Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds covers the September issue of Men’s Health and opens up about life with wife, Gossip Girl alum Blake Lively, and their two daughters — James, 2, and Ines, 10 months.

On his cooking skills which could start a “structure fire”: “I am not innovative in the kitchen. The firemen will kick down our door, take my wife away, and give her a better life.”

On his favorite cheat meal: “Is it really unhealthy if it makes you so happy? Patsy’s Pizza…There’s a Patsy’s Pizza up in Harlem that’s pretty much the best pizza…on the whole planet.”

On his good pal & Wolverine star: “Hugh Jackman has a dedication to his craft that I’m afraid I don’t share,” Reynolds said about the Wolverine diet, which reportedly included some 2 a.m. meals in order to achieve a 6,000 calories per day. “If I’m up at 2 in the morning, it’s because something has gone terribly wrong.”

On his funny tweets about their kids: “I’ve certainly said things online where I’ve thought, oh boy, I’m fortunate that there’s some precedent for me acting like a jackass. If I were somebody like, Condoleeza Rice, it might be a bit different. But you have to set precedents at some point. The Internet is so hostile, so many people have so many opinions, I have no problem sounding like a hot bag of ignorant shit if it’s going to make people laugh a little bit. That’s what Twitter’s for. 140 characters? That’s for jokes. I take fatherhood seriously. I just don’t take the perception of it seriously.”

On the greatest prank he ever pulled: “A friend of mine left town for a week – when he was gone, I painted his entire office puce…we painted everything in his entire office that color…the inside of his desk, every pencil, every pen, everything.”
