You asked for it, so we’re going to deliver: the first official (kind of second, though, I guess) ‘Your Daily Gosling’ post. I mean, it might not actually be daily, so the title might be a little misleading, but come on. I know we love Ryan Gosling, but not enough to facilitate an entire post, every single day, dedicated to running photos of Ryan doing something mildly yawn-inducing, like sauntering around Paris with his girlyfriend who probably can’t string two words of French together aside from “bathroom, please?”
[Sidebar - Ahem, I'm almost sort of fluent in conversational French, Ryan, did you know that?]
Anyway. So today’s Daily Gosling is brought to you by amazingly hot dudes who take their mothers and their stupid pillow-lipped girlfriends to the movies at the same time. Isn’t that sweet? He probably bought their tickets, too, with his own money. Know what, though? I wonder if the two main ladies in his life can stand one another. I mean, I know if I were Ryan Gosling’s mom, I’d be all like, “Ryan, sweetie, how about dating a nice, girl-next-door type that isn’t latching onto you because you’re a big, big famous movie star that’s had a lot of exposure over the last year and won’t dump you should someone like George Clooney or Brad Pitt came along because they’re way more famous than you are at this moment and who actually has done decent movies, not things like Ghost Rider and Urban Legends: Final Cut.”
Why do I feel this way? Well, it probably has a little to do with the fact that I’m a bitter harpie that thinks Ryan Gosling should only date girls who appear to be average and pretty and down-to-earth, and not sultry sex-kittens who aren’t afraid to show their tits to the world because they know that practically everyone wants to see anyway.
You know, come to think of it, I’ll bet Ryan Gosling’s mom can’t stand her just on that premise alone. Wasn’t Eva Mendes the one who said, “It’s fun to be a woman. It’s fun to flirt and wear makeup and have boobs.” Deep, right? Isn’t that totally the kind of woman you’d want your only son settling down with and being photographed with and sharing your long-term movie dates with?
Lastly, if I was Ryan Gosling’s mom, it’d be really weird, because I think it’s pretty much frowned upon to have sexually-charged feelings about your son, but hey. I suppose I’ve heard weirder things today. Like that thing Eva said one time about her career:
“I know I walk a fine line between being a respected actor and being what they call a sex symbol. It’s a hard one to walk if you want to be known as a real, credible actor. But I’ve never felt objectified. Nothing you see me do is an accident. I might act like it’s an accident, but the opposite is true. I’m incredibly calculated when it comes to my career.”
So, um. How about we talk about that Ghost Rider thing one more time, huh, girl?

I think it’s going to be a thing around here, maybe, right? Should we do a “Your Daily Gosling”? Does he have enough of a fanbase around here to warrant his own daily post (at least for a little while)? Because honestly, I’m kind of torn these days.
See, way back when Ryan Gosling wasn’t such a thing, I was totally into him. TOTALLY. Back when he was dating a pink-haired Rachel McAdams, and back when his movie repertoire was comprised of a small role in Remember the Titans and a “real” role in Murder by Numbers (which was back when he was hooking up with Sandra Bullock, crazy, right?). That’s when I first sank my hooks into him.

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.
