Ryan Reynolds is popular for playing superheroes such as Deadpool and Green Lantern. The actor is loved for his quirky comic timing. His off-screen persona is also super funny as his witty online banters with his wife Blake Lively are loved by fans. Apart from being an accomplished actor and a doting husband and dad, not a lot of people know that Ryan Reynolds is also an entrepreneur. He had been working on the first instalment of Deadpool for over a decade and was a part of the writing and marketing team as well.
How Ryan Reynolds started his side hustle as an Entrepreneur?
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Reynolds spoke about how he got into the business of Aviation Gin. The actor revealed that when he first tried Aviation Gin, he really liked it and was passionate about the brand as well. So, the actor called up the owner and asked if you could buy out the company. Luckily, for Ryan, his business dealing was just as easy as ordering Gin.
Ryan Reynolds became one of the owners of this brand and became an integral part of their marketing ventures. Ryan is a well known public figure, which gives him more opportunities than most businessmen get to promote their company.
