Apparently the ladies aren't the only ones who love a good Ryan Gosling meme. "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier took to Twitter today to share a LOL-worthy image of himself and the "Only God Forgives" actor from last night's premiere.
And now we're suddenly filled with so many possibilities...
Last night was the big New York premiere of the exciting new thriller "Only God Forgives"—which means that you should clear your morning schedule now, because the next several hours of your day will be spent ogling the roundup of photos of Ryan Gosling, the film's star, looking like a summer-suited dreamboat on the red carpet. A linen suit, an artful scruff, a tantalizing wedge of golden chest flesh visible between the gently parted lapels of his crisp white shirt...uh, did we say "morning"? Scratch that; we're gonna need to take the whole day to consider this sexiness. Alone. With the door locked.
"Only God Forgives" follows the mysterious Julian (Ryan), a drug smuggler working in the high-stakes criminal underworld of Bangkok, Thailand. And if you're getting a sense of deja vu, you're onto something: Ryan chatted with MTV's Josh Horowitz about the parallels between this film and "Drive," which also starred the actor as an enigmatic law-breaker in a performance directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (watch the interview after the jump!).
"Sam & Cat" star Jennette McCurdy is a girl after our own heart. Especially when it comes to her Hollywood crush. But
hey girl will have plenty of competition from us and about 4.7 million other women (including Eva Mendes) for this actor's attention.
Ryan's currently filming his directorial debut, "How to Catch a Monster," which reportedly just cast its young lead, Iain De Caestecker.
Have you embraced an evergreen today? April 22 is Earth Day—an observance uniting millions around the globe in a single mission to clean up our planet. Our friends over at MTV Act have a list of five ways to take action on Earth Day, and it's a good one. After you've checked off a few items and done your part, why not treat yourself? With what, you may be asking. How about a handful of hot guys who've also gone green (by way of their clothing)? Sure, they're not all environmentalists, but no one's perfect!
Hollywood Crush's boyfriend Ryan Gosling is a sucker for a sapphire suit, evidenced by two separate though similarly hued looks he's sported over the last couple of years. The actor cut quite a form in a sleek green Gucci suit at the "Ides of March" premiere in L.A. in 2011, and in March, crushed us in a velvet number at "The Place Beyond the Pines" premiere in New York.
Ryan's made his commitment to the environment known, most recently penning a letter decrying the poor treatment of cattle.
Are you sitting down, Crushers? Okay, good. Because we have some news. Some bad news. We'll just spit it out: Ryan Gosling is taking a break from acting. We know. We know. It wasn't over for us, either. It sill isn't over.
...But apparently it is. For now, at least. Baby Goose, himself, had this to say to the Associated Press: "I've been doing it too much. I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."
Apparently our fanfic has been falling on deaf ears.
Anyway! Luck for us, Ryan has several starring roles in the can already, including "The Place Beyond the Pines" and "Only God Forgives," and he'll be working on his directorial debut "How to Catch a Monster," so he won't be out of the spotlight completely.
Ryan's been vocal in the past about the benefits of a "real job" (having worked briefly at a deli following "The Notebook"), and if he's looking to get his hands dirty once again, we'd like to offer a little career counseling. Because there are lots of things he'd be good at besides acting. How about Lumberjack Ryan Gosling? (I mean, he owns all of that flannel already...)

FROM MTV NEWS: If we had the ability to rename this blog Ryan Gosling Crush And Other Things That Are Almost As Important, we'd consider it. Seriously. But since we don't, we'll continue to provide any and all Ryan Gosling-related materials as often as we can without shirking our other responsibilities.
Which brings us to this nifty exclusive that debuted earlier on MTV News. It's a look at some brand-new snaps of both Ryan and his "The Place Beyond the Pines" co-stars Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper in their new film out March 29. Plus an interview with director Derek Cianfrance. So get your Gosling fill until release day with these hot pics.

FROM NEXTMOVIE: Opening tomorrow, "Oz the Great and Powerful" delves into the backstory of the man behind the curtain—unfurling a tale of a con-man magician, three beautiful sorceresses and a land in turmoil. And, in the process, got our friends over at NextMovie thinking: What would some other classic films' prequels look like? (A "Gone With the Wind" prequel starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone? COUNT US IN.)

FROM NEXTMOVIE: Remember how Ryan Gosling is making his directorial debut with "How to Catch a Monster," a script he penned himself, which follows a young boy who discovers a road to an underwater town? Well, rumor has it that Ryan has cast his another lead (in addition to already announced Christina Hendricks), and it's a lovely lady he knows well—both on and off screen. Have you figured it out yet? Why, it's his main squeeze, Eva Mendes! Boy, it's rough being a Gosling girlfriend.

FROM NEXTMOVIE: Ryan Gosling is a man of simple needs: a Mohawked dog, a fresh white tank and...a coffee cup with his likeness on it. Apparently.
During a recent interview, the actor bemoaned that, unlike the promotional efforts of mob movies from his childhood (see: "Dick Tracy"), "Gangster Squad" didn't have cool merch, like promotional cups from Burger King. Well, not anymore. The Gos landed his very own mug from motherland donut hut Tim Hortons.

FROM MTV NEWS: By now, you've probably heard the revelation that if things had gone a little differently, Hollywood Crush Muse Ryan Gosling might have been larger than life as a member of the Backstreet Boys. (He and A.J. McLean lived in the same Orlando apartment complex when the band was forming.)
Of course, we'll only accept this revisionist history if it doesn't—in any way—interfere with Ryan starring opposite former girlfriend Rachel McAdams in "The Notebook." And, happily, it doesn't! At least according to James Montgomery's imagination.
