Ryan Reynolds is one of the most hardworking people in the entertainment industry. He's released 15 pictures in the last five years, including some blockbusters. So it may have come as a surprise when he just stated that he'll be taking a break from acting. However, he's now talking about why he made the decision, and his reasons aren't surprising.
In just 2021, the Canadian-born actor has acted in two of the year's most popular films: Free Guy, a tremendous box office hit, and Red Notice, which debuted on Netflix this weekend. He's been keeping fans amused on TikTok when he hasn't been busy scoring major Hollywood hits, proving he's one of the rare stars whose popularity spans many generations. As a result, his choice to take the remainder of the year off is intriguing. When Fatherly asked if he was serious about walking away from the spotlight, he explained his plans: “Well, yes and no. I’m not shooting another film. I have lots of other things I have to do, but the main point is that I’m there for my kids in the morning and night and I’m getting up with them and I’m putting them to bed at night. Those are things that I think they should be able to take for granted. Those are not things that should feel special in any way, shape, or form. So I’ll be developing tons of stuff and working during the day while they’re at school. But for the most part, yeah. I’m not going to be shooting any films for a while.”
