Ryan Reynolds has some bright lights on the horizon, with the claustrophobic thriller "Buried" hitting theaters on September 24 and two major superhero flicks -- "Green Lantern" and "Deadpool" -- in 2011 and 2012. Reynolds, who graces the cover of the October issue of GQ, opened up to the magazine about his marriage to Scarlett Johansson, the difficulties in leading a private life and the long road between "Van Wilder" and stardom.
On his family's reaction to him becoming an actor:
"My family is as far from a stage family as you could ever possibly find. Even if my father wasn't speaking to me, he would never, ever miss a baseball game. Even if he was upset with me for a month at a time over some trivial bulls--t, I would still see him standing in his trench coat over there at my football games in the rain. But the acting world, that whole stuff was just so foreign to him. He would never come to that stuff."
