Ryan Reynolds Would Rather 'Drink Rabies' Than Fly With His Kids

The actor didn't mince words about his feelings on flying with his 2-year-old and 5-month-old daughters: He's not a fan.

Traveling with children is never easy. My kids are 14 and 11 and they still freak out about mid-flight turbulence and clogged-up ears. Plus, they fight over everything from who's sitting where to how much stuff has to be shoved under the seat in front of them—fun times!

Still, there is no greater torture than traveling with young kids. From folding up the double stroller to get through security, to trying to change a diaper when the "fasten seatbelt" sign is still illuminated, it's all just one big debacle. Which is why Ryan Reynolds—who has two little girls, James, 2, and Ines, 5 months, with wife Blake Lively—was literally speaking for every parent ever when, in a recent interview with "Good Morning America," he fessed up to his feeling about flying with the fam.

"I remember before I had kids, I was always like, 'God, that's hard,' the always-funny actor explained about flying with little ones. "Because you can see [the parents are] sweating and they're nervous because their kids are yelling and everyone's mad at them. I'm the same way. I would rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane with my two children. At 2 years old, they just have to rip all their clothes off and introduce themselves to everyone on the plane. It's just like, 'Please, can we land in a farmer's field?'"

Piping hot bowl of liquid rabies... Sounds about right. And while we don't know if liquid rabies is actually a thing, we'd totally be down to drink it with Ryan Reynolds if he asked us to.
