By: Wendy Atterberry / December 8, 2010

I recently moved out of the country, and am in the process of making new friends. Every so often a new male stranger will strike up conversation with me.

This hot shot of Ryan Gosling in his underpants is from his new flick “All Good Things.” Mmm-hmm, they got that right! Clearly, seeing The Gos wet and nearly naked on the big screen is worth the price of admission. Dang, he’s got it going on! The movie also stars Kirsten Dunst, but I’m glad… More »
