  • Ryan Gosling was accidentally involved in a proposal as he talked about his new movie, Lost River, at South by Southwest.

    Ryan Gosling has been talking about his directoral debut, Lost River, at SXSW 2015. There, at the festival, he found himself part of a marriage proposal.

    It all happens in the video below at about 11:30 in. While Gosling and the cast of the new movie, including his girlfriend Eva Mendes, answered questions from the audience, one woman took her chance and asked if she could steal focus for a moment to pop the question to her girlfriend of 11 years.

    Ryan was not at all bothered by the interuption, even offering his mic to the woman, who proposed by saying: ”This really wasn’t planned… but, my heart started pounding and I couldn’t help it.’

    ‘We’ve been together 11 years and have had many ups and downs,’ the woman said as she showed off an open ring box. ‘She finally moved here to be with me just a few months ago after two years of being apart. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you marry me?’
