It’s Ryan Gosling‘s birthday — and we can’t believe he sang his way into our hearts on the Mickey Mouse Club 20 years ago. We fell in love with him in The Notebook, swooned over his good looks in Crazy, Stupid, Love, and saw his serious side in The Ides of March. What does he have to look forward to this year? Gosling’s directorial and writing debut, How To Catch A Monster, is out in 2014 and features a solid roster of stars. Let’s all celebrate the actor’s big day by admiring a photo of Gosling and his toned abdominal muscles. Happy birthday, Ryan!
When Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the men behind the original Superman, first created Clark Kent and his alter ego in the early 1930s, Kent was nothing more than a geek in glasses. But recently, Kent’s trademark look has been getting some respect, with hunky stars like Justin Timberlake, Usher, Johnny Depp, Josh Duhamel, and more taking a break from their usual super man looks to don the retro eyewear, sparking a craze that we have yet to see the end of. So in honor of the latest Superman film, Man of Steel (starring Amy Adams and Henry Cavill, in theaters today) have a glance at some hunky stars in glasses, proving—like Kent himself—you should never judge a book by its cover.

Swoon! Ryan Gosling Wears Velvet for The Place Beyond the Pines Premiere, and All the Week’s PartiesMar 29, 2013 @ 1:20 pm
Ryan Gosling stepped out last night in a teal velvet suit by Gucci—which, we might add, matches his eyes quite nicely—for the New York premiere of his latest film, The Place Beyond the Pines. Gosling plays a bad boy in the movie, which also stars his real-life girlfriend Eva Mendes (in Prada) and Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper. For his role as stunt motorcyclist Luke, Gosling even designed his own tattoos. Is there anything he can’t do? The movie opens today in New York and Los Angeles.

Grammy-winning British songstress Estelle earned fame and accolades back in 2008 with her catchy hit song, “American Boy,” which featured a verse from Kanye West. So when we saw her last night at Russell Simmons’s Diamond Empowerment Fund GOOD Awards in New York, we had to know: Who’s her favorite American boy now? “Oh, that’s so hard to choose! There’s a few of them,” the singer (in a Manish Arora dress) told InStyle.com. “You know what, I was watching Lord of the Rings the other day, and I always like Elijah Wood’s eyes. It’s a whole thing. So Elijah Wood would be number one.” Any runners-up? “Ryan Gosling would be two,” she said (no worries that he’s Canadian). “He’s amazing. And then Jaime Foxx. The older he gets the better he gets!” That’s quite the eclectic mix!

It’s been a long wait, but it’s now over! Ryan Gosling returns to the big screen today in 1950s-Los Angeles set Gangster Squad, alongside repeat co-star Emma Stone. The two originally appeared together as a couple of lovebirds in 2011′s Crazy Stupid Love, and there’s no doubt that these new roles are going to be vastly different from those. Gosling plays a cop-turned-informant who is bent on sending L.A.’s biggest mob leader to jail for life, no matter what it takes. And Stone plays the mob leader’s muse, who Gosling seduces to try to get closer to the criminal. It’s all so exciting! Click here to find out where the movie is playing near you!

The sexy stars of Gangster Squad celebrated the film at the Los Angeles premiere last night in well-suited glory, an homage to the movie’s 1950s L.A. setting. Josh Brolin chose a burgundy suit by Ermenegildo Zegna, Ryan Gosling (who—awww!—brought his mother as his date) picked a burnt three-piece from Gucci, and Anthony Mackie wore a checked slate gray look. So, who looked most dapper? Tell us by voting in the poll below!
