Deadpool fans were dealt quite the shocking blow when it was announced that director Tim Miller would exit the movies’ sequel. Reportedly, Miller had issues with star Ryan Reynolds; the two, along with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were part of the group responsible for getting Deadpool on the big screen.

Reynolds opened up about Miller’s exit in a new GQ interview saying, “All I can really add is that I’m sad to see him off the film. Tim’s brilliant, and nobody worked harder on Deadpool than he did.”

He added, “Making the movie was very, very difficult. It was the most passionate group of individuals I’ve ever worked with in my life. And for whatever reason, that mercurial crazy burgoo of people is what made this thing work so well, not just because I had this vision and I saw it this way and it had to be this way. It worked because we all had that feeling. But there were vaguely scary fights in the post-production process that escalated quickly. Luckily, everybody’s grown up and at the end of the day enjoys and loves each other.”

He spoke further about their relationship, “I know when I need to exert control, and I know when I need to let go of it. I’m not gonna go and sit with Tim Miller and say, ‘The visual effects of Deadpool need to be done this way.’ The man is a visual-effects wizard. But there are character and tone things that I know really well. And I’ve also been with this thing the longest out of anybody, aside from the guys that wrote the comics. Eleven years I’ve been trying to get this Sisyphus rock up the hill, and it kept rolling back on top of me. So I’m gonna be all the f**k over it from the moment it starts to the moment it finishes.”

Reynolds also opened up about his beautiful wife Blake Lively and when he knew that she was “the one”, “We were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that’s open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, ‘Want to dance?’,” he explained after prompting. “No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where halfway through the dance, it was like, ‘Oh, I think I just crossed a line.'”

The two met on the set of Green Lantern back in 2010 and married two years later. They have two kids; their daughter James came in 2014 and they just had their second child, a daughter, they’ve yet to reveal her name.
