Ryan Gosling Thinks America Needs a Female President

Ryan Gosling has never looked dreamier than on the new cover of ES magazine.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being objectified: “It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick. I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory; a hunt.”

On his hopes of a female president some day: “I think it [America] needs a woman’s touch…I’ve always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better.”

On why he loves comedy: “What’s nice with comedy is that you know it’s working if it’s funny. With drama you can watch people in the wings [of a theatre] and you don’t know if they are suffering [with you] through your movie or they are just deeply bored. But yeah the externalisation was a relief.”
