Ryan Gosling has something. There's something about him, and it's working. He seems to have that "it" factor and because of it, he's going to last.
And it's strange. I've adored Ryan Gosling since I first saw him in The Notebook, much like thousands of other females. Maybe we all fell in love with him because of his character in that movie. We built him up to be this sweetheart in our minds, and so it stuck with him. But with recent movies such as Drive and Ides of March, he isn't exactly that person all of the time. And yet we're still seeing his movies in droves.
My friend Hannah and I have complete opposites tastes when it comes to men. She likes the punky types, and I prefer goody-two shoes. She likes piercings, I like a nice haircut. While she melts over musicians with tattoos, I get giddy over guys that my parents would be proud of. Even though we are opposites in this area, we are equally as smitten with Ryan Gosling. He has something going on that no one can resist. Not even my fourteen-year-old sister. (Gosling is thirty.)
So what is it? His charm? That smile? The carefree attitude? The abs? The world may never know, but I think it's safe to say that we'll all keep loving him.
