Ryan Gosling On The Effect His Movies Have On Couples

“People would come up to me and tell me that they thought ["The Notebook"] was romantic, but one guy told me that he was engaged and [his fiancée] broke up with him after that movie because she said to him, ‘You wouldn’t build a house for me [like the lead character does], would you?’ He was like, ‘Well, no, but I don’t know how.’ She said, ‘But if you knew how?’ He said, ‘No, I wouldn’t. But it doesn’t mean I don’t love you.’ She said, ‘Yeah, it does.’ And she called it off.”

Ryan Gosling on how “The Notebook” is responsible for at least one breakup. Interestingly, Gosling thinks couples should see his new movie, “Blue Valentine,” together, even though it’s, frankly, kind of a bummer. Find out his reasoning for that, after the jump …

“I think it’s the best thing for a couple to see, honestly … If there is a problem in their relationship, they’re not able to look at it, and they’re caught in their own experience of it, there’s no dialogue about any of the bigger issues. I think ‘Blue Valentine’ is a cautionary tale about what can happen to love if you ignore it and you take it for granted. I think that people can see the film and can see themselves in it or say, ‘How do we keep that from happening?’”
