Ryan Gosling considers taking a break from acting

Ryan tells the Associated Press that after he promotes all the movies he’s already made, he’s considering taking a break from acting:

“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.”

I know it’s easy to dismiss a handsome face (and body) but I do enjoy Gosling’s work. We’ll see if his thoughts on “hitting pause” come to fruition.
