4Don’t Ask Ryan Gosling To Sign Anything That Isn’t A Photo


Ryan Gosling is everyone’s favorite sweet lil dreamboat, so this tabloid story about his bad behavior had me laughing. It just sounds so silly. Basically, if you ask Ryan Gosling to sign a piece of paper — or anything but a photo of him — he’ll throw a tantrum and won’t do it. (Reminds me of that Mila Kunis story.) Here’s the goss from the Inquirer:

… RYAN GOSLING was about to board a flight at JFK when a professional autograph collector ran up, shoved sheets of white paper at him and asked for autographs.

Said Ryan: “What are these? I don’t sign pieces of paper. I sign my autograph on photos! Where are your photos?”

Whined the signature hound: “How did I know you’d be here? I was waiting for other celebs flying today. But tell you what – I’ll download and attach your photos after you sign these.”

Snapped Ryan: “I can’t just sign my name on a white piece of paper!”

Stammered the autograph hound: “But what’s the difference?”

Said Ryan: “The difference is…I’m leaving. BYE!”

They describe him like he’s Zoolander (“What is this? A center for ANTS?!”). I’m not saying that Mr. Gosling isn’t capable of diva behavior, I’m just saying I doubt he sounds like a Ben Stiller or Will Ferrell character. But who knows? Hey, how about someone try this again with him and report back?

Happy New Year!

    I guess maybe he’s paranoic of someone using a blank piece of paper with his signature on to make fake documents… But the option could be using another type of signature for autographs, rather than the official one, isn’t it?
    Nevertheless, if this was true, it seems pretty diva-ish

    Professional autograph collector? Sounds like a loser. Yeah celebrities should be nice to the public that makes him famous but I’m tired of the public feeling so entitled to their time and autographs. The guy was a schmuck saying he was waiting for other famous people – and gosling was just an unplanned last minute thought. The guy wants a piece to make money not a memory of his favorite actor. I give Ryan a pass on this one

    Nobody likes those professional autograph scalpers. This is blown out of proportion.

    Nothing Diva-ish here. Would YOU sign your name at the bottom of a blank piece of paper? DUH!
