"I’ve always been surprised at how many opportunities I’ve gotten out of the things I really believed in, versus the things I thought I should be doing. I’ve had actors that I really respect tell me, ‘You’ve gotta surf-and-turf it in this town. One for them and one for you.’ That’s not true. It’s really three for them and one for you. And not only that—if you do three for them, you’ve set a precedent. Any way you point yourself is where you’re gonna go. If you point yourself in that direction, it’s hard to ever come back. Being an actor is like being a cat burglar. You try to get in and out without being noticed. As soon as you get famous, it’s like you’ve got a marching band with you every time you walk out of the house. And it’s harder to make people believe you as a character. And your work goes downhill.”
Gosling’s estimable charisma registered even in films that didn’t exactly hang a light on it, and because his performances were marvels of unselfconscious animal instinct and fine-tuned craft—to the point that you usually didn’t know where the animal ended and the fine-tuning began—his little movies still got attention, and Gosling got attention in them. He’s conducted himself the way you conduct yourself in Hollywood if all you’re after is, at most, a small but noble patch of cult-actor grass to tend, a place in the heart of critics and video-store clerks, a good seat at the Independent Spirit Awards. And yet despite his best efforts, he’s becoming a movie star. (x)

Wanna take me away from all this and make an honest woman out of me?

No ma’am, I was just hoping to take you to bed.
