Ryan Reynolds Opens Up About Struggles with Anxiety: “Please Know You’re Not Alone.”

It’s Mental Health Awareness month and Ryan Reynolds took the opportunity to open up about his mental health.

“One of the reasons I’m posting this so late is I overschedule myself and important things slip up,” the actor wrote on Instagram Wednesday. “And one of the reasons I overschedule myself is my lifelong pal, anxiety.”

“I know I’m not alone, and most importantly, to all those like me who overschedule, overthink, overwork, over-worry, and over-everything, please know you’re not alone.”

Ryan concluded, “We don’t talk about mental health or do enough to destigmatize talking about it. But, as with this post, better later than never, I hope.”

Pal Hugh Jackman dropped their fake feud and shared his support writing, “Mate, your honesty is not only brave but I’m positive it will help countless others who struggle with anxiety too. Good on you!”
