Ryan Gosling may be one of the most famous actors in Hollywood, but the Crazy, Stupid, Love heartthrob says he didn't dream of the A-list lifestyle.
Talking about his hugely successful career, The Notebook actor says fame wasn't always high up on his to-do list.
Luckily for us, things didn't go completely according to plan.
'I never thought about being a film star,' Ryan Gosling told Spanish newspaper, La Vanguardia. 'But I came further than I ever thought. I have done incredibly well.
'I have had the same manager from the age of 14 and the same agent since I was 16. Now I can repeat and work again with the directors I like.'
Now famed for his big-screen roles in The Place Beyond The Pines and Gangster Squad, the Hollywood crush, who's currently dating Eva Mendes, says he isn't one for Googling himself either.
'I don't read what people said of me on the Internet,' he revealed, insisting he stays offline as much as possible. 'The Internet is like a minefield to me. I just simply don't enter there.'
Cue the sad realisation that we can't tweet Ryan Gosling anytime soon. But we'll always have pictures like this...
