Ryan Reynolds was a Forklift Driver for Safeway: LinkedIn
Vancouverites know Ryan Reynolds like a lot of things: actor, business owner, and late-night talk show prankster. Now fans are reacting to an old job title on his LinkedIn page that hints at more humble beginnings.
The job in question is apparently his first, when, just after graduating from Kitsilano High School in 1994, he took a job as a forklift driver at Safeway. When a fan asked the dead Pool star to confirm the factoid, Reynolds set the record straight.
“It was actually 1996-1997,” Reynolds wrote, correcting the LinkedIn page dates from 1995-1997 which have since been updated.
The rest of Reynold’s LinkedIn page wears the same sassy flair in true form, noting his three-decade acting career as well as his various business ventures.
“In recent years, I have built this The Wall Street Journal recently called “a business empire”. I’m still trying to figure out what they meant by that, ”the biography reads.
Well, between the theater and forklift driving, Reynolds is the Creative Director of MNTN Marketing and Advertising, the co-founder of Maximum Effort and Group Effort Initiative, owner of Aviation American Gin and Mint Mobile, not to mention the co-chair of Wrexham AFC.
Reynolds also recently received the Governor General’s Award for his contribution to the arts and philanthropic efforts across Canada.
