We already filled you in on how baffled Blue Valentine producer Jamie Patricof was when the MPAA slammed an NC-17 stamp on his dark and brilliant flick, but at the movie's premiere in Hollywood, leading man Ryan Gosling was talking about the rating:
"They gave it not because of something they saw, but because of the way something in the film made them feel. That speaks to the power of this film. There's no real scene that they can hang this X rating on," he said. "It's just an emotional reaction."
So what's the MPAA's deal, Ry?
