During the talk, the actor was asked to tell some unexpected detail for his followers about his relationship with his wife. Thus, the actor revealed that he was the author of many of the dialogues in his films, and that Blake used to join with ideas and even entire parts of the script written by her, but his work was never recognized, attributing it to Ryan instead.

The actor became serious when giving his answer, giving as an example the work of Blake in Deadpool 2 (2018) and extolling the role of his wife as a screenwriter.

“It helped me a lot in Deadpool and in the rest of my films that have been a great success, “he insisted,” He has always put a lot of bricks in that wall. Has a lot of talent. There are standout scripts I’ve done that were really Blake’s; He’d come in, grab me on the keyboard and say, ‘And this?’ and I’d say, ‘It’s great.’

The actor, in addition, is clear why Blake was never included as a screenwriter in the credits of many of his films, and denounced the discrimination she suffered for being a woman.

“Maybe it’s because there is an intrinsic sexism in the industry,” he said, “I’ve said it many times: ‘She wrote this, Blake wrote it, not me. It was her. ‘ And they, later, repeat the story like: ‘I wrote it.’

The actor himself recently confessed in an interview that Blake would also be responsible for many of the details of Free Guy (2021) his recently released film, with dialogues written by her and even very wise decisions regarding the wardrobe that the Canadian wore in the film.
