Ryan Phillippe says he's tired of acting and of Los Angeles and is ready to quit both.

The actor was out promoting his new film 'The Bang Bang Club,' in which he plays a photographer, when he told the New York Post he's tired of the paparazzi culture of L.A. and constantly being in the tabloid spotlight.

"It's so hard to go out in L.A. I'm going to move," he said, adding he wants to spend a third of his year in New York and has been looking at places in SoHo.

That's not the only big move he wants to make: "I think I'm going to end my acting career." he said. "I'm so introverted. I'm ready to be behind the scenes. I'm 36, but I've been doing this for 20 years." Hard to believe, since he still looks like that fresh-faced kid in 'Cruel Intentions.'
