For all of Ryan Reynolds’ work in Hollywood, it may come as a surprise that he is actually Canadian. For his contributions to entertainment as a native Canadian, which puts him alongside other celebs from the country, such as Justin Bieber, the Library and Archives Canada named Reynolds a national treasure in 2022.

The actor grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, as the youngest of four brothers. As Reynolds put it, “my household that I grew up in wasn’t overly awful in the grand scheme of things, certainly as compared to some people,” he told the “SmartLess” podcast. One way he stood out in the big family was his sense of comedic timing. Even at a young age, Reynolds knew he had a special gift at getting people to laugh. “I knew I wasn’t Robin Williams funny, but I was good at using things around me to diffuse a situation, making myself the butt of the joke,” he told The Guardian

To practice his comedic skills, Reynolds joined his school’s improv team. While at home, Reynolds admitted to GQ that he and his brothers “basically did everything short of setting their own home on fire every single day of their lives.” The actor also developed friends that would stay with him into stardom, although one turned out to be no friend at all after trying to sell private photos of Reynolds to news outlets. Reynolds confronted his buddy and ultimately ended the relationship because the betrayal was “devastating.”
