Ryan Phillippe is Quitting Acting

The Superficial / April 25, 2011

You might be surprised to hear this, but Ryan Phillippe acts in movies. Or at least he did until this weekend when he told reporters at the Tribeca Film Festival that he’s tired of the paparazzi and is moving to New York to get away from them. I’m also assuming this was the exact moment the New York paparazzi took his picture forcing Ryan to rip off his hat and chew on it. Page Six reports:

“I think I’m going to end my acting career. I’m so introverted. I’m ready to be behind the scenes. I’m 36, but I’ve been doing this for 20 years.”
He said he is also tired of being tabloid fodder, probably because of his eventful love life. “I’m a good guy,” he pleaded to us at the Cinema Society after-party for his film. “I’m not that guy you read about.”

So, wait, if Ryan isn’t the guy I read about, who knocked up a random model and then started having sex with a wide-eyed taxidermy enthusiast? Jehovah’s Witnesses? Because this is exactly why I never answer the door. I ain’t ready for no kids.
