#Trending Now Ryan Gosling ÔIÕM A Feminist. It Makes Senseõ
#film chatted to Ryan actual Gosling about his directorial debut, #music
Hey, ryan. So, first things first – congrats on directing your first film! How does it feel? It’s exciting. It’s cool to finally have it come out. All in all it’s [taken] three years [to make], so that’s very different from any experience I’ve ever had. When you’re acting, you only spend a few months with something, so to have this amount of time is really like a marathon. Why did you choose to set the film in detroit? I had a romantic idea of Detroit as a kid. It was the birthplace of the American dream. And then when I got there it was very different. Families trying to keep their homes while their neighbourhoods are being torn down around them. It’s like that dream has become a nightmare. I wanted to make a film about that. The ‘hey girl’ memes are still everywhere. What do you think of them? [Laughs] I don’t know what to make of that. It’s a ‘wrong place, wrong time’ kind of thing. I think I came around when they started making memes or something, I don’t know! What about the ‘feminist ryan Gosling’ cartoons – how do you feel about them? I don’t know. I have really strong female characters in my life. I always have, so I feel like it makes sense… So you would describe yourself as a feminist? Oh yeah. Sure!
