Ryan Gosling to Take Acting Hiatus
Say it isn't so! Just as Ryan Gosling has succeeded in the ascent from The Mickey Mouse Club to A-list actor, he has decided to call it quits for the time being.
"I've been doing it too much. I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does... The more opportunities I'm given, the more I learn about how easy it is to [expletive] it up. You fight for freedom and then you get it, and then you have enough rope to hang yourself. It's like trying to exercise some restraint, because I do have so much freedom."
Don't panic just yet - the Drive actor will next be seen in director Derek Cianfrance's Place Beyond the Pines, his follow-up film to Blue Valentine, (which Gosling starred in) and he just finished wrapping on an untitled Terrence Malick project.
