The Crazy, Stupid, Love actor told Metro that he preferred funny movies to straight dramas.
Gosling said: "Comedies have always been my favourite movies and I always wanted to make them but then I got into drama and never had the chance.
"But I also know that so much of comedy is about who you work with and your chemistry with the other actors."
Asked if he enjoyed improvising some of his dialogue in Crazy, Stupid, Love, he replied: "I have to - I don't have a choice. These directors, they get bored and they're like, 'Boring! Surprise me'.
"So I had a friend come to the set and we would just rip with each other between sets, so if they were to call me to take the scene in another direction I would be prepared."
Gosling recently said that he wants to reunite with his Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn and co-star Albert Brooks on a romantic comedy.
