Ryan Reynolds discussed his battle with anxiety on Lorraine this week.

The Hollywood actor was joined by co-stars Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz to promote their new film, Deadpool 2.

The actor showed off his vulnerable side when he discussed mental health.

Talking about the subject, Ryan said, “It destigmatises it when you talk about it.”

The father of two added, You look at people who are maybe in a profession that looks glamorous and amazing and you think they have everything, but it doesn’t discriminate, it affects everyone.”

Ryan and wife Blake Lively are known for their hilarious social media antics, and the actor admitted that it’s his way of moving away from darkness.

“That’s what social media is for me, there’s enough news and enough of bombardment of darkness coming our way, it’s fun to just have a little fun,” Ryan said.

Happy Birthday to my amazing wife.

The actor also revealed that his Deadpool character is his favourite role to date.

“It’s pretty limitless. It’s the role I feel most privileged to have in my entire career. I feel I like was sort of born for it. I love Deadpool.

“The hardest thing on set is keeping a straight face, but that’s what the mask is for. There are takes in the movie where I know I’m cracking up laughing under the mask but I’m doing it silently, but I’m supposed to be listening to something serious. It’s in there. If you watch you can kind of feel it,” he added.
