Ryan gosling and emma stone are they dating
Eventually I got this opportunity to work with him so I decided to jump at it. It was funny, because I was in before I knew about the role. You just strike up a friendship and maybe it’ll turn into something else at the end of the night or down the road. Show me a man who wouldn’t give it all up for Emma Stone and I’ll show you a liar. They’re sitting in a warehouse somewhere, I don’t know who that serves.
I didn’t really think of it as a conscious choice to do a comedy, although the prescription was looming there in my subconscious, but I really wanted to work with Steve. Were there times with this character that you felt like you were taking on your “Hey Girl” internet meme, playing the lothario? I said, “Okay, Steve Carell, I’m doing it.” Then I saw the part. Your wardrobe in the movie is very edgy and sophisticated. Your wardrobe seems pretty casual and chill now, it wasn’t like that in the movie. They’re there, fitted for me, not being worn by me.
One of the film’s funniest relationships is between despondent cuckold Cal (Steve Carell) and the benevolent pick-up artist Jacob (Ryan Gosling) who decides to give Cal a makeover and help him get his mojo back.
The movie is a rare outright comic performance from Gosling and he has wonderful chemistry with Carell. Eleven years, that’s the longest relationship I’ve ever had.
I wanted to play that guy, The Situation, from “Jersey Shore,” and I asked the directors and they said, “No, it’s not that kind of movie.” They wanted it to be more real. Now that I’m an actor and I have movies, press, I have more occasions to wear suits. You just did “Drive” and “The Ides of March” and you’re shooting “Gangster Squad” in September. I don’t know why, but I feel more creative, I want to play more characters.
This was a more gregarious character, get to actually do some physical stuff like slapping Steve Carell… It was the first time I worked with someone who was so good it was a problem. I watched him on “The Daily Show,” I watched all his movies. I actually don’t know who owns that line, I was trying to think of it the other day. These friendships would start first then maybe it would turn into something else. The idea that cheesy lines don’t work and bar banter is lame. That’s what’s fun about acting, to play people who are different than you. The whole thing really hinges on her character; my character has to give it all up for her and that has to make sense. During the roundtable interview with Gosling, we asked him about making the shift to comedy, his upcoming projects Is it possible for an alpha male to find one soulmate? They were telling us you play in a band and really know how to make those drinks. GOSLING: I don’t really know what they’re talking about. GOSLING: I do play in a band, but so do a lot of people. GOSLING: Yes, we’re creatively dating right now, you know? RYAN GOSLING: Those are two things I know nothing about. I’ve been getting the soulmate question a lot lately, I don’t really know. I made some drinks, but I learned how to make those drinks ’cause they asked me to. I went to my friend Eric, who owns a bar in downtown LA called Varnish, it’s sort of a sister bar to Milk & Honey. That in tandem with I just love Steve Carell, always wanted to work with Steve. It's not the first time Gosling has been joined by his glamorous older sister, an LA producer who helped produce Pharrell Williams' Grammy award-winning song Happy.Mandi, who Gosling once credited with helping him ‘think like a girl’, has appeared as her brother's date at numerous events over the past decade.
