Is Ryan Reynolds quitting Hollywood?

Before shedding light on his sabbatical, Ryan Reynolds spoke about his latest movie, “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.” He continued, “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…”

The actor then dropped the bomb saying, “Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.” He concluded, “These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both. Apart from his wife Blake Lively, Reynolds’ close pal Hugh Jackman too wrote a comment on his post with just one word ‘IN’. Speaking of him quitting Hollywood, the actor only spoke about his sabbatical and did not elaborate on when he will be making his comeback.
