Uh oh, Ryan Gosling is already talking about retirement from acting

Sep. 20, 2011by: Dave Davis

Actor Ryan Gosling is dreamy, talented and very much in-demand... and apparently getting sort of tired of the whole thing.

Or he's expecting to, at least. "I’ve been doing this since I was 12," Gosling told The Times. "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."

And while we hope that inspiration remains moist for quite some time, Gosling has another hot topic on his mind. "I’d like to be making babies but I’m not, so I’m making movies. When someone comes along I don’t think I’ll be able to do both and I’m fine with that. I’ll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen."

Considering he's on everyone's wish list and has a bunch of projects in planning stages or well on the way, there's a good chance we'll see the DRIVE star on the screen for quite some time before he starts squirting out offspring, but let's hope this was just a moment of introspection leaking from his lips. Or maybe he just thinks it's all been downhill since starring in "Young Hercules."

I really get where he's coming from.


Pretending to be other people while making millions of dollars can be a real drag.

Honestly, this doesn't bother me as much as the news that Owen Wilson is still allowed to be in movies.

Seriously? I really think Gosling has the chops to be a great actor and make a lasting legacy, but get the fuck over yourself! These guys are given a job and money millions only dream about and then they piss and moan. Take a break, do a movie whenever you want, it's working great for Daniel Day Lewis. Some people never have the luxury of retirement in this country, don't get on your high horse and think about it out loud to your audience.

I always love these emo boo-hoo moments actors have. Just tell the truth .. you got your millions in the bank and you want to go spend it and when you blow through that you'll be back making movies again. Any other reason is just plain bullshit.

Meh...

Gosling is a reluctant celebrity. He takes himself very seriously and while that's great for us at the movies, it can also create semi-pretentious interviews like this in which he ponders aloud the idea of quitting the industry. He also doesn't appear to be so pretentious as to "retire" when he actually means "take a break". Nothing wrong with scaling back, Gosling, just don't give us this bullshit about an early retirement.

While I'd like for him to stay an actor, I understand his point. He wants to try something else in life (being a father?). Can't blame him. How many people in life want a change of career or what not? He just figures he'll want to do something different in life at some point. Seems reasonable to me.

This dude owns.

End of story. His performance in blue valentine is brilliant, his one in drive was weird but still amazing. He just does great movies. Even when the movies suck he's still good in them. What was it that kirsten dunst movie that movie blew but he was really good in it.
