Actor Ryan Philippe is so fed up with the paparazzi that he’s contemplating ending his acting career.

According to the New York Post Philippe disclosed on Friday night at the premiere of his new indie war film, ‘The Bang Bang Club:’ “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.”

But don’t despair Philippe fans, Access Hollywood has since reported that the statement was taken “out of context” and what the actor meant to say is that he “is looking to expand his behind-the-scenes efforts, along with continuing to do some acting.”
