Actor Ryan Reynolds says he has no plans to adopt

After returning from a recent trip to Africa to help build an orphanage, Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, 30, said that he has no plans to adopt. After returning from Malawi, Ryan joked,

Everyone asks when you come back, ‘Were you tempted to get a kid?’ "A) It’s not that easy, B) If I did get a kid, I’m the last person who should have one. I’d be the only person in the history of orphanages in which the kid actually asked to go back to the third world country.

Perhaps Ryan will change his tune in the future. He is rumored to be dating actress Scarlett Johansson, 22, who recently expressed that she would love to have children.

“third world country”?

nice one, ryan. ignorance is bliss, i guess. despite the fact that he jumped on the bandwagon for the cause du jour, Africa (the monolith which people make it into), he returns to the states equally ignorant and condescending.

clueless.

and i’m sure those “third world” children thank you for not (allegedly) illegally separating them from their families, ryan, a la madonna.
