It is a scientific fact that Ryan Gosling is a dreamboat. But, there is more to the Canadian star than rock-hard abs and a handsome face. The actor, who began his career as a kid in the Mickey Mouse Club alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, has starred in some stellar movies including The Notebook, Blue Valentine, Drive, Gangster Squad, Crazy Stupid Love and The Ides of March. He’s as well known for his big screen talent and good looks as he is for his love life – he’s dated Rachel McAdams, Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde and is currently romancing a very lucky Eva Mendes. Some other trivial, yet must-know, facts about the gorgeous Ryan Gosling are: he owns Tagine, a Moroccan restaurant in Beverly Hills, and his dog is called George. This year we’re set to see lots more from Ryan Gosling (lucky us!) with The Place Beyond The Pines already out in cinemas (with girlfriend Eva Mendes in a supporting role) and the eagerly-anticipated Only God Forgives, which sees Ryan team up with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn once again for the Thailand-set crime thriller, which hits multiplexes in July. We. Cannot. Wait.
