Ryan Gosling is the cutie that captured our hearts as Noah in The Notebook. His shy but romantic demeanor was a theme in that movie and is often noted in a majority of his films. Occasionally, Ryan attempts to diversify his acting in to other genres (as seen in the recent film Drive), however he is better known for his shy and distant characters in thought-provoking or romantic films.
Ryan has been linked to a few of his costars, including Sandra Bullock (Murder By Numbers) and Rachel McAdams (The Notebook). Currently, he is not romantically involved with anyone.
What many women find attractive about Ryan is his understated sexiness and guy next door demeanor. He has never been assertive about his sex symbol status, but instead humble which has made him even sexier. With his blonde hair, blue eyes, and lean physique, he's a unique gem in Hollywood where the focus tends to be on the opposite.
Did I also mention that Ryan is buff, as demonstrated in the movie Crazy Stupid Love? What more could a girl ask for than this trifecta of perfection in a man with good looks, charm, and a great body?!
