And here we thought RyGo only enjoyed stealing our breath away!
Ryan Gosling's character in The Place Beyond the Pines shares a slew of similarities with the actor's off-screen persona.. and we don't mean his penchant for tongue wrestling with Eva Mendes!!
As you saw in the super-sweet opening sequence, the fiercely adorable actor embraces the role of a wild motorcycle driver with a knack for robbing banks!!
According to one recent interview, playing a bank robber was a dream come true!!!
“I’ve been thinking about a bank robbery my whole life and I finally got to do it.”
Instead of using professional background actors in one bank robbery scene, the filmmaker instead filled it with real-life customers and employees!
Ryan admits they weren't exactly terrified of his stick-up, however:
“I’m there with the gun and I look down and people are just smiling. They were just enjoying the show and I think I spotted someone filming me on their camera phone as I robbed the place."
Ha! We'd smile and take pics too if Mzr. Gosling whipped out his gun and waved it around in our face, LOLz!!!
The Place Beyond the Pines is screening in select theaters right now; super-hottie Bradley Cooper also stars.
