“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 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]
Ryan Gosling is back in New York! No wonder it’s so hot out. If anyone needs me, I’ll just be doing laps around the East Village.
Two bones to pick this morning! 1) Excuse me, Fame/Flynet, but George is not Eva Mendes’ dog, as you have inaccurately labeled him. He is Ryan Gosling’s dog. Eva Mendes is a temporary dog walker. 2) And excuse me, Celebitchy, but Eva Mendes, dog walker, is not “hiding a baby bump.” Watch. Your. Mouth. Please.
“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears. People walking past me patted me on the back, trying to console me. ‘The Notebook’ was beautiful, and I was crying because its hero and heroine had died together. But I was also crying because … my marriage had died. And there was nothing I could do to bring it back.”
– R. Kelly, on how Ryan Gosling ruined his marriage, as explained in his new memoir Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me. Real talk: I can’t wait to read this book. [via NYMag.com]
Be still my beating heart! Yesterday, we got familiar with Ryan Gosling as a tween, singing and dancing to C+C Music Factory at a Mormon talent competition. Today, our journey through Ryan’s adolescence continues with his very first interview on “The Insider” in 1998, preparing for his role on “Young Hercules.” In the video, a significantly blonder Gosling — then around 18 years old — works out at the gym, punching a dummy, and talks about his love of Bruce Lee movies. Dying inside.
Hi, is it Christmas? I’m just wondering because no less than seven people have sent me a link to this video this morning, featuring a young Ryan Gosling performing at a Mormon talent competition. He sings “When A Man Loves A Woman” and gets funky to C+C Music Factory. Dude has been epic since before puberty. Love him! [Hyper Vocal] Keep reading »
