You may remember that all-around superstar Ryan Gosling -- who has two highly anticipated films coming out this fall -- made a surprise appearance in an off-screen street fight (to enthusiastic cries of "That's the guy from 'The Notebook'!" and "Oh my God, it is!") in New York City a couple of weeks ago.

Discussing the event with MTV this week, Gosling said he is "embarrassed" that he got involved at all; despite the fact that his intervention attempt was widely admired, the star says that "nobody won" -- and his appearance just "[made] it weirder."


We've seen Ryan Gosling look a whole lot more embarrassed before. For example, here's a clip of him reading entries from the blog "F*ck Yeah! Ryan Gosling" (also for MTV) earlier this year:
