Take a deep breath; there’s sad news for Ryan Reynolds fans. The star just recently announced on Instagram that he will be taking a break after completing his movie, Spirited.
“That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago. Singing, dancing, and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great @octaviaspencer…Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.”
Followers supported the decision, while co-star Octavia Spencer commented, “You’re an amazing actor/singer and producer. I had a blast working with you, Will, and this outstanding cast and crew! Enjoy your downtime.”
Reynold, notably known for his Deadpool role, used Instagram on Saturday to share the news that after wrapping up his current project, he will be taking a sabbatical. The 44-year-old actor captioned the Instagram post, writing, “Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie-making,” he wrote. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”

Recently Reynold and Blake celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary; even at that time, the playfulness of the couple could be easily seen, both trolling and teasing each other. The Deadpool actor captioned the post at their anniversary dinner, “Our favourite restaurant with her 4th favourite date.”
And then teased her by writing, “Posting this again because I cut out my wife’s cute earrings. She trained me better than this. Sorry if I let anyone down,”
Opening up about their relationship, Reynolds revealed on the SmartLess podcast, “We were friends and buddies, and about a year and a half later we went on a double date, but we were dating separate people.”
Further adding up, he told, “Next thing you know, she was going to Boston, I was going to Boston and I said, ‘Well, I’ll ride with you.’ We got on the train and we rode together.” Reynolds said, adding, “I was just begging her to sleep with me.”
They got married in September 2012 and now have three daughters, James, 6, Inez, 5, and two-year-old Betty.
