Is Grey going blond?
While the names of countless Hollywood stars have been bound to the leading roles in the film adaptation of E L James's mega-selling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, recent rumors tie two towheaded, younger actors to the project: Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam.
Johnson, 23 – daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith – is a former model who turned heads in The Social Network and the short-lived sitcom Ben and Kate.

After taking over the Internet last week, Prince George stayed behind closed doors for the most part.
But this is a good thing – because if we were overloaded with royal baby news, we would have missed this adorable photo of Joe Manganiello and a seal, and that would have been a very bad thing.
Read on for more news about Drew Brees and other wonderfully random things that happened online.

Under unseasonably cloudy skies and dodging a few raindrops, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire kicked off the 66th Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday just hours before walking the red carpet for their blockbuster film The Great Gatsby, which opened the star-studded 12-day extravaganza of movies and parties on the French Riviera.
"Every time I go to Cannes it feels like I'm entering the helicopter scene in La Dolce Vita; it's an insane experience," said DiCaprio, who posed for photos on the fabled Croisette next to his Gatsby costars.
Emma Watson, who stars in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, premiering Thursday, was spotted among the early celebrity arrivals at Nice International Airport on Tuesday – along with Paris Hilton, Cannes jury member Nicole Kidman and British singer Florence Welch.

We can now add cows to Ryan Gosling's fan club!
In conjunction with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the actor penned a letter to the National Milk Producers Federation asking them to bring an end to a practice known as dehorning, in which cows' horns are removed by being burned off, gouged out or chopped off.
"There is absolutely no reason – and no excuse – for the cruel, unnecessary practice of dehorning to continue," Gosling, 32, writes, advocating for the breeding of naturally hornless cows. "Please do the right thing and take action today."

Hey girl, sometimes dreams do come true.
Last fall, officials at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin hoped to entice Ryan Gosling to attend a charity fundraiser by posting an open invitation in the form of the flirty "Hey Girl" Internet meme that riffs on his don't-you-wish-he-was-your-hipster-boyfriend reputation.
The day of the event, Gosling shocked organizers by turning up – with Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender, his costars in the untitled Terrence Malick film shooting in town.
Gosling happily mingled, took photos with a long line of excited parents and kids, and at one point, he "paid $50 for a $1 glow-in-the-dark cotton candy," says Anne Adams, executive director of the school's foundation. "He insisted on learning the sign for please and thank you so he could properly show his appreciation to the child. He deserves every one of those 'hey girls!' "

Devoted son, quirky leading man – and everyone's favorite fantasy boyfriend.
But how does Ryan Gosling stack up in his real-life romance with actress Eva Mendes?
The "hey girl" Internet obsession, 32, "is an incredibly sweet boyfriend," a Gosling source tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. He and Mendes, 37, "get along so well because she's not needy or smothering," says another insider. "They just work."
Mendes is hardly the only one to fall under Gosling's spell. The former Mouseketeer – who brought his mom, Donna, as his date to the Jan. 7 Gangster Squad premiere in L.A. – is "funny and charming," says the film's director, Ruben Fleischer.

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.
