On Friday, 15 October, in an interview on the BBC Radio program Kermod en Mayo, Michael was asked if his new film Top Sellers would be his “last picture”. He replied, ‘I think it would be, yes. I was clearly not in the office for two years because no one made movies that I would like to do, but I also know, I’m 88. Scripts don’t exactly flow out [where] the leading man is 88. “
Michael later tweeted, “I did not retire and not many people know it.” He also said in a statement to Deadline, “Regarding retirement, I got up at 50:00 more than 50 years to make movies, and I’m not getting rid of my alarm clock!”
As for Ryan, the actor cites a reason why he decided to take a breather. He shares a screenshot of the career guide website on his Instagram Story Indeed’s Q&A Page on sabbaticals, which reads: “A sabbatical can last from two months to a year. Generally, six months is the standard duration for a paid sabbatical. It gives you enough time and flexibility to do things like travel, study or complete a major side project. “The actor underlines all the last words beginning with the word ‘travel’ and writes ‘Parent’.
Ryan and Blake are parents of three daughters –James, 6; Inez, 5, en Betty, 2.
