It was about a month ago when your heart stopped beating (just. stopped. beating.) because Ryan Gosling announced he was breaking up with the whole planet, nay, universe, and taking a break from acting.
Since every detail involving you and your totally-real-you-don’t-know-why-no-one-in-the-office-believes-you-boyfriend Ryan Gosling is super charged and dramatic, “break” turns into “retiring” turns into you uncontrollably sobbing “WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME RYAN, WHY?!”
That’s when Ryan took you delicately by the hand, removed the knife in your hands (because you’re insane), to calmly explain, “It’s not you, it’s me, babe. I’m directing now.”
And he wasn’t just whispering sweet nothings. He spoke the truth.
The actor was just snapped on the set of his directorial debut, the fantasy feature How to Catch a Monster, in Detroit yesterday.
He was dressed down in a simple graphic tee and black jeans for the candid photo, one that would look really great in the PowerPoint slideshow you’ll play for the guests at yours and Ryan’s wedding.
If you don’t want to have those fantasies crushed, however, then close your eyes right now.
No, seriously, close them right now.
Because Ryan’s girlfriend, actress Eva Mendes, also stars in the film.
