Nobody walks in L.A? Nobody works in L.A.

Kudos to actor Ryan Gosling for confirming what we suspected all along: Well-paid actors in this city have way too much time on their hands (and thus, the Lindsay Lohan saga). He tells GQ:

“The problem with Hollywood is that nobody works. They have meals. They go to Pilates. But it's not enough. So they do drugs. If everybody had a pile of rocks in their backyard and spent every day moving them from one side of the yard to the other, it would be a much happier place.”

What Gosling is really trying to say is that everyone should try being a Mexican for just one day (thanks for pointing this out, Ryan).

Not everyone, of course, is happy with his comment.

“Only a pretty-boy actor would have the balls to say that nobody works in Hollywood. Only actors don't work. The rest of us work our asses off so they can look good and sell tickets. Fuck you Gosling, and fuck anyone posting this quote like it's some kind of deep or meaningful statement about the entertainment industry.”

We're on Gosling's side. He didn't mean to diss the grips, caterers and valets. He meant to diss the Lohans and all the other celebutards who go on Leno and claim they do their own stunts.

They do their own publicity stunts.
