“When I look at the movie, I see this melting pot of all these masculine clichés: motorcycles, muscles, tattoos, guns, and yet when faced with this mirror, which is his child, he sees that none of those things make you a man.”

Obviously, I am first in line at every Ryan Gosling movie, but when a film prompts my man to talk all smart-like about traditional gender roles and behavior to The New York Times, I get extra, extra excited to see it. I know it’s gonna be a little rough to watch Ryan macking on real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes in “The Place Beyond The Pines,” but I’ll deal. Another tidbit from the Times interview? Apparently, Ryan went a little buck wild experimenting with his character’s (fake) tattoos. “I was trying to create a portrait of somebody who had made a lifetime of bad decisions, and tattoos were the best way,” he said. “[But] I had no restraint. They were crawling up towards my face.” That includes the exclamation point underneath his eye, which director Derek Cianfrance insisted he keep on for filming. I dunno, face tattoos aren’t really my think, but Ryan makes it work. Check out a shot of his (fake) back tattoo after the jump! [NYTimes]
