Vancouver (AP) - Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds (44) does not want a street to be named after himself.

A radio station in Vancouver, the actor's Canadian hometown, had launched a corresponding petition with a wink, which quickly attracted a lot of attention on social networks.

Usually the city only names streets after celebrities who have already died, but Reynolds still deserves it, the radio station said.

Reynolds, who became known with films like "Green Lantern" and "Deadpool", rejected the proposal via the short message service Twitter: "That's very nice, but definitely not," wrote the actor who is married to colleague Blake Lively and has three children.

"When the traffic is bad, everyone would say," It's chaos on Ryan Reynolds "or" Everything is backed up on Ryan Reynolds ".

My brothers would have had too much fun with that. "
