Ryan Gosling

Hey, girl. Of course you know who Ryan Gosling is. He's the romantic guy from The Notebook. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Half Nelson. And we love it when he's paired with Emma Stone. Did you know he was a musician, too? He toured with his band Dead Man's Bones in 2009.

What is Ryan Gosling's favorite book from childhood?

According to a January 2013 issue of People magazine, Ryan's favorite book as a child was The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

One of my favorites, too!
