Ryan Reynolds: I'm lucky with fame

Ryan Reynolds is grateful that he's managed to navigate the "choppy waters" of stardom.

The actor has starred in numerous films including romantic comedies Definitely, Maybe and The Proposal.

In September 2012 Ryan married his Green Lantern co-star and Gossip Girl beauty Blake Lively.

The pair managed to keep the ceremony private and the star generally feels he has come out of the industry relatively unscathed.

"I've been lucky," he admitted to Total Film.

"I've had my head screwed on right. I have a wonderful wife. I have a good family and three older brothers that just care about me and I care about them. I'm lucky that I've been able to navigate these choppy waters with some degree of trueness. I'm grateful for that."

Action adventure Green Lantern, in which Ryan took on the role of the title character alongside Blake's Carol Ferris, received disappointing reviews.

Despite what critics might say, the 36-year-old wouldn't change anything about his career.

"I know that I have an obscenely wonderful life because of this business. And I know that I'm able to do something that I love and that I didn't spend my life sitting at a desk hating some of the life choices I've made," he said.

"I would never want to tell myself not to do something that turned out to be complete and utter sh*t - whether it's a choice in my life or my career - because everything led to this moment. And I love this moment. I'll always love this moment."

In 2010, hunky Ryan took the crown for People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive award.

When it comes to dreamy Hollywood actors, he has his own favourite - Drive's Ryan Gosling.

"I've been a big fan of his since... [2000 film] Remember the Titans," he smiled.

"Yeah, he's amazing. He's doing such fantastic work. It's kind of such an exciting time in film right now. There are a lot of young actors doing amazing things."
