Sorry, guys - Ryan Gosling is taking a legit break from acting. We're sure there's already a Tumblr for everyone to share their feelings of sadness and cope with this devastating news together.

Gosling made the unofficial announcement during a recent interview. "I've been doing it too much," he said. "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." 

Worry not, though - Gosling still has a few new projects due out to tide everyone over until he ends his hiatus and becomes the subject of more Feminist Ryan Gosling memes. First, there's The Place Beyond the Pines due out on March 29th, and then his second collaboration with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, which is due out in May. After, he'll be directing his first film - the script for which he also wrote - called How to Catch a Monster.
