Ryan Reynolds (44) says he will stop making films for a while. The actor announces on Instagram that he will take a sabbatical after the recordings for his latest project ‘Spirited’ have been completed.

The perfect time to take a sabbatical from making movies”

“Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made many dreams come true,” Ryan reflects on the shooting of the film based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. “The perfect time to take a sabbatical from filmmaking. I’m going to miss every second of working with this incredibly talented group of creators and artists.”

Actress Octavia Spencer responds under the message that she was happy to work with Ryan and says that he should enjoy his intermission. Ryan’s wife Blake Lively, however, makes fun of the Canadian actor by writing “Michael Caine Was Before”. With this she refers to the decision of the 88-year-old actor who said on Friday that he wanted to retire. Not much later, however, the Briton came back to his statement.
