Ryan Reynolds to Receive Robin Williams Legacy Award for Laughter

Star-Studded Gala in New York

Ryan Reynolds is to be honored with the Robin Williams Legacy of Laughter Award at the 11th annual gala hosted by Glenn Close's non-profit, Bring Change to Mind. This award pays tribute to Robin Williams and is presented by his children, Zak, Zelda, and Cody. Reynolds joins a prestigious list of past recipients in recognition of his contributions to the world of comedy and entertainment.

Event Details

The gala is scheduled to take place on October 9 in the vibrant city of New York. Attendees can look forward to captivating performances by Reba McEntire and Amy Schumer. The event will also feature an exciting auction, with items such as a guitar signed by Taylor Swift, a close friend of Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively. Interestingly, Lively made her directorial debut in one of Swift's music videos.

An Incredible Career Voyage

Born in Canada in 1976, Ryan Reynolds embarked on his acting career at the young age of 14 with the teen television drama, Fifteen. His journey continued with his first film, Ordinary Magic, in 1993, followed by a series of roles in both film and television, primarily within the comedy genre.

In 2004, Reynolds showcased his versatility by joining the cast of Blade Trinity, where he displayed his action chops. However, it was his role in the romantic comedy Just Friends in 2005 that led to a string of similar roles, making it challenging for him to diversify. Despite notable appearances in dramas like The Nines, Chaos Theory, Fireflies in the Garden, and Adventureland, Reynolds remained associated with comedy and romance, with The Proposal being one of his most celebrated movies.

In 2009, he took on the role of Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a portrayal that faced harsh criticism from fans and even the actor himself. Nevertheless, Reynolds was determined to bring the character to life on the big screen, leading to his iconic performance as Deadpool in 2016, which earned immense popularity for its dark humor and unapologetic violence.

Since then, Reynolds has expanded his career beyond acting, venturing into production and business. He now owns his production company and a soccer team. Excitingly, he's set to bring Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the third installment of the character's solo saga.'
