Never mind that it’s only August. Zimbio polled their readers and came up with the hottest 25 actors of 2013. Here’s who they are. Where do you stand? Do you agree or disagree? Number one was surprising to me, in the, “let pause and think, ‘…really?’” way. And can you guess who made the top 10 that also made the top 10 in the Ugliest Men list?
25. Alexander Skarsgard
24. Zac Efron
23. Chris Evans
22. Paul Walker
21. James Franco
20. Ben Affleck
19. Robert Downey Jr.
18. Leonardo DiCaprio
17. Jake Gyllenhaal
16. Liam Hemsworth
15. Ian Somerhalder
14. Orlando Bloom
13. George Clooney
12. Henry Cavill
11. Gerard Butler
10. Channing Tatum
9. Brad Pitt

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are dating and every time I realize this I am surprised. It’s like when you remember an actor who was in a film you saw a long time ago and think, “Oh wow, that’s right, I totally forgot he was in that.”
They’re also working together. Mr. Gosling is directing his girlfriend in his film How To Catch A Monster that is not based on a Goosebumps book but really should be. And in the words of the Bluth family he might be thinking, “…I’ve made a huge mistake.”
From National Enquirer:
Ryan, 32, is directing his 39-year-old Latina squeeze Eva in his directorial debut, “How To Catch a Monster,” spending the spring filming on location in Detroit. He’s gone out of his way not to give his gorgeous girlfriend any special treatment on the set, but sources say he’s gone overboard.
“Ryan’s been harder on Eva [that's what she said] than any of the other actors in the film,” said a friend. “He’s ordered multiple takes of her scenes. Eva is going along with it, but she can’t help asking herself, ‘Is he just doing this to show he’s in charge?’
“I think they both realize now it would have been better for Ryan to go it alone on this film, and for Eva to just visit him on the set.”
Back to the first paragraph, gotta love they feel they have to mention that Mendes is “latina” as though that’s her whole identity and she should be categorized. Or like we forgot. Anyway apparently they were going to marry in the fall but that may not happen due to all of this angst. Also, there’s this, my favorite part of this entire story, and out of any other story:
Making matters worse, Ryan’s still convinced Eva has a crush on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David! As we recently reported, Ryan hit the roof after Eva accidentally sent the chrome-domed comic a gushing text – that was meant for someone else.
I’m guessing this was Larry David’s reaction:

Matt Smith is appearing in Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut How To Catch a Monster, so he’s had some up close and personal time with the cereal-refusing heartthrob and even Doctor Who isn’t immune to his charms. Or, you know, his sexy bod.
From Total Film magazine (via DS):
“I have admired his abdominals in Crazy Stupid Love. Yes, he’s a very handsome man, that’s for sure.”
Smith, who recently shaved his head for the movie, went on to speak of his delight to be working with Gosling.
He added: “He’s cool. He’s bright, you know. He’s got a really clear, really brilliant vision for his film. And I’m a huge fan of his work as an actor. I think he makes brilliant choices.”
This is a dream in slash fiction writer’s heaven. I’m sure there’s actually already stories out there about these two, actually, because you know the rule of the Internet: if you can imagine it, it exists. I found this out a few years ago when a really weird conversation led me to search for “Harry Potter and Fawkes fanfic” (Fawkes being Dumbledore’s phoenix) and yes, it exists. And it’s NC-17. Spare yourself.
Does anyone NOT like Ryan Gosling, though?

Ryan Gosling is adorable and everyone loves him and that’s just the end of it. He’s been the subject of some great memes in the past, but the latest – called ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’ – is probably the best thing you have ever or will ever see for the rest of your days. Posted to Vine by Twitter user Ryan McHenry, so all the credit goes to him.
That’s not even all of them! You can head over here to see the rest. SO GOOD.

It seems no one can resist Ryan Gosling‘s charms, not even Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, whose nether regions were set atingle by the actor when she worked with him on his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. Okay, Christina’s married and there was no mention of tingling genitals, but that’s okay! We can all pretend! What she did say is that she was worried about “disappointing” him and that he’s a very hands on director. Woo hoo!
“Talk about feeling intimidated. [Ryan] called me and asked me if I was interested in doing this film and I said: “One, of course, yes, and two, why me? And three, I don’t want to disappoint you.” He’s been fantastic, involving me artistically and letting me be along the road of casting and costume design. I’ve seen story boards and imagery and I’ve heard music. It’s the largest role I’ve ever had, so this is one I’m definitely aware of my anxiety about.”
Ryan seems like he’d be a cool, laid back director, though I feel like it’s just something for him to do rather than something that’s super important to him and that he’s really dedicated to. Plus, now he’s taking a break from the acting world. What will we do without our dose of Gosling?

As we all remember, Ryan Gosling was on Mickey Mouse Club back in the day with the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, and of course there was a lot of free time between singing cheesy songs and drinking milkshakes in a ’50s-themed diner set or whatever the hell they did (I can’t remember much about it as I was more of a Kids Incorporated fan). How did they entertain themselves? By playing spin the bottle, of course!
Ryan told Metro:
‘Britney was a sweetheart. She lived right above me, the girl next door. The little girl I used to play basketball and spin the bottle with,’ said the 32-year-old.
Sadly, the Drive star, who dates Eva Mendes, says he and Spears are like strangers in the night these days.
Asked if they still hang out now JT is out the way, Ryan said: ‘Not really. I mean, sometimes you are at the same event, but it’s a lot like I imagine what it’s like to run into someone from elementary school.’
I love the idea of a baby Britney and Ryan getting their kiss on as pre-teens. And if Brit’s later cheating is anything to go by, maybe this was happening behind Justin’s back! Oh, snaaaaap! #90sgossip
Anyway, news must’ve been slow for this to even be brought up since it was decades ago (how old do you feel thinking about that?), but it’s clear now that Ryan Gosling was a little Lothario even before puberty.
