It’s a sad day!
Ryan Reynolds has announced he is taking a step away from acting.
The Deadpool star made a heartfelt statement on Instagram, announcing he is taking a sabbatical after he finishes his current film, Spirited, which he’s starring in alongside Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer.
“I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists,” the Van Wilder star said, ”These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”
In true #Rively fashion, Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively, took a light-hearted jab at her famous beau.
“Michael Caine did it first,” she commented on the post, referencing The Dark Knight star's recent announcement that he, too, is giving acting a back seat.
Whether he comes back in the near future or moves on to focus on his gin empire, we wish Ryan the best!
But we do quietly hope we eventually get that Deadpool 3!
