People Magazine is devoting their new issue to Ryan Gosling. The ‘Gangster Squad’ actor has been named ‘America’s Most Wanted Man’ (even though the guy is Canadian, we’ll let it slide). The cover coincides with the release of his new movie, which I’ve got my fingers crossed is half decent. I do wonder how a movie with so much talent can go wrong, but it happens A LOT.
Devoted son, quirky leading man – and everyone’s favorite fantasy boyfriend.
But how does Ryan Gosling stack up in his real-life romance with actress Eva Mendes?
The “hey girl” Internet obsession, 32, “is an incredibly sweet boyfriend,” a Gosling source tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. He and Mendes, 37, “get along so well because she’s not needy or smothering,” says another insider. “They just work.”
Mendes is hardly the only one to fall under Gosling’s spell. The former Mouseketeer – who brought his mom, Donna, as his date to the Jan. 7 Gangster Squad premiere in L.A. – is “funny and charming,” says the film’s director, Ruben Fleischer.
“When you’re with him you feel different. He has a magnetic quality – larger than life.”
And yes, he knows how to work his quirks – everything from self-designed tattoos to an enduring Disneyland fascination.
“Women love him because he’s just kooky,” says the insider. “He’s definitely in touch with his childlike side.”
Speaking of talented actors coming together for a crappy movie, have any of you seen the trailer for ‘Movie 43’?? I am absolutely FLABBERGASTED (yes, flabbergasted) by this movie. I feel like someone should pinch me. It’s a joke, right? The trailer is fake. Please tell me that’s not a real movie. Please tell me Halle Berry did NOT just stick a turkey baster full of God-knows-what up her hootenanny in a restaurant. Does the director have dirt on all these actors? Have they been blackmailed? How many Oscar-winners are in this film? I spot at least 4! SERIOUSLY.
