Ryan Gosling Got Famous Because He "Looks A Bit Nuts"

| Filed under: Ryan Gosling


Most people know Ryan Gosling best as that hunky, swoon worthy guy in The Notebook. (Ladies! Don't act like it isn't the truth!)

But according to Ryan, the only reason he go that role to begin was because of his utter lack of sex appeal.

Ryan explained to British magazine Company that when he was first up for the role opposite Rachel McAdams, director Nick Cassavetes liked him because he thought Ryan "lacked conventional sex appeal."

Uh, yeah! He has an over abundance of it, DUH!

Regardless of what we say, seems Ryan is under the impression that it was his stunnilgy awful looks that got him the part that made his career. He explains:

"The director, Nick Cassavetes, called me to meet him at his house. When I got there, he was standing in his back yard, and he looked at me and said, 'I want you to play this role because you're not like the other young actors out there in Hollywood. You're not handsome, you're not cool, you're just a regular guy who looks a bit nuts.'"


He is so handsome, he is way cool and there is nothing regular about this guy! If being nutty means he's smart, personable and talented, than Hollywood could stand to have a few more nut-jobs running around.

    I agree, he isn't conventionally handsome, he's unique and has a different look than all the other Hollywood guys. His looks are beyond "conventional" and that's what makes a guy sizzling hot, IMO. He is - hands down - the most charming actor/celebrity/artist out there. It's no wonder why all his co-stars fall for him.

    Ryan Gosling DOES look a little nuts. That doesn't mean he doesn't pull it off, though. He's definitely handsome in a different way.

    I think what gives him such strong sex appeal is the fact that he doesn't look blandly handsome like alot of Hollywood actors. He doesn't look like anyone else. He has a unique face that isn't cookie cutter gorgeous. Even as handsome as he is, though, his personality and charisma make up half of his appeal. He is so effortlessly charming in interviews. And no matter the role, even as brilliant an actor as he is, there is always this charisma there that is a part of who he is. I'm not sure what it is, something about his voice, the way he walks, moves. He's just got IT. Whatever that quality is that you can't name or define that makes someone sexy, he's got it in spades.
