Ryan Reynolds: Family gives me strength more than any man deserves

Ryan Reynolds said his wife, Blake Lively and their three daughters “gave me strength more than any man could ever deserve”.

The Canadian actor also thanked his family for supporting him “despite some rather questionable years” when he accepted the Audience Choice Icon award.

He was honored with the award for his contributions to film and television at the annual ceremony on Tuesday.

The actor, known for his Deadpool films and Wales-based documentary Welcome To Wrexham, was praised for his “unique ability to make fun” following the announcement.

This year’s People’s Choice Awards took place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, and was hosted by Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson.

Reynolds told the audience that there are too many people to thank throughout his career.

“But I would be remiss not to mention that everything starts with my family and ends with my family,” he said.

“To my mother, my three brothers…and my father, who left us a few years ago. Boy, if he could see all that’s going on, he wouldn’t be impressed with this stuff, he’d be stunned by his three little nieces.

“Wherever he is now. I promise you he might not watch the People’s Choice Awards.

He continued: “But to my original family, thank you for making me who I am.

“Thank you for not stopping supporting me, despite the rather questionable years.

“Blake and my girls, you are absolutely right – you are my heart. You are my hope, you are my happiness.

“I joke that family exhausts me but in reality you give me more strength than any man could ever deserve.”

He also promised fans that he and Lively would welcome their fourth child soon, prompting cheers and applause from the audience.

Elsewhere at the ceremony, Shania Twain and Lizzo were honored with special awards.

Twain, 57, was the recipient of this year’s People’s Choice Music Icon Award as well as the performer at the ceremony.

She’s covered a bunch of her greatest hits, including That Don’t Impress Me Much, Man! I Feel Like A Woman and the new single Waking Up Dreaming.

Receiving her award, Twain remembered her late mother and thanked her fans, telling them to “be your queen”.

She recalls some of her early forays into iconic fashion moments that made her “influenced in pop culture” with just “a pair of sharp scissors, (and) a great imagination”.

“I just want to say have fun, kids. Embrace your personality and your crazy ideas. Be brave,” she said.

“Remember that there is power in numbers, we are together.

“Love is love, and when a door slams in your face, run away, just run and jump in that door, and kick it down.

“Be your queen.”

Lizzo, 34, was awarded the People’s Champion and later won Song of the Year for her hit About Dam Time.

The pop star used the platform to highlight champions for important causes, inviting 17 women to take the stage to accept their awards.

The women represent social concerns including climate change, reproductive justice, affordable health care and police violence.

Elsewhere in Tuesday’s ceremony, Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, was named best drama film of 2022.

Kim Kardashian and her famous family have chosen the best reality show of 2022, with the show of the same name The Kardashians.

The ceremony is broadcast on the US network NBC from 2am UK time.
