Ryan Reynolds suffers from anxiety disorder
Many people believe rich celebrities have no problems. In recent years, more and more stars and starlets have shown that this is not the case. So does actor Ryan Reynolds. He is open and honest about his illness on social media.
Ryan Reynolds is very open about his anxiety. The 44-year-old actor has suffered from mental illness for many years, as he has already emphasized in numerous interviews. Given that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, the Deadpool star has now shared a post about his illness on Instagram.
“I know I am not alone and much more important to everyone who, like me, over-planning, thinking too much, overworking, worrying excessively and worrying too much of everything. Please know that you are not alone,” he wrote Canadians in his post. In his opinion, there was still too little talk about mental health. Too little is being done to destigmatize mental illness.
In a 2017 interview with Variety, Reynolds revealed that he has struggled with anxiety since childhood. “Our father was tough. He didn’t make it easy for anyone. And he didn’t make it easy for himself. I think the anxiety started when I tried to control others by controlling myself,” said the superhero actor.
