Fact: Ryan Gosling may not be acting right now, but Ryan Gosling will forever be sexy. 

The 32-year-old actor stepped out in New York City yesterday on the heels of his recent announcement to "take a break" from acting. 

Standing curbside in Manhattan, Gosling was photographed looking handsome as ever in dark-rimmed glasses, a black hoodie and roughed-up combat boots. The on-hiatus actor was also carrying the book El Topo, from the film by Alejandro Jorodowsky.

Gosling, who recently wrapped up an untitled Terrence Malick film, revealed that his ongoing movie gigs are beginning to take a toll. 

"I've been doing it too much," the actor said in an interview. ""I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."

While the we await the hunk to return to the big screen, we'll just swoon over these pics for now.
