Ryan Reynolds decided to open up about his personal issues during a new interview. The star claimed that he battled anxiety and revealed that he had to deal with a lot of stress while he was filming Deadpool.
The famous actor made the revelations during an interview with GQ. Ryan Reynolds said that he experienced anxiety after he finished working at Deadpool’s filming. “When it finally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown. I literally had the shakes,” the actor said. “I went to go see a doctor because I felt like I was suffering from a neurological problem or something. And every doctor I saw said, ‘You have anxiety.'”
The star claimed that he dealt with a lot of stress because he wanted his work to be great. “I say this with the caveat that I completely recognize the ridiculously fortunate position that I am in. But the attention is hard on your nervous system – that might be why I live out in the woods,” he claimed. “And I was banging the loudest drum for Deadpool. I wasn’t just trying to open it; I was trying to make a cultural phenomenon.”
And without a doubt, Ryan Reynolds’ fears were unfounded, as finally, the movie was a huge success. “There’s a certain vindication that comes with that, especially because the studio – granted, under different regimes – for years just kept telling us to go f*** ourselves sterile,” the actor said about the amazing success of the movie. And the actor definitely deserves all the appreciation for his work.
Ryan also opened up about family life and revealed the exact moment when he realized that his wife Blake Lively was the one. That moment came after he and Blake spent a great night together. The actor also said that he always wanted a traditional American family and his dream turned out to be true. “I mean, I always imagined that would happen, and then it happened. Every idiotic Hallmark-card cliché is true,” the Hollywood star revealed. He and Blake have two children together.
