Remember when Samuel L. Jackson read the book, Go the F*ck to Sleep, on video? That combination was the best thing since peanut butter and chocolate, right? Well I got the chance to tell him how much I loved it during an interview with him and Ryan Reynolds for the upcoming animated feature, Turbo. (He and Ryan are a couple of the voice talents behind the film.) Not to be outdone by Jackson, Ryan Reynolds jumped in to volunteer to tell my baby to go the f*ck to sleep.
I'm not sure Reynolds knew about the book I was referring to, but I have to admire his can-do spirit. And moms? He's extending this offer to all of you. Book your appointment now.
"I'll tell your baby to go the f*ck to sleep, personally," Ryan told me. "I'm visiting homes throughout the Midwest next week, and I'm heading south after that." Are you ready for this GTFTS national tour? Roll out the red carpet, you and your "well-armed husbands," as Ryan put it.
It's an incredibly generous offer of Ryan. I know he's busy promoting his films this summer. But I don't know ... I'm not sure kids would respond to his authority the way they would to Sam Jackson. He just seems like a nice guy, know what I mean? But hey, I think you'd all like any excuse for him to come over. So you should welcome him in anyway.
Of course he's kidding! But considering how many babies he's planning with Blake Lively, maybe he should get his hands on Go the F*ck to Sleep and start working on his delivery.
Turbo opens Wednesday, July 17.
Would you like Ryan Reynolds to come over and tell your baby to go the f*ck to sleep?
