RYAN Gosling is "embarrassed" he broke up a street fight.

The 'Notebook' actor - who was deemed a hero after the good deed in New York last month - wishes he had kept his "nose out" as his involvement in the incident, which later went viral on the internet, just made the whole situation "weirder".

He told MTV News: "I'm embarrassed. I think that guy really was stealing that other guy's painting, so I should have just kept my nose out of it.

"So he finally steals the painting, and then he's getting his ass kicked by his hero, and then the guy from 'The Notebook' shows up and makes it weirder.

"It's just, the whole thing, nobody wins, nobody won... I had just come from the gymnasium, and I was all stretched out and feeling warmed up. So, I'm embarrassed."

However, it is unlikely Ryan could have ticked breaking up a fight off his to-do list following the incident, as he recently admitted he stopped setting himself goals when he reached the age of 30.

He said: "Do I set goals for myself? Not really. I think now that I'm 30 I'm more comfortable. Maybe it's because I'm playing characters that are older, so it is easier to find good material. But I also have more control, I think."
