Ryan Gosling says he’ll eventually quit acting to focus on babies

As everyone knows, Ryan Gosling is a cuddlesome human snuggle pillow made of puppydogs and cupcake sprinkles, and if he ever disappeared from the public eye, Huggalo nation would be devastated (and as a regional Grand Sparklepony of Huggalo Nation, I’m authorized to make such statements). I don’t want to cause widespread panic, but Baby Goose recently told the Times (via IFC):

“I’ve been doing this since I was 12… I don’t want to act much longer; I can’t do one thing my whole life. I know there are only so many characters I’ll be able to play. It will be over whenever the inspiration dries up.”

Adding (via Movieline):

“I’d like to be making babies but I’m not, so I’m making movies. When someone comes along I don’t think I’ll be able to do both and I’m fine with that. I’ll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen.”

THE HORROR! But it’s nice to know that even if Baby Goose DOES decide to quit movies (and as IFC points out, it would be a while, seeing as he has two more movies with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn on his plate, including a Bangkok-set action film called “Only God Forgives” and a remake of “Logan’s Run”, not to mention Gangster Squad and another film with Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance), it would only be for the sweetest of reasons — to raise a flock of baby Baby Geese. He may not be the Baby Goose Huggalo Nation wants, but he’s the Baby Goose Huggalo Nation needs.

Go ahead, girl, take a ‘me’ day, you deserve it. I’ll stay home with the twins and when you get back, we can sample my homemade applesauce.
