Ryan Gosling: His Best Hair?

Published in: Hair

Not only does actor Ryan Gosling cause grown women to swoon at the sight of his abs, but homeboy’s also a good samaritan, as demonstrated by this on-the-fly video of him breaking up a fight on a busy New York street.


He swoops in around the 30 second mark… BAM!

Under other circumstances I might scream “HELL TO THE NO!” to the man-pri pants (eww!), but I was momentarily blinded by his bulging biceps (we take the good with the bad).

Born Ryan Thomas Gosling to mom Donna, who worked as a secretary, and dad Thomas, who worked in a paper mill, our boy’s backstory begins on November 12, 1980, in London, Ontario.

His parents divorced when he was young, leaving his mom to raise both Ryan and his older sister, Mandi. The three appear close, as Ryan often attends red carpet events with his mom and sis on his arms (insert collective “awww”).

Ryan cut his performance chops at a young age, singing with Mandi at weddings and performing with his uncle’s Elvis Presley tribute act (!). His first big break, however, came when he was 12 and landed a gig on the The Mickey Mouse Club as a Mouseketeer alongside Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake.

Fast forward to 2004, when a then 24-year-old Ryan (and his abs) starred in The Notebook opposite Rachel McAdams.

That pretty much sealed the deal, ya know? A star was born.

I’m thinking about starting a petition to permanently prohibit him from wearing shirts (for the good of womankind!)… I was moved to act after seeing him in all his ab-a-licious glory in Crazy, Stupid, Love. the other night.


I fear Ryan’s tum might be kept under wraps in his next film, though, a political drama called The Ides of March, set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival next Wednesday.

Oh, well. A girl can dream! 🙂

    I loved him in Crazy, Stupid, Love. His schmaltzy lounge lizard schtick was great.

    Karen — you should have put an option that says “Bad hair or good hair, Ryan Gosling is smokin’hawt!”


  3. Jen says:

    Love Emma Stone’s line at the end of the trailer: “Seriously?! Its like you’re photo-shopped!” Priceless. Based on your review, I think I may need to go see this movie…

  4. thepaigest says:

    I like his hair best when his shirt is off…. it just gives him that extra edge, you know? 🙂

  5. Michelle says:

    Don’t forget his tour-de-force performance in the Canadian teen comedy “Breaker High”.

  6. Michelle says:

    I need to see Crazy Stupid Love also!

    You forgot that he’s an incredible animal lover and takes his dog George everywhere – even on Fallon where he shared an apple with him. He can also be spotted carrying his big ass dog through LAX airport and further stealing my heart…

    I think you should write something up about Alcide on True Blood next. My tv starts to steam when he is in a scene! I bet that guy is eating nothing but poached chicken breast and sweet potatoes.

    I love Ryan. Amazing actor, funny, hot and seemingly has it all together. I recently found a pic of Ryan with his dad at one of his premieres. It made me go “aww” because I think dad’s get left out a lot.

  9. marisol says:

    I vote for option 10 – don’t care about his hair. I just wanna see his abs.

  10. shiny says:

    ooh, #4 looks like Errol Flynn. I always dug the classic hair look anyway!

  11. Cindy G says:

    Lols, it’s like Ryan came out of nowhere to break up that fight.

    Ohhh and I also need to see Crazy Stupid Love asap!

  12. M. says:

    He’s extraordinary in the movie Half Nelson (2006). What an amazingly talented performer.

  13. irini says:

    Okay,is it just me or does he slighly look like Ryan Kwanten in picture 4? Maybe it is just me, I am watching too much TB I see the guys everywhere 😉

  14. Jenna says:

    I couldn’t bring myself to pick #4 because he doesn’t look legal in that pic!

  15. Christy says:

    I saw Crazy, Stupid, Love TWICE! I LOVE him. I even tried to send him fan mail but I don’t think it was ever read :/
