Online Exclusive – Ryan Gosling's Oscar-Worthy Abs

2 min read


“And the Oscars goes to… (insert actor/actress’ name here).” Let’s face it, these days sometimes it’s not the acting that gets a performer noticed: it’s the body, and Ryan Goslings Abs are making him millions. It’s rare that you find an actor that can actually act and also has a body that single handily deserves an Oscar.

If you saw “Crazy Stupid Love,” the fantastic romantic comedy released this past summer, you know that it wasn’t just the superb acting or star studded cast that caused millions to go see it, but might have also been the fact that half of the movie featured Ryan Gosling beautifully tailored body in a beautifully tailored suit that in the best way (why did three piece suits ever go out of style guys?). Add to that the fact that the other half of the movie featured Ryan Gosling shedding his suit to unveil those mouthwatering eight pack abs on a wide screen. It was hot. And it made the price of a movie ticket well worth it.

If you go to Google and type in “Ryan Gosling workout” countless sites pop up, some including videos and workout plans that he supposedly did in order to get those gorgeous abs. If you type in “Ryan Gosling Abs” you get a plethora of articles on whether or not they are in fact real or if they were photoshopped. Have faith ladies and gentlemen: they are 100% real, even if Gosling himself did joke in an Access Hollywood interview that they are photoshopped, saying, “James Cameron Ab-atared them in.” All I can say is thank you Ryan Gosling, first for that amazing kiss in “The Notebook” and now for your abs. Is anyone else yearning to see that glistening, flesh washboard get an Oscar nod? I know I am.
