Hey Girl! Your favorite meme got mixed up with Paul Ryan and @PaulRyanGosling was born

Hey girl!

The Ryan Gosling meme that just won’t die got a neo-conservative twist over the weekend with the announcement that Mitt Romney had chosen Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) as his running mate. And as is the case with any big news these days (Angelina’s leg, NBC’s time-delayed coverage) it instantly had a parody twitter account. Having the same last name as Gosling’s first name has repercussions, girl.

Taking the same formula that launched many a Gosling Tumblrs, @PaulRyanGosling  plugged in some of Ryan’s more controversial policies and added an upbeat, flirty twist. It’s making politics fun! In a laughing to keep from crying sort of way.

Some of our favorites are below: READ FULL STORY

Ryan Gosling's gonna make you sweat -- VIDEO

No, not in bed, not this time. I’m sorry. Also, that’s gross. Look at him; he’s like 10.

Treat yo self to this 1991 footage of the Drive star —  back when he was an actual gosling — singing “When a Man Loves a Woman” (the Michael Bolton reprise!) and completely upstaging his older sister in a dance routine to C&C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” in a Mormon talent show.

My overwhelming thought: “Macaulay Culkin WISHES.”  READ FULL STORY

Celebrity Avengers, assemble! Dustin Hoffman and Mila Kunis join the ranks of Hollywood's real-life heroes

Is there something in the water in Hollywood… and also New Jersey? Because in the past five weeks, saving a civilian’s life has become the new Kabbalah — everyone who’s famous is doing it. In April, Ryan Gosling grabbed a woman who was this close to being flattened by a taxi. Newark mayor Cory Booker one-upped the Blue Valentine star by pulling a woman out of a burning building later that month. And Patrick Dempsey proved his own life-saving bona fides two weeks ago by prying a 17-year-old boy out of a wrecked car. (When the kid came to, he asked Dempsey if he was famous. McDreamy’s response? “Yeah, I’m a doctor.”)

But these three dreamy dudes aren’t the only boldfaced names getting into the superhero game. EW has confirmed that less than two weeks ago, 74-year-old Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman tended to a jogger who suffered a heart attack while running in London’s Hyde Park. As The Sun originally reported, the onetime Marathon Man quickly dashed over when he saw lawyer Sam Dempster collapse. Hoffman called paramedics and tended Dempster until they arrived, not leaving the stricken man until he was taken to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Afterwards, Hoffman soared into the sky — where he will stay, waiting and watching, until another exerciser is in need.

And then there’s Mila Kunis, who came running when a 50-year-old member of her household staff suffered a seizure Saturday. TMZ writes that Kunis quickly had a friend dial 911, then turned the man’s head to one side so he wouldn’t choke. She also allegedly volunteered to ride with the victim to the hospital. (Kunis’s rep didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.) Beauty, brains, and bravery — it’s all part of the celebrity hero package.


Cory Booker: Newark's mayor earns real-life superhero status, memes aplenty

This week may have started out tough for Newark mayor Cory Booker, who faced complaints about the cost of police overtime for Whitney Houston’s funeral, but it ended with a “BANG! THWAP! POW!” That’s right, after rescuing a neighbor from a burning building, Booker has joined the likes of Ryan Gosling, Chuck Norris, Sean Penn, Mark Wahlberg (at least in his own head), and Seattle’s Phoenix Jones in garnering real-life superhero status — and his own meme!

Kiss and tell! Ellen asks Emma Stone to choose between Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield -- VIDEO

In case you forgot that she has puckered up to both Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield in the last year, Emma Stone visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and was asked who was the better kisser. Said Stone, “Apples and oranges, you know?” No, we don’t, Emma. Please elaborate. It was a sexy Sophie’s Choice, really: Her real-life boyfriend, who plays a superhero or the real-life superhero who played her boyfriend. See how she answered below. READ FULL STORY

Extra! Extra! Ryan Gosling saves woman's life!

With great handsomeness comes great responsibility. In his ongoing quest to clean up the streets of New York, one fist fight and vehicular manslaughter at a time, Ryan Gosling has now saved a woman’s life. British journalist Laurie Penny tweeted about a harrowing near-death, nearer-to-dreamboat incident yesterday. She was wearing a pink wig and Gosling was wearing… It’s hard to know where to start. Penny wrote,

“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened. I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi. He did not say ‘hey, girl.’ He said ‘hey, watch out!’ Identity of no-idea-if-actually-a-manarchist-but-definitely-a-decent-sort Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said ‘you lucky bitch.'”

One downside: According to Penny, Gosling was wearing “double denim.” Then again, every Clark Kent needs his own version of horn rims to keep his superhero identity under wraps. READ FULL STORY

New Ryan Gosling photo from his next film: He ain't pretty no more

Let’s play a little game. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you read the name Ryan Gosling? Is it “handsome”? Or “rugged”? Or perhaps “not unattractive”? Or maybe you just get the urge to shake your fist in Bradley Cooper’s direction? It’s understandable. Last year, RyGo starred in three movies in which he was handsome for three specific moviegoing constituencies: the rom-com Crazy Stupid Love, the award-bait political thriller The Ides of March, and the Michael Mann-on-Danish-steroids cult hit Drive.

Gosling is filming his next movie with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, and based on a photo from the film’s set, Gosling has decided that he no longer wants to be beautiful. He looks like a Walking Dead zombie, albeit with a fantastic blue vest-tie-pants combo. Scroll down for a larger version of the photo: READ FULL STORY

Toot toot! Diane Keaton boards the Ryan Gosling love train

Diane-KeatonImage Credit: Noel Vasquez/Getty ImagesThe list of men Diane Keaton has kissed on screen reads like an Academy Awards publicist’s clipboard — on a good year. Still, the actress has her eye on one young whippersnapper who has thus far eluded her lips: Ryan Gosling.

In an interview on Canada’s The Marilyn Denis Show, Keaton joked, “Here’s the deal with me: I’ve kissed a lot of men on film,” then rattled off a crazy-impressive slew of names. “I really feel I deserve an award.” And that award, apparently, is the pleasure of Gosling’s company. What, Diane, an Oscar isn’t enough? Now you want the almost-Sexiest Man Alive, too? Don’t be greedy, girl. Okay, be greedy. We understand. Also? Get in line.

Below, see the men for whom Ms. Keaton’s puckered up, plus a few more good men with whom she has yet to lock lips. READ FULL STORY

A dream that you wish will come true? Fake poster casts Ryan Gosling as Walt Disney

Keeping in accordance with the terms of the Internet: Ryan Gosling!

More specifically, a fake poster of Ryan Gosling appearing in a fake Walt Disney biopic (directed by Ron Howard, no less) created by French graphic artist Pascal Witaszek has caught the attention of plenty of folks. Partly because of how incredibly legit the beautiful imposter looks, but mostly because this would actually be sort of a great idea.

Think about it: Between Gosling’s well-known affinity for Disney culture and mankind’s affinity for all things Gosling, casting the Oscar nominee seems like a no-brainer if Hollywood were to make a film based on the life of the famed animator and entrepreneur. (Not to mention, the Academy loves a biopic and let’s face it, they owe the guy after this year.)

George Clooney talks marriage equality and Brad Pitt, kicks off Ryan Gosling's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive campaign

Outspoken Oscar winner George Clooney recently sat down with The Advocate to discuss his appearance in a staged reading of Academy Award-winning Milk scribe Dustin Lance Black’s Prop 8 play, 8. Though the interview primarily dealt with Clooney’s feelings on gay rights, the actor did offer up a few nuggets about his famous friends Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling. READ FULL STORY
