Ryan Gosling fans will be able to get their fix of their favourite star with a new helpline.

The helpline, which apparently plays a message from the Drive star, has been set up by streaming firm Blinkbox to help those upset by the news that he is taking a break from acting, reported The Sun.

"To help console Ryan Gosling fans upset by the news he is taking a break from acting we've set up #TheGosline," tweeted the company.

"Call #TheGosline to hear a soothing message from your favourite Canadian hunk."

The number then rings through to a message, reportedly playing a recording of the Canadian actor's voice.

Ryan - who has also starred in Gangster Squad, Crazy, Stupid Love and The Notebook - revealed he is looking forward to stepping behind the cameras as he has been doing "too much" acting.

"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," he said.

The 32-year-old is directing his first film, How To Catch A Monster, which stars Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan and Matt Smith.
