Ryan Gosling Covers 'New York' Magazine
The 30-year-old Blue Valentine and All Good Things actor chatted about his film’s rating and staying in the moment.
On the MPAA’s NC-17 rating for Blue Valentine: “[They're saying it's] okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex.”
All Good Things co-star Kirsten Dunst, on Ryan: ““Ryan is kind and adorable, yet also really dark and weird and manipulative. Everything you’d want in an actor.”
On staying in the moment: “I know it sounds dramatic, but every movie I make is the first and last. It’s important for me to think that the things you’ve made, they’re in the past. It’s what you’re making now that matters.”
