New York -- Ryan Gosling needs only announce he's taking a break from acting and all hell breaks loose. Keep calm and carry on, people -- he's just going to be occupied with How to Catch a Monster, the movie he wrote and will direct.

Right now he's promoting The Place Beyond the Pines, an intense drama about fathers and sons that reunites him with his Blue Valentine director, Derek Cianfrance. Gosling stars as a motorcycle stunt driver who is part of a traveling carnival show; to help support his family, he turns to bank robbing. Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper co-star.

Luke, his character in the film,"Is very real, a mess, kind of a disaster," says Gosling.
