Ryan Gosling is apparently sick of himself! I mean, how can that possibly be?
Gosling, seen here leaving his hotel in New York City, announced in a recent interview that he was going to take a break from acting. The 32-year-old actor felt he had over-saturated the market and would go on a Hollywood hiatus after the release of his upcoming film, The Place Beyond the Pines.
“I’ve been doing it too much,” Gosling explained. “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 fuck it up,” he talked about the pros and cons of being a bona fide movie star. “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.”
I have a feeling that this break from acting is going to launch another meme.
