Ryan Reynolds' daughter James wants to follow in her parents' acting footsteps.

The Deadpool star shares the four-year-old with wife Blake Lively, and revealed the youngster's career aspirations during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

"She wants to be an actor," he said. "I'm fine if she wants to be an actor. Go ahead. You know, in school, do after school stuff like that. That's all fine."

He added that although he's keen for James to carve her own path, he's reluctant to brand her as a child actor just yet.

"Right now it's every day is like a recital, she's singing songs, she's doing little plays at home, but being a child actor in movies and stuff, that's a whole other ball of wax," he continued. "I tried to explain to her, that's a huge burden on your nervous system. Having to process all of that attention and information. Also, you develop all of these unhealthy coping mechanisms."

He jokingly added, "I was like, what's cheaper and easier is let's skip showbiz and enroll you right into cocaine. Because showbiz is not good for kids! I feel like we should know this by now."

The couple also welcomed daughter Ines in September, 2016, and earlier this year had their third daughter – but have yet to announce the tot's name.
