In this exclusive clip, Gosling, Cooper, and director Derek Cianfrance take us through an intense scene that required the leading men to double as stuntmen.
Gosling plays a new father in the film, who, in his desperation to provide for his child, goes on a spree of bank robberies. In this scene, the actor had to perform a pretty precarious stunt on the motorcycle he'd just learned to ride. According to Cianfrance, it could've cost him his life. Can you imagine a world without Ryan Gosling? We can't.
Cooper, who plays a rookie cop in the film, also had to brush up on his stunt driving for the scene, in which his character pursues Gosling after he flees a robbery. Because the scene is so tightly-shot, Cooper had to do all the driving himself.
Watch and learn.
