I always wanted to entertain. When I was six, a scrawny, scrawny kid, I’d get in my red speedo and do muscle moves. I actually thought I was muscular. I didn’t know everyone was laughing at me.

When Ryan Gosling’s mother, Donna, sat down with her son to watch his first leading role in film - as the ferocious Jewish neo-Nazi in The Believer - she lasted only 10 minutes before bursting into tears and locking herself in the bathroom. Watching her son so plausibly embody a desolate soul who feels nothing but furious contempt for his own heritage, she felt that she’d failed him and that he was channelling his own emotions. It took Gosling an hour to coax her out.

All my characters are me. I`m not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think `I wonder what that feels like`. Because for me, they`re all me. I relate to these characters because aspects of their personality are like me. And I just turn up the parts of myself that are them and turn down the parts that aren`t.” — Ryan Gosling

Ryan: The first time I saw First Blood, I was in the first grade. The next day I filled my Fisher Price Houdini Kit up with steak knives and I took it to school, and I threw them at the kids at recess, and got suspended. My mother said I couldn’t watch movies anymore because I was too heavily influenced by them. And then the first time I saw Rocky I went out and picked a fight, and I lost, because I thought I could fight. I thought I was Sylvester Stallone, and thought I could fight. Movies took me into their world and I had to get snapped out of it. I don’t think I’m alone in that way. You always come out of a movie, and you feel like you’re that character.

[Movies] literally turn him on, and if they don’t then he’s not interested in it. He sexualizes them, he fetishizes them. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pair of gloves or it’s the way something sits in the frame, it physically has to excite him or he’s bored. So he’s making these movies only for himself and so they feel personal. I’m just lucky that he and I, we share the same fantasy so we can take a film like Drive and it can be personal to both of us and have a very clear identity.

I feel like Gene Wilder is my Marlon Brando or something. He just presents you with an array of emotions and leaves it up to you to decide. You know, when he played Willy Wonka [in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, 1971], there was always something slightly terrifying and angry and sadistic about that character, all of which you would imagine might take away from the magic of it. But there was something about how he played it that let you see how this guy living alone in this place, as Wonka was, could have been affected by all of that, how it would have affected his emotional state. —Ryan Gosling
