What has Ryan Gosling getting all worked up?

The star of the sexy new film Blue Valentine sat down with E! News' Ben Lyons, and when the conversation turned to the controversy over the film's NC-17 rating, the Oscar-nominated actor just couldn't keep his cool...

"You are going to get me all angry now," he said. "Don't get me going!"

While he said his Valentine costar Michelle Williams has been much more "Zen" about the situation, Ryan didn't hold back with his opinion about the Motion Picture Association of America or MPAA, which determines a film's rating.

"The MPAA really needs to...There is something very distorted about this reality that they've created, which is that it is OK to torture women on screen...Any kind of violence towards women in a sexual scenario is fine. But give a woman pleasure, no way. Not a chance. That's pornography."

Check out the video to hear what else Ryan had to say about the rating, how he thinks it'll affect the movie and why he's only willing to work with crazy people at this point in his career.
