Matt Damon Thinks Ryan Gosling Needing A Break Is Ridiculous!

Matt Damon don't need no time off!

During a recent interview, the Elysium star was asked if he ever felt like he needed to take a break like Ryan Gosling.

The hard-working actor balked at the notion of an acting vacation. He said:

"Look, I mean most people get two weeks off a year. So, there are very few actors who are working that consistently. So, even if I have three movies coming out, people say, 'Wow, you don't stop working.' Well, I actually do. And I never felt like I needed to take a year and just 'clear my head.' Like it was all 'just too much.'"

Wow, still so down to earth! We just love a movie star that remembers what it was like to be a working stiff!

But at the same time, a RyGos has to do what a RyGos has to do. We just don't know! They're both so hot compelling in their arguments.

    I used to not care much for Damon, but, he's won me over with his low-key, no-fuss attitude. I've watched him be interviewed on a few shows and he really seems to be a nice guy. Normal, not an inflated ego etc. you don't hear about him: boozing, drugging, whoreing, partying, gambling etc. "If" he's into any bad stuff, he's smart enough to keep it to himself, but, I suspect he's just a sweet, regular guy who is an excellent actor. I'm a fan now and always will be. Go Matt!
    (Oh, and I agree with him about Gosling…life's tough, deal with it.)

    That comment's gratuitous, and unnecessary. Meow. Yeah, Gosling's doing very well.
    He's also quite musical (creative), and artistic people need more wiggle space. Damon's in his work horse years, and forgets the time younger people need to sort their lives out.

    Thank you Matt Damon! I am so sick of hearing how these celebs 'deserve a vacation', when then get more time off than the majority of people, and have the money to go and do whatever they want. THey get to pick and chose their projects and then they have the nerve to complain about how hard it is to be a celebrity. Matt's recognition of the average person is refreshing.

    Gosling is such a phony. And he knows he's a phony.

    Gosling isn't taking a break because he needs a "vacation" he is taking it because he felt like he needed reevaluate the type of movies he was doing, that he was losing sight of the direction he wanted to go in as an actor.

    I like Damon, I do but he came off kind of pompous here. Congratulations, you are perfectly fine being a "any movie will do" type actor, others don't feel the same.

    Re: Liebchen
    Hey, anybody who's favorite actor was not only in Gangster Squad, but who also was the worst thing IN Gangster Squad shouldn't really be throwing stones.

    I've been telling you guys ryan is a jackass. Ive got real sources. He's an ass Ryan needs to be brought down a peg he's full of it

  8. Sources!?! says – reply to this


    Re: kandycane – ahh…sources huh….just like Perez does.."real" sources!? U r too fucking funny!

  9. @v@ says – reply to this


    Gosling works non stop, so it's ridiculous to imply any less of a work ethic. People who take stock and re-evaluate have a better chance of heading in the direction they want to go.
    Gosling has major screen charisma. Damon was physically stunning in Bourne.

    Gosling is a great actor. Only needed to take time off because if you didn't know this about him, he only takes roles he feels he can relate to. And recently felt like he was losing perspective on what he's doing as an actor. He wasn't saying he needed a vacation, it was more along the lines of, "I'm losing my roots, and I need to take a break to re-evaluate what I'm doing and why I'm doing it."
    Gosling is a quality actor. And unfortunately, Damon has been taking any role that is thrown in his face lately. Elysium, Promised Land, We Bought a Zoo. All poor movies with little quality.
    I like them both, I would never hate on Damon, he seems like a nice guy. But this comment was unnecessary.

    Little disappointed in Matt for even commenting on it. He doesn't know the details of Ryans personal life and nor do we. Maybe something deeper is going on and he just wants to step away for a bit. Not everyone wants to be in constant project after project. I think with Matt it's more of a "if I stop, they will forget me". I just don't think he should be ragging on the guy if he wants to do some soul searching and traveling. You build up this empire, whats the point of you don't stop and breathe once and a while? Lot's of actors step away for a bit.

    I feel like Perez twisted this a bit. Damon doesn't mention Gosling in this at all. He probably was just commenting on a simple question of whether he will be taking any breaks in his acting and I would be willing to bet it had nothing to do with Gosling in the first place. Just Perez trying to get people fired up over nothing again.

    The fact that Gosling's ridiculous posing could ever be perceived masculine by anybody makes me despair of ever finding a REAL man for my granddaughters. Matt's right.

    This is simply ridicolous! Ryan Gosling is a workalcohilic. He is working his ass off in his movie. He in not on holiday!

    Re: Anna77 – Exactly what I was thinking, this doesn't seem to be a comment on Ryan Gosling's break or work ethic and just what Matt Damon believes overall…that he already works less than an average person so he doesn't need the break as he already gets it.

    I would be great if this wasn't taken out of context. What Ryan said was he wanted to step back and look at what he is doing. He thought he was putting out too many movies. Not that he was tired and needed a vacation. He also took off to direct his first movie. He is editing it now. That takes time. He didn't say he was giving up acting. He is not a diva. He is pretty much known as one of the good guys in Hollywood. Maybe Matt should have been told the facts properly, rather than them trying to make this some kind of splashy story. Know what you are talking about Matt, before you open you mouth.
