may not have any children of his own, but the actor seemed eager to embrace his paternal instincts while filming The Place Beyond the Pines
, a crime drama about a motorcycle stunt rider.

In character with brand-new blond hair
and a batch of tattoos, Gosling is almost as adorable as his pint-sized costar.
The movie also stars Bradley Cooper
and Eva Mendes
