During an April 2018 interview with The New York Times, the “Deadpool” actor revealed, “I have anxiety, I’ve always had anxiety. Both in the lighthearted ‘I’m anxious about this’ kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.” Speaking about how it manifests, he admitted to getting wracked by dread and nausea before live appearances and to tackle them he channels his Deadpool alter-ego and practices meditation before walking in to one. “When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he said.
