The latter set numerous records at the time of its release for an R-rated comedy, and his performance earned him nominations at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.

In 2010, he was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive and was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. As a businessman, Reynolds holds an ownership stake in Mint Mobile and is a co-owner of Welsh football club Wrexham AFC; the latter was documented in the TV series “Welcome to Wrexham.” In 2020, Reynolds sold his ownership stake in Aviation Gin to Diageo for $610 million.

Reynolds played minor roles in numerous TV shows but became discouraged and quit acting when he was 19 to enroll at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. A few months later, he ran into fellow actor Chris William Martin, who convinced him to try again and move with him to Los Angeles.

What religion is Ryan Reynolds?

Ryan Reynolds has Irish and Scottish ancestry and grew up in an Irish Catholic household. However, the actor has been quoted as saying, “Religion poisons everything good in this world,” so it’s unclear if he’s still a practicing Catholic. Reynolds and Blake Lively met on the set of “Green Lantern” and started dating in October 2011. The couple married in September 2012 and share four children.
