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!

Tag: Ryan Gosling (21-30 of 59)
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 »
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.’”
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 »
The 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 »
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 »
It’s here, sweethearts! The day of blood sugar-spiking chocolates, overpriced greeting cards, overly complicated Garry Marshall movies, and, uh, inept role-playing exercises (is that a champagne bucket on your nether regions, or are just happy to see me, Clive Bixby?). In honor of Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d take a look at some of our loveliest posts. Below, we present celebratory plans of attack for saps and singles alike. READ FULL STORY »
It’s not with chocolates, it’s not with roses, it’s not even by luring him with the promise of adorable hipster dogs or intentionally getting into street fights in the hope that he’ll show up in a tank top and break it up. No, all you’ll need to do to get Ryan Gosling out of Eva Mendes‘ arms and over to your place this Valentine’s Day is… pay cable! And you thought paying for 789 channels would all be in vain.
In honor of Valentines Day, Time Warner Cable will be offering Ryan Gosling movies on their On Demand feature until Feb. 27. After heading to the aptly titled “Ryan Gosling” section in Movies on Demand, for up to $4.99 a pop you can re-establish your crush on 2011′s
boy man wonder with his swoon-worthy flicks like The Notebook (that kiss!), Lars and the Real Girl, Remember the Titans, Crazy, Stupid, Love. (those abs!) and Drive. (What? Just us? Nothing says defending your lady’s honor quite like smashing in another guy’s head in an elevator.)

Just a few short months ago, the entertainment world couldn’t get enough of Ryan Gosling. We all lauded his badassery in Drive. We praised his A-list star-making performances in The Ides of March and Crazy, Stupid, Love. He broke up street fights in New York, inspired countless Tumblrs and memes, became an Internet feminist icon, and even publicly stood up to McDonald’s for its alleged mistreatment of hens. Hens!
Thanks to stellar reviews and the fandom surrounding Gosling, the actor seemed like a lock for a nomination for nearly every awards show. Especially since the awards shows like the Oscars have historically rewarded actors experiencing pop culture moments (see: Sandra Bullock). And in 2011, nobody’s moment was bigger than Gosling’s.
