Ryan Gosling Is Totally Overrated (PS: Happy Birthday)
I’ve seen The Notebook. I’ve experienced the charms of Ryan Gosling in a soaked-through shirt. I’ve witnessed this iconic moment at the MTV Movie Awards 100 times. I know he’s pro-women and pro-dogs who look like muppets and pro-whatever other cause is trendy this week. Sure, his face ain’t that bad and he seems like he’d totally be down for some post-sex spooning. But, hey girl, guess what? I’m just not that into it.
Let’s face facts and admit that Ryan Gosling is overrated. Whatever you think you know about him, however you believe him to be in real life…you’re probably wrong.
Who started the myth of RyGos anyway? I’m not trying to blatantly hate on the guy, for all I know he could be a pleasant individual. I’m saying there’s no way he’s as perfect as the female population has painted him to be. One day he was the
gay kid from Remember the Titans and the next he was the skinny jeans-clad manifestation of everything you’ve ever wanted in a man. How did we get from Point A to Point B? Any why Ryan Gosling?
Part of me wishes he’d somehow hookup with Taylor Swift, then we’d get the real story. How great would it be to know he’s a sh*tty tipper or that once, when he was in third grade, he got really mad kicked his mom or that he doesn’t always text back right away? Taylor, girl, get in there and do some recon for us! If anyone can turn the perfect man into a ball of dickish behavior and commitment issues, it’s you!
If you think I’m completely off base here, please — please — leave me some evidence that Ryan Gosling is truly worthy of the pedestal he’s been placed on. It’s his birthday, so I’d kinda like to give him the benefit of the doubt. It’s just really hard to believe the hype.
