Ryan Gosling Heats Up a Cold Winter Monday With a Steamy New York Mag Cover

Ryan Gosling gives a serious stare on the cover of New York Magazine this week. He keeps the hotness coming in a spread shot by Art Streiber, in which he plays the ukulele like his romantic character in Blue Valentine. Ryan's been promoting the film, in theaters Dec. 31, with his costar Michelle Williams, though he's currently sharing the screen with Kirsten Dunst in the recently released All Good Things. Both of his leading ladies talked to the magazine about starring with Ryan, and he opened up about his work, Hollywood standards, and more:


  • On Blue Valentine: “The film is like that Supremes song ‘Where Did Our Love Go.’ It’s a mystery and you in the audience are the detective because the characters in the movie are too close to it — they’re not able to see what went wrong, what happened. They still love each other, but they’re not in love: Why?”
  • On staying in the moment: “I know it sounds dramatic, but every movie I make is the first and last. It’s important for me to think that the things you’ve made, they’re in the past. It’s what you’re making now that matters.”
  • On Hollywood standards: “Some of us are tired of all the sissies in this town, the ones who go along, flow with the flow, line up where they’re told to line up at. The studios want you to make the same movie over and over again — if that’s the movie they liked, that’s the movie you should keep making.”
  • Michelle Williams on working with Ryan: “You’ve got to fight dirty, you’ve got to bite his ear, because if I tried to match his energy and speed, I would never win. With all that capacity, Ryan could be a steamroller. I know guys like that, and they take up all the air. I thought, I’m timid and I’m not going to be able to breathe. But within minutes I knew how wrong I had been. He’s incredibly sensitive and generous and will do anything to help you.”
  • Kirsten Dunst on Ryan: “Ryan is kind and adorable, yet also really dark and weird and manipulative. Everything you’d want in an actor.”
