7. He’s a foodie.
Ryan’s favorite food is calamari, which unfortunately isn’t on the menu of his Moroccan restaurant, Tagine, which he opened with two of his friends in Beverly Hills, CA. However, there is a Cremeux Aux Chocolat Jivara (granola and vanilla-caramel ice cream) on the dessert menu, which sounds pretty fabulous.
8. He gets mistaken for Ryan Reynolds all the time.
True, they’re both hot Canadian actors named Ryan, but the similarities pretty much end there between Gosling and Reynolds. And yet, fans can’t tell the two apart. Gosling told Interview magazine recently, “I can’t tell you how many times people go, ‘Are you Ryan?’ And I go, ‘Yeah.’ And they say, ‘Can I get a picture?’ Then they take the picture and realize, in that moment, that I’m not Ryan Reynolds. I can see the disappointment in their faces.”
9. His first was Ellen DeGeneres.
We’re talking about his first television appearance, of course, which was on Ellen in 2007… just three years ago, can you believe that? Well, he does a pretty good job for his first time, and even tells a funny story about his mom accompanying him to the Academy Awards with her “beehive” hair-do.
10. He has the best abs in Hollywood.
Um, if you’ve seen the trailer for Crazy, Stupid Love, then you already know what we’re talking about. Those have not been photoshopped, Emma.
