Ryan Gosling will no longer take on psychologically distorted roles for the benefit of an old partner Eva Mendes and their two daughters.

“I don’t really play roles that put me in some kind of dark situation,” Gosling, 43, told the BBC. Wall Street Journal in a new interview published on Thursday, May 2. “This moment is where I feel like reading the room at home and thinking about what will be best for all of us. The decisions I make, I make together with Eva and we make them with our family in mind first.”

The actor further told the outlet that he and Emma Stonethe musical of 2016, La La Landwas the ‘first’ film that initiated his career change.

“It was like, ‘Oh, this will be fun for them too, because even though they don’t come on set, we practice piano every day or we dance or sing,’” he explained. “Their interest in Barbie and their disinterest in Ken was an inspiration. I thought they were already making little videos about their Barbies on the iPad when it happened, so the fact that I went to work to make one too made us feel like we were on the same page.”
