Ryan Reynolds, 46,  is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, known for his charm and humor. However, the Deadpool star is not only a successful actor, he is also a savvy businessman

In 2021, he bought Welsh soccer club Wrexham alongside fellow Hollywood star Rob McElhenney, a club that had fallen on tough times. Since then, the club has seen a significant boost, especially after securing promotion to England's fourth division, just three tiers below the famous Premier League.

Thanks in part to Wrexham but also his many other successful business ventures and movie deals, Ryan's net worth has skyrocketed in the past few years. Find out just how much The Proposal actor is worth below...

What is Ryan Reynolds' net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Reynolds' current net worth is projected to be around $350 million. His value jumped up considerably after Mint Mobile, which he owned a reported 25 per cent of, was sold to telecom giant T-Mobile for $1.35 billion in March 2023. The deal likely pocketed him around $300 million and followed on from the successful sale of Aviation Gin in 2020 which was reported to be worth over $600 million and of which he owned 10 per cent.

How much money does Ryan make from his acting career?

Ryan began his acting career in the 1990s on soap operas, and has since become one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, with a string of box office hits and critical successes to his name. His biggest movies at the box office include Deadpool (2016), which grossed over $780 million worldwide, and its sequel Deadpool 2 (2018), which grossed over $785 million. He has also appeared in other successful films such as National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002), The Proposal (2009), Safe House (2012), and 6 Underground (2019), among others.

While it isn't possible to find out exactly how much of Ryan's earnings per year come from his acting career, it's safe to say that his successes will have regularly boosted his business related fortune. Forbes estimated that in 2020, Ryan's yearly earnings were somewhere in the region of $71 million dollars, but as previously discussed this is unlikely to have come solely from his work onscreen.

How much does Ryan Reynolds make from his businesses?

With investments in various businesses, including Aviation American Gin, which he acquired in 2018 and has since helped to turn into a thriving brand, Ryan's net worth has grown substantially over the past ten years. In August 2020, Ryan sold Aviation Gin to Diageo in a deal that could ultimately be worth $610 million.

In June 2023, Ryan's firm Maximum Effort investment joined the private equity firm RedBird Capital Partners and Otro Capital in purchasing a 24 percent stake in French Formula 1 team Alpine, which is owned by the Renault Group. Maximum Effort is also Ryan's production and marketing agency, and the name he has given to his new TV channel, which he has launched on FuboTV.

What real estate does Ryan Reynolds own?

Ryan has been married to actress Blake Lively since 2012, and the couple have four children together. They have owned several properties throughout the years, including a $2.35 million home in New York and a $5.7 million estate in Pound Ridge, New York. They also own a $2.8 million home in the Hollywood Hills and a $6.19 million home in Bedford, New York.
