Ryan Gosling has a new interview with Movieline about his new movie ‘Place Beyond the Pines’, which just premiered at the Toronto International Film festival. When asked by the interviewer if he felt the media focused too much on the superficial aspects of his fame, Gosling replies, "I’m not really allowed to have an opinion so I just choose to not think about it. It is what it is."
His director, Derek Cianfrance (who also worked with him in Blue Valentine) says of Gosling, "We've all seen him save people from getting hit by a car, and we've all seen him break up fights in the city. He makes the world a better place. And that's what he does in a movie. He makes me a better filmmaker and everyone around him better."
Gosling has increasingly proved himself to be one of the most versatile working actors of his generation, proving himself to have both strong comedic and dramatic acting chops. In particular, Gosling really showed his range last year – after focusing mostly on dramas prior, he showed that he can do comedy just as well with ‘Crazy Stupid Love’.
Place Beyond the Pines is directed by Derek Cianfrance and co-stars Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper.
