A year today we had the official press conference for The Place Beyond The Pines, that was held in New York City at Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
That day Ryan did many interviews with many different journalists from different Countries.
Of that day, we have beautiful official pictures:
and some "unofficial" ones taken by fans/journalists who was there
On 20th March - few days after the Conference - the Associated Press released an interview by Jake Coyle - who works at the AP - taken with Ryan (surely during the promotion for the movie):
This is what Ryan said:
"I've been doing it too much. 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."
The Gosling fans were desperate, the new appeared everywhere and the GosLine was created.
But Ryan saved us.
In an interview taken on 28 March 2013 at The Place Beyond the Pines Premiere in NYC, he said:
"I should have been more clear; I’m just taking a break to direct. I’m sorry about that."
Sweet sweet Ryan, thanks for letting us know you were just taking a break (honestly, I wrote it on my Facebook Page: How to catch a monster was already in pre-production).
I do remind you that Ryan is not new to a "break" (from 2007 to 2009 for instance).
Anyway, since that 28th March 2013 we had just a public appearance of our Ryan for the Only God Forgives premiere in NYC (16th July) and few pictures taken by fans with him (in Detroit, in Iceland and later in Los Angeles).
At the moment there are no news about him (ignore the gossips please).
The movie may be in post-production or ready: we don't know.
It can be premiered in Cannes or at Tiff: we don't know.
But here we are. Still waiting for him to be back.
