You guys, it’s my boyfriend’s birthday! Ryan Thomas Gosling turns 32 today. We are obvs having our own private celebration (in my mind), but I wanted to be able to include all of you in commemorating the momentous occasion of the birth of America’s Sexiest Superhero. Let’s drool over some — 32 to be exact — GIFs, shall we?
For those of you who are worried about how I’m taking the news that, once again, People magazine is naming someone besides Ryan Gosling as the “Sexiest Man Alive,” do not fret. I am alright. After all, I firmly believe that, for the second year in a row, Gosling actually rejected the title when it was offered to him. People would not be that stupid, you guys. Of course he was their pick last year and this year (and probably every year after). He just doesn’t want it. Come on now. Have some faith. This year I’m just happy that People‘s second choice is actually worthy of the title. (Bradley Cooper was a bust, let’s face it.) The magazine will reportedly be bestowing that honor upon Channing Tatum, my backup dream celebrity boyfriend. He is not above accepting such honors. While I love that the Gos is a little bit of a snot, the thing I really like about Channing is that he’s a bit lowbrow, you know? Ryan’s trash is Channing’s treasure and what not. Yin and yang. Anyway, now you know how I feel about this, so you can go back to worrying about more important things, like the fate of our country and stuff. [Gossip Cop]
Hey girl, I heard you liked the idea of zooming in on a carefully curated selection of my best and worst outfits, so have at it. Yep, here’s a look book filled with Gosling’s universally appealing
smile, eyes, abs dressed-down sense of style, featuring plenty of scarves, Darfur T-shirts, a grungy phase, the smoking jackets, and, well, the less said about 2007′s beard the better. A warning to folks still not quite over the fact that Ryan and Rachel McAdams’s real-life romance didn’t play out quite like “The Notebook,” the below gallery will make you plenty wistful. For everyone else, know that we thought of just writing the word hot, and leaving it at that. Click on to see the Ryan Gosling look book…
Sooo much to love about this recently unearthed interview with a wee Ryan Gosling on Canadian TV just after he was signed to the “Mickey Mouse Club.” For starters, he has a Canadian accent! I recently heard a rumor that Ryan still has a Canadian accent, but that he hides it in interviews and in movies. What’s that aboot? He sounds so cute when he says, “They call me moooooose boy!” Anyway, is it just me or is the Gos totally flirting with the camera even back then? And I love the little clips of his various dance moves! And singing “Achy Breaky Heart”! Ack! Dying! Such an adorable cute little nerd. We would have so dated in junior high. [Huffington Post]
After seeing Jay-Z perform with wife Beyonce this weekend, I had two thoughts: 1) They can never break up, and 2) If the music industry has Jay and Beyonce as their modern power couple, who does Young Hollywood have? Who is the 2012 version of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart? I mean, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, not to mention Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, have split — which famous pair is poised to take the super couple reigns and hold on for dear life? The obvious choice would be Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but I think we can all agree they are swimming in rough waters right now and can’t really be expected to do the job.
With that in mind, I decided to anoint the new guard of up-and-coming Hollywood super couples, celebs who are great alone but even stronger together. Keep reading »
