‘I think this opportunity will be wasted on him, like so many before him,’ the chisel-jawed actor quipped Wednesday on Today. 

‘He’s going to play it shy. He’s going to play it bashful, humble. If I know what I knew now, I wouldn’t. You got to seize the opportunity,’  said Reynolds on the show.  

He  speculated how he’d handle things different knowing what he knows today. 

‘If I got it now, I’m not saying I would leave my family, but they would need to go on without me,’ he joked.

Heartthrob: ‘Don’t blow this, Rudd,’ said the 45-year-old on the Today show on Wednesday. ‘If you are there, do not blow this opportunity. Run like the wind’

‘I would roam the world clutching my dog-eared People magazine, going from town to town, sewing my wild oats like some sort of nude, magical gardener. It would be amazing.’ 

Heartthrob Rudd, 52, rose to fame in the 1995 hit Clueless Barely alongside Alicia Silverstone’s ex-stepbrother Josh Lucas. 

People magazine named the ageless Ant-Man actor as Sexiest Man Alive on Tuesday.

Reynolds is currently starring in the upcoming Netflix action heist movie Red Notice alongside Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot. 

The Canadian-born actor is married to Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively, 34.  They have their hands full raising three daughters, James, six, Inez, five, and Betty, two. 

‘It’s absolutely mayhem,’ said Reynolds about raising three girls while on the show. ‘You’re just every day clinging by the skin of your teeth.’ 

The girls are giving him a run around, he said. 

‘I was always afraid I would have boys, but now that I have girls, I realize I should not have been afraid,’ he said. 

‘I should have wanted boys, as well. They’re just as rough,’ Ryan added.
