“She’s kind. She doesn’t need any help from me. She’s inspired me to do so much as well,” Gosling, 26, said Sunday when asked about McAdams’s comments at a junket for his new thriller Fracture.
McAdams, 30, told the magazine’s April issue that her beau – and costar in 2004′s The Notebook – “never does the same thing twice. He’s very brave.”
But Gosling, a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Half Nelson, says McAdams has good judgment in her own right: “She’s the most discerning person I’ve ever met. She’ll read a script 100 times. She’s relentless.”
And she’s not bad looking, either: Asked to comment on McAdams’s cover shot for the magazine, Gosling was momentarily tongue-tied.
“Oh … yeah …” he said. “She looks stunning! Absolutely – yeah!”
