Can Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s relationship get any cuter?
The actor’s career has taken off ever since he was cast in several superhero films, but he hasn’t always been the confident movie star his is now. In a new interview, Ryan opened up about his lifelong struggle with anxiety and credited his wife with supporting him in his career and helping him cope in tough times.
Ryan was recently nominated for his first-ever Golden Globe award — best actor in a musical or comedy — for his role as the title character in 2016's Deadpool.

But as Ryan prepared for Deadpool, he suffered from anxiety because he felt intense pressure to do his character justice. He said his biggest fear was letting fans of the original comic book down — and it was Blake who helped ease his nerves.

“By the time we were in post-production, we’d been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for [the movie]. The expectations were eating me alive,” Ryan told Variety. “Blake helped me through that. I’m lucky to have her around just to keep me sane.”
Last month, Ryan received his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Blake was right by her husband’s side during the ceremony, along with the couple’s daughters — two-year-old James and three-month-old Ines.

Shortly after the event, Blake shared a photo of Ryan’s star on Instagram and wrote an incredibly sweet, supportive message to her husband.
“Proud is a pitiful word to describe how I felt today,” the actress wrote in the caption. “The permanence of your impact is undeniable... always has been, but now we have a fancy [star] to show for it.”
