La La Land tells the story of Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
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.”
Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe are all smiles as they sit together while making an appearance on Italian TV show Che Tempo Che Fa to promote their latest film The Nice Guys on Sunday (May 22) in Milan, Italy.
That same weekend, the 35-year-old actor, 52, suited up to premiere the flick at the Space Cinema Moderno in Rome.

The guys appeared on The Graham Norton Show this week and Ryan recounted the horrifying story of a Turkish massage he once received.
“I had a horrible experience having a Turkish massage, where this guy’s idea of a massage was to like take one leg and the other arm and try to connect it behind my back,” Ryan said.
“His belly went into my mouth,” he added. “You know when you get something weird in your mouth and if you’re eating something, your brain sends your tongue to figure out what it is? It’s not a conscious thought. It’s just like, is that a bone? Figure that out! The tongue goes in to figure it out. My tongue was like, ‘What is that? It’s a hairy belly!’”
