Ryan Reynolds Reveals That Wife Blake Lively Helped Him Through Deadpool Anxiety
They’ve long been regarded as being one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, and now Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are giving us all relationship goals as well.
Reynolds has revealed that he suffered from anxiety as his blockbuster film Deadpool was nearing its release date, fearing how his performance as the fast talking antihero would be taken by the audience.
“By the time we were in post[-production], we’d been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for it,” Ryan said. “The expectations were eating me alive.”
“Blake helped me through that,” Ryan said. “I’m lucky to have her around just to keep me sane.”
“There was a minute where I even thought, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t do the movie,’ because it had been this thing with such a build-up,” Ryan said at the Critics’ Choice Awards last month. “And she was the one that said, ‘You gotta do it. You absolutely have to do it. It’s your dream role. The role you’re meant to play. So you’ve got to get up there and do it.’”
“She’s been epic for me in every way.”
