Ryan Reynolds has revealed that the pressure of making his hit film Deadpool caused him to suffer from a mental breakdown.
“I felt like I was on some schooner in the middle of a white squall the whole time,” he told GQ of making the superhero film.
“It just never stopped. When it ﬁnally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown. I literally had the shakes,” the 40-year-old continued.
“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.’”
Reynolds admitted that the attention he was receiving was hard on his nervous system.
"And I was banging the loudest drum for Deadpool. I wasn't just trying to open it; I was trying to make a cultural phenomenon," he said.
In the same interview, the Deadpool star joked that he knew wife Blake Lively, 29, was the one "after the sex".
"Probably after the sex. No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that's open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, "Want to dance?" No one was in there, so it was just totally empty.
"And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, "Oh, I think I just crossed a line." And then I walked her home. And, uh, you know, I don't really need to go into what happened after that."
