America is going to have to want Ryan Gosling as an internet meme for a while, it seems. The actor recently told AP's Jack Coyle that he's taking a break from acting, saying "I've been doing it too much." He explained:

"I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."

But don't worry, Gosling is weening America off slowly-- he stars in "The Place Beyond the Pines," to be released this spring, will soon begin filming his directorial debut with "How To Catch A Monster," and has two other projects in various stages of production.
