Here’s how Ryan made his millions.
Reynolds began his career as a teenager staring in mostly television until the turn of the century. The Canadian actor made his U.S debut on the Nickelodeon series Fifteen.
By the turn of the century, Reynolds began to pursue a career in film.
In 2002, Reynolds stared in his first major film, National Lampoon’s Van Wilder. The film was not well received when it first debuted but became a classic in later years. In 2005, Reynolds was cast as George Lutz in the remake of The Amityville Horror. The film grossed $64.3 million and received a 4.2/10 rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
In the late 2000s, Reynold’s career began to take off. In 2008, he was cast in the heartwarming film Definitely, Maybe alongside child actress Abigail Breslin. The film made $32.2 million.
In 2009, Reynolds starred in his most successful film to date, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, as Deadpool, a role which he would later resume in 2016. The film grossed over $179 million. That same year Ryan starred alongside Sandra Bullock in The Proposal. The rom-com made $169.3 million.
Ryan continued to be one of Hollywood’s hottest leading actors in the 2011 Marvel film Green Lantern. The film grossed $116.6 million, and Reynolds stared alongside Blake Lively. Shortly after the completion of the film, the two started dating.
In 2012, the duo married and purchased a 4,743 square foot, $2.3 million home in Bedford, New York. The couple’s wedding was planned by none other than the expert herself, Martha Stewart. The wedding was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings three months later. Blake’s 12 carat, $2,000,000 oval cut engagement ring has become one the most replicated and stylish rings. Ryan definitely has great taste!
In 2014, the happy couple welcomed baby James into the world. Blake and Ryan have made it a point to keep their baby girl out of the spotlight. Reynolds has mentioned that he loves being a dad and often places his finger under his daughter’s nose to make sure she’s breathing at night.
That same year it was announced that Reynolds would star in the X: Men spin-off, Deadpool. The film is set to be released February 2016.
In 2015, Reynolds starred as Mark in the science fiction thriller, Self/less. The film was not well received by audiences and critics alike and only scored a 4.6/10 on Rotten Tomatoes. The film made a modest $12.2 million, making it Reynold’s lowest grossing film to date.
Ryan was also busy filming for the superhero flick Deadpool and spending time with family.
Ryan’s latest film, Deadpool, was released February 12, 2016. Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson and his alter ego Deadpool. As we know, the movie is killing it, and Ryan is going to get paid big time for its success.
According to Hollywood Reporter, “Ryan Reynolds was paid $2 million upfront and is said to be the only actor eligible for box-office bonuses and backend compensation. He’s now likely to make more than $10 million from the movie and possibly much more, especially if it reaches $800 million in global sales as projected.”
We can’t wait to see what the Canadian cutie does next! Keep making those millions Ryan!
