LOS ANGELES: Actor Ryan Gosling had fun working on the musical "La La Land" with actress Emma Stone, but said learning his lines, songs, dance routines, jazz piano and the keytar was a lot to take in.

"Trying to fit the keytar into my schedule of things I had to learn was pretty funny. But we were all being pushed to our limits to see what we were capable of. We worked for three months on, for instance, one number that happens at sunset where it starts as a scene, then it becomes a song, and then it's a dance and then it's a scene again and it all happens in one take," Gosling told Empire magazine.

The scene was a homage to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers's "Isn't this a lovely day (to be caught in the rain)" routine from "Top Hat", and Gosling loved getting the chance to put a new spin on the iconic footage, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"That idea, just the clever nuance of the way Fred and Ginger's characters were trying to make the best of a bad situation, we tried to subvert that lyrically in our scene. We tried to make the worst out of a good situation," he said.
