One of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, Ryan Reynolds’ roles in Deadpool and Green Lantern films earned him clout.
His recent movies, including Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw and Pokemon Detective Pikachu, have done exceptionally well at the box office.
Aside from his unusual looks and flamboyant demeanor, the actor ranks among the celebrities who have succeeded in the film business without relying on Hollywood bigwigs.
There is a rumor that Ryan Reynolds is Burt Reynolds’ son. But where is the truth in this?
Here are the facts.
Is Burt Reynolds related to Ryan Reynolds?
No. The two are not related. They only share a name.
Burt Reynolds and Ryan Reynolds are both famous actors. Burt was born on February 11th 1936, while Ryan was born on October 23rd 1976. This means that there is a forty year gap between them.
While they have similar names and pick significant roles to play as characters in movies, they are not related.
There has been speculation around whether or not this could be true since they do look alike, despite their age difference (Ryan is more than 40 years younger).
However, Ryan Reynolds’ most recent movies prove that he does indeed share something in common with Burt Reynolds. They both share immense box office success.
Yet, Ryan has yet to match or surpass what Burt accomplished during his prime years. Although it remains unclear whether this will happen anytime soon, fans continue to cheer him on. As he continues working long hours and enduring grueling physical training for upcoming roles, we wish him the best.
Ryan Reynolds’ Doppelganger
In an exciting twist of events, one celebrity actually claimed that they are Reynold’s doppelganger. You could never guess who- Kate Beckinsale!
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, the famous English actress joked:
“I look exactly like Ryan Reynolds,” she said in the interview. “Like in a shocking way. Like sometimes I see a bus going by with a poster on, and I think, ‘Damn, I look hot. Wait, it’s not me.
Reynolds himself admitted to Beckinsale’s claim, saying that seeing her was like looking in a mirror.
But do they really look alike? It is hard to tell!
