Ryan Reynolds Recalls His Anxiety Battle and Tendency to Overwork

Reynolds sat down for the interview just hours after returning home from filming Spirited in Boston. “Full disclosure: I shot till about 3:30 this morning,” he said, “drove till 5:30 or 6; slept for an hour and a half until two of my kids punched me in the face.”

Reynolds lives in a rural area north of New York City with wife and actress Blake Lively and their three daughters.

Earlier this month, just after wrapping production on Spirited, Reynolds announced on Instagram that it was the “perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.” He attributed the reason to being a “parent.”

For the actor, the challenge of balancing work with family life doesn’t only apply to film sets. Reynolds and Lively’s youngest daughter, Betty, 2, adorably interrupted his interview with WSJ. The magazine quoted him as saying,Look at this!” as the toddler pushed through the door, telling him, “Hi, Dada.”

According to the outlet, Lively told Reynolds, “She was begging to see you and she’s about to go to bed.”

“I’m going to put this one to bed,” the actor said. “Then when I put myself to bed, I’ll lie awake.”
