George Clooney & Ryan Gosling
Ever the jokester, George Clooney recently revealed that actor and ‘Ides of March’ co-star Ryan Gosling looked to Clooney for help in attaining People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man of the Year’ award, of which Clooney is a two-time victor of.
The Huffington Post reports that at a screening of his upcoming film ‘The Descendents,’ of which Clooney is already gathering Oscar buzz for, he quipped that "He [Gosling] really wants it," referring to the ‘Sexiest’ title.
Gosling was honored to work with Clooney on ‘The Ides of March,’ stating profoundly that working with Clooney was “"like watching a unicorn being born every day,” at the Toronto Film Festival.
Unfortunately, the training didn’t exactly pay off, and this year’s title went to Hollywood hunk Bradley Cooper. Many were outraged with the decision, feeling it should have actually been handed to Ryan Gosling.
One blogger had an oddly specific list of 63 reasons why Cooper shouldn’t have been named Sexiest. Check it out here, you’ll be sure to thank us.
