Actor Ryan Gosling has a passion for character driven, soul searching dramas (Blue Valentine, Half-Nelson), and he makes a bit of a departure with the new comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love.  Gosling stars as a womanizer who gives a cuckolded man (Steve Carell) some priceless dating advice, but his rakish ways are changed thanks to a spirited woman (Emma Stone).

“When you do drama, you’re trying to preserve that reality on set,” says Gosling.  “Because you’re trying to preserve that reality so much so that it becomes real to you and the people who are shooting it.  When you’re doing a comedy, you’re constantly making fun of it, you’re harpooning it, you’re heckling it.  You go to the monitor and you become like those two old guys from The Muppets Show and you just start making fun of yourself.  So (they’re) very, very wildly different atmospheres.”
