Ryan Reynolds Recalls The ‘Beautiful’ Way His Brothers Protected Him From Their Father After Getting His Ear Pierced Without Permission

Every teenager has rebellious moments that push against their parent’s authority, and The Adam Project’s Ryan Reynolds was no different. For a teenage Reynolds, it was getting an ear pierced. The only problem was that his strict police officer father was against it. While one might think they know how the situation ended up, things actually played out differently than expected. And as the Hollywood star explained, this was due to the “beautiful” way his brothers protected him after he went ahead and got his ear pierced without permission.

The Free Guy actor spilled all the details about the brother’s keeper moment while being interviewed on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman (via ET). The Canadian actor explained that he was 12 years old when he got the desire to get his ears pierced. He revealed his plan to one of his older brothers, who shared some honest thoughts on the matter. Speaking about his brother’s reaction, the Hollywood star recalled:

My brother said, ‘You’re going to die. You’re going to show up at dinner tonight and there will be a messy stabbing death because Dad is going to take one of the utensils and stab you.’
