Ryan Gosling May Retire Early

Ryan Gosling, who’s getting rave reviews for Drive and is in the Oscar-baity Ides of March, says he’s been mulling early retirement. He tells The Times,

“I’ve been doing this since I was 12… I don’t want to act much longer; I can’t do one thing my whole life. I know there are only so many characters I’ll be able to play. It will be over whenever the inspiration dries up.”

Gosling is only 30 so it’s doubtful he’ll retire any time soon. Nicolas Winding Refn is already collaborating with Gosling on two more films and Ryan has signed on for The Gangster Squad. Plus, the millions of dollars people throw at him for reading lines off a script is a hard job to pass up. I mean, what else is he going to do. Not like he can break up a street fight with his dulcet tones every day.

This guy is awesome. Huge Gosling fan. Gosling the person, Gosling the actor. If more people in Hollywood were as genuine, they’d be much happier with themselves.
