Ryan Reynolds To Have Ottawa Street Named After Him


By Jamie Samhan.

Ryan Reynolds may be from Vancouver, but he is getting national recognition in Ottawa.

The “Free Guy” star will have a street named after himself in the Canadian capital.


While Reynolds was raised in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood, he did spend part of his youth in the Ottawa neighbourhood of Vanier.

“It’s clear that Ottawa does have a special place in Ryan’s heart,” Mayor Jim Watson said during Wednesday’s announcement.

Watson said that Reynolds passed on the message, “This means the world to me. Thank you on behalf of me and my entire family.”

Last year, Reynolds was honoured with the Governor General’s Award alongside Catherine O’Hara.

Reynolds also joked on Twitter that he has now changed his “daughter’s name to ‘Ottawa’.”

Reynolds and wife Blake Lively have made numerous donations to causes across Canada and the U.S., including the Ottawa Food Bank.
