Oscars 2012: Where in the world is Ryan Gosling?
To the dismay of many fans, Ryan Gosling was missing from the Oscars red carpet Sunday.
It was rumored the actor was working on a film in Asia, and "Ides of March" screenwriter Beau Willimon — up for adapted screenplay with Grant Heslov and George Clooney — said he wouldn't find that surprising, describing Gosling as a guy who "never stops."
"That's what I think is fantastic about him: his work ethic and his determination and his love for making movies. Sometimes he comes to these things, and sometimes he's busy," Willimon said.
"But as long as he keeps making movies, that's the important thing."
And if Willimon wins tonight, he's not expecting to hear any words of congratulations from Gosling.
"It would be great to hear from him, but I know how busy he gets on set."
