Ryan Gosling is getting sick of himself!
The actor is planning to go on a Hollywood hiatus in the coming months, saying that he needs time to “reassess.”
“I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing,” he said.
“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 hoping to find some clarity by taking a much-needed step back.
“I don’t know what I’m doing,” he admitted. “I haven’t quite figured out what the balance is between being able to be lost in it — or try to, anyway — and then step outside of it.
“There’s a lot of pressure to be the lead of a film. I have done it. It’s not my favorite way to work.
“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.”
