Awards George Clooney Jokes about What Ryan Gosling Is Up to in Thailand "He's gotta earn a living, he's a struggling actor," Clooney says of his absent fellow best-actor nominee By Tim Nudd Published on January 16, 2012 09:30AM EST Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty ; AKM So, where was Ryan Gosling on Sunday night? Oh, just trying to make ends meet. That’s according to The Descendents star George Clooney, who gave some hints backstage about the whereabouts of the most high-profile no-show at Sunday’s Golden Globes. He “is in Thailand or something,” the best-actor winner, 50, said of his category rival, 31. “And you know what you do in Thailand.” “He’s working, I think, in Thailand,” Clooney added. “He wrote me a nice letter, an email, this morning. You know, he’s gotta work, he’s gotta earn a living, he’s a struggling actor.” Gosling’s rep earlier revealed only that the actor was “working out of the country.” He is said to be shooting Only God Forgives, a mixed martial arts movie set in Bangkok.
