May was Mental Health Awareness month and taking advantage of this date, actor Ryan Reynolds wanted to publicize his fight against anxiety in a statement that you can see in the video above.
Some words that have been widely applauded by everyone The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard full movie towards the actor since with this message it makes many people who are going through the same feel reflected in the Hollywood star and you can ask for help.
Now, a few weeks after he spoke about these problems, Ryan has confessed in an interview with ‘ET’ that the main reason he decided to talk about it was because of his daughters: “Part of this is that I have three daughters at home and part of my job as a parent is to model behaviors and to model what it is to be sad and to model what it is to have anxiety or to be angry. Let there be room for all these things “, says Reynolds who has three daughters with Blake LIvely, James, 6 years old, Inez 4, and Betty 1 year old.
Thus, during the promotion of his new film, ‘The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ with Salma Hayek, he has assured that he did not receive this type of help or education as a child but he knows how important it is to talk about it: “The house The one I grew up in was not a role model for me. And that’s not to say that my parents were negligent, but that they come from a different generation. ”
“Part of that is destigmatizing things and creating a conversation about [mental health],” he adds. “I know that when I sit in the absolute bottom it is usually because I feel like I am alone in something that I was feeling. So I think that when people talk about it, I do not necessarily stop at it or regret it, but I think that It’s important to talk about this. And when you talk about it, you liberate other people. ”
And it is that, it is very important that people have examples to see themselves reflected and thus be able to overcome all these taboos: “Other people think, ‘Oh, he is feeling that and I am too.’ And although we could be in two completely different worlds or We could have two completely different lives, it connects us in some way, “he explains. “A lot of this is just wanting to model certain things for my own children and model things for anyone who needs to hear them.”
Finally, Salma Hayek, who was also present at the interview, wanted to add that “a lot of really very intelligent people suffer from anxiety.” “If he is very young or has not achieved some success, it can make him feel that there is something wrong with him and that is not the case. It is part of having an intellect that is stimulated very easily and it is only about channeling that,” he ended.
