He just announced a sabbatical from shooting films.

The Deadpool actor sported a bit of scruff and gel held up his hair in its trademark style. 


The actor’s appearance came just a few days after he announced a planned sabbatical from acting following the filming of the ‘challenging’ holiday movie Spirited.   

‘Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making,’ captioned a series of photos he posted. ‘I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists.’

The star also gave his co-star Will Ferrell a shout-out and said working with him ‘made a whole lotta dreams come true.’ 

He also called Octavia Spencer ‘great’ and touted both their kindness as well as their acting abilities. 

‘These days, kindness matters as much as talent,’ he wrote. ‘I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.’

Spirited is a modern musical retelling of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Reynolds plays the lead character.

Reynolds’ better half, Blake Lively, poked some fun at her husband for his planned time off. 

The actress, 34, left a joking message in the comments of her husband’s Instagram announcement. 

‘Michael Caine did it first,’ the mother of three wrote in reference to Caine’s representatives recently telling The Wrap that the 88-year-old actor will continue working despite an earlier interview where the star said he was ready to retire.
