“Ryan’s a great cook, he’s really good at improvising. He said something sweet when we were in that rehearsal period. He did a lot of the cooking and a lot of the dishes, and I think finally I said to him, ‘Ryan, this isn’t how it goes. This doesn’t feel real to me.’ And he… READ MORE »

Ryan Gosling — an actor who The Frisky has totally neutral opinions on — says that “Blue Valentine” is a film that couples should watch together, as it’s “a cautionary tale about what can happen to love if you ignore it and you take it for granted.” We happen to think that while the love… READ MORE »

Props to New York’s Vulture blog for pointing out that two distinctly different Ryan Gosling films, “The Notebook” and “Blue Valentine,” have one distinct similarity — they each feature a scene in which Gosling’s character kinda, sorta threatens to kill himself if the object of his affection doesn’t give him what he wants.

This weekend I saw “Blue Valentine” for the second time — and there probably will be a third viewing, so just deal! — and I was struck, again, by a moment in the movie when Ryan Gosling’s character, Dean, picks out a song for he and Cindy, played by Michelle Williams. “I got us… READ MORE »

“People would come up to me and tell me that they thought [“The Notebook”] was romantic, but one guy told me that he was engaged and [his fiancée] broke up with him after that movie because she said to him, ‘You wouldn’t build a house for me [like the lead character does], would you?’ He… READ MORE »

“I thought, ‘I’ve never seen that before in a movie and I’m proud to be the first [to have an onscreen oral sex scene].

“We shot for hours. And the sun was going down—we were actually stealing that shot, because we didn’t have a permit to shoot on the Brooklyn Bridge, and if we didn’t get it that night, we weren’t going to get it. And so the sun was going down, and she wasn’t telling me. So the… READ MORE »

Good lord, I love Michelle Williams and this interview with her on “Nightline” is pretty amazing.

We’ve been gearing up for the Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams movie, “Blue Valentine,” for ages now. And so we weren’t happy when the movie was given an NC-17 rating due to an implied oral sex scene. What this means, in the grand scheme of things, is that the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA)… READ MORE »

“[Michelle] ended up winning. She gained about 15, 16 pounds. [Ryan] gained 14. … Michelle was eating a pint of ice cream for breakfast and dinner and avocado sandwiches all day. She wanted to do it. She talked about her character having a certain self-hatred.”

We may have discovered why “Blue Valentine” got its mysterious NC-17 rating. Could it be because of the very scary factor of “male nudity”? Jezebel’s Brian Patrick Thornton noticed that “Jackass 3D” was rated R because of “male nudity,” among a host of other film sins. After doing some research, he found the distinction of… READ MORE »
