Ryan Gosling: Carey 'makes a hell of a carrot cake'

Monday June 20, 2011

Ryan Gosling reckons Oscar-nominated actress Carey Mulligan should also be famous for her cake-making skills.

"She makes a hell of a carrot cake, she really does!" the actor insisted as their new film Drive premiered at the LA Film Festival.

Carey plays Ryan's love interest in the critically praised movie from Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn.

The film sees Ryan demonstrate some impressive motoring skills, playing a stunt driver by day and getaway driver for armed heists by night.

Carey, who was unable to make the red carpet, was clearly missed by the rest of the cast with Ryan admitting everyone had become incredibly close during the shoot.

"We all basically lived at [the director's] house, he sort of insisted on it," Ryan explained.

"The editor was living in the living room, Carey was baking carrot cakes, I was driving everybody around, the writer was up in the attic.

"We just watched movies and drove around, the films a real reflection of what the experience was of making it."
