On exes: Ryan is not Brad
Brad Pitt, who is currently selling Moneyball, told Parade Magazine that life with Jennifer Aniston was not interesting and pathetic. Ryan Gosling is also selling a movie (Drive opens today - are you going?) and talking about his exes. His comments though are decidedly sweeter. And very, very MiniVan Majority friendly.
In an interview with The Times, Ryan was asked about his love life, whether or not he’s dating. This was his response.
"There's interest but I'm in a committed relationship with film. I'm giving as much to it as a marriage. I had two of the greatest girlfriends of all time. I haven't met anybody who could top them. Showbusiness is the bad guy. When both people are in showbusiness it's too much showbusiness. It takes all of the light, so nothing else can grow.”
Really, really sweet, right?
Unfortunately the next part is a little extra for me. Ryan on his future plans for a family:
"I'd like to be making babies but I'm not, so I'm making movies. When someone comes along I don't think I'll be able to do both and I'm fine with that. I'll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen."
He already had us at the “Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams were the best and I have a high standard” reference. Going hardcore for the Mom Vote, to me, was totally gratuitous. Like the class goody goody who doesn’t know when to stop.
Anyway, all this, this whole article, was just an excuse to post old photos. So here they are - two of the greatest girlfriends of all time, and Ryan Gosling.
Go see Drive tonight. It’s an incredible movie.
