Last year, Ryan chatted with PEOPLE on the set of his Sexiest Man Alive shoot, where he admitted that staying in shape these days takes a bit more work thanks to his son.

"We'll do the same workout, and the way he looks after compared to the way I look is really defeating," the star joked at the time.

After decades in Hollywood, Ryan also acknowledged that it's still a struggle to feel fully comfortable in his skin.

"I don't like aging. When I see the signs of aging, which is every day, it drives me insane. But there's nothing you can do, really," he said. "You can't prolong the inevitable. We're all going to age, if we're lucky enough, to last into our old age."
