Ryan Reynolds is going to need a private island or something to stash all his money now that he has sold his stake in Aviation American Gin. Reynolds will receive $610 million over 10 years, but will continue to represent the gin company. Let's just hope he continues making those awesome commercials.
Diageo, the buyer in the deal, agreed to buy George Clooney's Casamigos tequila in 2017 and also teamed up with Diddy to produce Ciroque vodka in 2007.
In true Ryan Reynolds fashion, he penned a pretty epic out of office reply:
"Thanks for your email. I am currently out of the office but will still be very hard at work selling Aviation Gin. For quite a long time, it seems.
In related news, I just learned what an ‘earn out’ is... And I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone I told to go f**k themselves in the last 24 hours. My lawyers just explained how long it takes to achieve an 'earn out'... so... turns out I'm not as George Clooney as I thought. The point is, to those listed below, I'm sorry... and I'll indeed be needing your help in the coming months and years. Thanks in advance!
