EXCLUSIVE Interview With Ryan Gosling On 'Lost River'


Watch Ryan Gosling Discuss His New Movie Lost River

The star catches up with Heart's showbiz editor in an exclusive interview about his new film.


In an exclusive interview, Heart's showbiz editor Charlie Girling catches up with the actor-turned-director to discuss his new film.

As Ryan Gosling prepares for the release of this directorial debut, we catch up with the heartthrob to chat about the differences between acting and directing and how he managed his new venture.

When asked about how why he decided to make the move from actor to product manager, the 34-year-old replies that he adapted to the transition "pretty naturally". 

"It wasn't really a conscious choice to direct" the father-of-one explains. "I had the opportunity to work in Detroit… and I was just really affected by what was going on there, as Detroit the birth place of the American dream… but to see what's happening now, there's just 40 miles of abandoned neighbourhoods."

It's a cause that is obviously very close to his heart as the passionate director talks emotionally about how many local people's "dream has been turned into a nightmare".

When asked about his casting choices, Heart discovered why Ryan picked 'Dr Who's' Matt Smith for his lead role: "He was very intense… and brought a lot of great ideas to the role" Gosling explains.

Finally Heart can reveal the details of the handsome blonde's next project: "I'm just about to go and do a film called 'The Big Short'." The Hollywood hunk will be working alongside Steve Carell, Brad Pitt and Christian Bale… not bad for a day job!
