George & Eva, George & Ryan
Check it - Eva Mendes was photographed leaving her office with Ryan Gosling’s dog George the other day. She took him to work! Ryan is in Thailand. He’s obviously left G in the care of his lady. Just like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. And as I said in that case...
It must be love.
Love enough for her to go and visit him overseas? Not yet...but he’s there for months. It’ll happen.
I’ve received a few emails recently asking why Ryan Gosling wasn’t at the Golden Globes even though he’d been nominated. As noted then, he’s in Thailand working on a film with Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of Drive. A ridiculous report has just surfaced about George Clooney being pissed at Ryan supposedly because he couldn’t make it to the awards show. Something about disrespecting him. And that everyone knows that any actor can get out of work to attend if he’s nominated.
Look, I’m all for sh-tting on Ryan Gosling for the pseudo uber hipster instrument playing, the fake Brooklyn accent, and all the other TRY examples we profiled last year. But this...this is absurd.
Only God Forgives is being made for less than $5 million, an independent film. And you want your actor to lose at least two days in travel, never mind rest, so that he can go to a dinner party where he won’t win? Or do you have him stay there, acclimate to the environment, (nobody shows up in Thailand of all places, drops their bags, and starts shooting), begin rehearsals, preparing for the work, so that when you roll, you waste as little time as possible so as to better use your dinky ass budget?
You know me. I’m all for two bitches being mad at each other. Love it. More of it. Please. But it has to be believable. It has to be sensible. It has to be more creative! George Clooney would never hold it against Ryan Gosling for staying in Thailand to work on his little film with an even littler bank account. NEVER.
He may however get mad at Ryan Gosling for bringing Elisabetta Canalis to a party. This hasn’t happened but I would believe that more than I believe this.
