Going on Vacay? Let Ryan Reynolds Inspire You to Write Your Best Out-of-Office Message Ever

The jet-setting actor simply can't be chained to a desk.

The very notion seems paradoxical that it can be actually hard to take vacation days. But alas it's often true: You have projects to finish, meetings to take, dollars to save... we get it! But, if there's someone who is brilliantly unapologetic about being away from his desk, it's Ryan Reynolds. And if you watch how he does it, you may be inspired to compose your own out-of-office message, with flair, stat.

To back up: The actor now owns Aviation Gin. Basically, he sipped the stuff, fell in love, and purchased the company. This can happen, when you're Ryan Reynolds. Plus, here's another perk of being Mr. Blake Lively: You don't exactly have to sit at a desk while running a business. 

Want to reach out to Reynolds to congratulate him on his new gig? Well, you can try emailing But, you may not catch him.

In a hilarious auto-response, the actor shares: "I’m away from my desk at the moment but will respond the moment they give me a desk." He also proves that he's quite comfortable delegating his gin-related duties to the pros, while he travels the world being a movie star. "I don’t know whose idea it was to allow me into the gin business, but I can assure you, there are smarter, more reasonable people in charge," he goes on to say. 

Check out the full message, below: 

Clearly, you're now inspired to write a brilliant auto-reply of our own. So, here are your next steps: First, book that trip, preferably to a destination that serves stiff gin. (You may even run into Yolanda Hadid there.) Then, get to work! On, you know, taking off work.
