How Ryan Reynolds’s net worth was built
Actor Ryan Reynolds describes himself as a nervous and sensitive kid, but he found solace in acting in school plays.
He was just 12 years old when he landed his first professional acting role in a teen drama series called “Hillsong,” which was renamed “Fifteen” when it started airing in the U.S.
His breakthrough came in 1998 after he moved to Los Angeles and landed a lead role in the sitcom “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place.” After the show ended, he made the leap into film.
He appeared in several romantic comedies and dramas, including “Van Wilder” in 2002, “Just Friends” in 2005, “Definitely Maybe” in 2008 and “The Proposal” in 2009.
He also played comic book character Deadpool in the 2009 film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and the Green Lantern in the movie by the same name. As of May, Celebrity Net Worth lists Reynolds’ net worth at $65 million.
