Ryan Gosling Taking a Break From Acting

Terrible news guys. After he’s done promoting all the movies he’s filmed, Ryan Gosling may take a break from acting. It’s not the retirement he alluded to a couple years ago but it might be close.

“I’ve been doing it too much,” he says of acting. “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.” AP

Ryan Gosling is pretty much one of the few all around heartthrobs of this generation. Sure you have Robert Pattinson but he only appeals to the vampire-loving demographic. Gosling’s appeal is universal. Even men have a Trapper Keeper full of “<3 Ryan Gosling” scribbled in them.

So the question now becomes, “what’ll Ryan Gosling do if he takes an acting sabbatical?” My guess is go back to¬†stopping street fights with his soothing voice or saving people from getting hit by cars. Like a superhero? Yes, like a superhero.
