Mondays are good for one thing! Our Man Crush – Ryan Gosling

Man Crush Monday: Ryan Gosling

Canada has given us many great things. Maple syrup, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber (well, ok the jury is still out) and of course actor Ryan Gosling.  Websites have been alight with the news that Gosling may be in line to play a young Willy Wonka in a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel.  That aside, last Friday saw the release of his latest movie Song to Song. So, of course he’s our Man Crush Monday this week.  Song to Song is a love story set against the backdrop of the rock and roll music scene is Austin Texas. And, you don’t need to be a betting man to know that the indie film from Badlands (1973) director Terrence Malick.


Gosling got his first taste of fame alongside Britney, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera as a member of the infamous Mickey Mouse Club. He landed his first big acting role in 1997 as Sean Hanlon in teen drama Breaker High and has since followed with memorable roles in films such as The Notebook and Drive. Gosling is a regular fixture on Hollywood’s ‘sexiest male’ list so it’s no surprise that he’s always on our MCM radar…

Least likely to…limit himself. He says, “…I also think that something interesting comes out when you do something that you’re afraid of, so I try to take things that I’m not sure that I can do. And this was certainly one of them. I didn’t feel like I was right for this at all, and I wondered how to find truth in a fairy tale.”
