Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds recently revealed the reason behind his decision of taking a little sabbatical from moviemaking after wrapping up his upcoming Apple TV+ movie ‘Spirited’.
The actor revealed that he wants to take a break from movies in order to spend some time with his family. “I’m just trying to create a little bit more space for my family [wife Blake Lively and their three daughters] and time with them,” Reynolds was quoted saying.
“You know, you don’t really get that time back,” he added.
The ‘Deadpool’ actor took to his Instagram on October 16 to share that ‘Spirited’ had wrapped. “Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago. Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists” he wrote.
Even though Ryan won’t be making any movies he has still got a lot of work under his belt. “I’m busy, obviously, with other things at my company,” he said. Aside from acting, Reynolds also has stakes in Aviation Gin, Mint Mobile, Maximum Effort Marketing and Wrexham AFC.
“So, I’ll probably be away from film, or at least shooting films, till the end of the summer. It just provides me an opportunity to be home,” he said.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who got married in 2012, are proud parents to daughters James, Inez and Betty. The couple originally met while filming 2011’s ‘Green Lantern’.
