Ryan Reynolds, People’s Sexiest Man Alive back in 2010, and now GQ’s Man of the year and one of their cover boys for their ‘Men of the Year’ issue, has revealed he had a nervous break- down after wrapping Dealpool.
The movie not only dominated the box office last February, but it also dominated Reynold’s nervous system.
In a new interview with GQ, Reynolds says he mentally collapsed after the movie wrapped. “I felt like I was on some schooner in the middle of a white squall the whole time. It just never stopped.” He continued, “When it finally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous break-down, I literally had the shakes.”
Ryan says he saw several doctors because he thought he was suffering from a neurological problem and every doctor told him the same thing, he was suffering from anxiety.
The reason might be because Dealpool took 11 years to make and the pressure to make that character translate was “hard” on Ryan’s nervous system. He really wanted that character to make a cultural phenomenon.
Now Ryan is working on the sequel to Dealpool and enjoying the process. He is also enjoying being the husband to Blake Lively and the daddy to two little babies.
