"I'm embarrassed," the 30-year-old actor told MTV News about the incident, which was caught on video and quickly went viral. "I think that guy really was stealing that other guy's painting, so I should have just kept my nose out of it."

PIC: Whoa. Ryan goes bleached blonde!

Gosling deemed the theft "sad," and told MTV News the thief was in fact "a fan, and so he wanted a painting so bad he had to steal it because he couldn't afford it."

PIC: Ryan goofs off!

"So he finally steals the painting, and then he's getting his ass kicked by his hero, and then the guy from The Notebook shows up and makes it weirder," he said. "It's just, the whole thing, nobody wins, nobody won... I had just come from the gymnasium, and I was all stretched out and feeling warmed up. So, I'm embarrassed."
