Ryan Gosling Avoids Taking Many Movie Jobs

December 29, 2010 (4:35 am) GMT
The 'Notebook' star says he feels sick of seeing himself on screen, thus he tries not to make too many movies.

Actor turns down as many movie jobs as possible, insisting he "feels sick" when he sees himself on the big screen. Two of Gosling's latest films - "" and "" - will hit theaters in the U.S. this month and the simultaneous releases have left him with a sense of dread.

He tells the Los Angeles Times, "I try not to make too many movies. I get sick of myself, so I can imagine how everyone else feels. And for the two to come out at the same time, it makes me feel sick." But "" star admits he can't stop himself from acting - although he doesn't quite understand his passion for performing.

Gosling adds, "I don't really like doing interviews because I don't have any answers about why I act. It's like a compulsion. It's (similar to) people who eat and eat and eat and they don't know why and they keep getting fatter but they can't stop. It's like that... And then you find yourself on a set throwing yourself off a bridge, and you're asking yourself, 'Why am I doing this?' And I don't know."
