Ryan Reynolds takes time off: Gin and Football instead of acting

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds (45, "Free Guy") wants to take a break from acting next year to focus on football and gin. "I'm taking a break from filmmaking, " the Canadian announced in an interview with the British newspaper Times. "Next year I want to take care of my business, including AFC Wrexham.“ He recently took over the Welsh football club, which plays in England's fifth division, with his actor colleague Rob McElhenney.

"It wouldn't bother me if they called me an entrepreneur rather than an actor," said Reynolds, who is also the owner of a gin manufacturer. "I know I didn't invent anything. I participate in things that are already excellent. Wrexham was already great before I came."

He took over the gin company because he liked to drink gin himself, reported Reynolds, whose best-known roles include the comic antihero Deadpool. "Deadpool prefers to drink tequila because he's a professed proll and would drink anything where there's a worm in it," Reynolds quipped. "What's more important to me is what I have in my mouth.“
