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!
