Ryan Reynolds has opened up about taking a break from acting, stating that he ‘wants to live life like a normal human’.
The A-list actor, who has three young children with his wife, Blake Lively, has decided it’s now time for him to step away from the limelight, just for a little while.
In his latest interview with LinkedIn, Reynolds was quizzed on his decision, to which he replied: “The biggest thing for me... is that I don’t want to miss this time with my kids.”
He explained: “When I’m shooting a film, I’m oftentimes in Europe, I’m away, there are incredibly long hours, it’s a ton of constant, kind of requirement to be there the whole time – not just because I’m performing but I’m also generally producing and writing on my movies as well.”
So, this appears to be the ‘perfect time’ for him to take a break from his impressive stint in Hollywood.
He believes all this extra time on his hands will allow him to work on his non-acting efforts - software platform MNTN and creative agency Maximum Effort, which he co-founded in 2018.
It seems we can add business man to the increasingly long list of Reynolds’ achievements.
The Deadpool actor spoke about wanting a normal life for his kids, as well as himself, as their jet-setter lifestyle took its toll.
“We were always away, so the kids were away too,” he recalled.
“Now that they’re in school, they have a somewhat normal schedule.”
Reynolds also gave listeners a brief look into what life was like at home during quarantine, as he said: “I certainly don’t miss Zoom school, but it was really lovely to have that insight and visibility into my kids’ real daily lives, and for my wife as well.”
The 45-year-old added that he enjoys doing all those normal parent things, like ‘taking them to school in the morning’ and ‘picking them up’.
“It's a juggling act,” he added in reference to his new business pursuits.
The film has been so popular that fans are already calling for a sequel.
The action-comedy film sees the three Hollywood A-listers involved in an art heist, although - as is so often the case - there's a bit more to it than that, and not everything is as it seems.
Let’s hope Reynolds will come back from his sabbatical for this one.
