"I’d like you to meet my mother"

Note the remarkable similarity of the flower motif on the dress of Julian’s mother and the flower motif on the wallpaper behind Julian and Mai.

Ryan Gosling: Before shooting, Nicolas asked me how I wanted to play the scene. “Do you want to laugh? Or do you prefer to cry?” I suggested that, to see from where he was born, Julian could open his mother’s stomach and remove her uterus. Without thinking, Nicolas answered, “Ok, cool!” A few minutes later, he returned from the butcher and brought some bowels of a pig to be the uterus. It so happened that my family was visiting me on the set that day. It probably wasn’t the best time for that but things worked out that way. So here I am with (the character’s entrails) in my hands and my mother is sitting behind the camera monitor and watching everything. But after I did the scene, I saw my mother with a big smile on her face, giving me a “thumbs up”. I guess she was proud of her son! (Laughs)
