Presumably so that he can spend more time with his mohawked, one-sock-wearing, apple-eating dog, Ryan Gosling is taking a break from acting according to Us Weekly. Which means that all the critically-acclaimed indie roles will now go to, I don’t know, Shia LaBeouf I guess? Ugh. Gross.

Hey girl … Ryan Gosling’s starting to get sick of himself. The Place Beyond the Pines actor revealed in a recent interview that he’s planning to go on a Hollywood hiatus in the coming months, saying that he needs time to “reassess.” “I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing,” the 32-year-old actor told The Associated Press. “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 self-deprecating star continued.

NOOOOOO! He’s so lovable and self-effacing! He’s like the boy version of Jennifer Lawrence! What are we supposed to do now that he’s gone? Pretend that Shia LaBeouf is a relatable male lead for indie dramas? Because he isn’t! Shia LaBeouf can’t carry a movie the way our beloved Gosling can!
