Ryan Gosling arrives at the premiere of "The Ides of March", in Beverly Hills, Calif., Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011.

Prepare for waves of mass mourning, Internet. Meme-god, six-pack owner, and renowned feminist Ryan Gosling says he will go on an acting hiatus in the coming months in order to “reassess.” The 32-year-old told the Associated Press, “I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective ... I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.” The actor also said the pressure of being a lead actor is not his “favorite way to work.” “The more opportunities I’m given, the more I learn about how easy it is to [expletive] it up ... You fight for freedom and then you get it, and then you have enough rope to hang yourself. It’s like trying to exercise some restraint because I do have so much freedom.” The Gos will appear in one last film before his supposed hiatus, however. Place Beyond the Pines hits theaters at the end of March.
