Ryan Reynolds is gearing up for a much-needed break from acting.

The “Deadpool” star revealed he’d be taking time off from his craft in October after wrapping on AppleTV+’s “Spirited”

Reynolds was recently awarded at the Wall Street Journal Innovator Awards on Monday, November 1.

At the award ceremony he told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m just trying to create a little bit more space for my family.”

Reynolds added the importance of the break is because, “you really don’t get that time back.”

He initially announced his sabbatical on Instagram.

He wrote, “Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.”

He explained it’s time for him to “parent.”

Reynolds hasn’t announced how long he plans to take off.
