Ryan Reynolds is one of the most popular and likeable actors in Hollywood. The Canadian born star has carved his way from box office champion to critics’ darling, earning himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being named by Time magazine as one of “The 100 Most Influential People” in the world in the process.
In his latest silver screen outing the 40-year-old actor stars as a haphazard gun for hire in The Hitman’s Bodyguard alongside acting giant Samuel L Jackson (in cinemas tomorrow, Friday, August 18).
Ever since we saw the handsome star in TV sitcom Two Guys And A Girl we’ve had a teensy weensy crushette on him so we were delighted to divine his hidden depths, to read his runes, to find out the man behind the mask.
Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool
Scratch The Surface
He comes across as super cool and confident but underneath it all the tarot suggests Ryan has moments of insecurity, especially where his acting skills are concerned. It’s as though he doubts his gifts and is just waiting for someone to rumble him, call him out on it. The Tarot shows that his laidback persona actually masks a person who is incredibly driven and disciplined, who has a desire to work hard and to prove to himself that his place in Hollywood is not a fluke. He’s a family man at heart and wants to be the provider. Our guides say this may at times cause conflict in his relationships because he may not always understand why the other person wants to work, too. He’s quick-witted and generous to a fault. He’s happiest when he’s surrounded by love ones, showering them with life’s luxuries. Our Witch Twitch says Ryan knows never to take for granted that which has been given because just as easy as it comes it can go.
Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests family is incredibly important to the Deadpool star. It is his raison d’etre. He’s very close to family members especially when it comes to his siblings. The crystal ball shows he still enjoys playing around with them, sharing memories of when they were naughty and reckless children. Our guides say because of his close upbringing he makes for a great parent. His girls, James and Ines, are his world. In relationships, he is a hopeless romantic and, the Tarot suggests, he likes to be seduced – and do the seducing, too. Our guides say, he doesn’t set out to break hearts – that’s not his style – but unfortunately due to his mercurial nature it can be a by-product. Not every girl gets to keep this boy. Just ask former fiancée singer Alanis Morissette, who penned the ballad Torch about Reynolds when they split, and ex-wife actress Scarlett Johansson (our guides suggest a lack of family love played a part in this break up). Love is deep with his wife, Gossip Girl actress and his Green Lantern co-star Blake Lively. The Tarot suggests they share the same family values and relish being in their own little universe. Our Witch Twitch says, sorry girls, this one is for keeps.
Our guides show Ryan is at one with Spirit animal totem Goose. It may not be the sexiest of symbols but it is one of the most dynamic. With this magical spirit bird as his guide, the actor is likely to be ambitious to a fault. He sets goals for accomplishment, and always obtains them. The goose is determined to succeed at all cost - not for the approval of other - but those with this Native American animal symbol compete with their own internal foe. Goose can often make Ryan come across as domineering, he’s not he’s simply driven. Birds of a feather flock together; Ryan is best when he’s in a loving environment as it pushes him further to excel in all things he attempts. He’s passionate about those in his flock and will go to any lengths to protect them. Goose can also bring out a cheeky side to the actor which can have a people eating out of his hand. Our Witch Twitch says Goose reminds Ryan there are always new skies to fly.
If you think this guy is a star now you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Tarot shows this is only the beginning for the The Proposal star. His career is going to take a stellar leap after taking on a seriously successful movie role. It will bring him huge plaudits as well as a cabinet of gold. Our guides say a future onscreen partnership is likely to be testing, with advances made that are not reciprocated by Ryan. He needs to be careful this doesn’t get blown out of proportion, to brush it off and pretend that it’s all a bit of fun. This person has powerful friends. Our guides warn not to get on the wrong side of her! Although he’s at home in the city, a new house, with a view of the ocean, is going to bring much joy to Ryan and his family. It will be a retreat where he will relax with friends, the door always open, rooms always filled with laughter. The Tarot suggests within 18 months they’ll be another addition to the Reynolds’ family. Although there may be a slight complication surrounding this in the early stages. On a health note, the crystals advise Ryan to take up meditation, even if it’s a five-minute time out in his day. Our Witch Twitch says life is charmed but Ryan needs to watch out for those who wish to steal it.
