Ryan Reynolds Biography

Ryan Reynolds

Date of Birth: October 23, 1976

Canadian boy Reynolds hails from Vancouver, BC. The youngest of four brothers, Reynolds started acting around the age of 12 when he went with four friends to audition for a part on the series, Fifteen. After beating out 400 other hopefuls for the role of Billy Simpson, Reynolds spent the next four years filming the show (which earned him a Youth in Film Award nomination) along with other series like The Odyssey playing Marco, and guest roles on The Outer Limits, Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years and The X-Files.

His first feature credit was in the Canadian film, Ordinary Magic (1993) where he played the lead character, Jeffrey, a Canadian boy raised in India.

By the time he was 18, Reynolds moved down to L.A. to expand his resume. After working on several telefilms including Serving the Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Reynolds landed a co-starring role on the surprise hit sitcom, Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place playing Berg.

Using the exposure from the series, Reynolds moved on to more feature film work, most notably Coming Soon (1999), Dick (1999), and Buying The Cow (2001). Reynolds took the spotlight once again after landing the lead role in the film National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002). Since then, he's risen to A-list star status, starring in movies such as The Amityville Horror (2005), Definitely, Maybe (2008), The Proposal (2009), the title role in Green Lantern (2011), and Safe House (2012). He also played a cameo in the hit comedy Ted starring Mark Wahlberg. His most recent film is R.I.P.D. (2013) that is directed by Robert Schwentke

In 2010, Reynolds was named the "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine. He was engaged to Canadian rock star Alanis Morrisette, but they broke it off in June 2006. He married Scarlett Johansson in September 2008, but on December 14, 2010, they announced that the marriage was over. In 2011, Reynolds began dating Gossip Girl star Blake Lively and they married September 9, 2012.
