Easter has almost arrived! Here’s a good reason to forgo church, drunk brunch or whatever happens to be your usual Easter Sunday tradition — hunting for Ryan Gosling! Or, more specifically, hunting for plastic Easter eggs with Gosling’s visage inside them, thousands of which are hidden in cities across the country. It’s called Gosling Easter and of course I plan on participating. But the best part about going on this hunt in New York this year? The Gos is actually in town right now promoting “The Place Beyond The Pines,” and he lives in my neighborhood, so if I’m lucky, maybe I’ll find the real man. (Or end up in jail for stalking but whatever.) [Gosling Easter via Gothamist]
“When I look at the movie, I see this melting pot of all these masculine clichés: motorcycles, muscles, tattoos, guns, and yet when faced with this mirror, which is his child, he sees that none of those things make you a man.”
– Obviously, I am first in line at every Ryan Gosling movie, but when a film prompts my man to talk all smart-like about traditional gender roles and behavior to The New York Times, I get extra, extra excited to see it. I know it’s gonna be a little rough to watch Ryan macking on real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes in “The Place Beyond The Pines,” but I’ll deal. Another tidbit from the Times interview? Apparently, Ryan went a little buck wild experimenting with his character’s (fake) tattoos. “I was trying to create a portrait of somebody who had made a lifetime of bad decisions, and tattoos were the best way,” he said. “[But] I had no restraint. They were crawling up towards my face.” That includes the exclamation point underneath his eye, which director Derek Cianfrance insisted he keep on for filming. I dunno, face tattoos aren’t really my think, but Ryan makes it work. Check out a shot of his (fake) back tattoo after the jump! [NYTimes] Keep reading »
According to the April 2013 issue of Details, our celebrity sexual fantasies are dominated by Ryan Gosling and Mila Kunis. No surprise there. I get it. All these people are thoroughly fuckable. I’m just wondering how Bradley Cooper eeked his way onto there. Has nobody seen those pictures of him getting a perm? See a larger version here. [Boy Culture]
Because why not? The world is about to see a whole lot less of Ryan Gosling, so we better bask in the aura of his beauty while we can.
“I don’t think it’s really about me … I think it really is sort of like, I’m a pigeon and the Internet is Fabio and it just happened.”
– Okay, so for those of you who are reading this quote like, “WTF is Ryan Gosling talking about? A pigeon? Fabio?” allow me to explain. Back in 1999, Fabio — yes, Fabio, romance novel cover model — was riding a rollercoaster when a pigeon flew directly into his face, splatting its blood and guts across his visage. In the same vein, Ryan Gosling and internet meme phenomena are two things that just happened to cross paths — in his words, he was in “the wrong place at the wrong time” — and explode. Fantastic analogy, Ryan. [The Hollywood Reporter]
So by now you’ve probably heard the news that Ryan Gosling has decided to take a break from acting. He has one upcoming acting project — “The Place Beyond The Pines,” out soon — but after he’s done promoting that, he’ll be blowing Tinseltown and pursuing other interests for the near future. He’s already got a directing project lined up, but as he’s surely still going to have lots of free time, I have some thoughts on how he could spend it. Click on for five suggestions, in Gosling GIF form, of course…. Keep reading »
