10 Sexy Facts About Ryan Gosling
The handsome star of ‘Crazy, Stupid Love’ has some secrets you may not have known about him… until now.
You know him as “the guy from The Notebook,” but soon, you’ll be referring to Ryan Gosling as “the one who blew you away in Crazy, Stupid Love,” which hit theaters today. People are buzzing about Ryan’s sexy and funny performance opposite Steve Carrell and Emma Stone, and it’s plain to see why. Ryan Gosling is Hollywood’s hidden gem.
So, study up on your new favorite Hollywood hunk, Bettys. Here are 10 sexy facts about Ryan Gosling:
1. He lived with Justin Timberlake.
When he was just a youngster, he starred in The All New Mickey Mouse Club alongside fellow hottie Justin Timberlake, and bunked with the Timberlake family for the two years he was on the show.
2. He has a strong connection to Rachel McAdams.
They tried to fight it in The Notebook, they also tried to fight it in real life, but there’s no denying that Ryan and Rachel have a strong connection. In fact, the two Canadian stars were born in the same hospital! Yep, St. Joseph’s Hospital in London, Ontario should be proud. 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.”
3. He’s a handyman.
To prepare for his role in The Notebook, Ryan was an apprentice for a cabinetmaker. He built some Adirondack chairs and a kitchen table with his own two hands, which were part of the set in the movie. (Ahem, he also makes love to Rachel McAdams’ character on that same table in the flick!)
4. He can laugh at himself…
… or at the crazy things about him on the Internet. Take, for instance, F&%k Yeah! Ryan Gosling, an ingenious website that writes little sayings on pictures of Ryan, like “Hey Girl, my New Year’s resolution is to give you more foot massages.”
5. He’s a jazz-loving musician.
Did you know Mr. Gosling plays the jazz guitar and the piano? He also sings in an indie rock band called Dead Man’s Bones. The group released their first music video in December 2008 for their song, “In The Room Where You Sleep.”
