Ryan brought his sister as his date and stole the show right away. The actor caused a stir on social media when he brought along a blond beauty as his date to the Oscars on Sunday and not his longtime partner, the gorgeous Eva Mendes. Twitter exploded with speculations about the mysterious blonde before it was revealed that Ryan, like many other celebrities, had opted to bring a family member to the big night.
Ryan was yet again the center of things when La La Land was announced by mistake. Yes, he acted just like James Bond, the character who is famous for not giving away his reactions on screen. The actor was on stage with his co-stars and the filmmakers as they accepted the top gong of the evening, before it became apparent that the wrong movie had been read out by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.
The mix-up saw the musical’s producers finishing off their acceptance speeches abruptly before La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz revealed the mistake, prompting a brief moment of chaos on-stage.
In the midst of the confuwwsion, Ryan held his hand up to his face in an attempt to hide his amused giggle.
Gosling was caught sniggering at the absurdity of the mess-up, and it quickly went viral. It’s this reaction that has caused the odds of him becoming Daniel Craig’s successor as the next Bond to increase from 14/1 to 10/1.
Rupert Adams, a spokesman for William Hill, said: “Ryan Gosling showed an admirable sense of humour and his composure was worthy of Mr Bond - the coolest cucumber of the lot.”
