According to Ryan Gosling, the Driver alum, he was stoked to have the honor of playing Neil Armstrong in the soon-to-be-released movie, First Man, regarding Mr. Armstrong, the very first man to walk on the moon in July of 1969.
The 37-year-old actor, during an interview with People Magazine, said that the moment he found out “what the moon was,” he learned a guy named Neil Armstrong was the first human being to take a step on the lunar surface.
While getting ready for his role, Ryan admitted that he was surprised to realize just how dangerous it was for the men and women at the time of the launch on that summer day.
“I had no idea how claustrophobic and frail those space capsules were,” the actor remarked, and compared the power we have today in our smartphones as gargantuan.
The latest movie, directed by the La La Land director, Damien Chazelle, revolves around Armstrong’s relationship with his wife, Janet, as well as the death of their young girl.
The actor said that the contrast between the intimacy of Armstrong’s personal life in comparison to the “infinite nature of space” is remarkable, and there isn’t a “greater duality.”
Regarding the fact he’s a Canadian, rather than American, he said, as long as people don’t find that out.
As it was previously reported, Fox and Friends took Ryan to task earlier today when Ryan said the achievement was of human beings, rather than Americans.
Other hosts of Fox And Friends insinuated that Hollywood has a hard time being patriotic, possibly for the fear of offending others. Additionally, Pete Hegseth called him an “idiot,” as well as a “global citizen.”
