16 Reasons Why Ryan Gosling Should Have His Own Holiday

If George Washington can have a holiday, why can't Ryan Gosling have one too? Imagine if Ryantines Day existed...

1. Because he's so shy and modest. / Via

“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.

2. Because look at that smile!


Tiny Ryan is so cute.

3. Because he saved this girl's life!

4. Because he broke up an art fight.

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.

9. Because he looks perfect on a cookie.


10. Because he's a feminist.

11. Because he can play bass guitar...




Be still my heart.

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

15. Because it's okay if his shirt falls off.

16. He even looks great illustrated. So let's put him on a card.

Happy Ryantines Day!
