Ryan Phillippe has announced plans to end his acting career after nearly 20 years in the spotlight.

The 36-year-old star began acting as a teenager and found fame in 1992 playing a gay youth in daytime drama "One Life to Live". He went on to enjoy a stellar Hollywood career with films including Cruel Intentions, Gosford Park and Oscar-winning drama Crash.

Phillippe is adamant he has grown tired of life in front of the camera and now intends to pursue roles behind the scenes. He also wants to move out of Los Angeles and spend more time in New York.

He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "I'm going to move. I'm going to spend a third of my year in New York… 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."
