The 'Deadpool' star - who has James, five, Inez, four, and Betty, one, with his wife Blake Lively - admitted it has been great being able to be with his family, but quipped that it also was a "negative" thing too.

Speaking on Today, he said: "I am not living paycheque to paycheque like so many people across the country are and the world but you know for me, the best - I would say obviously is the time spending with family, with my kids, having an incredibly concentrated amount of time with them during a period in their lives that I'll never get back ... If I'm to pick the worst thing, it's probably the incredibly concentrated amount of time I've had with my kids in a time that I'll never get back."

Meanwhile, Ryan previously insisted he loves being a "girl dad".

Asked what makes him the ultimate "girl dad", Ryan replied: "I love being a girl dad. I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would imagine ... I come from all boys. I have three older brothers. So for me to have three daughters has been such a ride and I love every second of it."

Ryan is one of the most in-demand actors in the world, but he makes every effort to spend time at home.

He said: "I try to be as present as possible. I shoot movies and my wife shoots movies and we go traveling all over the place and we just all go together. I think that that’s been the best part of it. We really don’t spend a lot of time apart. I get to spend a lot of time with my girls."
