Ryan Reynolds has revealed that he is selling his mobile phone company to T-mobile, and the money he’s allegedly going to get for it is insane!
Now, as fans will already be aware, Reynolds is undoubtedly one of Hollywood’s best-loved actors. Since his career kicked off after his breakthrough role as medical student Michael “Berg” Bergen in the sitcom Two Guys and a Girl, Reynolds has had success after success.
Although his acting career started years before, he’s probably best known for his role as Marvel superhero, Deadpool. In fact, he even directed the second Deadpool movie.
But let’s not forget his other acting successes such as The Proposal, Buried, and The Croods: A New Age. And most recently, Free Guy.
But Reynolds is a man of many talents, he isn’t just known for his excellent acting, he is also known for his excellent humour.
Reynolds has one of the most beloved social media presences in the celebosphere.
His Twitter is loaded with golden moments, often making fun of being a husband and a father.
Reynolds often takes to Twitter and Instagram to poke fun at married life and fatherhood.
Around the time of his wife’s, Blake Lively, birthday, he often comes up with ingenious ways to share a sarcastic tribute to Lively — like his iconic poorly-cropped photo.
It’s clear to see why Reynolds has become so well-loved over the years, and why he has gained so many adoring fans.
But what you might not know about the star is he has a handful of other ventures he’s taken on in recent years. One is that he bought Wrexham AFC back in 2020, which is Wales’ oldest football club and the third oldest professional club in the world, along with his friend and fellow actor Rob McElhenney.
But that’s not all, Reynolds also set up his own mobile phone company, Mint Mobile, which he part-owns along with the founders David Glickman and Rizwan Kassim.
And he has recently revealed that he is selling it to T-Mobile for a lot of money…
T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert revealed the company’s intentions to “acquire Mint Mobile” in a video posted on Reynolds’ social media account.
In the clip, that sees the pair hug it out, Reynolds explains: “We’re incredibly excited. Mint has run on T-Mobile’s network since its inception.
“And the reason people have such a great experience with Mint is due to the T-Mobile Network. Especially because of it’s unrivalled lead in 5G.”
According to Variety, T-Mobile intends to pay the Company a maximum of $1.35 billion (£1.12 billion) in cash and stock, or 39% cash and 61% stock.
Reynolds added about the new move: “T-Mobile has assured me that our incredibly improvised and borderline reckless messaging strategy will also remain untouched.
“[…] And along with the entire Mint Mobile team and my Maximum Effort teams I’m just absolutely thrilled with every aspect of this new venture.
“I’m certain that I’m finally going to fill whatever hole I have inside my soul which possesses me to emphasise external success over quieting an inner child, futilely craving some sort of illusory acknowledgement from my now-deceased father.”
