He’s turned into one of the biggest heartthrobs of the entertainment industry, to date. Sex appeal, hilarity and stellar performances are just a little taste of what has us falling in love hard and fast with Ryan Gosling.
This multi-talented Canadian native has starred in major motion pictures like “The Notebook,” “Drive,” “The Place Beyond the Pines,” “Ides of March” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” If you’re not already head-over-heels, here are ten reasons to love Ryan Gosling.
1. He’s a stone cold fox.
He has not yet been given the famous title of People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” but we believe it goes without saying that Ry Guy takes the title every year. With those baby blues, charming smile and the ability to work any hairstyle he pleases, we would let Gosling take advantage of us anytime, any place.
2. He’s an award-winning actor.
We gotta give credit where credit is due. Aside from his steamy appearance, Gosling lights up the screen in every motion picture he stars in. Ryan has proven to critics and movie-goers alike that he can own both dramatic and comedic performances, winning several awards for his roles in “Half Nelson,” “Drive” and “The Notebook,” to name a few.
3. He’s hilarious.
Ever seen Gosling do an interview with everyone’s favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres? They’re all worth watching, but check out this one, first and let the YouTube spree commence.
4. He adores his dog, George.
Gos brings his dog, George, everywhere. He loves his pup like he’s the very fruit of his loins.
5. No one rocks a suit like he does.
This man looks sexiest, well, with nothing on. One thing’s for sure, though: Gosling can rock a suit like no other. In his signature slim-fitted sexy suit, Gosling always looks like a boss.
6. He loves his mama.
Judging by the fact that his mom, Donna, has frequently accompanied him to a host of awards shows, it’s clear that Ryan is a family man. There’s nothing better than a man who shows love for his mama.
7. He doesn’t just act; he sings, too.
As if Gosling couldn’t get any sexier, he hits us with a double whammy: He’s a musician. Gosling and Zach Shields are the rock duo that is Dead Man’s Bones. Their first album was released in October 2009, and it’s pretty damn good.
8. He’s aware of the “Hey Girl” meme phenomenon and is modestly flattered.
“Hey Girl” memes make it pretty clear that the rest of the world is on the “Gosling is God” bandwagon, right there with us. These memes are hysterical and Ryan thinks so, too.
9. He once saved a woman from being hit by a cab.
Just when we thought this dream boat couldn’t get any dreamier, he pulls some real superhero sh*t. In April 2012, Gosling literally grabbed Laurie Penny, a young writer from London, as she was stepping out into the streets of Manhattan about to be run over by a taxi. Gosling saved this woman’s life, and we’ve all died and gone to heaven.
10. Did we mention how f*cking sexy he is?
There is no doubt about it — Ryan Gosling is every girl’s dream. While we keep dreaming, Eva Mendes is living the reality. The couple has been dating since September 2012, and their love seems to be going pretty strong, pretty steady.
Sorry, ladies. We’ll have to settle for the movies, memes and music of our man crush since day one, Ry Gos.
