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?
