We usually get the bright side of an actor’s life as they always give their best to entertain us. However, they do have good and bad experiences as ordinary people do. In a new episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman season 4, we got to see Ryan Reynolds diving into his childhood memories. While giving details about his high school experience in the Canadian city where he grew up as a child, he revealed how he decided to become a part of this glistening industry famously known as Hollywood.
Ryan Reynolds’ momentary decision during college changed his life
The interview started with Reynolds and Letterman chatting about his family and childhood in the gorgeous city of Vancouver. Ryan told some of the craziest moments of his life before Hollywood, including how he left Kwanten College, where he had decided to study a criminology course. In the interview, Ryan told Letterman that he dropped out of the university the moment he stepped into the class.
“It coincided with my first day of college. I walked in, kind of looked around and said, ‘nope'”.
Ryan revealed how his father wasn’t happy as he wanted him to go to college. However, he couldn’t stand even 45 minutes under the roof of Kwantlen Polytechnic University. So he just drove all the way to Los Angeles to pursue his passion without informing anyone from his family. This was a big step and it definitely made him anxious at the beginning of his career, living in a big city all by himself.
“He was disappointed by me moving to Los Angeles,” remarked Ryan in the My Next Guest Needs No Introduction episode.
Living in America mesmerized him growing up. Somehow, all these events in his teenage years led him toward his destiny. And today, he is one of the most renowned celebrities in Hollywood. As his fans, we are happy that Ryan took all those impulsive or instant decisions. Otherwise, we would have missed seeing a remarkable actor onstage.
His talent is clearly visible in the movies he has been featured including The Adam Project, Deadpool, Red Notice, and Free Guy, among others. For getting a deeper insight into Ryan Reynolds’ life before fame, go watch the full episode streaming on Netflix.
