Los Angeles Times - - PERSONALITY -

Dead­pool star Ryan Reynolds, 40, plays the world’s top body­guard tasked with get­ting a no­to­ri­ous hit­man (Sa­muel L. Jack­son) safely to court in the ac­tion/com­edy The Hit­man’s Body­guard, in the­aters Aug. 18. Here are five facts about the Cana­dian-born ac­tor. One of his brothers is a Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice of­fi­cer. Reynolds de­vel­oped a fear of fly­ing when, while sky­div­ing, his para­chute didn’t open and he needed to use his re­serve chute. He failed his high school drama class. On his first night in Hol­ly­wood, some­one stole his Jeep. He found it the next day miss­ing its doors. He met wife-to-be Blake Lively while film­ing Green Lantern (2011), but they didn’t date un­til about a year later when both were sin­gle.
