Ryan Gosling - Ryan Gosling Will Quit Films

Ryan Gosling wants to retire.

The 30-year-old actor - who began his showbusiness career as a member of the 'All-New Mickey Mouse Club' when he was 12 years old - wants to try other things in his life but doesn't yet know when he will end his career.

He said: "I've been doing this since I was 12. I don't want to act much longer. I can't do one thing my whole life. I know there are only so many characters I'll be able to play. It will be over whenever the inspiration dries up."

Ryan can next be seen in 'Drive', and while the violence in the film has caused some controversy, Ryan loves the disturbing scenes and finds them "fascinating".

He added in an interview with The Times newspaper: "You make movies to fill a giant screen. I was it with people who screamed and cheered like at a soccer game. They weren't sure if it was a joke.

"Were we serious? It was so violent we had to be, but it was so violent how could we be?

"I love the violence. It's fascinating how primal it is. We didn't really concern ourselves with its authenticity. It was more of a symbol of my character's emotional landscape."
