Sometimes you can't believe everything you read. Or, if you're the folks over at the New York Post's Page Six, everything you hear.

It seems the paper's gossip section quoted Ryan Phillippe this morning as saying he's planning on hanging up his Hollywood hat.

"I think I'm going to end my acting career," he reportedly told Page Six. "I'm so introverted. I'm ready to be behind the scenes. I'm 36, but I've been doing this for 20 years."

However, a rep for the actor insists that's just not the case.

"He is not going to stop acting nor did he ever say that he would," a rep for the Lincoln Lawyer star tells E! News. "The Page Six story is completely incorrect."

What's more, the article also alleged that Phillippe wants to live part of the year in the Big Apple so as to get away from all the paparazzi in L.A. However, that, too, was taken out of context.

"No, he's not moving to New York," states his rep. "But he has a film that will be in production in the city soon."

Looks like we can keep our fingers crossed for that MacGruber sequel after all.
