Michelle William Ryan Gosling W Magazine

Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling share the cover of the October 2010 issue of W Magazine. The actors star together in Blue Valentine, which comes out in December. The film took a very long time to film. Ryan Gosselin told W, "It took forever; for four years Blue Valentine would be ready to go, and then the film would fall apart again due to financing or timing."

Ryan Gosselin also says there was one part during filming when he fell asleep. He says, "Once, I fell asleep in the middle of a take, and we filmed through it. After I woke up, Michelle said, 'We did the scene, and we filmed you sleeping on the couch.'"

There is also an intense love scene in the film. Michelle Williams says shooting the love scenes was "toxic."

"We never rehearsed anything, and those were really dark days. We shot the beginning of our relationship first, and it was fun and alive. Then we did the sex scenes and it was…toxic. Ryan and I had stopped relating to each other as Ryan and Michelle. Those scenes took forever. I had a long drive from set to home each night, and I would roll down all the windows and turn up the music as loud as I could and hang my head out the window like a dog and scream. It was my escape."
