6 Ryan Gosling Movies Girls Would Love to Watch
Even though the Sexiest Man Alive title still eludes him, Ryan Gosling has plenty of reasons to be cheerful about. One thing is for sure, his worldwide fans won’t see him down for a bit. And why not? He walks with an unmatched style, and has delivered such great performances in a number of movies. His movies and roles, both have touched millions of hearts worldwide. Whether it’s the thriller ‘Drive’ last year or the touching ‘Lars And The Real Girl’ in 2007, Gosling has shown us his true potential. Here are the top 6 Ryan Gosling movies that girls love to watch.
1. The Believer
Gosling plays an orthodox Jew-turned-neo-Nazi, Danny Balint in this critically acclaimed movie. The movie in itself was a thought provoking one and Gosling added to its charm by acting his part brilliantly. The movie is loosely based on the true story of Daniel Burros, played by Gosling. We must say, he delivers what is expected and much more in this fiery performance.
2. The Notebook
This tearjerker should be on the must watch list of every girl. Adapted from Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name, 'The Notebook' actually portrays that love can overcome time, age and social barriers and in this case even the World War II. Gosling plays the charming and independent young man Noah Calhoun who waits for his love for years, not knowing where she is. The movie unfolds beautifully with an unnerving end.
3. Half Nelson
In 'Half Nelson', Gosling plays the role of a troubled teacher Dan Dunne for which he earned an Academy Award nomination too. Dan Dunne is a teacher who is idealistic, but he has one problem: drug addiction. Gosling's portrayal of this complex man turned heads, literally in Hollywood.
4. Lars And The Real Girl
Gosling here plays Lars, the socially awkward guy who also happens to be dysfunctional. To bring ease to this, he buys a sex doll online and treats her as his real girlfriend. In the small town where he lives, everyone slowly and steadily begins accepting Lars's reality. Playing a troubled man seems to be a niche for Gosling, but do we care as long as he brings flawlessness into his performances?
5. Blue Valentine
His role as Dean Pereira, who wants to be the caring husband and father, won him a Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor. His seamlessly natural and quiet performance won praise from the critics too.
6. Crazy, Stupid, Love
Ryan Gosling plays a smooth bachelor for whom charming ladies is no big deal. He happens to meet Cal Weaver a middle-aged husband whose wife has asked him for divorce. It's a romantic comedy where Palmer helps Weaver to get his depressed life back on track. Gosling himself has said that to play the suave, confident man. He actually read all men's magazines and a novel to help him act out the part accordingly. That's what we call some dedication, eh?
