Ryan Gosling Taking A Break From Acting

  • Ryan Gosling announced he’s taking a (temporary!) break from acting. “I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing,” he told The Associated Press. “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.” Oh, Ryan! So humble. We don’t need a break at all. But you go take all the time you need. Hey, want a back rub? [US Weekly]
