Hollywood: Ryan Gosling - the thinking woman's fancyman - takes a break
Thursday 21 March 2013
Hey girl, are you sick of Ryan Gosling yet? The actor has announced he’s taking a hiatus from Hollywood, telling The Associated Press: “I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”
I’m pretty sure most women (and quite a number of men as well) would beg to differ, and happily argue that there could be no such thing as too many Ryan Gosling films.
Fans shouldn’t despair just yet, though. He still has three films due for release this year and he’ll make his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, in 2014.
But giving his reasons for going on sabbatical, Gosling goes all luvvie on us. “I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing,” he said. “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.”
Yeah, yeah Ryan. It’s only acting, darling. Just get on with it.
