Ryan Reynolds may be the picture of confidence onscreen, but once the camera turns off the actor says he’s often a nervous wreck.

The actor, 41, opens up about his longtime battle with anxiety in a new interview with The New York Times.

“I have anxiety. I’ve always had anxiety,” he says. “Both in the lighthearted ‘I’m anxious about this’ kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.”

During the early days of his career, Reynolds says he would often stay awake at night paralyzed by fear about his future.

Calling his early 20s a “real unhinged phase,” the actor admits he self-medicated to ease his anxiety.

“I was partying and just trying to make myself vanish in some way,” he says.

As his career began to take off, Reynolds toned down the partying but he says the anxiety never went away. To this day, he still gets wracked by dread and nausea before interviews and talk show appearances.

The actor is busy promoting the sequel to his highly successful 2016 film Deadpool. And with the upcoming film already breaking ticket presale records, the sequel is expected to be another hit — something that makes Reynolds a bit nervous.

“When there’s built-in expectation,” he says, “your brain always processes that as danger.”

So how does he cope with his anxiety? Reynolds, who is known for his quick wit, says he uses humor as a defense and coping mechanism.

“When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he explains. “That’s that great self-defense mechanism. I figure if you’re going to jump off a cliff, you might as well fly.”

Reynolds previously opened up about his battle with anxiety, revealing he had a mental breakdown after wrapping Deadpool.

“I went to go see a doctor because I felt like I was suffering from a neurological problem or something,” Reynolds told GQ. “And every doctor I saw said, ‘You have anxiety.’ ”

Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18.

Don’t look now, but the 36-year-old Canadian actor may be Hollywood’s most undersung, unpretentious renaissance man. He’s blessed with the wit of an Oscar Wilde (by way of Van Wilder), the looks of a matinee idol (see People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, 2010), and the soul of an artist—albeit one who gets his kicks from postmodern anus art. Isn’t it time we took Ryan Reynolds kinda-sorta seriously?

DETAILS.COM – RYAN REYNOLDS IS STARING AT AN ANUS unlike any other he’s seen in his life, and it’s all my fault. The two of us are standing—in synchronous dumbstruckness—in the foyer of a Berlin art gallery, where we’ve just been greeted by a sculpture of a headless, armless bronze torso prostrated on a pedestal—ass-up, as it were—with its sphincter tied with a pair of what appear to be bronzed sneaker laces. “Wow,” Reynolds finally says, with a low exhalation. “That’s gonna be hard to masturbate to.”

We pivot to our left, where hanging on a wall is a large white canvas on which appear to be, at first glance, several rows of way-oversize fingerprints, as though cribbed from the Incredible Hulk’s arrest-booking record. A rinse of relief washes over me, because the art-gallery tour was my idea—I’d heard Reynolds was an art enthusiast—to spring us from the Berlin hotel where Reynolds has been living for five weeks while shooting the director Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices. I chose this gallery in the Mitte neighborhood because it was walking distance from the hotel and, from the photos on its website, seemed to be hosting an exhibit about motorcycles, another of Reynolds’ favorite subjects. The interview, as I’d imagined it, would be a kind of freewheeling Rorschach test—the jumbo card of fingerprints, for instance, perhaps inspiring Reynolds to talk about his father and brother, the former a onetime cop and the latter a constable with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the 36-year-old actor’s native British Columbia.

But this is not what happens. Rebutting my interpretation of the painting, with the same ominous tone Obi-Wan Kenobi used when informing Luke Skywalker that the Death Star was no moon, Reynolds says, “Those aren’t fingerprints, man. They’re ass prints.”

It requires zero artistic acuity to see that Reynolds is right. Bouncily, he says, “Let’s go see if there are more butt holes over here.” We navigate our way into another room filled with . . . yeah, lots more. I’m cringing, a reporter in free fall. My attempt to give one of Hollywood’s most dazzling (if press-shy) leading men, People‘s Sexiest Man Alive in 2010, and the star of one of this summer’s blockbuster contenders a highbrow Rorschach test has landed us at an exhibition about what the gallery literature calls the “heterogeneous interfaces that are characterized by holes and passages.” Or, in a word, anuses.

But Reynolds doesn’t care. In fact, he thinks it’s hilarious, and to trail him through the gallery’s many odd and then odder rooms is to be shotgunned with more raunchy comic riffs and one-liners than are contained on a complete DVD set of Family Guy. (A DVD set, by the way, that would feature Reynolds, who has voiced cameos for the series.) Had my interview notes later been confiscated by German customs officers, I’m not sure how I would’ve been able to explain the following scribbled entries: “giraffe anus”; “Gulliver’s butt hole”; “sack of a thousand anuses”; and “Ernest Borgnine’s asshole.” Except by telling those customs officials: There’s a perversely funny guy working in your country right now. A perversely funny guy who also seems, two years after a series of personal and professional setbacks, to be finding his groove as both an actor and a man, if not as an art critic.

BELFASTTELEGRAPH.CO.UK – Ryan Reynolds relied on self-help books in his twenties.

The hunk was named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2010 and is married to gorgeous Gossip Girl star Blake Lively.

However, the 36-year-old actor hasn’t always been so sure of himself.

“When I was in my twenties, I think I read every self-help book and every psychology book I could ever get my hands on,” he laughed to British magazine OK!

“Even when you look at the Eckhart Tolle books, particularly The Power of Now, they stick with you. I keep forcing myself to be here now, and it’s sometimes hard to do.”

Ryan is often cast as the good-looking lead in romantic films, but he next stars as the voice of animated character Guy in The Croods.

The star is looking forward to showing younger members of his family his latest venture.

“I have so many nieces and nephews that I’ve lost count. I know how enduring these kinds of movies are for them, so I’m excited for them to see it and I’m excited for my future kids to see it,” he smiled.

The actor married 25-year-old Blake towards the end of last year in a super-secret ceremony.

Although they are yet to start a family, Ryan is already planning ahead.

“When I have kids I’ll probably stop [acting],” he revealed.

“When I have children, I imagine I’ll take a lot of time off and will re-prioritise things in my life.”

INDEPENDENT.CO.UK – They’ve both helped make millions at the box office and are two of Hollywood’s most sought after talents, but The Croods voice stars Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone say they still get self-conscious hearing themselves on film.

“It’s like hearing your voice back on a voicemail,” said the 24-year-old Stone, who is known for her trademark raspy voice. “I still can’t believe I sound like this.”

“I can’t believe you sound like this either,” joked the 36-year-old Reynolds in the same recent interview. He went on to confess that “everyone feels that way — like there’s some solace in that. I think everyone feels like that when they hear their own voice. (It sounds) kind of shrill and brutal.”

They’re going to have to get used to it. The animated Croods opened today amid predictions it will be the weekend’s No. 1 movie.

The 3-D film, which also stars Nicolas Cage, takes place in prehistoric times and focuses on the world’s first family, the Croods. Stone is a teen girl named Eep, who longs to leave her cave and see what’s out there. Her father, voiced by Cage, is overly protective. One day they meet a guy… named Guy, played by Reynolds. The Croods and Guy venture out together and learn about the world.

This is the first time Reynolds and Stone have done an animated movie and they hope it rates with some of their own childhood favorites.

Reynolds says he was a fan of the TV show Thunder Cats and adds Smurfs was pretty good, too. “Not a turn on but a good cartoon nonetheless.”

Stone’s animated faves? “I loved ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland.”‘

When Ryan and Blake secretly got engaged last June, they knew it would take careful planning, confidentiality, and a select crew to pull off their nuptials before word got out. Enter Martha Stewart.

We quickly discovered that Ryan and Blake are not like the many altar-bound celebrities who sell their big-day photos to the highest bidder. This public, yet very private, couple’s sole wish was to have an intimate affair (there were only 35 guests total). And while they remain protective of images of them on their most heartfelt occasion, they graciously let us share pictures of the elements we created together.

Go under the cut to see an exclusive sneak peek of Blake and Ryan’s wedding.

To many people, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ wedding on Sept. 9 in South Carolina seemed to come out of nowhere. Now, the couple’s wedding planner, Tara Guérard, exclusively tells Life & Style about how she kept their nuptials top secret!

“[Blake] was trying to decide between getting married in her new home in New York or in Charleston,” Guérard told Life & Style at the Martha Stewart Weddings Annual Bridal Market Party. “She chose [Charleston] because we could keep it secret, quiet and a private affair for her.”

The couple even asked that wedding planners and editors from Martha Stewart Weddings, who helped plan the wedding and introduced Blake to Guérard, refer to them by secret code names.

“I think they used the code names to do a lot of things, so I can’t say!” Guérard says.

“She wanted to get married in the south — in a barn — and Charleston’s one of her favorite places,” Guérard says of the wedding that took place at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. “It was simple and elegant and rustic. They wanted to make it feel like it was at home and with their family and friends.”

As for the newlywed pair, Guérard says Blake and Ryan are the real deal.

“They were so in love,” Guérard gushes. “Through the entire evening, they stuck by each other’s side all night long. It was wonderful!”

An A-list of stars will take to the stage July 11 at Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carré for two shows of “Celebrity Autobiography,” including Bryan Batt (“Mad Men”), Mario Cantone (“Sex and the City”), Jennifer Coolidge (“American Pie”), John Goodman (“Treme”) as well as Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, who developed the show, and Ryan Reynolds, who is in town shooting “Green Lantern.”

Ryan Reynolds is among the actors scheduled to take the stage in ‘Celebrity Autobiography’ on July 11 at Le Petit Theatre.
A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. If the shows sell out, it could mean more than $10,000 to the fund, says Gary Solomon Jr., managing director of Le Petit.

The cult Off Broadway hit is a comedy show featuring a rotating cast of actors who read verbatim from autobiographies of other famous folks — from Tommy Lee’s romance tips to the various perspectives on famous Hollywood love triangles (Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, anyone?).
Two shows will be staged on July 11 at 7 and 9 p.m. at the French Quarter theater. Tickets are $69 and $99 ($60 for post-show cast party). Visit the theater’s website or call 504.522.2081.

Ryan Reynolds said he’s got a superhero “double whammy” on the way.

The star, who is set to play characters from two rival comic book universes – DC’s Green Lantern and Marvel’s Deadpool – sat down on “The Late Show With Jimmy Fallon” to discuss his super-roles.

“[We’re] four, five months away from beginning shooting,” he said of “Green Lantern.” “It’s the only job I’ve ever had that I’m not allowed to talk about. I think there’s a representative from Warner Bros. who I’m sure is following me around, ready to blow-dart me if I say a single word.”

What he could reveal, though, was the movie’s interstellar setting.

“A lot of it is a space epic, some of it is on planet Earth,” he said, explaining the abilities of his character, Hal Jordan, come from a potential-filled power ring. “The ring can create anything his will or imagination can conjure up.”

And with “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” spin-off “Deadpool” in the works as well, Ryan relished in his geek chic.

“At this point, it just makes you like an Internet hero, nothing really more than that,” he told Jimmy.

However, Ryan admitted to checking himself out online – and being surprised at the results.

“It’s the great equalizer,” he said. “I found a couple of Web sites that are real – one was, ‘Make Ryan Reynolds your beyotch.’”

And he said another, BeatingRyanReynolds.com, devoted to beating Ryan’s time from the New York City Marathon last November, was also a surprise – in a good way.

“He’s basically running the marathon only to beat my time, but the kicker is, he’s doing it for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, so he’s actually a stand-up guy in my opinion,” which Ryan said, explaining that he had also run the marathon for the charity.

Ryan Reynolds has hit it lead recent roles in major big-screen blockbusters like Wolverine and The Proposal. He’s also got a pretty sweet personal life to now that he’s married to actress Scarlett Johansson. In Adventureland, on DVD and Blu-ray Aug. 25, Reynolds plays Mike Connell, a technician at a theme park, who’s having an affair with a much younger girl played by Kristen Stewart. Get the inside scoop from Reynolds on amusement parks, dead-end jobs, and more …

Was it difficult to make such a roguish character so charming?
Why thank you very much. It wasn’t my goal to make him that likeable, so I failed you! Again. Yeah, it was fun. I liked that there is no real villains or heroes in this movie. I fthey eel like it’s a lot like life, you know, people have complexities and have their heroic moments and their villainous moments. I will say that with this cast I’ve never felt so old. It was a routine of humility. Obviously this guy is having a pretty inappropriate relationship with this very, very young girl, but the spirit on the set, it really felt like where I was eight or nine years ago. It was like a pretty cool place to be each day.

Have you ever had what seemed like a dead-end job?
Yeah, I worked at a restaurant in Vancouver. I shouldn’t even name it! It was a restaurant in Kitsilano and I was a busboy there, but no one ever really ate there. I think I was actually working for Peruvian drug lords. This was my thought. I had like this abusive boss who had a fuse that was absolutely minimal at best, and I worked there all day. And then at night, I would work at a grocery store the graveyard shift, you know, throwing fresh fruit at my co-workers.

And this was when you were a struggling actor?
Yeah. I mean I was a struggling actor, as much as I could be in Vancouver. I mean you can only play so many ex-Falcon Crest stars’ sons in so many ‘movies of the week’ before you just you burn out! So yeah, I was kind of doing that to supplement my happiness, believe it or not.

What did you make of Twilight star Kristen Stewart, your co-star in Adventureland?
Kristen is great. She’s really great. Obviously life has changed for her in a pretty drastic way since then. So it was kind of cool to see her talking about this thing called Twilight she might do.

Adventureland is a very personal film for Greg Mottola and he’s based a lot of the characters on people that he knew. Did he say that you were based on a particular person?
I don’t think so. You know, that probably would have been a smart thing for me to ask him! But I don’t know. He and I had about four different meetings before I jumped in there, because I didn’t have a lot of trust — I didn’t really know Greg that well other than seeing SuperBad, and I just thought, ‘Is this guy going to just be your stereotypical douche or is he going to be a guy that’s actually got some depth to him or another side to him?

And then, when you hang out with Greg a little bit longer, you realize that all these specifics are in the script for a reason, because this is a guy that actually lived this life and that’s what I love about Adventureland. He’s really created a world you know, where there are such specific instances happening and specific characters that you think ‘Wow, there is no way that someone just made this up; this has actually happened’. It was a great experience. Greg has poured his heart and soul into it in every way.
