Ryan Gosling was on the move in NYC yesterday sporting spectacles and clenching the out-of-print novel El Topo. He may be turning to books now that he's taking a break from acting. Ryan told the Associated Press that he needs to "reassess" and regain "lost perspective," saying, "I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."

The hiatus doesn't mean we won't be seeing Ryan on the big screen soon since he's currently promoting The Place Beyond the Pines ahead of its March 29 US release (May 9 in Australia). The film also stars his real-life girlfriend, Eva Mendes, and while the couple travelled to NYC last week for a press trip, they weren't spotted together in the Big Apple. Audiences can also anticipate Ryan's Only God Forgives, which is set to be released later this year.
