Ryan Reynolds confirms no interest in directing, despite many offers to direct movies

Ryan Reynolds has stated that he has no desire to direct a film because he prefers to be involved in the storytelling and production of movies for the foreseeable future.

The 45-year-old actor has admitted that he does not want to follow in his wife Blake Lively’s footsteps – who directed a music video for Taylor Swift – because he believes that storytelling and producing are more important.

It genuinely doesn’t… Storytelling interests me in every way, shape, and form. Producing interests me in every way, shape, and form. Same with performing.

“And I get to work with guys like Shawn Levy. I don’t know why I would try to think I can do that on my own. That would be idiotic.”

The ‘Deadpool’ star explained that he enjoys the process of working with a director and wouldn’t want to deny himself that chance by getting behind the camera.
Ryan explained: “I also just really feel like, why would I deprive myself of that amazing collaborator? I just think that’s so important in everything that I do. I don’t ever pretend to be a person who’s just unilaterally deciding this or that.

“I love the creative process of having someone to bounce something off of. I love the creative process of trial and error, of ripping something apart and rebuilding it again. That’s the thing I’m most interested in, and I love doing that with someone.”

‘The Adam Project’ director Levy also explained how Ryan is deeply invested into the creative process during the making of a blockbuster.

The director said: “I really have to say, obviously Ryan has been a famous actor and a star for a long time, but I’ve never had an actual fellow producer alongside me who was as additive and is as additive to every step of the process as Ryan.”

Ryan Reynolds is a Canadian-born actor who has a net worth of $150 million.
