It's been one hit after another for Ryan Gosling. He put out three movies in less than six months and shot three more. Ryan showed off his comedic side, and his six-pack abs, in last Summer's Crazy, Stupid, Love. In the Fall, he shifted back into dramatic roles with the release of Drive and The Ides of March. Meanwhile, during his hectic promotional schedule he also filmed Lawless, Gangster Squad, and The Place Beyond the Pines.
While filming Pines, Ryan also made a personal connection with costar Eva Mendes. Not long after wrapping on the film the pair were spotted on a romantic Disneyland date, and in December, strolling through Paris hand-in-hand. Eva and Ryan didn't comment on their relationship status but they did collaborate on a Funny or Die skit, "Drunk History of Christmas."
Award season came and went, though Ryan was a no-show at most of the ceremonies. Instead of suiting up on the red carpet to celebrate his Hollywood success, he jetted to Thailand to shoot Only God Forgives with his Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn.
