Ryan Gosling is just having an awful couple of days. First the actor got all embarrassed about breaking up that street fight in New York, even though we all thought it was great. Now he tells E! News that fans mistake him for fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds or even Paul Bettany, and then get pissy when they find out it’s him. (Clearly, these people are stupid.)
He runs Ben Lyons – who’s kind of being a dick re: his gym clothes, not gonna lie — through how his interactions with fans in New York usually go:
“‘Oh can I get my picture with you?’ And you’re like, sure, and they’re like, ‘I thought you were more muscley.’ No… ‘Have you gotten, like, more unattractive for a role?’ No. Just the role of my life.
“Sometimes they’ll take a picture with me and then they’ll look at it, and I’ll see their faces fall and they realize when they look at the picture, that’s not Ryan Reynolds.”
We obviously need to hit the streets of NYC and find Ryan for a much-needed self-esteem boost. Because a) we would never call him unattractive, and b) we wouldn’t confuse him with Paul Bettany. And whoever would give Ryan this face shouldn’t be let near any star.
Aww, buck up, kiddo!
