Ryan Reynolds says he's sorry to all those he told to "go fuck themselves" recently.

After selling his gin brand Aviation American Gin to Diageo Plc for $610 million (R10.6 billion), reports Forbes, the actor penned a hilarious email.

According to E! News, the message read: "Thanks for your email. I am currently out of the office but will still be very hard at work selling Aviation Gin. For quite a long time, it seems.

"In related news, I just learned what an 'earn out' is... And I'd like to take this opportunity to apologise to everyone I told to go fuck themselves in the last 24 hours.

"My lawyers just explained how long it takes to achieve an 'earn out'... so... turns out I'm not as George Clooney as I thought," he said, referring to the Ocean's Eleven actor's Casamigos, which was also acquired by Diageo Plc for $1 billion (R17.4 billion) in 2017.

"The point is, to those listed below, I'm sorry... and I'll indeed be needing your help in the coming months and years. Thanks in advance," the Deadpool star quipped, with a list of names including his mom, wife Blake Lively, Dwayne Johnson and Betty White.
