Ryan Gosling 'embarrassed' about breaking up street fight

Remember that fantastic viral video that showed Ryan Gosling breaking up a New York City street fight? We might have loved it, but it turns out that Gosling feels that it was not his brightest moment.

"I'm embarrassed. I should have just kept my nose out of it," Gosling told MTV. The way the actor recalls the fisticuffs, he walked into a situation involving a painting thief, who was stealing the work of art he'd been admiring for a long time. "Which means the guy was a fan, and so he wanted the painting so bad he had to steal it because he couldn't afford it.

"So he finally steals the painting and he's getting his ass kicked by his hero, and then the guy from 'The Notebook' shows up and makes it weirder. The whole thing, nobody wins. Nobody won."
