Oh, and Eva Mendes. Because Eva Mendes is dating Ryan Gosling and she’s definitely sleeping with him because they’re serious enough that she shows up for a quick appearance in this video with him. Oh no, I didn’t just ruin this, did I?
I highly doubt it. Because few things are as lovable as Funny or Die’s Drunk History series, few works of Christmas art are as well known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and few things are as creepy as the thought of Jim Carrey dressed as Santa Claus and breaking into your house. This video has everything.

“The director, Nick Cassavetes, called me to meet him at his house. When I got there, he was standing in his back yard, and he looked at me and said, ‘I want you to play this role because you’re not like the other young actors out there in Hollywood. You’re not handsome, you’re not cool, you’re just a regular guy who looks a bit nuts.’”
Before we get into Ryan’s little tale, can I talk about my emotions for minute concerning The Notebook? Because I’ve only seen the movie once. On TV. In my dorm room. And I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am the kind of girl who just eats that stuff up. Like I was sobbing hysterically, just completely losing it so many times during that movie. And then towards the end of the movie, one of my best friends came over to hang out, and respectfully sat down and remained silent while I was having my moment over the ending of that film. BUT THEN, just a few minutes later, my friend’s loudmouth girlfriend came over too, sat down, and proceeded to loudly laugh and mock the movie. During the entire ending. I was trying to have my moment while this girl was making fun of it and me. And yes, I’m still bitter.
But now that I let some of that go, I just want to ask what you think about Ryan’s quote up there. Doesn’t it seem a little wrong to say anything negative about Ryan Gosling? Even for Ryan Gosling to recount something somewhat negative that someone might have said to him years ago? Oh, and by “wrong,” of course I mean “SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP!”

I know, I know, it’s been weeks since People magazine named Bradley Cooper the “sexiest man alive,” and likewise, it’s been weeks since everyone, myself included, threw a fit that Ryan Gosling didn’t receive that title. And believe me, if I could, I would just bury that under the rug. I would just chalk the whole thing up to another one of life’s many injustices, and I wouldn’t have given it another thought.
But Bradley Cooper just said that Ryan Gosling deserved it, and really, am I supposed to leave that alone?
“There was such a backlash to when they announced it and Ryan Gosling, who I love and I just did a movie with him – he’s the greatest ,” said Cooper, who claimed a friend sent him a link to a website comparing paparazzi photographs of the two actors who were both in Paris last week.
“When I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer,” Cooper joked. “And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. And there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in. We don’t know what he does in there!’ So it’s been interesting.”
Cooper admits he’s still coming to terms with all the attention, joking that the “Sexiest” title is “the worst.”
“I’m finally at an age – I’m 36 years old – where I really don’t care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing and then this happened and then I started to realize just how not sexy I am,” he said.
In fact, the new title has made Cooper rethink his day-to-day activities.
“I have a lot of moments where [I’m] walking out and I’ll open up the door [and think to myself], ‘I could do that a lot sexier,’ ” he laughed.
Do you like Bradley Cooper more after that? Because I sure do.*
*Ryan Gosling in 2012!

And now they’re doing it in PARIS. Isn’t that just sultry and smoky and romantic? Doesn’t it make you think of patisseries and antebellum-like architecture and gold-leaf patterned cafe-ware? It should. It should also make you think of Ryan Gosling sticking it in someone who probably can’t rub two brain cells and a book of matches together to cause a spark enough to power the wheel that the demented-assed mouse runs on inside her pretty little head and it should make you angry.
And if you’re wondering if I’m a bitter old harpy that’ll never even set her sights on the gorgeous Ryan Gosling, you’re right. Well, on the bitter part, at any rate, not the “setting her sights on Ryan Gosling” part. That happened, but there were just no sparks, guys. It was dark and I was in a hurry, what can I say.

Earlier this week, Bradley Cooper was named People‘s Sexiest Man of the Year, and I was like “what.” In my mind, this was an active choice to deny Ryan Gosling his rightful title as the most attractive male celebrity of 2011. And I wasn’t ok with that.
As it turns out, a lot of other people weren’t ok with it either. In the video above, you can see a number of people protesting outside of People‘s headquarters with inspirational chants like “Bradley Cooper is just fine, but Ryan Gosling is divine,” and moving signs that read messages like “Hey Girl, I know magazines often create a false dichotomy, catalyze unhealthy standards for female body image and further divide an already strained gender gap … but I totally should have been People‘s sexiest man of the year.”
I am moved beyond words.

Just so you know the subtitle of this post is “Why I Have The Hardest Job in The Whole Wide World.”
On this glorious day, November 12th, in 1980, the world was given a gift. It may have taken just a few years for us to recognize that gift, but in the past few years, we’ve accepted it with an appreciation that is complete and unparalleled.
