Ryan Phillippe is not quitting acting

Don't believe those rumors that Ryan Phillippe is ready to leave behind his  acting career. According to his rep, Phillippe has plenty of emoting ahead of him.

"He’s been talking about expanding his talents to producing and directing, but he has no plans to stop acting nor did he ever say that he was considering doing so," the spokesperson tells "Access Hollywood."

Phillippe sparked reports of his retirement in an interview with the New York Post's Page Six. Speaking about celebrity, he said, "It's so hard to go out in LA. I'm going to move. I'm going to spend a third of my year in New York."

He had been looking at apartments in the city, he said, adding, "I think I'm going to end my acting career. I'm so introverted. I'm ready to be behind the scenes. I'm 36, but I've been doing this for 20 years."

He could very well be busy for the next 20 years—or at least through 2013. Besides his new Tribeca Film Festival entry "The Bang Bang Club," Phillippe has four more films in the pipeline over the next two years.

    He looks odd to me. Like a gayboy. All of you trolls and loosers need to grow up. He seems like a gayboy.

    He needs to grow up and stop being such a brat. He is 36 and he has no other talents. What else can he do?

      If you can call Phillippe "a brat" then you can say it about anybody.

      He's never been a brat and doesn't have a reputation of being one either.
