Ryan Gosling Reveals His Secret Obsession - Knitting
January 23rd, 2013 12:03pm EST
He may have been joking, but Ryan Gosling recently told a magazine that he likes to unwind by knitting.
The actor learned the hobby while starring on the 2007 drama "Lars and the Real Girl." He admits he likes making "oddly shaped scarves" to relax.
He told Australia's GQ magazine, "I did this scene in Lars and the Real Girl where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life.
"If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf."
The film centers on Lars, who orders a sex doll that he treats as though she's his real-life, flesh-and-blood girlfriend. As he begins bringing Bianca with him everywhere he goes, the townspeople have to find just the right balance between supporting Lars' unusual romance and trying to introduce him to a more conventional partner.
