Ryan Gosling Fights to End Cow Dehorning

Originally posted 04/04/2013 12:00PM

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!' "

Ryan Gosling: How He Weaves His Magic Spell

Originally posted 01/09/2013 08:00AM

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.

Harley Pasternak Blogs: How Leading Actors Get Fit for Roles

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.

A dog paid a visit to the Austin, Texas, set of director Terrence Malick's new film, and all we could think was, That lucky bitch.

Leave it to Ryan Gosling to smile at a passing pooch and stir up all kinds of feelings: jealousy, spitefulness, despair.

The actor, along with costar Rooney Mara, is currently spending long days on set for the untitled picture, and seemed to relax momentarily on Wednesday when a crew member brought over the dog between takes.

Fifty Shades of Grey Author Weighs In on Ryan Gosling's (Reported) Casting

Originally posted 09/28/2012 02:55PM

Think Ryan Gosling is the perfect choice to play Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey? According to reports, so does author E L James's husband Niall Leonard – and the sexy actor may just be the frontrunner for the role.

So, what does author E L James think about Gosling's supposed casting?

"As usual, it's all been misreported," she recently told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show. "No, my husband has not spilled the beans."

Explains James: "What happened is that his local paper ... reported on my husband being the inspiration for Christian Grey," she tells Seacrest. "Underneath it, they put a picture of Ryan Gosling as well. So, that's how that [rumor] came about."

If the way to Ryan Gosling's heart is through his pet, then Eva Mendes is certainly doing something right.

The actress and her beau's beloved mutt were spotted happily strolling around Beverly Hills on Thursday, with George leading the way.

Mendes was first snapped on a solo stroll with the pooch in January, while Gosling was out of the country filming. But with the actor stepping out in L.A. earlier in the week, it seems she's now taken to walking George even when her boyfriend is around.
