“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 »
I always thought my Ryan Gosling love knew no bounds, but I was wrong. I don’t make tea towels with the Gos’s face on them. (I’m too busy photoshopping ear cuffs on Daniel Day-Lewis.) While promoting his film “Gangster Squad,” a reporter for Rotten Tomatoes — my new hero, by the way — presented Ryan with a tea towel with his face on it, made by a woman in New Zealand. Ryan is innnnncredibly uncomfortable and bust out into a total giggle fit, but the interviewer kept the jokes coming. The whole clip is hilarious. “The Mayans were right: It is the end of the world. They were right. This is what they meant,” Ryan finally said, after he composed himself. “This is why they stopped the calendar. They were like, ‘You know what? They’re going to start doing dishtowels about that knucklehead, and it’s not worth it. It’s not worth recording anything after that.’” [Yahoo]

Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes: Hey girl! Honoree Sexiest Man Alive Ryan Gosling is about to make his directorial debut … with girlfriend Eva Mendes by his side. In the film, titled “How to Catch a Monster,” Mendes plays Cat, the head of the Big Bad Wolf Club.
Off-screen, Mendes is winning Mama Gosling’s approval. “I’m wearing Eva Mendes,” Donna Gosling said at the “Gangster Squad” premiere. “She let me raid her closet.” Read more…
I’ve been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans three times, but I really missed out by not going this year — because there was a Ryan Gosling-themed float in the parade from all-female krewe Nyx! I would have definitely flashed my tits at this float, and not even for the beads. Check out a closer look at the float, after the jump! [Swoonworthy] Keep reading »
What’s that saying about not shitting where you eat? Well, Ryan Gosling has decided to take his second big ol’ dump with girlfriend Eva Mendes, who he’s cast in his directorial debut, “How To Catch A Monster.” The two met on the set of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” of course, and I guess things are going so swimmingly, gag, that Ryan wants to work with his lady friend again. Mendes will reportedly be playing a woman named Cat, who works at something called the Big Bad Wolf Club, which may or may not be a fetish club in the film. The movie itself sounds … weird. I can’t tell if it’s weird good or weird bad, but here’s what Indie Wire says about “How To Catch A Monster”‘s plot: “[T]he cryptic logline reveals the story to be centering on Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.” Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky have already signed on for the film. Look, I’m not trying to jinx things, but I just hope Ryan has a backup in mind for the role of Cat, just incase things go south with Eva. I mean, movies take awhile to make. What if she starts to get on his nerves or he meets someone else? Once cameras start to roll, it’s hard to turn back. Just looking out for Ryan’s best interests is all. [IndieWire]
Technically speaking, I was a late bloomer. I didn’t go out on a date until I was in college and I didn’t have my first real boyfriend until I was 23. But from the time I was, oh, eight years old, my fictional romantic life flourished. In my mind, I cultivated rich, deep and emotionally complex relationships with a small handful of celebrities I thought to be my soul mates. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to meet the men I’ve never actually met who have been my Valentines over the years.
