“I got us a song. You know, like our song that will just be for you and me.” #RyanGosling.
No one says I love you like Ryan Gosling. He doesn’t even say it that much, it’s just there in his eyes, his rowing, his beard. We started tweeting Ryan Gosling love one-liners this morning and the retweets were enough to warrant what’s about to happen: our Top 5 Ryan Gosling = Heartthrob Moments. If you can’t indulge in Gosling guzzling on Valentine’s Day, when can you? Sit back, relax, suck on something heart shaped, and feel the love.
66 drafts and a manifesto. 12 years in the making. Blue Valentine warms your heart and then freezes it over.

From Lars and the Real Girl
Teddy bear resuscitation is the greatest act of love. Here, Ryan performs it effortlessly for the cute office girl, who is still willing to love him even though he’s in a relationship with a blow up doll called Bianca. He’s so affecting.
From The Notebook
“If you’re a bird, I’m a bird” doesn’t sound like the most romantic sentiment, but in spite of Rachel McAdam’s flapping arms, this is the best scene in the film. Boat kiss scene fans may disagree.
From Blue Valentine
He has to sing goofy in order to sing. Despite Michelle Williams’ flapping arms, Ryan’s serenade is full of old fashioned charm. They might break each other’s hearts later in the film, but this is the bit you remember. Listen to Ryan i-N Conversation with i-D about the film here.
The arm gesture, the slow motion, the fact that he stamps a man’s head in until his brain explodes seconds later, all work together to create this intense, throw-down romance. His strong silent love is hot.
From Crazy Stupid Love
He’s not only watched Dirty Dancing, he’s adept in the lift, and performs it in a house made of glass while it’s raining outside. Say no more.
