Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds will have a net worth of more than $300 Million US Dollars After American Communications Corporation T-Mobile Offer to buy the telephone network in which it has an interest.
Reynolds owns 25% of telecoms company Mint Mobile, which T-Mobile will buy for $1.35 billion.
“We’re so thrilled that T-Mobile snubbed a strong last-minute offer from my mother, Tammy Reynolds,” the actor joked in a press release announcing the sale.
T-Mobile is the second largest mobile operator in the United States.
The actor has been actively involved in Mint advertising campaigns through his company, Maximum Effort.
That company has also created ads for Peloton, as well as its brand of gin, Aviation American Gin, which it sold to beverage giant Diageo in 2020 for $610 million.
In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Reynolds described the company’s business as “snap advertising” with the goal of creating short ads that go viral.
“Everything we’re doing is primitive. It’s fast and cheap,” he said.
In addition, the actor owns shares in the Welsh football team Wrexham AFC.
Reynolds still appears in films and is one of the highest paid actors in the world.
In fact, he was the world’s second-highest-paid actor in 2020, according to Forbes, earning more than $20 million per movie, behind Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
In an interview in 2018, he recalled his first acting role in 1991, when he was a teenager and had a side job as a newspaper delivery boy.
He was paid $150 for this performance.
“I thought he was like a billionaire,” said Reynolds.
In recent years, rumors have been circulating that he might try to buy the Ottawa Senators hockey team.
Reynolds is one of many celebrities who have businesses unrelated to movies.
Ashton Kutcher owns a venture capital firm with stakes in Uber, Skype, and Airbnb. Reddit investors Snoop Dogg and Jared Leto, to name a few.
Despite his wealth, Reynolds continues to act. He is set to star in “Deadpool 3” alongside actor Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine, next year.
