When I crush on someone, I crush hard. And when I crush hard, my brain is muddled I can’t get a grip of myself. And when that happens, I don’t get enough sleep! And when I don’t get enough sleep, you know what happens. $(_)#*)#*_$*(*)#)+q@!@!++()(
Yesterday was one of the sleepiest of me I can ever remember, in a very long time. It’s a rarity of occasions because it hasn’t happened to me in ages. I mean I do have sleepless nights but I usually am able to get a short nap of an hour or 2 in between (even if that is already enough to drain my day energy away), but yesterday?! It was terrible, I had deadlines to meet, reports to read, documents to vet, and I forcefully did everything looking like a dead zombie. Just because of a crushing love obsession I’m having with an already well known and acknowledged Sexiest Man alive Ryan Gosling. Oh yeah.
I KNOW. It’s utter ridiculous that I’ve only come to find him THIS HOT like now. This man has been the epitome of sexiness since forever (OK maybe not, but he has been for quite some time as I’ve heard), the dream fantasy of every girl out there, most if not all, and the perfectest male celeb to just ogle-swoon at by the female species. I must have been mad, because I remember having not liked him in The Notebook (didn’t even think he was hot in it, travesty huh?), and had totally brushed him aside as actor trying to be but not quite up to mark.
Then it all started a month or 2 back, when sis kept raving to me about how hot and good he was in Drive (not seen it yet, but DL-ing and will soon YAY!), which I didn’t bother to check up until a week ago. It began with me searching for JenLaw videos, which led me to Emma Stone stuff, which then led me to a Crazy Stupid Love clip. Crazy Stupid Love, that was it.
I watched the movie, predictable and corny pretty much? But Ryan Gosling oh RYAN baby, you know I’m trying to contain my perviness right now right? I mean everything in the movie called for cheesiness overload, and while the cast were spot on with their characters, and while the message of going and trying hard for “the one” was being hammered on too much for our sake of happiness, it wasn’t exactly a “good quality” movie. But Ryan oh Ryan (here I go again, please bear with me), he was so sexydamnfinehot and so full brimmed with the needed playboy personality to kill that character, and he did so, effortlessly! I mean, who in the right mind would ever turn him down? I loved everything about his character, and his acting, perfection with the right blend of suave and warmth. No wonder everyone started to ship Emma with him after the movie, their chemistry was BLAZING sexy.
Well that led me to searching shippy videos and MVs (can’t believe I’m still doing this, I’m teenager no more :/), and then Gangster Squad.
TBH the movie wasn’t exactly up to par as I’d expected, even with Ryan and Emma. The overall cast did considerably well but the movie fell flat somewhere midway, with the reveal of the gangster squad executed not in a very exciting climatic way. It could have been like Ocean 11 but lacked excitement and grip. But I stood through till the end, admittedly partly because I wanted to see Ryan and Emma’s character ride their way into their happy ever ending sunset.
I admit that came after Crazy because I became shippy all of a sudden. They’re dating other people and I’m happy for them, but a shipper’s heart doesn’t come all of a sudden. I just love it when co-stars hang out so comfy around each other, and when they’re not afraid to show others the affection and chemistry they have with each other, case in point: –
And this the most comfy adorable I’ve seen of them!
OK back to Ryan. I dunno, there’s just something in him that I see now that I hadn’t seen before, or I’d failed to notice back then. Perhaps I’d grown older, I start to see why people are mad crazy head over heels with this man. He has a very grit-like kinda wit and warmth behind that cool-ish face of his, he’s not too playful and yet he maintains a certain level approachability. I think he can sound a bit lazy or douchy in interviews sometimes, and may appear to be uninterested in some, but then we never know what celebs they are really like in the RL world (maybe except for JenLaw hehe).
His acting is more grounded than effervescent, maybe not stellar or outwardly explosive or intense as some, but most of the time he’s got a grip and sense of understanding of what he wants to convey. I’ve only seen 4 movies out of his long list of credentials, maybe it’ll be easier to give a judgment then.
Maybe because he’s hot, maybe because he’s aware that he is hot, maybe he doesn’t care that I care, but when I crush, I crush hard.
One of my fav recent interviews of his to end my crush meter ramblings, – dish towel RYAN! <3333
Until my next!
