VIDEO: Watch the Teaser for Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut

And you thought that Only God Forgives was a little strange?

Ryan Gosling makes his directorial debut with the fantasy thriller Lost River (previously titled How to Catch a Monster), in which his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks plays a woman named Billy who finds herself in the city's underbelly while her son (Iain De Caestecker) discovers a lost underwater town. The teaser trailer (above) features Doctor Who star Matt Smith (whose character is aptly named Bully) tormenting De Caestecker as he demands him (and the audience?) to "Look at my muscles!"

Saoirse Ronan Disappointed After ‘The Hobbit’

Saoirse RonanSaoirse Ronan felt "really disappointed" to turn down a role in The Hobbit.

The 19-year-old actress was rumored to be starring in the three part fantasy adventure, directed by Peter Jackson - whom she had previously worked with on The Lovely Bones - but decided it would be better to focus on other projects.

"There was talks about me playing the wood elf Itaril but I had to turn it down. I was really disappointed but there were other projects I had to consider and to spend a year doing The Hobbit wouldn't have left me time for anything else," she said.

The Irish star is currently filming Ryan Gosling's How to Catch a Monster, which she is finding "a bit twisted," and also has a string of other films in the pipeline. "I'm filming How to Catch a Monster, which is Ryan Gosling's writing and directing debut and it's cool, dark and a bit twisted, too. It's about an underwater town, and the struggles of the characters living in this dilapidated place. And I'm in Violet & Daisy, in which I play a hit girl. How I live Now and The Grand Budapest Hotel are all coming out in the next year. Then I'm due to play Mary Queen of Scots in a movie about her starting soon," she said.

Ryan Gosling Reveals Unusual Habit in ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ Doc

Ryan Gosling on the set of 'How to Catch a Monster'Ryan Gosling used to shove movies down his pants. The Only God Forgives actor was so obsessed with cinema as a child that he would hide copies of his favorite flicks in his trousers when his mother tried to punish his bad behavior by taking them away.

Ryan made the frank confession in James Toback and Alec Baldwin's forthcoming movie-making documentary Seduced and Abandoned, which screened to positive reviews at the Cannes Film Festival this week. "I loved movies so much, sometimes, I'd shove them down the front of my pants. I liked the way they feel," he said in an interview.

The documentary - which was filmed at last year's Cannes festival in France - gives a warts-and-all insight into the process of getting movies made and follows the 30 Rock actor as he tries to schmooze producers, financiers, journalists and actors to get on board a proposed film production starring himself and Neve Campbell.

Getting Into Character: Matt Smith in ‘How to Catch a Monster’

Matt Smith in 'How to Catch a Monster'

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has ditched his bow tie, dapper suits, and tousled hair for Ryan Gosling.

The 30 year-old British actor was seen on set of Gosling's directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. Likely trying to break out of his (much beloved) Doctor Who shell, Smith's character is a far cry from a Time Lord with his shaved head and outfits sans shirts (though I'm not complaining).

Ryan Gosling to Take Acting Hiatus

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celeb News,

Ryan GoslingSay it isn't so! Just as Ryan Gosling has succeeded in the ascent from The Mickey Mouse Club to A-list actor, he has decided to call it quits for the time being.

"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 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."

Don't panic just yet - the Drive actor will next be seen in director Derek Cianfrance's Place Beyond the Pines, his follow-up film to Blue Valentine, (which Gosling starred in) and he just finished wrapping on an untitled Terrence Malick project.

The Vow and The Notebook

Channing Tatum thinks that his kiss with Rachel McAdams in The Vow wasn't as good as hers with Ryan's Gosling in The Notebook.

The 32-year-old actor is up for the Best Kiss accolade at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, but isn't confident his smooch in the film is of the same caliber that his 31-year-old rival brought to the romantic scenes. 
Ryan and Rachel, 33, won in the same category in 2005 and recreated their lip lock on stage while accepting the award.

Carey Mulligan Praises Drive Director, Ryan Gosling

Carey Mulligan on the set of DriveCarey Mulligan loves the "brutal" honesty of director Nicolas Winding Refn. The Oscar-nominated actress worked with the filmmaker on new movie Drive, and says it was a dream come true because he's always been someone she's admired.

"I emailed my agent and said, 'I just want to work with someone like Nicolas Winding Refn - anyone who makes films like he does.' Nick is the most brutally honest person I have ever come across and when we walked into his house he turned around and said, 'Ah, Carey, you were much fatter last time we met!' He will always tell me if I'm being rubbish. And from then on we just had the best time making Drive. He was on my fantasy wish list, so I was just thrilled to be in it."

As well as working with Nicolas, Carey loved starring alongside Ryan Gosling in the film as he was so easy to work with: "With Ryan it was just easy. He is such a brilliant actor. He is so prepared and he doesn't have to warm himself up to be in a scene. He just draws you in. We had scenes where we stared at each other with no words for three minutes until it was, like, weird. But somehow I kinda feel like it works because the rest of the film has all these very complex, witty, intelligent and terrifying characters. And this is the part of the film where there is a little bit of hope. It is quite nice."
