Ryan Gosling: Mr. Hot Shots

The Ides of March actor had a busy year – being simply irresistible

TAKE NOTES, GENTLEMEN

Although we're technically marking The Notebook's milestone, we're really celebrating our own anniversary with Ryan Gosling, a love affair that began when the rom-com hit theaters 10 years ago on June 25, 2004. Starring opposite Rachel McAdams, he cemented his heartthrob status and reminded us why rainy days aren't so bad, after all. Oh, Ryan, you said it best: "It wasn't over. It still isn't over." Also, if you're a bird, we are all birds.
