Exclusive I posted an article on August 19 - click here for a refresher - that included photos of Ryan Gosling on set with Eva Mendes, positing that they seemed so hot together, I’d totally be down if they hooked up. Mickey Mouse was listening. Full Story

Leaving Chateau Marmont last night. Yesterday I posted photos of Ryan leaving a 7 Eleven with one track pant leg hitched up wondering if it was by accident or on purpose. Click here if you missed it. The emails I received in response were amazing, especially from those who love him. Full Story

Did you see A History of Violence? How about Eastern Promises? Good things happen when David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen make movies together. This time it’s A Dangerous Method. The photo call happened in Venice earlier today. Cronenberg was joined by his cast. Because of the time difference, the premiere photos will likely hit the agencies in the next couple of hours. Full Story

Ryan Gosling was unable to join George Clooney et al in Venice at the premiere of The Ides of March. Gosling is currently in LA and was photographed today leaving a 7 Eleven looking a little sweaty which is good ...with one track pant leg hitched up which is... I mean of course Ryan Gosling, the street walking random instrument playing Ryan Gosling has one pant leg hitched up. Full Story

If Beyonce didn’t sh-t on everyone with her baby, my favourite part of last night’s MTV MVAs would have easily been Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. Did you see their pre-show interview? Please. He was talking to her about his pee pee. So f-cking cute. Look at his face looking at her face when he says “Johnson”. Full Story

Media screening for Drive at TIFF were held this week. One by one my colleagues have been emailing or telling me in person that the film is so f-cking good. Yes. Truth. From Cannes this was the Truth. Which is why I mentioned a few weeks ago, after seeing Crazy, Stupid, Love that Ryan Gosling didn’t do it for me in that movie because, frankly, he brings it so much harder in Drive. Full Story

Skarsgard vs Gosling: cute-off!

It’s kind of a signature move for Ryan Gosling. And, perhaps, to those who aren’t feeling him, part of his Try. To cute-pose with his little girl co-star Faith from Blue Valentine. During promotion, at every opportunity, he’d give us all the quivers with her in his arms. Now it’s Alexander Skarsgard’s turn. Full Story

Blake gives us Taylor

Blake Lively can be polarising. Some of you can’t deal. Others are all over it. Here’s something that we don’t have to fight over: Blake is working on Oliver Stone’s The Savages with Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch as the two leads. Blake brings paps. And when she’s not available to shoot, they’ll shoot everyone else. Full Story

Ryan Gosling is Peace

He holds babies, he hugs dogs, he plays obscure instruments walking down the street, he loves Disney, and he’s good to his mother. Those of you who get hard for Ryan Gosling are about to get even harder. And those of you who eyeroll at what you think is his Try, well, you might have something else to add to the list. Full Story

Could you see it?

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling... could you see it? They were photographed together last night on the set of The Place Beyond The Pines. Am assuming she plays his girlfriend. And? Is it working for you? When it comes to Eva, who brings a palpable sexuality to almost everything, I could totally see it, because he’d have to be dead inside not to feel something. Full Story
