Born on October 23, 1976 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Ryan Reynolds grew up in a modest family alongside his three older brothers. Pushed by his parents to become an actor, he debuted on the small screen at the age of 14 in the television series Fifteen. He then went on to play a small role in the TV series X-Files: The Frontiers of Reality (1996), Sabrina, the Apprentice Witch (1996), and Un toit pour trois (1998-2001). At the same time, he continued his courses (at Kitsilano High School, then at Kwantlen Polytechnic University) and began a career as a model, for Calvin Klein underwear.

After a first big screen role in the drama Ordinary Magic, the young Canadian tried his luck in Hollywood in 1997 with the comedy Life During Wartime. It wasn’t until 2002, however, that he landed the lead role in Hannibal King’s American Party – Van Wilder Public Relations. His outstanding performance opened up new opportunities for him. The actor is successively chosen to play in Spy but not too much! (2003), alongside Michael Douglas, then Blade Trinity, with Wesley Snipes (2004), before starring in the horror film Amityville (2005). Four years later, he appeared in the production Marvel X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). He continues in the world of superheroes with Green Lantern in 2011.

At the same time, he is making his mark in American romantic comedies. He joined the team of La proposition in 2009, before playing in Echange Standard in 2011. He excels just as much in dramatic comedies, such as Rodrigo Cortes’ breathtaking Buried in 2010. 2012 is a busy year for Ryan Reynolds, who has been cast in the lead male role in the film Big Eyes (in which he will play Reese Witherspoon), then cast in the upcoming Highlander reboot, directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and in Atom Egoyan’s Queen of the Night.

On the private side, the former model collects the prettiest girls: after a five-year idyll with Canadian singer Alanis Morissette from 2002 to February 2007 (the two stars were even engaged in June 2004), Ryan Reynolds married the pulpy Scarlett Johansson on September 27, 2008. But the couple divorced on December 14, 2010. The actor soon found himself on the arm of another actress who has the wind in her sails in Hollywood: Blake Lively, whom he met on the set of Green Lantern in October 2011. They get married in secret and in the greatest intimacy on September 9, 2012, near Charleston, South Carolina. On December 16, 2014, the couple welcomes a little girl named James. At the end of September 2016, the actress gave birth to a second daughter, Inez. On May 2, 2019, during the premiere of the film Pokémon: Detective Pikatchu, the actress displays her third pregnancy. On October 17, 2019, Ryan Reynolds posts a photo on Instagram of their third daughter, born several weeks ago.
