Ryan Gosling has given a new interview to STV Entertainment about ‘Place Beyond the Pines’, co-starring Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes, which also just premiered at TIFF. Gosling says, “"Before even Blue Valentine, Derek (director Derek Cianfrance) and I were having dinner and I was telling him about my fantasy about robbing banks and how I would do it. He had just written a script that was the exact same thing, so I said ‘I'm in’. Then years later I got the script and, you know, he forgot to mention that I'm not actually in the movie."
He also talks about a scene in the movie that was intended to be dramatic, but how he found hilarious. "The best is when Bradley, I'm sorry I keep talking about this but it's the greatest, when he like wakes up in the hospital and he like starts pulling the tubes out and they're yanking on his lip, and then they tell him not to do that and he says sorry and starts crying. That's, no one's ever comes into a movie like that. That's the best entrance. And then he ends with a fly on his face... A mosquito's sucking on him, he's crying and he's got a gun in his face and there's a mosquito the whole time. That's the greatest bookend that's ever happened. Show me where that's happened. You can't. That's funny."
