“I genuinely was not expecting this, I prepared nothing. So, I’m just going to focus on Tom Hanks,” the 40-year-old said while accepting the award for Best Actor in a Comedy for Deadpool. “No really though, you’re a huge influence on me. My two-year-old daughter — the first full sentence she ever said was, ‘There’s no crying in baseball.’ I’m not even kidding,” Ryan added, referencing Tom's classic line from the 1992 flick A League of Their Own. Too funny!
