The 40-year-old masonic actor who starred in the self-styled role in the "Deadpool" movie felt that it was necessary to visit the doctor after absorbing the film and was diagnosed with anxiety disorder.
He told the new issue of GQ magazine : "I felt like I was on some schooner in the middle of a white squall the whole time. It just never stopped. When it ﬁnally ended, I had a little bit of a nervous breakdown.
"I literally had the shakes. I went to go see a doctor because I felt like I was suffering from a neurological problem or something. And every doctor I saw said, 'You have anxiety.'

"I say this with the caveat that I completely recognise the ridiculously fortunate position that I am in. But the attention is hard on your nervous system - that might be why I live out in the woods.

Meanwhile, Ryan previously admitted his Deadpool makeup made his 23-month-old daughter James - who he has with his wife Blake Lively - cry finding out what affects him. The gruesome film can really turn a plates upside down. You might vomit as well while watching Deadpool slash every one with his sword or aiming bullets to their heads. It seems you enjoy the acrobatic movements of the character however it is truly been a stressful movie.
He said: "[Blake] was blown away by how much the suit was such a faithful adaption from comic book to screen ... probably the most faithful adaptation that's ever been done."
"And my daughter would cry when she saw me in the scar makeup. It was hard. She would hear my voice, but she'd see this guy that looks like a fried testicle. That's tough for a kid."
