1. Because he’s so shy and modest.
“I’m not that good looking. I think I’m a pretty weird-looking guy. Every role I got up until ‘The Notebook’ [in 2004] was the weirdo, freak, psychopath, nerd, outsider character guy. I think things have changed.” - Ryan, himself.
5. Because he’s great with animals.
C’mon! It’s Ryan Gosling and A SLOTH! Don’t you wish you could be that sloth?
6. Because he dresses his dog so well.
7. Because he’s already a meme, so the next step is national holiday.
8. Because he looks perfect on a pancake.
Artist Katherine Kaines makes beautiful pancake sculptures of celebrities. Mmmm.
12. Because he gives you a good reason to make out with a cookie.
13. Because you don’t have to be a girl to love him.
14. Because straight, British men would enjoy this holiday too.
“No [I’m not gay]. I can quite happily say someone is handsome, good-looking, and I can see why someone would want to f**k them, but I’ve never felt that way about a man myself. There is that moment in your late teens when you ask yourself the question, ‘Am I?’ but I wasn’t…This year I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he’s fantastic and…(ahem) you know he’d be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay, I would go for a smart man.” - Daniel Radcliffe
16. He even looks great illustrated. So let’s put him on a card.
- Police in Athens used pepper spray on protesters two days ahead of Greece's major bailout vote.
- A medical helicopter crashed in Colorado. The crash killed the pilot and injured two crew members.
- Serena Williams survived an upset at Wimbledon and defeated current Britain's Heather Watson. She'll play her older sister Venus in the next round of the tournament ?
