The Canadian actor, Ryan Reynolds, has earned his name as a brilliant actor in Hollywood. Lately, he has been trying to establish himself as a businessman as well. The actor has been a part of Mint Mobile for around 3 years. Recently, he sold his stakes to T-Mobile for $1.3 billion. But did you know, the Canadian actor could walk away with a little less but a sizeable amount?
After buying the stakes of Mint Mobile in 2019, the actor owned almost 25% of the company. When the Deadpool actor bought the stakes back then, he even showcased his classic sense of humor by joking about it. He said he would pay himself monthly $15. He recently sold his part of the stakes to another telecom giant while potentially walking out with $300 million. Although no one from the company nor did the actor reveal the portion that the actor sold, as reported by CBS News.
Mint wasn't an obvious next step after @AviationGin. Low-cost wireless isn't glamorous. Yet, in the 3+ years, @MintMobile grew exponentially and @MaximumEffort has grown to over 40 people from 3. So proud of the team and so lucky to have my partners @grd212 & @JamesWT ❤️ pic.twitter.com/VqFl3mxHaE

Not only Mint Mobile but also T-Mobile didn’t reveal any more information than the public already knows. In 2020, the father of four also sold his stakes from Aviation Gin after being a part of it for 3 years. And now he sold his stakes from the wireless service provider.
