Ryan Gosling Speaks on Dating His Co-Stars & Taking a Career Break

Posted by PZ on March 21st, 2013


Ryan Gosling seems to be in a steady relationship with Eva Mendes, but the actor has spoken on how he feels about dating co-stars. He believes it can actually be a pro to meet someone on set because you get to see how creative they are as a person and it is easy to see if you click well with them. He thinks it’s the fastest way to get familiar with a potential romantic partner for this reason:

“Working with someone is the best way to get to know someone, especially if it’s a creative endeavor, when you work creatively with somebody, it’s very telling and you sort of fast-track with everyone.”

Ryan denies that he wants to be a lead man and says he often likes to restrain himself because he thinks too much freedom can actually do negative things and it is often better for him to take a lesser part for this reason:

“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.”

Ryan also reveals that he plans to take a break from acting for now. He states that “I’ve been doing it too much,” and wants some time to himself. Head over to AllieisWired to get the full scoop on Ryan’s career hiatus and his personal reasons for taking time off.
