Ryan Reynolds Praises Wife Blake Lively For Keeping Him ‘Sane’ Amid His Career-Related Anxiety!

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are quite the team.

Although Deadpool turned out to be one of the most popular films of 2016, the Canadian-born actor still had A LOT of anxiety about the project. Thankfully, Reynolds had his incredibly supportive wife by his side to help him through the stressful times. Awww!

During a candid chat with Variety, Ryan explained:

“By the time we were in [post-production], we’d been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for it. The expectations were eating me alive… Blake helped me through that. I’m lucky to have her around just to keep me sane.”

So we can only imagine the 40-year-old will be turning to the blonde stunner for more support as he is up for a Golden Globe this Sunday. Of course, Ryan’s gush-worthy sentiments about Blake come not long after The Proposal star’s Hollywood Walk of Fame speech where he called the Gossip Girl actress the “best thing that has ever happened to” him.

Still, the premiere of the superhero flick wasn’t the first time the father-of-two has struggled with anxiety. In fact, it appears his battle with the mental health disorder stems back to his childhood. The A-lister continued:

“I have three older brothers. Our father was tough. He wasn’t easy on anyone. And he wasn’t easy on himself. I think the anxiety might have started there, trying ├óΓé¼┬¿to find ways to control others by trying to control myself. At the time, I never recognized that. I was just a twitchy kid.”

We’re honestly so impressed with the superstar’s candor. Hopefully, Blake’s man isn’t feeling too anxious ahead of Sunday’s awards show — especially since he just snagged the Best Actor In A Comedy award at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards!
