Ryan Gosling is planning to take a break from acting.
"I've been doing it too much," the actor told the AP.
The sexy star said he needs time to rethink things.
"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," he added. "I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."
Luckily for fans, there's still plenty of Ryan projects still to be released including "The Place Beyond the Pines," which hits select theaters on March 29, and "Only God Forgives," which is expected out in May.
