Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds recently opened up about his struggle with mental health and anxiety in a rare Instagram post. The actor, 44, commemorated Mental Health Awareness Month with a lengthy statement. “May is almost over. It’s also Mental Health Awareness month. Which brings me to…” Ryan began. “One of the reasons I’m posting this so late is I over-schedule myself and important things slip. And one of the reasons I overschedule myself is my lifelong pal, anxiety. I know I’m not alone and more important, to all those like me who over schedule, overthink, overwork, over-worry and over-everything, please know you’re not alone.”

 

He concluded, “We don’t talk enough about mental health and don’t do enough to destigmatize talking about it. But, as with this post, better late than never, I hope…” You can see his post here
