Last November, quite a few people were very upset to learn that Channing Tatum was named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine when they thought it should’ve been Ryan Gosling to win the honor … so People is trying to appease those folks with a new cover that proclaims Ryan as the Most Wanted Man. Of course the title is a nod to Gosling’s new film Gangster Squad, opening soon in theaters, but it’s also the damned truth … Ryan is, most definitely, in high demand right now. Click below to see Ryan on the cover of People and read a bit from the coverstory feature article.
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. “When you’re with him you feel different. He has a magnetic quality – larger than life.” And yes, he knows how to work his quirks – everything from self-designed tattoos to an enduring Disneyland fascination. “Women love him because he’s just kooky,” says the insider. “He’s definitely in touch with his childlike side.”
At the Hollywood premiere of Gangster Squad this week, Ryan was asked about his Most Wanted Man title and he cheekily responded “That means it’s over pretty soon“. Hahahaha … yes, that’s a cute answer but No, Ryan, you are incorrect. Gosling enjoyed a very successful 2012 and I suspect he’ll enjoy a very successful 2013. He has quite a few movies on the horizon and, well, with a mug like his, he is SURE to be in very high demand for a very long time to come.
