Ryan Reynolds really doesn't want a street named after him

Vancouver, Canada - Ryan Reynolds knows exactly what would happen if a Vancouver street was named after him. And he really doesn't want to deal with the unintended consequences.

Kiss Radio, a local Vancouver station, recently launched a petition to name a street after the 44-year-old, who was born in the city. The suggestion sparked a lot of attention on social media.

This honor is usually reserved for celebrities who have already passed away. But the station claims Reynolds "deserves to have a street named after him (or at least a lane)."

But the actor, famous for his portrayal of Marvel character Deadpool, doesn't see it that way. In fact, he would prefer it if the whole idea was dropped. But why is Reynolds so against it?

"Very kind but hard pass," he wrote on Twitter, explaining his opposition.

"If traffic sucks everyone will say, 'Ryan Reynolds is a mess' or 'Ryan Reynolds is really backed up.' My brothers would enjoy this too much."

It's a "hard pass" from Reynolds

The Change.org petition was started by Kiss Radio's The Kevin and Sonia Show and the signatures keep pouring in, in spite of – or maybe because – Ryan Reynold's misgivings.

It looks like his three brothers might be getting some grade-A joke material.
