Ryan Gosling Fact #3429831: LOVES Knitting

By Kelly Conaboy / January 15, 2013 - 10:20 am

I bet you think you know just about everything there is to know about Ryan Gosling. “I know he has a sweet bod, I know he acts in movies, I know he loves Disney Land, and what else? I know he has a mom, and I know he is perfect for me.” That’s you. “I know everything about the guy. OH ALSO the thing about being a Mouseketeer.” You again. But do you know how he would design his “perfect day”? Going to Disney Land with Eva Mendes and then saving someone’s life before having a wonderful dinner and retiring to what you can only imagine is a beautiful home with some sort of very nice view, you guess? WRONG! HE WOULD SPEND IT KNITTING WITH OLD WOMEN! From Celebitchy:

Ryan Gosling may be a major film star, but his perfect day involves something entirely un-glamorous — yarn and knitting needles.

“I did this scene in ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life,” Ryan told GQ Australia’s February/March 2013 issue.

In fact, it wasn’t just relaxing. The box office hunk said it was perfect!

“If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it,” he said. “And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf.”

UGH YOU ARE SO CHARMING EVEN WHEN YOU ARE LYING ABOUT WHAT YOUR PERFECT DAY WOULD BE! “Eva, no Disney Land for us today. I’m going to treat myself. Please call every old woman you know and get me knitting things.” “What?” “It’s going to be my perfect day!” “What?” Oh, Ryan. Your perfect day sounds terrible, but you know that we will all live it with you every single day of our lives if you would just finally get up the courage and ask. We love you. Text us!
