First Rachel McAdams told Elle
that her boyfriend influenced her film choices – and now Ryan Gosling
has returned the compliment.
"She's kind. She doesn't need any help from me. She's inspired me to do so much as well," Gosling, 26, said Sunday when asked about McAdams's comments at a junket for his new thriller Fracture.
McAdams, 30, told the magazine's April issue that her beau – and costar in 2004's The Notebook
– "never does the same thing twice. He's very brave."
But Gosling, a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Half Nelson,
says McAdams has good judgment in her own right: "She's the most discerning person I've ever met. She'll read a script 100 times. She's relentless."
And she's not bad looking, either: Asked to comment on McAdams's cover shot for the magazine, Gosling was momentarily tongue-tied.
"Oh ... yeah ..." he said. "She looks stunning! Absolutely – yeah!"
