Ryan Gosling turns 33 today, and while we'd love to wish the dreamy actor a happy birthday, what we have here is more of a gift for anyone who has a crush on him. Gosling has been performing since he was young, and we've watched him go from a cute young actor to a sexy leading man. So to celebrate the man who's made people swoon in cinemas, we have all the movie stills of Gosling looking hot right here.
In case you missed it, Jon Hamm caused quite a stir on the Emmys red carpet when he stepped out sporting a sexy, manly beard. After picking our jaws up off the ground, we started to think about other handsome celebrities who have sported some scruff on the red carpet. And while we've recently had to bid adieu to some of the more well-known beards of Hollywood (we're looking at you, Brad Pitt and Joe Manganiello), we've got a bevy of beauties who currently have more than enough facial hair to spare. Get ready to swoon when you click on!
By now, we're all aware of the huge Fifty Shades of Grey casting news that came out this week, but do you know which actors almost scored lead roles in the racy film? The Hollywood Reporter cited sources saying there were quite a few notable actors who either turned down the roles or were too busy to take on the filming schedule. Click through to see what could have been, and if you're still reeling from Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam's castings, find out why Hunnam might actually be perfect for the role.
Ryan Gosling brought out his whites when he wore a cream Salvatore Ferragamo suit to the Only God Forgives premiere in NYC yesterday. He joined his co-stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm and Yayaying Rhatha Phongam and director Nicolas Winding Refn at BAM's Harvey Theater in Brooklyn to screen the film, which is released in Australia today. We were on the scene to talk to Ryan about his new project, including what it was like to reunite with Nicolas, whom he previously worked with on Drive, and how "intense" Kristin got while channelling her evil character. We also chatted with Yayaying about playing Ryan's love interest, which she was more than happy to talk about, saying, "I think it's every girl's dream to work with Ryan!"
Many of our favourite celebrities work hard for their superstar bodies, and they don't stop perfecting their physiques at the gym. Girls and guys of Hollywood alike seem to love adorning their bodies with tattoos, on arms, backs, legs, and more! Overnight in Nashville, Kristen Stewart joined the inked pack so in honour of her life-long commitment, we've rounded up the most famous celebrity tattoos. We've got Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Reese Witherspoon's markings in here, so click through!
Ryan Gosling is used to being the one directed in shirtless situations, but the roles were reversed yesterday on the Detroit set of How to Catch a Monster when Ryan called the shots. The actor continued production on his writing and directorial debut by shooting scenes with Matt Smith, who has a huge fanbase thanks to his turn as Doctor Who. Matt showed off a shaved head and very muscular physique in the scenes, which saw him singing while standing in a moving car and lifting weights. The fantasy noir also stars Ryan’s The Place Beyond the Pines co-stars Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn, his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks, and Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. It was also recently announced that Warner Bros. had acquired the movie.
The Place Beyond the Pines finds Ryan Gosling re-teaming with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance for a striking drama about fathers and sons. Gosling plays Handsome Luke (yes, he's even dubbed a heartthrob by the announcer at the carnival for which he does motorcycle stunts), a guy from the wrong side of the tracks who finds out he has a baby with an old fling, Romina (Eva Mendes). Luke's discovery and subsequent foray into robbing banks in a misguided attempt to provide for his family would be enough fodder for a whole movie, but The Place Beyond the Pines takes a sharp turn with the entrance of Avery (Bradley Cooper), a well-to-do cop who has a run-in with Luke while on call. Almost immediately, the film becomes Avery's story until the final third when it picks up 15 years later. It's an unorthodox format, but the risk pays off.
The way the film is laid out is one of its most unexpected and potentially polarising elements, as viewers expecting to see Cooper and Gosling share a lot of screen time will be disappointed. Though technically it could be described as a crime thriller, it's really a story about a robber, then a story about a cop, then a story about their kids. Once you get past how jarring the format can be, The Place Beyond the Pines is pretty remarkable. To find out what else I think of the movie, just read more.
You don't have to wait long to see Ryan Gosling on the screen again — this year, he's starring in Only God Forgives, in which he reunites with his Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. In the drama, he plays a former kickboxer seeking revenge for his brother's murder in Bangkok — and while the trailer is very violent, we'll spare you the gory details here. Instead, click on for pictures of Mr. Gosling doing one of the things he does best: looking mighty fine.
