Ryan Gosling Explains Giggles At Oscars Best Film Mix-Up

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling’s reaction to the much-discussed and dissected ‘Wrong Best Film’-gate incident at last month’s Oscars won him a great deal of respect – but the star has now explained that he was stifling his giggles out of relief more than anything else.

Gosling was on stage with the rest of the La La Land cast and producers at February’s Academy Awards, when a few minutes in to their time proceedings were halted and confusion reigned for a few moments before it was announced that Moonlight had actually won the Best Picture gong.

But the 36 year old star was not just covering up his disappointment when he started giggling at the whole thing.

The cast was in Austin, Texas, this month for the film's premiere at South by Southwest festival, where it was filmed. And Gosling was excited to finally see the finished film. "We made it maybe four years ago now or something," he says, "and so many things happened, it was such a unique process. But it's a Terrence Malick film!"

Malick is notorious for his filmmaking style, in which he shoots a wide range of scenes and then crafts the narrative in the editing room. "My character went through so many different incarnations," Gosling says. "And that's kind of the interesting thing about the way Terrence Malick works. He's sort of finding it as he goes along."

Ryan Gosling Signs Up For Neil Armstrong Biopic 'First Man'

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling is to reunite with his La La Land director Damien Chazelle in a biopic about astronaut Neil Armstrong, in which Gosling will play the first man on the moon.

The 36 year old actor is to play Armstrong in First Man, a project that will begin shooting in 2017. He’s apparently been attached to project for more than a whole year, with rumours beginning in December 2015, but he’s only recently penned a deal for the role.

Josh Singer, an Oscar winner for his script for Spotlight last year, wrote the movie based on James Hansen’s biography ‘First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong’. It is set to centre around Armstrong primarily, but will also tackle the lengthy endeavours that he, NASA and the country had to go through to put a man on the moon in the sixties.

Eva Mendes Reveals Why She Gave Daughters The Same Name

Eva Mendes Ryan Gosling

Actress Eva Mendes is known for keeping her relationship with Ryan Gosling intensely private, so much so that no one knew the couple were expecting their second child until weeks before the baby’s birth. But speaking to Latina magazine, Mendes opened up on the birth of Amada Lee, who shares the name name as her sister Esmeralda Amada.

Eva MendesEva Mendes welcomed second daughter Amada Lee in April

When asked by the magazine why she chose to name both her daughters Amada, Mendes explained: “My grandmother’s name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our oldest. We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn’t feel like those names were her."

Ryan Gosling just made his never-ending female fanbase love him even more with his feminist stance, insisting that women are 'better' than men. And having grown-up surrounded by women and now being the father of two young girls, it's easy to see how he's come to that conclusion.

Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling has always loved women

In an interview with the Evening Standard recently, he made the bold claim that he thought women were better evolved than men, particularly when it came to learning as young children. He should know having two little girls - 18-month-old Esmeralda and newborn Amada - of his own.

The Nice Guys Review

Very Good

Writer-director Shane Black returns to the comedy-noir vibe of his 2005 hit Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with this riotously funny thriller set in late-1970s Los Angeles. It's an entertaining mix of hilarious action mayhem, slapstick and violence anchored by Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, who unexpectedly prove to be a superb comedy double-act.

It's 1977, and private detective Holland (Gosling) is searching for a porn star who was spotted alive after dying in a car crash. His investigation leads him to Amelia (Margaret Qualley), who has hired the thug Jackson (Crowe) to keep people off her tail. After beating up Holland, Jackson realises that maybe they should be working together, as other cases seem to be dovetailing around Amelia's politically powerful mother (Kim Basinger). But now Holland and Jackson are being chased by the legendary assassin John Boy (Matt Bomer). And Holland is having a terrible time keeping his bright 13-year-old daughter Holly (Angourie Rice) from getting involved in this dangerous case.

Gosling and Crowe play Holland and Jackson as a classic comedy duo along the lines of Abbott and Costello or Hope and Crosby: bumbling idiots who somehow manage to save the day due to dumb luck and someone smart looking out for them. In this case, their guardian angel is Holly, and young Aussie actress Rice more than holds her own against these A-list stars. Holly is the only person on-screen who has a clue what's actually going on, and Rice effortlessly walks off with the film, giving a knowing performance that's hugely engaging. The other scene-stealer is Bomer, whose slick, overconfident killer is simply screaming to be taken down a peg or two.

He told ‘Good Morning America’ host Amy Robach earlier this week that he’s enjoying life at home, despite being outnumbered three to one by girls now that he and his wife Eva Mendes had added newborn Amada to their family. “It's heaven,” he said, “it's like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels.”

The Big Short Review


Smart and snappy, this comedy is one of the scariest films of the year, using humour to outline the 2008 economic collapse from the inside. With characters who are based on real people, the film shows how economists made a fortune from the financial devastation inflicted on millions of families. And the movie cleverly points out that all of this happened (and people are still getting away with it) because the general public can't be bothered to pay attention.

Things were so booming in the first years of this century that it was easy for the media to divert the attention of Americans away from the dark underbelly of the financial world, creating big scandals out of nothing, spurring rampant buying sprees and making stars of non-entities like the Kardashians. Meanwhile in 2005, investment expert Michael Burry (Christian Bale) noticed that America's mortgage market was turning toxic. So he offered to "short" it, betting against this always-stable market by purchasing credit default swaps. The banks thought they would make a fortune from him, carrying on their dangerous practices. But other experts saw Burry's point, including the nerdy genius Mark Baum (Steve Carell), the shark-like Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling) and a pair of newbies (Finn Wittrock and John Magaro) who tip off their reclusive mentor Ben Rickert (Brad Pitt). When the economy imploded, these men became billionaires.

Director-cowriter Adam McKay is better known for silly movies like Anchorman, so he packs this film with raucous cutaways to pop culture references of the period, as well as hilariously absurd explanations of economic issues from, for example, Margot Robbie in a bubble bath or Selena Gomez playing blackjack. This approach actually heightens the horror of what's going on as fraudulent bankers and corrupt government officials conspire to undermine the foundations of the economy. Although the explanations still feel like gibberish to mere mortals, it's at least presented in a way that's entertaining.

Ryan Gosling On The 'Cautionary Tale' Of 'The Big Short'

Ryan Gosling Adam McKay Brad Pitt

In The Big Short Ryan Gosling plays a bank trader who along with a few like-minded individuals, helps predict the financial collapse and the housing market crisis by betting against the big banks. While the film blends both comedy and drama, the actor describes it as a ‘cautionary tale,’ that carries a moral message for all.

Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling stars in The Big Short.

“What makes the film special is that although its characters are walking a moral tightrope the film never really is, because the film never celebrates the score that the characters pull of in the end,” Gosling said. For the filmmakers the difficulty lay in finding the balance between telling the story in an entertaining way, but also being careful not to celebrate the end result.

The Nice Guys - Green and Red Band Trailer

If you're on the wrong side of the law and looking for someone to send a special kind of 'message', Jackson Healey might just be the man you call. One day his work takes him to the door of Holland March where he leaves his own particular type of message for Holland, a private detective who's currently a little down on his luck.

When an employee of the Department Of Justice finds that her daughter has gone missing, she employs Healey to find her by any means necessary. Out of his depth, Healey calls on the best private eye he knows. Initially very hesitant to work with the guy who only recently sucker punched him, Holland agrees to help find the girl.

As clues are revealed, it looks like Amelia (The missing girl) has somehow become intertwined with the mob who are trying to branch out in LA. As the amateurs hunt down Amelia, the case takes them down dangerous paths they never thought they'd venture down.

Rachel McAdams' 'The Notebook' Audition Tape Will Give You Shivers

Rachel McAdams Ryan Gosling Nick Cassavetes

Once of the world's best-loved romance movies, The Notebook, has just turned ten, marking a decade since the then little-known actors Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were catapulted into the spotlight with their breath-taking performance and onscreen chemistry.

Adapted from the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, the story charts two lovers who fall in love during the early 1940s. Local country boy Noah Calhoun and heiress Allie Hamilton embark on a romance despite a myriad of issues, including the implications of their different classes and disapproval of Allie's parents.

Gosling's role as Noah was apparently secured fairly early on but director Nick Cassavetes had an extensive hunt for a leading lady to play Allie. In a newly-released audition tape, it's clear to see why Cassavetes and Gosling knew instantly that they wanted the Mean Girls actress for the movie.

Scott Eastwood Circling '50 Shades' Role? Does Anyone Still Care?

Scott Eastwood, the son of Western movie star Clint Eastwood, is the latest in a long line of names to be associated with the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming, ill-fated film adaptation of EL James' raunchy trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey. The role has had to be recast after former Grey, Charlie Hunnam, walked out over purported scheduling difficulties.

The New Grey?

At this point in time, been described as the 50 Shades frontrunner pretty much means that you're the only male actor left in Hollywood who hasn't already been associated with the role. The list's too long for us to name them all, but notable rumoured former "frontrunners" have included Ian Somerhalder, Jamie Dorkin, Ryan Gosling and Matt Bomer.

It was going rather well for the Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her team: after what seemed like ages they'd managed to pull off a great casting decision, choosing two actors on the cusp of big-time fame. However, they were not only hit by a 90k strong petition telling them their choice was wrong; they had to say goodbye to Charlie Hunnam, AKA Christian Grey, and learn their Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson, had a touch of the heebie jeebies too.

Dakota Johnson Could Be Thinking Of Leaving '50 Shades.'

Sons of Anarchy star Hunnam's exit was confirmed earlier this week due to an "immersive TV schedule" that would prevent the actor from being able to fully prepare for the role of Christian Grey. The film took a hit, author EL James sent her best, and fans began to wonder whether Hunnam had secretly been influenced by the petition launched to replace him and Johnson with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel.

Mystery Over Muscle: Benedict Cumberbatch Beats Gosling And Cavill In Sexiest Movie Star Poll

Benedict Cumberbatch Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Bradley Cooper Tom Hiddleston Emma Watson

Benedict Cumberbatch has been crowned sexiest movie star in an unlikely turn of events whereby he raced ahead of typical heartthrobs Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in an Empire poll.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star isn't the most likely sex symbol of Hollywood, but the Brit definitely proved to be best after he was picked by 50,000 more fans than any of the other movie screen hotties. Perhaps the people of the world prefer the mysterious, intelligent look these days - or maybe it's just the accent as 'The Avengers' star Tom Hiddleston came in at second place.

We're surprised at the outcome as 'Man Of Steel' hunk Henry Cavill and 'The Place Beyond the Pines' cutie Ryan Gosling looked like dead certs to receive the honour, with the latter's numerous onscreen romances (we all remember 'The Notebook') and the former's portrayal of Superman, one of the most charming characters ever created.

Ryan Gosling's tattoos. Yeah you've googled them. If you like tattoos and you like curling up in front of a Ryan Gosling movie with a big bowl of popcorn, than you've googled Ryan Gosling's tattoos. But do you know the story behind them?

Well, one of them is a bit of a DIY job in which Gosling tried to draw a monster's hand dropping a bloody heart. The other is a ghostly lady, which looks pretty cool, but there's a real behind the third.

It's the recognizable cover of the children's book, The Giving Tree, which Gosling's mother used to read him as a youngster. The picture book written and published by Shel Silverstein has been translated to numerous languages, though remains one of the most divisive books in children's literature.

'Superman: Man Of Steel' Sequel: Who Will Play Batman?

Zack Snyder Ryan Gosling Josh Brolin Joe Manganiello Max Martini Matthew Goode Superman Batman

The question on every DC fans lips since director Zack Snyder announced plans for the next Superman film, which will feature Batman, is who will play the caped crusader? Christian Bale, who starred in the Dark Knight trilogy, is definitely out of the running as he has no interest in reprising the role.

Ryan Gosling

Here's what we know about the film so far: Snyder announced at last month's San Diego Comic-Con that a sequel is in the works and will star Henry Cavill as Superman. The script is currently being written by David Goyer, who wrote Man of Steel. The film is due to be released in cinemas in 2015, with filming scheduled to begin next year. Owing to the film's tight schedule, reports are suggesting Snyder's casting decisions will be revealed in the next few weeks.

Ryan Gosling Or Josh Brolin - Who Should Be The Next Batman?

Ryan Gosling Josh Brolin

So it would appear as though Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin have ascended to the top of the list for the next Batman. The moody pair are apparently both deemed grumpy and good looking enough to play the mega-rich benefactor-cum-superhero when he next appears, probably in Man of Steel 2 when they’ll be fighting Henry Cavill’s Superman.

But who should it be?

Only God Forgives Review


Audiences expecting Drive 2 from this reteaming of Gosling and Winding Refn will be disappointed: this is a stylishly original movie that refuses to play by the rules. It's a very dark revenge thriller that unfolds like a surreal, blood-soaked dream as it spirals toward an ending that can't possibly be happy. And even though it's difficult to identify with anyone on-screen, the film is emotionally riveting.

Winding Refn sets the story in Bangkok, with Gosling starring as Julian, a passive guy who's working for his older drug-dealing brother Billy (Burke). But when Billy kills a teen prostitute in a drugged stupor, a nasty cycle of revenge begins. Detective Chang (Pansringarm) allows the victim's father (Wattanakul) to avenge her death, which comes at a price. So as Julian seeks his own vengeance, he understands that Chang is the real villain here. Then Julian's mother Crystal (Scott Thomas) turns up, refusing to listen to reason as she storms into the situation and makes everything much, much worse.

Using an Eastern sense of karma, Winding Refn throws Julian, Crystal and Chang into a torturous deathmatch. Events unfold with very little dialog, which emphasises the lurid colours and densely shadowed settings. Expertly shot and edited, the film is awash in ambiguity, making it feel like a David Lynch movie in which much of what we're watching is an absurd nightmare. And even as the morality gets increasingly murky, the film never preaches to us. It's challenging, provocative and extremely unsettling.

Ryan Gosling Admits Blood-Drenched 'Only God Forgives' Will Alienate

Ryan Gosling has defended his latest movie Only God Forgives for what seems like the ten billionth time, though admits the shocking violence and unconventional narrative structure will alienate audiences.

Henry Cavill: "It's 'Essential' Lois Lane Knows Clark Kent As Superman"

Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Chris Pine Superman

Henry Cavill has given the first hint at the possible plot direction for the Batman vs Superman movie, telling io9.com that Lois Lane must discover Clark Kent's secret for the franchise to remain realistic.

"...if we're trying to base it [on] reality, there's no way that Lois has these direct interactions with Superman, and then doesn't recognize Clark sitting next to her in the office," Cavill quite rightly asserted at Comic-Con, "If she falls in love with Superman, and she's ignoring a guy who looks just like Superman, behaves just like him, and has the same kind of mannerisms and behavior, then what does that say about Lois? I like this relationship. She saves him just as much as he saves her."

Has Cavill just hit the nail on the head? It's an issue that has plagued superhero movies for years. In the modern age of movies, filmmakers simply cannot treat audiences like idiots any longer. Lois Lane knows Clark Kent is Superman. She does. So let's see it play out on screen.

When Only God Forgives – one of Ryan Gosling’s moody thrillers – debuted at Cannes Film Festival, opinion was polarized. Some critics were sucked in by Nicolas Winding Refn slick style while others labelled his efforts as dull. If Gosling is more popular anywhere but America, though, it’s in England, and it’s in England that the film next lands.

Ryan Gosling To Play Luke Skywalker's Son In Star Wars Episode 7?

Ryan Gosling Jj Abrams Zac Efron Leonardo Dicaprio Disney Harrison Ford

Ryan Gosling attended a meeting with a view to playing Luke Skywalker's son in Jj Abrams forthcoming Star Wars Episode 7 movie, according to the Latino-Review, which 'broke' the news that Harrison Ford would be returning to the franchise.

Disney is keen to land Gosling for the role though missed out on another high profile star.

According to the website's sources, the studio had a meeting with Leonardo Dicaprio who eventually passed on the project to concentrate on Robotech, a forthcoming "sprawling sci-fi epic" where mankind is forced to use technology to fend off three successive waves of alien invasions.

Is 'Batman Vs. Superman' The Title Of New DC Comics Movie?

Henry Cavill Christian Bale David S. Goyer Zack Snyder Ryan Gosling

After Zack Snyder's Comic-Con announcement that Batman and Superman would meet on screen for the first time in a 2015 Warner Bros. movie and sequel to 2013's Man of Steel, there's now fresh knowledge from screenwriter David S. Goyer that the production team are mulling over a few specific titles. "We're already in pre-production," Goyer told a Comic-Con panel on Sunday. "(The film) comes out in summer of 2015 ... We're actually not sure whether the title is 'Superman vs. Batman' or 'Batman vs. Superman,' but yes, it's that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that's happening," as reported by the NY Daily News. The franchise will apparently eventually build up to match Marvel's Avengers movies with DC Comics' Justice League of America team that should also include Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman.

Zack Snyder Teases Fans With New Movie Concept.

Superman vs. Batman/Batman vs. Superman certainly gets the point across well: two opposing forces fighting it out. But to juxtapose the two characters in such a way seems a bit blunt; not least the question of superiority to whichever superhero's name comes first in the title. Secondly, the 'vs.' part implies the combatants represent antithetical concepts: good vs. evil, light vs. dark, heroes vs. villains, etc.

Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Frame To Become New Batman

Ryan Gosling Joseph Gordon-Levitt Christian Bale Brad Pitt Zack Snyder Henry Cavill

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ryan Gosling are leading the race to become the new Batman, following the announcement at Comic-Con that both Superman and the Caped Crusader will unite for the first time on-screen.

Following the success of Man of Steel, it is likely that Henry Cavill will return as Superman, though with Christian Bale announcing his departure from the Batman franchise, the race is on for one of Hollywood's hottest roles.

As it stands, bookmakers Paddy Power have Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the 3/1 favourite to play the role, though many would regard it as an odd choice, given his role as 'Robin' in The Dark Knight Rises.

Julian has been wanted for murder for 10 years and is on the run living in Bangkok. He owns a Thai boxing club behind which he runs deeply organised drugs ring. He may be loaded, handsome, fearless and be able to get whatever he wants, but the one thing he does want he just can't seem to make happen: revenge. After his disturbed brother brutally kills a young prostitute, ruthless former cop Chang (aka the Angel of Vengeance) lets her father execute her killer before mercilessly cutting off his hands to restore order. Consumed by grief and yearning for reprisal, Julian - encouraged by his criminal mother Jenna - sets out to destroy the Angel of Vengeance, but after losing in a one-to-one fight, he realises he must find another way to avenge his brother's death.

Ryan Gosling Has Just 17 Lines In Five-Star 'Only God Forgives' [Pictures]

Ryan Gosling Kristin Scott Thomas Nicolas Winding Refn

Ryan Gosling's new movie Only God Forgives has received a slew of five-star reviews following its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, though the bankable American star has just 17 lines in the violent thriller. Gosling plays a Bangkok boxing ring owner seeking revenge in Nicolas Winding Refn's latest film, which boasts another pulsing soundtrack by Clint Martinez.

In his review of the film, the Guardian's film critic Peter Bradshaw said, "It is ultraviolent, creepy and scary, an enriched-uranium cake of pulp, with a neon sheen," adding, "Only God Forgives will, understandably, have people running for the exits, and running for the hills. It is very violent, but Winding Refn's bizarre infernal creation, an entire created world of fear, really is gripping." Gosling's lack of dialogue allows Kristin Scott Thomas - one of the greatest of her generation - to thrive, and the British-French actress steals the movie away from her popular co-star. She was in attendance at the photo-call for the movie at Cannes, though Gosling chose not to attend.  "I can't believe that I'm not in Cannes with you," the actor wrote in a letter which was read out by Cannes director Thierry Fremaux at a press conference this week, "I was hoping to be coming but I am in the third week of shooting my movie. I miss you all. Nicolas, my friend, we really are the same, simply in different worlds and I am sending you good vibrations. I am with you all." Err, yeah, fair enough Ryan.

His absence is a blow to the festival, with organisers probably banking on the popular Hollywood star as one of marquee names.

Joss Whedon Hints At Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch For 'The Avengers 2'

Joss Whedon The Avengers Ryan Gosling Mila Kunis

Joss Whedon has hinted that the brother-sister comic book duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch could feature in The Avengers 2. "I've got these two characters, two of my favourite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act," he told Yahoo at the Iron Man 3 premiere, "They're in the movie."

Though he didn't directly reference Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - and other siblings in the Marvel Universe include Aurora and Nothstar - the brother and sister are considered the most likely characters. Andrea and Andreas von Strucker, the villains collectively known as Fenris, are also twin brother and sister. There had been some speculation as to whether Marvel owned the rights to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (given that they're essentially X-Men chatacters) though during an interview with Hey U Guys, studio boss Kevin Feige said, "It's a little complicated. If they want to use them in an X-Men movie they could, if we want to use them in an Avengers movie we could. So that's that then.

Despite originating in the X-Men stories, the characters have actually played a central role in many of the biggest Avengers storylines. The question now is of course, who will play the brother sister team? Ryan Gosling? Mila Kunis? Is there anyone left who hasn't yet played a comic-book hero in either X-Men or The Avengers?

The Place Beyond The Pines Review


Mainstream audiences may be disappointed that this isn't a gritty thriller pitting the acting talents of Gosling and Cooper against each other, as it's instead a boldly artful, often moving drama. The three-part structure may soften the emotional punch, but a raw script and intimate direction let the actors find real resonance in every scene.

The title is a loose translation of the Mohawk word Schenectady, the New York town where the story is set. In the first section, carnival stunt rider Luke (Gosling) returns to town and tries to rekindle a previous fling with Romina (Mendes). When he discovers that his last visit produced a son, he decides to leave the circus and settle down, taking a job with a local mechanic (Mendelsohn). To make some extra cash, the two team up to rob banks, which puts Luke on a collision course with beat cop Avery (Cooper), who has a wife (Byrne) and young son of his own. Years later, their now-teen sons Jason and AJ (DeHaan and Cohen) discover a past connection they knew nothing about.

To explore the generational ramifications of these men's actions, the film switches perspective twice, first from Luke to Avery and finally to Jason and AJ. But the script never simplifies anyone into "good" or "bad": these are complex people facing difficult situations the best way they can. And sometimes their choices lead to tragic consequences. With this structure, though, the characters are somewhat fragmented, and only Avery emerges as a fully rounded figure, giving Cooper the best role in the film as he becomes unable to work out what is right and wrong, even though he knows it in his gut.

Anna Kendrick Tweet Goes Viral. You Did WHAT At A Ryan Gosling Movie, Anna?

Anna Kendrick Ryan Gosling Eva Mendes

That Anna Kendrick Tweet about Ryan Gosling? Yup, that went viral. For those of you that haven’t seen the tweet, which got re-tweeted like crazy last night, the seemingly butter-wouldn’t-melt Scott Pilgrim actress posted a racy tweet about the actor Ryan Gosling, to her 669,000 followers, who then helped her out a little by spreading the word.

The ‘offending’ tweet (although it seems most people saw the funny side, read “Ugh – NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered inappropriate.” Move over Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Anna Kendrick’s wit is sharpening and if she’s got any more snappy jokes like that up her sleeve, we reckon she’d be the perfect choice for next year’s Golden Globes. The tweet has already been re-posted over 28,000 times and marked as a favorite tweet over 23,000 times and will have gained Hendrick quite a few new followers.

Hendrick isn’t a very avid tweeter and hasn’t posted anything since last night, though frankly, if you had had such a great response to a single tweet, you’d probably just lie back and bask in your own social media success for while, would you not? When she’s not ‘enjoying herself’ at Ryan Gosling movies, Kendrick is preparing for the release of forthcoming movie Get A Job, in which she stars alongside Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston. And presumably, praying for the end of Ryan’s relationship with Eva Mendes.

Anna Kendrick's Tweet About Ryan Gosling Shows No Sign Of Slowing Up

Anna Kendrick Ryan Gosling Edgar Wright

Anna Kendrick's tweet about Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling went viral this week and shows no signs of slowing up, having been re-tweeted over 7,000 times in less than 24 hours. The racy message has now been shared by Twitter users 20,713 times and has been favourited over 23,000 times.

In case you hadn't heard, the 27-year-old Pitch Perfect actress tweeted, "Ugh-NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in the theatre again. Apparently sitting in the back row and masturbating is still considered 'inappropriate'." The tweet - posted at 10.45am on Monday - lit up the internet and received a slew of replies almost immediately. One user joked, "The hell it is! I do that at Gosling movies and I never get in trouble," while another suggested, "They should put this in the trailers for Gangster Squad to get people to watch. Best testimonial yet." A pretty good idea considering the movie has a dismal score of 34% on Rotten Tomatoes - the New York Times critic A.O Scott said, "Gangster Squad would have been more fun as an animated feature, with fanciful animals in the principal roles." Kendrick - who has over 600,000 followers on the micro-blogging site - has not posted since the tweet in question.

Despite her love for Gosling, she has been in a relationship with the Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright since 2009.

Anna Kendrick's Inappropriate Ryan Gosling Tweet Goes Viral!

Anna Kendrick Ryan Gosling Eva Mendes Edgar Wright

Anna Kendrick lit up the internet on Monday (January 12, 2013), tweeting a deadpan and frankly hilarious message about her love for Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling. The 27-year-old has starred alongside the likes of George Clooney, Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Robert Pattinson, though it appears Kendrick is longing for a starring role alongside everyone's favourite leading man, Gosling.

Kendrick tweeted, "Ugh-NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in the theatre again. Apparently sitting in the back row and masturbating is still considered 'inappropriate'". Posted at 10.45am on Monday, the message has been re-tweeted 20,713 times and favourited over 17,000 times. Replies to the surprising tweet began flooding in almost immediately, with one user saying, "HAHAHAHA you're actually amazing omg. I wish you followed your fans cause I would DIE to be followed by you!" Another user - Emily Higgins - had an ingenious idea, saying, "They should put this in the trailers for Gangster Squad to get people to watch. Best testimonial yet." Not a bad idea, considering Gosling's new movie is garnering less than impressive reviews. Finally, Scuba Cat offered the less helpful, "Wow I love you."

Despite the tweeting, a date probably isn't on the cards, given Kendrick has been linked to the Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright since 2009. Gosling also seems pretty infatuated with actress Eva Mendes too. Oh well.

Gangster Squad Review

Very Good

This may be based on a true story, but the filmmakers never bother exploring the complexities of historical events, instead opting for a comic book-style approach that's entertaining but somewhat unsatisfying. Still, this style-over-substance approach at least produces a rollicking police thriller that's often a lot of fun to watch, packed with gifted actors who gleefully chomp through the scenery.

The setting is 1949 Los Angeles, where the notorious gangster Mickey Cohen (Penn) is launching a Chicago-style mob takeover of the city. The police chief (Nolte) is determined to stop him, but feels surrounded by corruption, so he hires straight-arrow detective John (Brolin) to head up a secret squad that will operate off the books to stop Cohen, whatever it takes. John's pregnant wife (Enos) isn't thrilled by this, but she helps him select his team: techie Conway (Ribisi), gunslinger Max (Patrick), hot-shot Coleman (Mackie) and quick-learning rookie Navidad (Pena). And then there's pretty-boy detective Jerry (Gosling), who courts danger by launching a fling with Mickey's moll Grace (Stone). Understandably, their task doesn't go smoothly.

Billed as the untold story of what really happened, the film ignores quite a few key facts while indulging in implausible plotting and overly colourful characterisations. In other words, it's impossible to believe anything we're watching, which eliminates all of the relevance and resonance that could have filled this story of police corruption, out-of-control capitalism and especially the use of illegal methods to do the right thing. Instead, the film is all shiny surfaces, with flashy production design, too-immaculate costumes and haircuts, and a plot that reduces a complex situation into a simplistic action movie narrative.

Wait, Has Henry Cavill Signed On For Fifty Shades Of Grey?

Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Mark Wahlberg Michael De Luca Daniel Craig Ian Somerhalder Michael Fassbender

As Hollywood rolls into awards' season, the head honchos at Universal Pictures and Focus Features are probably busy plotting for 2013 having landed the rights to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Paramount and Mark Wahlberg's company all placed bids for the rights in one of fiercest movie bidding wars of recent times. Despite the general critical mauling of E.L. James book (though massive sales figures), the movie boasts a pretty impressive team. The Social Network producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti have signed on while Terra Nova's Kelly Marcel will pen the script.

But that's all the boring stuff. We want to know who's playing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele right? Murmurings around Hollywood suggest Ryan Gosling is pretty much everyone's first choice to play the wealthy protagonist. Universal want Gosling, the producers want Gosling, the fans want Gosling, hell, Gosling probably wants the role himself. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have the Drive actor as 2/1 favourite, though one man threw a pretty giant spanner into the works this week. He's the third favourite with the bookmaker, he plays Superman in the forthcoming movie Man of Steel. He is Henry Cavill

The 29-year-old British actor - who screen-tested for the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig got the part - discussed Fifty Shades of Grey during a recent interview with Details magazine. When quizzed as to whether he would take the role, Cavill gave a curious answer. Whereas Gosling, Ian Somerhalder and Michael Fassbender have coyly laughed off suggestions of becoming Mr Grey, Cavill said, "Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel." The interviewer observed that Cavill spoke in "the measured tones of someone who knows his way around a Hollywood gag order."

Why ‘Skyfall’ Could Land James Bond An Oscar Nomination

Daniel Craig Sam Mendes Javier Bardem Judi Dench Coen Brothers Forest Whitaker Leonardo Dicaprio Ryan Gosling Steven Spielberg Ben Affleck

'Skyfall', the new James Bond movie directed by Sam Mendes, hits cinemas on November 9 and already attention is turning to whether or not the picture could snag a surprise Oscar nomination.

'Oscar bait' is a term often used to describe a movie awash with all the key themes that the Academy so readily rewards. For example, they're suckers for epic dramas (Titanic, Gladiator), romance (Shakespeare in Love, The English Patient) and movies packed full of previous Oscar winners (Traffic, The Kings Speech). Oscar bait movies usually hit cinemas at the same time each year- in November or December, wafting themselves under the noses of the Academy just weeks before nominations are announced.

This year, Sony seems to have thrown 'Skyfall' into the fray as Oscar bait, so does the film have a realistic chance of a nomination? Well, as HitFix.com rightly points out, the movie has attached an Oscar winning director in Mendes, an Oscar winning and three time nominated actor in Javier Bardem and an Oscar winning actress and six-time nominee in Judi Dench. Its screenwriter is a three-time nominee while cinematographer Roger Deakins is a nine-time nominee who is almost certain to scoop the prize come February if industry insiders are to be believed. Deakins - best known for his work on just about every Coen Brothers movie - is revered in the movie business and often considered the finest cinematographer of all time. On top of all this, Skyfall's production designer, art director and second unit director have all been handed nominations in the past: i.e - the movie has all the bases covered.

Drive Review

Based on the James Sallis novel, this lean, stylish thriller is confidently assembled to pull us into an outrageous series of events. And it's no surprise that Refn won best director at Cannes for his fine work here.

A young Hollywood stunt driver (Gosling) moonlights as a getaway driver, overseen by his mentor Shannon (Cranston), who has just negotiated a partnership with businessman Bernie (Brooks) and his shady partner Nino (Perlman). But the driver's isolated life is breached when he gets to know single mother Irene (Mulligan) and her young son (Leos) who live in his building. And when Irene's husband (Isaac) is released from prison, the driver offers to help clear an old score so he can start with a fresh slate. Of course, nothing goes as planned.

Video - Ryan Gosling Breaks Up Fight

The videographer who captured actor Ryan Gosling break up a New York street brawl earlier this summer (24Jun11) has revealed the savvy star offered cash to end the squabble. The Notebook star was strolling through the streets of the East Village when he came across two men fighting in the middle of the road. Passersby had begun to gather nearby to watch the commotion, and Gosling stepped in to break up the spat over the ownership of a painting. Photographer Valeria Alvea, who captured the footage on camera recalls "Ryan Gosling took the two men to the corner of the street, like a chaperone and he had them explain the story, but things began to escalate again quickly. Ryan put a stop to it, then he asked, 'How much is the painting?' "The painter told him it was $10. Ryan gave him $20 and said, 'Does this cover what the man owes you?' The painter thanked him and Ryan continued on his way."

Fracture Review

It is hardly a reassuring sign when one of the more interesting things in a film is not even sentient. Over the title sequence of Fracture, and in the midst of some of the duller stretches (of these there are many) we see a glittering sort of Rube Goldberg contraption, all shiny metallic tracks and carved wooden wheels, where small glass balls skitter and roll in an elaborately choreographed dance. It's a beautiful piece of elegant machinery and, one hopes, symbolic of the many complex and artfully managed plot twists to come. Instead, what we're given is Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling sleepwalking around each other as they navigate through one of the year's laziest films.

Fracture has no excuse to be so lazy, given the actors at its disposal and a setup that should have made this an easy slam-dunk. Hopkins plays Ted Crawford, an aeronautics engineer who's found out that his wife Jennifer (Embeth Davidtz) is having an affair with police detective Rob Nunally (Billy Burke). Confronting her at home, Crawford shoots her in the head and calmly waits for the cops to arrive. When they do, it's with none other than Nunally at the lead, who's shocked and enraged at finding Jennifer in a pool of blood and Crawford standing there as though nothing had happened. After a quickly-interrupted beating from Nunally, Crawford later confesses and even waives his right to a lawyer. When it's all dropped in the lap of assistant district attorney Willy Beachum (Gosling), the case couldn't seem more airtight, which is good since Beachum can't wait to slip the bonds of lowly civil employment for a well-paying private sector job.
