Ryan Reynolds struggled making his claustrophobic film "Buried" and spoke to Parade about the ordeal.
Reynolds told Parade.com: 'I definitely struggled with a lot of Insomnia' while filming Buried."
Reynolds, where he talks about his intense performance in Buried, his mom’s reaction to the film, and why he couldn’t sleep for weeks while filming.
On how he's a changed man...
"I definitely felt like I emerged from the box as a different person than the one that went in. For all of the difficulties and the challenges in shooting a movie as different as this, it was a great experience. Anything at the time that I thought was insurmountable or incredibly difficult, the scars and things, are just spoils of war."
On how he walked away with scraps, bruises and even a small bald patch...
"All of the physical injuries are like souvenirs. But the emotional stuff is harder. When you're spending 17 straight days in a heightened state of anxiety and panic, it's not very good for your nervous system, so you walk away pretty jittery. I definitely struggled with a lot of insomnia when I was working on this film and that was something that was new to me."
On his mom's take on Buried...
"My family has seen it. I brought my mom to the premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and she was already terrified going in just knowing the premise. Her reaction at the end of the film: she just looked at me and said, 'How dare you.'"
