Ryan Reynolds just made a cool billion bucks – and it wasn’t from his latest movie.
T-Mobile announced Wednesday that it would acquire Mint Mobile, the budget mobile carrier partially owned by Reynolds, for a price tag of $1.35 billion.
T-Mobile is looking to expand its line of prepaid phones. Mint says it will continue to operate as a “separate business” while Reynolds remains in a “creative role”.
Reynolds tweeted “I never dreamt I’d own a wireless company and I certainly never dreamt I’d sell it to T-Mobile. Life is strange and I’m incredibly proud and grateful“.
Do you think T-Mobile would have been as interested in Mint if Reynolds wasn’t involved?
