After the whole ordeal, Ryan Gosling’s parents came up with a new and unique rule for their child. Stating that he was only allowed to watch Bible movies and National Geographic, it seems quite impossible that the actor was able to star in The Gray Man later on in his career.

“I don’t think it’s cool but my parents like ‘this guy can’t watch movies, you know? They have too much of an effect on him’. So I could only watch Bible movies and National Geographic movies”

In the end, the actor did find his way into Hollywood eventually and even starred in action and romance movies. The actor was last seen in the billion-dollar grosser movie Barbie. The 2023 movie is currently screening in select theaters across the country.
