It’s hard to say a negative thing about Ryan Gosling because, well, he’s Ryan Freakin’ Gosling. He’s the cute kid who went from Mouseketeer to Breaker High to Remember the Titans to the hottest hottie around in The Notebook and Drive and Crazy Stupid Love. Really, it’s tough to look at him and not see abs and sexy and beauty and abs.
Gosling has been in Paris promoting his directorial debut, Lost River, since Tuesday. And if you were hoping for Crazy Stupid Love Gosling, we hate to tell you, he’s been replaced. By Dad Gosling.
Don’t get us wrong, he’s not exactly a goblin wearing dad jeans but once you remove the Gosling blinders and really focus in on what’s in front of you, you’ll notice some chinks in his normally pretty armour: The floppy (and dare we say, greasy?) bangs. The scruff and unruly sideburns are more lazy than manly. That shirt with that suit? So. Grey.
He went for a more casual look at today’s photocall in London and while his hair is much improved, his shirt looks two sizes too big and straight out of a bowling league.
Look, we get it. We can’t all have good days. He’s been travelling, promoting his labour of love. And he’s a daddy now. When there’s a baby, we know there’s going to be sleepless nights. Yes, that makes him attractive in a different way, that Ryan is doing his duties as a father. So we totally respect that and swoon in a different way. We feel for you!
But please, Crazy Stupid Love Gosling, come back soon. Pretty please.
