You remember him from his string of romantic films like The Notebook, Blue Valentine and the well-loved rom-com Crazy, Stupid, Love, alongside the hilarious Emma Watson. As one of the most successful actors and most desirable man on earth, we’re sharing a couple more reasons why we’re currently head-over-heels with this sexy Canuck, Ryan Gosling!
1. He’s a Family Man
At the 2007 Oscars, the man brought the two important ladies in his life – his mom and his sister. It’s obvious he’s a real sweetheart!
2. He’s a Musician
Ryan is not only a fantastic actor, but is also a musical-talent. He plays jazz guitar and piano, and he also sings in an indie rock band called Dead Man’s Bones. The band released their first music video in 2008 for their song, “In The Room Where You Sleep.”
3. He’s an Internet Meme
In 2008, Ryan became an internet meme after his photos were captioned with “Hey Girl” that took Tumblr by storm. The meme features a picture of Ryan with captions that begin with “Hey girl..” and it usually goes on with some of the sweetest words you’d love to hear from a man, especially, and most importantly Ryan Gosling.
4. He’s a Handyman
Apart from being a fantastic actor, a musician, Ryan also has some skillful hands as a carpenter. In his role in The Notebook, Ryan plays an apprentice for a cabinetmaker and built a few pieces of furniture with his own two hands, which were part of the set in the film. He even built the same table where he makes out with on-screen lover, Rachel McAdams.
5. He Lived with Justin Timberlake
Did you know that Ryan used to live under the same roof for two years with Justin Timberlake? Ryan also used to on “The All New Mickey Mouse Club” with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Sexy Back himself!
6. He Shares a Special Connection with Rachel McAdams
Their on-screen relationship in The Notebook wasn’t only great acting, but the reason why it was so convincing because they shared off-screen romance too. Ryan once said of his relationship with Rachel, “I mean, God bless The Notebook, it introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But, people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.” (Source)
7. His drool-worthy body
He has one of the best abs in Hollywood, true story. Whenever he takes his shirt off, girls definitely go wild. Who can resist those packs and big guns, we know we can’t! His gorgeous but still looks like a man. Don’t you wish you can just place him in your pocket and bring him wherever you want?
8. His crystal blue eyes
The moment when we laid our eyes on it, we can’t look away – as if we’re hypnotized. We’re pretty sure those baby blue eyes makes you melt like a butter. But then again, if he wasn’t a successful actor right now we have a feeling he might be the world’s greatest hypnotizer.
