed toy - what an idiot!' From that moment on I was helplessly in love with this little girl."
