Ryan Gosling Gets Bad Career Advice! Told ‘Don’t Talk!’

Ryan Gosling has been making the the Late Night rounds lately promoting Drive & The Ides of March, so when he bumped into a a friend/agent’s employee she told him he was trying too hard in his interviews. That’s just crazy…he comes off likable, charming and funny…what TV is she watching!

“I ran into my field Lisa Shields last night. She works for my agent now and one of her jobs is to record all my late night appearances,” Gosling told hos Jay Leno. “She told me this last night, she I’m trying too hard on talk shows. She said you’re trying too hard to be cool… I said I’m going on Jay Leno tomorrow, what should I do? She said, ‘I don’t know, just don’t talk. Sit there and don’t talk.’ And I was like, ‘It’s a talk show, how do you not…’ And then she said, ‘Do something weird like sit behind his desk and get him to sit in a chair.'”

Maybe it was the ‘cat’ story on Conan!
