Emma Stone, 23, has been busy. Last year's The Help, which won Octavia Spencer an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and Crazy, Stupid Love, which featured steamy scenes between Stone and her costar Ryan Gosling, might have launched the redhead (ahem, natural blonde) into "serious acting" territory beyond her Superbad, The House Bunny and Easy A roots, but now she's about to embark upon the superhero genre with The Amazing Spider-Man, in which she plays the first love interest of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy.
Ranking right up there with the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle and the Loch Ness Monster is the first global head-scratcher of the year: Where in the world was Ryan Gosling at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards? Though buddy and Globe winner George Clooney tried to make excuses backstage for his The Ides of March costar's absence, the well-intentioned (?) actor and director ended up raising more questions than he put to rest.
Nominated for two Golden Globes this year, for 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' and 'The Ides of March,' Ryan Gosling vied for an Oscar last year for 'Blue Valentine'
So far, 2011 is turning out to be a big year for Ryan Gosling. He has already starred in one of the summer's big romantic comedies, Crazy, Stupid, Love; he made headlines for arbitrating during a Manhattan street fight, which was fortuitously captured on camera phone; he has the starring role in George Clooney's presidential thriller, The Ides of March, which opened the Toronto Film Festival; and now, Drive, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, is hitting theaters, accompanied by some stellar reviews of Gosling's understated performance.
Crazy, Stupid, Love couldn’t be a more perfect title for this perfectly cast romantic comedy. Quite simply, the premise is about intertwining relationships between people who do crazy and stupid things for love.
