What's going on?

Words -Aly Horne

We have a serious problem facing our nation. It’s been brewing for a while now, quietly, crawling over the distant horizon and creeping up on you, day by day. You probably noticed it, but brushed it off. 'It’s not a big deal,' you probably told yourself. 'It’s just a one-off. It won’t happen again.' We’re talking about Emma StoneLa La Land, and the absence of Ryan Gosling.

We’ve been yaaaasing at Emma Stone’s killer outfits at various premieres for weeks. You know what we haven’t been doing? Seeing Ryan Gosling at premieres. Admiring him in sweaters at press junkets. Watching videos of he and Emma Stone joking around together, like co-stars do. By now, it’s probably dawned on you: Ryan Gosling has been conspicuously absent from almost all La La Land promotional events.

She attended an AFI Gala Screening, the 39th Denver Film Festival, the 39th Mill Valley Film Festival, the 73rd Venice Film Festival, and two press conferences… that we know of. Girl gets AROUND, so we wouldn’t be surprised if there were some events that we were missing.

In contrast, here’s Ryan Gosling’s appearances to promote the film. You’ll notice that Emma Stone is with him, so we’ll add at least one more to her tally.

This is the two of them at the Toronto Film Festival, which took place on September 12th. For those of you who haven’t checked your smartphone recently, don’t have a regular school/work schedule, or time travel, today is November 16th. This isn’t just his most recent La La Land appearance — this is his most recent appearance period, which means Ryan Gosling has been missing for TWO MONTHS!?

This is a state of emergency, ya’ll. Somebody take a picture of Ryan Gosling, wherever he is, so we know he’s okay.
