Ryan Reynolds has been named GQ’s 2016 Man of the Year, (yep we’ll toast to that) and he has opened up about falling in love with wife Blake Lively.
Speaking about the moment he knew it was “going to happen” with the actress, he joked, “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.”
The couple have now been married for four years and welcomed their second daughter in September.
The 40-year-old Deadpool star also opened up about struggling with a “nervous breakdown” after he finished filming the hit movie.
"When [filmingDeadpool] ﬁnally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown. I literally had the shakes," he tells the magazine.
"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.'"
“I say this with the caveat that I completely recognise the ridiculously fortunate position that I am in. But the attention is hard on your nervous system—that might be why I live out in the woods.”
