Helpline therapy for Gosling fans

Ryan Gosling fans won't be deprived of their star fix

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.

It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
