Ryan Gosling Covers 'GQ' January 2011

Ryan Gosling Covers 'GQ' January 2011

Ryan Gosling suits up in Ralph Lauren Black Label for the cover of GQ magazine’s January 2011 issue!

Here’s what the 30-year-old Blue Valentine and All Good Things actor had to share:

On working at a sandwich shop after The Notebook: “I’d never had a real job.” The problem with Hollywood, he goes on, is that nobody works. “They have meals. They go to Pilates. But it’s not enough. So they do drugs. If everybody had a pile of rocks in their backyard and spent every day moving them from one side of the yard to the other, it would be a much happier place.”

On being surprised by his success but knowing it could end: “Look, this is crazy. I don’t understand how I’m here, living this life, wearing this suit. I assume I’m going to pay for it someday.”

    I have a pile of rocks in my backyard that I move from one side to another, day after day, year after year. I attribute all of my happiness to that pile of rocks. You are such a moron Ryan Gosling.

  • Laurel

    @Lillianne, he’s saying that if the people of HW had something constructive to do with their time besides spending money, they’d be much more grounded people. That’s all.

  • oy

    Why are they pushing this boy/man on us? He doesn’t have the Hollywood “it” factor. He looks sad and confused on the cover as if I need to worry about him.

  • Lola

    Ryan my future husband! I like what he’s saying..he’s not hollywood and doesnt need to be all sexy in your face or showing off his goodies, he always always smolders onscreen..just ask any of his leading ladies.

  • blackrock

    i love ryan gosling, he’s so awesome and such a great actor. and i’d totally do him, obv

  • Etty
  • blackrock

    and his band is amazing

  • anna

    He looks hot in these photos

  • Amber

    This cover is embarrassing. Are his eyes really that far off? They don’t match up at all. Poor guy.

  • Dan

    @oy: who the fack is pushing anything to you? you’re the one that came to the site, clicked on his article and started talking sh!t about him. and what “it” factor are you talking about? he’s in one of the best movies of the year and he’ll probably get an Oscar nomination next year for his performance in Blue Valentine. So yeah, I guess that’s why they are “pushing” him to you. Ignorant a-hole.

  • Cammie

    Love Him!

  • Wow

    I used to think he was super sexy. I’m not sure why I’m not feeling it anymore lol

  • Laki

    Ryan,you speak wisely but you’re boinking Blake Lively.
    The queen of mumbling,also named Boobs Legsly.

  • Kirsten

    I still love him. My friend met him and she said he was so humble and chill.

  • Dexter’s girlfriend

    finally someone who speaks the truth…….
    I dont like the cover. the rest of the picutres are hottt

  • Nina

    Ryan Gosling is a brilliant actor, if any of you ever watched “Half Nelson” it really protrays his talent and he is not a half-a$$ actor who remembers lines and gets paid the big bucks. And not only is he an actor ladies, he is a musician, sheer brillance

  • Michael Freitag

    Yeah! Thank you GQ…

  • British Latin American

    Ryan was always one of the most talented and attractive of the Mickey Mouse Bunch, just like Kerry and J.C.

  • jb

    he’s so hot it makes me cry inside.

  • Danielle

    For someone who is so humble and who doesn’t like the Hollywood regime, he’s been everywhere lately. Hypocrite much. He’s obviously selling himself for fame and awards, sorry stans, as great as an actor he is, it doesn’t make him invincible to the game.

  • Anastasia

    These photos are weird. He doesn’t do anything for me anyway, I just thought the photos were weird.
    @Danielle: Of course he’s selling himself. Stans live in fantasy land.

  • Butter_Fly

    Don’t care for the cover but the other pics are hot!

  • Aitch

    Love it….but less clothing on him is called for.

  • evelyn

    As soon as any actor makes a comment about other celebs and how they need to be more grounded, people seem to jump on them and call them “self righteous” or “big headed” … But I dont see Ryan that way.

    I think he is a genuine guy that makes GREAT movie choices and manages to keep his personal life fairly quiet. Lets hope he keeps it that way!! :D

  • marie

    if there’s one thing I hate is fake humblness!

  • Lawrence

    Ryan’s been kinda of cocky in last few interviews, I don’t find it very attractive at times. Still, he’s a talented actor and a damn sexy one at that!.

  • Deedz

    Sweet Jesus.

  • boston61

    He was in this movie playing a skinhead. He has the weirdest shaped head with a big nasty mole growing on his scalp. It was really grossing me out. Nasty.

  • Lalalove


  • Jokergurl

    He seems pretty mellow, great actor too. Nice pics.

  • hmmm

    I liked Gosling when he was less well known but just as talented… he seemed more down to earth back then and happier. Now, he looks stuck-up and kinda sad, haven’t seen him genuinely smile in a while…


    he looks like a fugly douchebag

  • Bobby

    Enough with freakin’ black & white photos!! give us full color you morins!

  • Bobby

    I mean morons.

  • A.S.

    I like R.G for different reasons– he is talented and can act, TRIES to keep some privacy (he does have to promote his movies, it’s part of his job), and mostly he started in the bus at a young age and has not gotten into drugs and the party life such as many others like Brittany spears etc. etc. Well, at least as far as we know. And yeah I see what he is saying when people have a lot of money and nothing to do you could fall into drugs and partying. He is also very sexy and doesn’t cash in on his looks— He is very talented and it seems smart too.

  • bland and pretentious zzzzz

    this guy does absolutely nothing for me and seems very full of himself

  • NAO

    His eye is starting to bother me. I’ve been noticing it for awhile now. I wonder if something happened to him.

  • KIM

    I never found him attractive.

  • fardous

    i thing he is okay

  • used to like him…

    I don’t know… I used to love this actor, but now he’s starting to annoy me for some reason. I liked him up to the movie, Half Nelson… but he lost something… the innocent quality that he once had. Guess that’s natural though. Not fond of his voice either. But he is a wonderful actor.

  • JJ

    Dang, his face is unfortunate!
