I never got this Ryan Gosling crush thing. What is so great about him? He just looks so boy next door. Like I could have told you that his Wikipedia bio would say “Mickey Mouse Club” before I even read it.
I’ve always preferred my guys a little more rugged. Tousled hair. More brooding. Sweatier.
Like Rick Santorum in a ripped, sexy sweater vest.
No, that’s not right.
I meant to say… a Bradley Cooper/Tim Riggins/ Coach Taylor hybrid.
But Ryan Gosling? I’ll admit that it didn’t help that I sort of thought Jason Lee and Ryan Gosling were the same person. I have no idea why. My mind can been a strange place. At least I’ve now stopped saying, “Ryan Gosling was really good in Vanilla Sky but I did not understand what the hell was going on in that movie.”
But then something happened. I rented Crazy Stupid Love.
(Remember when we all went to Blockbuster to rent movies instead of pushing the “On Demand” button on our remote. Isn’t it so quaint to think of getting in the car, starting it, driving to Blockbuster, perusing the racks, praying they have your movie in stock, and then bringing it home so your significant whatever could say, “Oh that one? Why did you get that one? I don’t want to see that.” And then you scream, “Then go to Blockbuster yourself you jerk!!)
Anyway, I watched Crazy Stupid Love and I started to understand this Ryan Gosling thing. You know, the way fashionistas seem to understand the merits of color blocking and mixing patterns. And by the way, when did we all start saying, “color blocking” like it was normal?
First of all, Crazy Stupid Love is really a good movie.
And second, there is something very very appealing about Ryan Gosling. (He’s one of those actors that you have to use his full name every time you mention him.) His abdominal muscles are insane. And he’s just boyishly cute and charming. So I get you Ryan Gosling lovers. I finally get you.
Other new crushes I may need to discuss in the future….
1. William Levy from Dancing with the Stars (a new, improved and hotter version of Harry Connick Jr.)
2. David Walton from the show Bent with Amanda Peet. (My contractor did not look this guy and now I feel cheated.)
So to recap my post…
Ryan Gosling is not Jason Lee. Ryan Gosling is super cute. So are William Levy and David Walton. I hope my husband knows how much I love him even though I’m writing about celebrity crushes. I still don’t understand the movie Vanilla Sky. Crazy Stupid Love is a much better flick. Blockbuster is old school and caused a lot of fights. The end.
