“Ryan Gosling: Personally I feel like Blue Valentine is a hopeful movie because I think it addresses something that needs to be addressed. The only way to heal from something is to address it, acknowledge it, and then move forward. A lot of times when you get into a fight with whoever you’re with, it helps bring you closer. Michelle said something really interesting to me about being a mom… she was just saying that part of your life as a mother and as a parent is playing. You have to play, because if you don’t, the kid gets mean. It helped me to understand the movie, in a way, like maybe relationships are like that. You have to take them out in the backyard and run them around every day, and if you don’t, it’ll start to sour. I think what happens is these people take it for granted, and they go, ‘Okay, you love me, I love you, okay, great. Now we got that covered. We can go focus on our lives.’ And then this thing just starts to sour. Then because it came so naturally, it’s this thing that happened right at first sight and it was so easy, they want it to be effortless forever. I think that it takes work. My hope is that when people see the film… it starts a dialogue.
Interviewe: I don’t know, I don’t think they… do you think that they get back together?
Ryan Gosling: Yeah, I do. I really did. I just think that it’s two days of their life, you know? I mean, it’s a bad two days. And the film is focusing on those two days, but there’s so much, and it’s funny to me, they could have so much love in the past, and just… I just think there’s so much love there. They have a bad two days, and then everyone says it’s over, you know? I just think that’s the problem. We don’t look at how much they’ve built.”—
I’m sure if any of you guys ever visit the Rachel McAdams tag here you know what a mess it can be. The weheartit/spam is getting a little ridiculous and on some days there are full pages of it. So in collaboration with a couple other blogs, we thought we’d create a new tag for Rachel filled with happy, pretty things (similarly to how fuckyeahmcgosling did for Ryan Gosling last year).
So if you want to play with us (and we really hope you do!), just tag your posts as rmcadams when you make them and it’ll make it easier for us to find and reblog them all. PLEASE REMEMBER that only the first five tags you use will appear in tracked tags, so tag them wisely!
Thanks a million, guys, I can’t wait to see what you create!
