London: Ryan Gosling jumped at the opportunity to star in "Crazy, Stupid, Love" because comedies are his favourite films.

The Canadian actor, who is best known for serious romantic roles in "The Notebook" and "Blue Valentine", signed this comedy film because he had never had the opportunity to star in a humorous project before, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Comedies have always been my favourite movies and I always wanted to make them but then I got into drama and never had the chance. But I also know that so much of comedy is about who you work with and your chemistry with the other actors," he said.
