Ryan Gosling has been out of the spotlight for a while now, so if you're anything like us, you'll be thrilled to see Ryan smirk his way through a scene in James Toback's documentary Seduced and Abandoned. The film, directed by James and Alec Baldwin, takes place at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, and it captures the roller coaster of finding the money to make a movie. In it, they interview famous faces like Martin Scorsese, Jessica Chastain, and Ryan, who lends his trademark charm to insights about Hollywood, the awkward auditioning process, and the agony of being an actor. Opening up about LA culture, he says, "Everybody's left their families, their homes, their friends, their jobs to pursue a dream where they know that the percentage of them achieving that dream is never. And they do it anyway." The film premiered at Cannes in 2013, and this past Fall, it aired on HBO, where you can watch it now.
