Hey girl, take a quick second and follow Paul Ryan Gosling, the Twitter account for the better, smoother, sexier Paul Ryan. Above, a selection of some of our favorite tweets. Cutting Medicare has never sounded so erotic. [Paul Ryan Gosling]

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 said, ‘I know, Michelle, but you have a home and a kid. You’re cooking when you go home so I feel bad making you do it here too.’”
– Michelle Williams, who’s promoting the fantastic movie “Take This Waltz,” is still being asked questions about Ryan Gosling and their 2010 film “Blue Valentine.” This is what she told the Guardian UK about the time she and Ryan spent living together in preparation for their roles as husband and wife. Swoon. [Guardian UK via Videogum]
