Ryan Gosling to take a break from acting. The Canadian actor is planning to so he will not become over-exposed. The thirty two year old did start his career at eight years old, he was from the Mickey Mouse Club. He had also starred in Crazy, Stupid, Love to The Ides of March, he wants to step back in order to gain some perspective to his life.
He tells the Associated Press,
“I’ve been doing (acting) it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing. 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.
Gosling is convinced that the time off will prevent him from making a career mistake – or feeling too complacent, he adds,
“The more opportunities I’m given, the more I learn about how easy it is to (f**k) 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.”
