Sad times, Ryan Reynolds quits the movie biz… sort of

Ryan Reynolds has bombed his socials, stating that he plans to take a “sabbatical” from filmmaking once his current project is completed.

The Canadian actor just finished filming spicy, a musical based on the novel by Charles Dickens A Christmas song. Reynolds stars as Ebeneezer Scrooge alongside Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer.

Ryan Reynolds posted on his Instagram, revealing the news that he would use this break in the schedule as an opportunity to step back from the film industry.

“That’s a wrap for me on spicy. I’m not sure I would have said yes to a film this challenging even three years ago,” he wrote.

“Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a lot of dreams come true,” he continued. “And this is my second movie with the wonderful Octavia Spencer.”

“Perfect time for a sabbatical from filmmaking. I’m going to miss every second of working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.”

“Today, kindness is just as important as talent. I’ve been lucky enough to work with people who are right on both counts.”

Reynolds’ wife – and a successful actor in her own right – Blake Lively couldn’t help but mock her husband at the heartfelt post. “Michael Caine did it first,” she noted, referring to the recent announcement that the 88-year-old actor is retiring.

To be spicy co-star Octavia Spencer also weighed in, praising the 44-year-old creative: “You are an amazing actor/singer and producer. I loved working with you, Will, and this outstanding cast and crew! Enjoy your free time time.”


Ryan Reynolds is known for his roles as Deadpool, Green Lantern and more recently free man. He has also received recognition for his roles in the aforementioned productions, including an MTV Movie Award nomination for Best Fight (shared with Ed Skrein & Gina Carano), along with award nominations at other events such as the Teen Choice Awards.

Reynolds was born in Vancouver, Canada. At the age of 15 he decided to pursue a career as an actor and during that time he appeared on both television and film productions including the TV series Fifteen (1996), Are you afraid of the dark? (1990), the TV movie Sabrina the teenage witch (1996).

He later made a mark on the rom-com genre, starring in Just friends next to Anna Faris (2005), Perhaps with Isla Fisher and Elizabeth Banks (2008) and The proposal with Sandra Bullock (2009).

Fingers crossed that this sabbatical isn’t too long, we love Ryan Reynolds!
