Ryan Reynolds on Anxiety After Wrapping Deadpool
Speaking candidly with GQ, Reynolds shares how he experienced anxiety after filming wrapped for Deadpool. The 40-year-old actor explains, “I felt like I was on some schooner in the middle of a white squall the whole time. It just never stopped.” Reynolds continues, “When it ﬁnally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown. I literally had the shakes. 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.'”
Already ahead of critics, Reynolds relates, “I say this with the caveat that I completely recognize the ridiculously fortunate position that I am in.

I wasn’t just trying to open it; I was trying to make a cultural phenomenon.” Read more on GQ.com.
