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.

'I think women are better than men', he said. 'They are stronger. More evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.'

He confesses that he's definitely in touch with his feminine side, that he's 49 per cent or 47 per cent female depending on 'what day you catch [him]'. He even hopes that the United States will be blessed with its first woman president in the near future. 'I think it needs a woman's touch', he said.

Gosling, who has been dating Eva Mendes since 2011 after meeting on the set of 'The Place Beyond the Pines', was raised by his mother after his parents divorced when he was 13-years-old, alongside his sister Mandi who inspired him to take up ballet and perform alongside her. It explains a lot about his girl-y mindset.

'I've always liked women more', he continued. 'I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better.'

Gosling stars in the newly released comedy 'The Nice Guys' with Russell Crowe and is due to appear in the Terrence Malick music drama with Michael Fassbender.
