Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling has been in the acting industry since he was very young and he has taken on a huge amount of interesting and exciting movie roles over the years, giving us some fantastic performances along the way. Ryan has now spoken about his views on the acting industry admitting that, while he is happy to hide behind the characters he plays, he is not interested in the whole Hollywood glamour side of things.
Gosling told Germany's Maxim magazine, "I wasn't very good at singing and dancing, which really frustrated me for a while. That's why I tried some serious acting, which luckily worked out pretty well. Alongside that, it was good for my confidence. I was able to hide behind characters and still, secretly, reveal things about myself. I still enjoy that aspect today."
He added, "I'm shy. And I like flying under the radar. I've never been interested in all this Hollywood glamour. It's far too shallow and fake. I'd much rather spend time with my family or friends. Or by myself. I think it's very important to take some time for yourself. I play guitar, watch old Hollywood movies and just have a bit of a daydream."
As far as his career is concerned, Ryan Gosling has tried his hand at the directing side of things, with his film Lost River and, while it has received less than positive reviews from the critics, Ryan is still very proud of the movie he made. We are big fans of Ryan Gosling the actor though and cannot wait to see him back on the big screen in the near future.
