Award winning actor, Ryan Reynolds is a Canadian-born star known for his prince charming demeanour, stylish personality and sometimes-a-bit-crude witty jokes. Not many people know that he started his career by starring in a teen drama Fifteen (1991-1993), later landing on other television roles such as playing a medical student on the sitcom Two Guys and a Girl (1998 – 2001).
In spite of the fact that Ryan Reynolds struggled to get his acting career off the ground with small roles in films that did not do well on the charts, he enjoyed immense popularity among the public and was featured in People magazine’s (2007), earning the title “Sexiest Renaissance Man.”
Here we find out the reasons why he was able to wow the audience and became one of the most handsome and hilarious men in Hollywood.
1. Chocolate Hero
In case you are not familiar with the term, a chocolate hero is a young, fresh-faced hero who specializes in romantic roles.
The kind of hero that women fantasize about – the ideal boy of their dreams.
With his portrayal of a sweet and cute guy in romantic comedy movies like, Just Friends (2005), Definitely, Maybe (2008), which critics reviewed as ‘a refreshing change of pace from run-of-the-mill Hollywood romantic comedies’, he got noticed in the movie industry and gained thousands of female fans.
He continued his soft boy image with the blockbuster The Proposal (2009) as the main lead with Sandra Bullock.
This laugh-out-loud comedy about a domineering boss who suddenly needs to marry her assistant to avoid deportation does not sit well with the critics who called it “surprisingly risqué” but manages to gross millions at the box office becoming a hit film.
2. Action Star
In 2011, Ryan decided to change his sweet boy image and grab more diverse roles, starring in The Change-up and Green Lantern.
While the former was a rude sexy comedy, taking the body-swap act of Freaky Friday into an R-rated category, the later was action thriller based on a comic superhero.
Delivering his skills as a versatile actor, he appeared as an agent in Safe House (2012), starring opposite Denzel Washington.
His supporting role in biopic Women in Gold (2015) followed soon after, garnering good critical acclaim.
In 2016, his career took a major turn when he received a Critics Choice Movie Award for Best Actor and Critics Choice Entertainer of the Year Award as well as Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor for his superhero character in Deadpool.
