Ryan Gosling filmed bank robbery in front of real customers

Ryan Gosling filmed a bank robbery scene for his new movie in front of real customers.

Find: Is Gosling secretly married?

The "Gangster Squad" star plays a motorcycle stuntman-turned-bank robber in "The Place Beyond The Pines," and in one scene his character is seen staging a heist.

Gosling has now revealed the movie crew filmed the shootout in a real bank and filled the place with real customers and staff members instead of using actors.

He says, "I'm there with a gun and I look down and people are just smiling. They were just enjoying the show and I think I spotted someone filming me on their camera phone as I robbed the place."

"Luckily, the participants knew that it was only a film shoot — and used the opportunity to stargaze at Gosling." It isn't like they didn't know it was for a movie scene. This article is just saying they used real customers of the bank and staff members. No one actually thought it was a robbery. I am pretty sure an entire film crew would tip them off.

Goes to show that generally people don't know how to act when called upon. They are more worried about getting a photo on their cell phone rather than being able to say they did a great job serving as an extra in the movie.

Of course they recognized him. He is worldwide famous now. Probably the sexiest new star making movies today.
