Ryan Reynolds is dead(pool) serious about these trick-or-treating rules.
The Proposal star issued a warning—a red notice, if you will—to his and Blake Lively's four kids that he won't stand for their Halloween costumes going against SAG-AFTRA's guidelines on what outfits actors should wear amid the ongoing Hollywood strike.
Variety reported that the union released instructions for its members to "celebrate Halloween this year while also staying in solidarity" with the protests, suggesting they "dress up as characters from non-struck content, like an animated TV show" instead of recent blockbuster films like Barbie.
In response to the outlet, Ryan, 46, joked that he'll be honoring their proposal by calling out his 8-year-old daughter James for crossing picket lines.
"I look forward to screaming 'scab' at my 8 year old all night," Ryan tweeted. "She's not in the union but she needs to learn."
In August, Blake and Ryan donated $1 million to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, which provides emergency financial assistance to performers on strike. (Other couples to each give the eye-popping sum were George and Amal Clooney; Luciana and Matt Damon; Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness; and Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.)
Although Blake and Ryan are backing up other actors in their industry, they aren't too thrilled with the idea of their kids following in their footsteps into acting.
As Ryan quipped on Today in 2015, "I worry that my daughter's going to want to go into show business!"
"You worry about really stupid stuff," he added. "And you sorta sit there and go, 'Oh gosh, is she gonna wanna do this?' I like to whisper in her ear, like, really normal everyday jobs... 'You're going to be a flight attendant...a barista...Just normal, wonderful jobs that you can have a nice, normal life.'"
