Ryan Phillippe says he's ready to quit his acting career at the ripe old age of 36.

"I think I'm going to end my acting career," Phillippe recentlytold Page Six. "I'm 36, but I've been doing this for 20 years."

Although Ryan found success in films like Cruel Intentions, and I Know What You Did Last Summer, he's never been a critical darling, unlike his ex, Reese Witherspoon. But he's certainly too young to quit!

Ryan, however, may no longer want to be in front of the camera, but he's not giving up completely on showbiz. "I'm ready to be behind the scenes," Ryan says.

A source close to the actor tells X17online, "He's been talking about expanding his talents to producing and directing, but never giving up acting. Obviously he's not retiring from acting anytime soon."

Sounds like the actor might have just been having a down day. Currently promoting his new film, The Bang Bang Club, in which he plays a photojournalist, Ryan said the glare of the tabloids that chronicled his divorce, his relationship with Amanda Seyfried, and the pregnancy of his ex, Alexis Knapp has gotten to be so much for him, that he's considering moving out of LA! "I'm going to spend a third of my year in New York," Ryan revealed.

"I'm a good guy," Ryan insisted. "I'm not that guy you read about."
