Ryan Gosling and Evan Rachel Wood took a time-out from the set of The Ides of March to stop by The Cincinnati Zoo yesterday. The costars got close with some animal friends, including an Asian elephant, during their visit to the park. Ryan fed a hippo, pet a sloth and a porcupine, and crouched down to cozy up with a supersmall penguin — he also gazed into the eyes of one very lucky okapi! The actor enjoyed a day off from work on the George Clooney-directed project, which has been shooting in Ohio since last week. Ryan, who apparently also took Olivia Wilde on a recent date to a local aquarium, chose to go to the zoo instead of attending the Oscars on Sunday night. His Blue Valentine leading lady, Michelle Williams, was nominated for best actress, though she didn't walk away with the little gold man. She still fit in some PDA with her best friend Busy Philipps, while Ryan shared his own picture-perfect kisses with his new four- and two-legged friends.
