Actor Ryan Gosling and his wife, actress Eva Mendes, are known for being private about their personal and family lives. However, in a recent interview with GQ, Gosling opened up about how the pandemic had impacted his children, Esmeralda and Amada.
"Our kids are young, so it was a tough time for them to be separated from other kids and not being able to see family and whatnot," he said of the recent lockdown that the United States was in.
He continued to share that the couple had to find new ways to keep their children occupied with the whole family being stuck indoors. He joked: "We did our best to entertain them. I think Eva and I did more acting in quarantine than we have in our whole careers."
However, it was not an issue for the 40-year-old as he was grateful to be able to spend more time with his children. "I think about time more than I used to. I have two kids and they're growing up fast. So I keep my eyes on the clock more than I used to," he admitted.
In conjunction with his recent partnership with a luxury watch brand, Gosling spoke about the significance of time and said that it reminded him of the time he has left with his children before they become adults.
Recalling his first Father's Day, the La La Land star shared that he was gifted a watch by his wife. "The brand doesn't matter. The symbol was what mattered. It meant, you're on the clock now."
Gosling next project is the action thriller The Gray Man, which sees him act opposite Chris Evans and Blade Runner 2049 co-star Ana de Armas.
