Ryan Gosling Opens Up About Being Arrested

Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling has turned badass, well sort of.

In 2011, after rapping up the George Clooney directed The Ides of March in Detroit, the actor/director felt inspired by the grittiness of city, and stayed to do some R&D work for his upcoming directorial debut in the film Lost River.

Gosling, equipped with a digital camera, lurked around abandon factories snagging any useful footage he could use. On the other hand, the Detroit Police department must not get out to the local movie theater often, because they detained the actor for suspicion of stealing copper. Imagine that.

“I’m not proud that I was arrested, but it did give me one of the central pieces for the main character,” Gosling told The Hollywood Reporter.

He used to be so innocent. At least it wasn’t all for nothing. Ryan actually used some of the footage in the opening scene of the movie.

When he’s not being a badass, he’s being very picky at which movie to work in next. Watch him explain in the video below.
