“The perfect time for a little sabbatical from filmmaking.”
Sadly, Ryan Reynolds is taking a break from his acting career.
The actor has just finished filming his new film fiery – a musical version of A Christmas Carol, starring Ryan as Scrooge, Octavia Spencer as coworker and Will Ferrell as Ghost of the Christmas Present.
In an Instagram post about the packaging, Ryan wrote: “I’m not sure I would have been willing to say yes to such a difficult movie even three years ago.”
“Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made many dreams come true. And this is my second movie with the great Octavia Spencer.”
Ryan then announced his hiatus, writing, “The perfect time for a little sabbatical from filmmaking. I’m going to miss every second of working with this group of incredibly gifted creators and artists.”
âKindness is as important as talent these days. I’ve been fortunate to work with people who have both,â he concluded.
Then his wife – Blake Lively – stepped in in the comments to do a subtle dig that Ryan wasn’t the only one saying he was stopping acting * that day, because of course she was. ‘did :
It’s unclear how this “little sabbatical” will affect Ryan’s upcoming plans, like Deadpool 3 – but, given how much her IMDb page tires me out just looking at her, I’m sure a break is a great idea (unless a break from acting = pursuing some kind of unbalanced new profession) .
Enjoy your sabbatical, Ryan!
