Ryan Reynolds finally revealed that why he has decided to take ‘a little sabbatical’ from moviemaking after wrapping on his upcoming Apple TV+ holiday film, Spirited.
Free Guy star Reynolds recently told The Hollywood Reporter at the Wall Street Journal Magazine Innovator Awards on Monday in New York City that he’s trying to create little space for his family and want to spend time with them. He said, “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. You know you don’t really get that time back.”
For unversed, the actor took to his Instagram on October 16 to share that Spirited had wrapped. He wrote, “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.” Reynolds added, “I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.”
Although, just because he won’t be making any movies, doesn’t mean he won’t be working on one of the many other projects under his belt. “I’m busy, obviously, with other things at my company,” he told the outlet.
However, apart from acting, Reynolds also has stakes in Aviation Gin, Mint Mobile, Maximum Effort Marketing, and Wrexham AFC. “Showing up is so important and picking up the phone and having skin in the game. Our philosophy is to bring people together in fun, smart, unexpected ways,” Reynolds previously told the outlet of his various business ventures. “So, I’ll probably be away from the film, or at least shooting films, till the end of the summer. It just provides me an opportunity to be home,” he added.
