Ryan Reynolds, the sexy star of The Green Lantern and a former People magazine Sexiest Man Alive, talked a bit about his Irish roots to The Irish Times while on the promo trail for his film.

Reynolds, a Canadian cutie for sure, told the paper that he’s Irish and has visited parts the country with his brother.

 “Yes. I’ve been to Dublin and Galway. My brother and I just toured around there for a while. We have relatives there, whom we completely avoided,” he says, joking about the last part.

It’s not the first time Reynolds, who’s in the process of divorcing another star, Scarlett Johansson, has spoken about his Irish background. While promoting his hit film The Proposal with Sandra Bullock a couple of years back, he told Movies.ie that with “brothers named Terry and Patrick, I’m pretty damn Irish!”

The luck of the Irish isn’t really helping The Green Lantern, though.  Yes, it’s grossed nearly $90 million after two weeks, but it cost more than $200 million to make and tons more to market, so recouping those costs is going to be tough.
