Oh, hey. There’s no tellin’ how this news day is going to go, and on the off chance that it’s a slow one, I’m thinkin’ we might as well get these really cute photos of Ryan Gosling by Mario Testino out of the way. They’re part of a series called “How To Look Like a Movie Star” and they were shot for GQ.
Is there anything hotter than a hot guy who believes in Santa Claus playing a ukulele and being all warm and charming and hot and old-fashioned and HOT? Let me force-feed you the answer: NO.
And just in case the endearing above video wasn’t enough for you, there’s a Ryan Gosling photo gallery down there for you to page through on this beautiful Friday morning. Because I love Ryan Gosling, and there’s no such thing as crossing the line into obsession when it comes to too much LOVE.
“I loved the idea that Walt Disney had this dream of a place and then made it a reality. The fact that somebody believed in their idea so much to make it a reality… I want to be that kind of person. My mother still believes in Santa Claus. We tried to break it to her once, but she wasn’t having it.”

Are you guys hip to Tumblr? If not, I’ll let you in on this neat little trick: fuckyeah_______.tumblr.com. Seriously, fill anything into the blank – unicorns, popcorn, Jesus Christ – and you’ll get a blog devoted to that topic. So obviously, there’s a Fuck Yeah Ryan Gosling Tumblr, what with him being so dreamy and all. I don’t know if the fact that he knows about it should blow my mind so much, but it really does. It also opens the door to so very many questions.
If you knew that people were on the internet putting romantic captions on pictures of you, would you check it out? If so, would it creep you out or boost your game? And what’s next, Adam Lambert giving dramatic readings of poorly written fan fiction from Livejournal?
This is just a sample of the tough questions I’ve been trying to tackle today, but I only have one new certainty: Ryan Gosling is beautiful and charming and possibly my new favorite person. We can discuss this in the comments, right?
Kirsten Dunst gets a lot of flack – at least from what I’ve seen – but you know what? I like her. There’s just something raunchy-hippie-likable about her, and she looks like she eats Oodles of Noodles (or, you know, ‘Ramen Noodles,’ if you want to call ‘em by their wrong name). Anyone who eats those? Cool in my book. I also think that she’s pretty talented as far as actresses go. I mean come on. Jumanji? Elizabethtown? Girl’s got some serious acting chops.
So for those of you who smugly thought that her career was over after the Spiderman movies, you thought wrong – Dunsty has a new movie coming out called All the Good Things, and it looks … pretty great, actually.
It’s got murder, social hierarchy, Mercedes(es … Mercedii?), effed up families that make their kids do effed up things, and above all, RYAN GOSLING.
I hadn’t heard about it ’til now – a bit behind the game on this one, as it premiered last night – but it sounds intriguing, and ’cause I love Kirsten Dunst, going to the movies, and Ryan Gosling, I think I’m going to have to make a date to check it out.
What do you guys think of the trailer? Will you see it?
The flick, which will be debuting in theaters soon (some say December in the US), has finally released its trailer to those who weren’t lucky enough to see it at the film festival at Cannes or Toronto, and it looks good. The rating, however, might deter a lot of theaters from future showings, and it might further prevent a lot of people from checking it out. The film’s current MPAA rating is NC-17, due to sex scenes that many are considering ‘raw’ and ‘explicit,’ but sources are saying that there’s a possibility that the films editors might remove such footage to drop the rating down to a family-friendly ‘R.’
I don’t give a shit either way, me. The trailer is cute, kitschy, and has a distinct hipster-indie vibe, and that makes it all-around appealing to me. Plus it depicts Ryan Gosling having sex. Could it get any better than that? …
I’ve gotta see it. Any of you lucky enough to be at either of these film festivals, or maybe somehow snagged a bootleg of the production? I mean, I know that kind of thing is sort of frowned upon by the law and whatever, but it’s not as if I’m going to tell anyone or anything.
