Ryan Gosling Admits He's Shy & Not Interested in 'Fake' Hollywood

Ryan Gosling reads messages on his phone while pumping gas into his SUV on Friday (May 29) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actor recently chatted about his shy nature.

“I’m shy. And I like flying under the radar. I’ve never been interested in all this Hollywood glamour. It’s far too shallow and fake. I’d much rather spend time with my family or friends. Or by myself,” Ryan shared to Germany’s Maxim magazine (via Washington Post).

He added, “I think it’s very important to take some time for yourself. I play guitar, watch old Hollywood movies and just have a bit of a daydream.”

    Aww.. Love Ryan

    Why is he a movie actor, then? Not like someone’s forcing him into it. Do stage work or something if you don’t want attention or Hollywood glamour. What a phony.

    They all say the same BS, to look ‘real’

    He’s an actor. That doesn’t mean you have to buy into becoming a star. I think his career choices have shown he wants to be part of good filmmaking and not just churning out junk. He gets no shade from me.

    Ryan once said that he came to Hollywood when he was a teenager to be a character actor. Someone like Gary Oldman who could play exciting roles and fly under the radar unlike bigger movie stars that courted more attention. The whole “heartthrob” thing was not something Ryan expected. I believe this quote is him expressing his need for privacy when that’s so hard to get nowadays.

    Good, grounded all around Canadian boy. Good for him. Not everyone wants to take selfies of their ass cr*ck and shirtless photos to milk the fantasies of others. You can be real and work in the film industry. It is not that it is impossible it is simply rare because it seems the need for attention drives most in the biz. Nice change. Waving at the Kartrashians, Anistons…….etc.

    Is he still involved with Eva Mendes? Can’t get more fake than that.

    Actually for the most part unless she’s promoting a movie or more recently her fashion line. She largely appears to stay out of the spot light. Not crazy about her, but facts are facts. There are quite a few in Hollywood that would milk her boyfriend for all he’s worth. Yet she’s largely kept things to herself and quite a few have said that was true of her last long-term relationship too. Seems like a pretty real person to me. Can’t even trust some family members to keep my secrets😏
