“Drive” star Ryan Gosling joined the work force younger than most (starring on Disney’s “The Mickey Mouse Club” before hitting his teen years), but does that mean the talented hunk should ditch his blossoming career prematurely as well?

In an interview with the UK’s The Times, Ryan revealed he expects his golden years to arrive sooner rather than later.

“I’ve been doing this since I was 12… I don’t want to act much longer,” he told the paper, via IFC. “I can’t do one thing my whole life.

“I know there are only so many characters I’ll be able to play,” the Canadian star continued. “It will be over whenever the inspiration dries up.”

Additionally, the 30-year-old actor, who will soon be seen alongside George Clooney and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the much-buzzed-about political drama “The Ides of March,” revealed he has fatherhood on the brain.

“I’d like to be making babies but I’m not, so I’m making movies,” he told the paper, via E!. “When someone comes along, I don’t think I’ll be able to do both and I’m fine with that.

“I’ll make movies until I make babies,” he added.

“The Ides of March” is slated for theatrical release on October 7.
