A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Crazy Stupid Love (I know, I know, we're a little late to the party). In one scene, Ryan Gosling seduces Emma Stone by taking his shirt off.
I turned to my wife to see her reaction. She was beet red and had her jaw wide open. When I asked if she enjoyed the movie, she uttered, "Ryan Gosling really was … fit looking."
(I worked out twice as hard the subsequent day, by the way.)
The fact is, Ryan got in amazing shape for the film. He has become part of a long list of leading men who have exercised and dieted to make their on-screen performance more impactful.

Rihanna had a prime seat after making a late arrival at a party for L.A. Clippers star Chris Paul and his new shoe line: She grabbed Kobe Bryant's table!
The R&B star, who was recently spotted at a Clippers game, arrived just as Bryant was leaving the bash, which was held at Greystone Manor in Los Angeles. But she and her girlfriends were there in time to enjoy several tunes before the club closed.
As for the newly-single Bryant, he headed to the party after flying back to town from Salt Lake City, where his team, the Lakers, played the Utah Jazz. And once inside, he stuck to his table – secluded behind the deejay booth and across the room from Paul.
But he didn't go unnoticed: At one point, Jamie Foxx jumped in the deejay booth, grabbed the mic and teased Bryant, saying, "Isn't this a Clipper party?"

She has appeared in her brother Jamie Foxx's "Blame It" music video, hit the stage at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards in front of 26 million viewers and "battle danced" with celeb pals such as Denzel Washington and Chris Brown.
But DeOndra Dixon's latest turn in the spotlight makes her brother especially proud: The outgoing 27-year-old is the 2011 Ambassador for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation.
"She's a superstar now," Foxx, 43, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview in this week's issue.
"One thing people may not understand is that the love a person with special needs gives you is unfiltered," he says of their strong sibling bond.

Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to make yet another dream come true.
During an interview with Kirstie Alley, set to air Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the host brought up a May 2009 PEOPLE interview in which Alley revealed her affinity for actor Jamie Foxx.
"I haven't been having sex," Alley, 59, said at the time – as she also opened up about falling off the weight-loss wagon and ballooning to 228 lbs. "I want a booty call with Jamie Foxx. For real," she said. "I've always had a bit of a thing for him."
Winfrey reminded the Fat Actress star of the quotes and inquired if she really would love "a booty call from Jamie." Replies Alley: "You know, me and about 3 million other women in the United States."

And to think, it was just a joke.
After dissing Miley Cyrus on his Foxxhole Sirius radio show last weekend, a contrite Jamie Foxx appeared on Tuesday's Tonight Show and told Jay Leno – and Miley and the millions of those watching – "I so apologize … and this is sincere. I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don't mean any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a little bit too far."
The Ray Best Actor Oscar winner, 41, had previously advised the Hannah Montana star, 16, to "get like Britney Spears and do some heroin. Do like Lindsay Lohan and start seeing a lesbian and get some crack in your pipe. Catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat."
