“I lay awake at night, wrapping and unwrapping every possible scenario.”

Ryan Reynolds is a prolific actor. With more than 100 film and television credits on IMDB, his career — which includes critically-acclaimed onscreen performances as well as producer roles — has clearly kept him busy for the past three decades.

“I tend to pave over anxiety with work and, to a lesser extent, achievement,” he said in conversation with The Wall Street Journal. “I tend to bite off way more than I could or should chew.”

“I fixate on things…That’s sort of the engine of anxiety. I lay awake at night, wrapping and unwrapping every possible scenario,” he added.

Just this year, Ryan has starred in Free Guy, which he also produced, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, and Red Notice, which opens in theaters next week.
