Ryan Gosling at LAX

Posted on April 17, 2012

Oh, Ryan. You’ve really overplayed your hand this time.

Because we were content with the illusion that you were only just a tiny bit pretentious with your style choices, but looking at you in your artfully scuffed boots and completely pointless hoodie vest with the hood inexplicably covering only the back of your head (apparently the back of your head gets cold) and your pumped arms exposed leaves us with no choice but to conclude that you’re something of a twit, even if you are super-cute.

      Whatever, clothes. Be still my loins!

    • moppet

      Hmmm…no, I think I’m still okay with him. Hoodie vest and all. 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      You are totally right but I STILL give him a pass. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

      I still would. 

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Yes, he is a total hipster.

      Now hide from his fangirls, they’re even more vicious than Twihards.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.blogspot.com Vivi N

      Yeah. I would still do him. Half hoodie and all.

      • JosephLamour

        He just wants to be sexy! Let him be sexy. I would even if he had a Terry RIchardson style peeping tom mustache.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      he can always take the pointless hoodie vest off..i can live with it….

      I love that you guys are stalking Ryan (I secretly am, don’t tell). He deftinitely has a psuedo-hipster vibe (rocks the deep-v, artful scuffing, etc) but he also seems like he’s not the “I’m so over it” guy. And he’s hot. So I let it pass. 

    • Patricia Gillett

      I’m fairly certain that Cory Booker is dressed better today. 

      • MilaXX

         cause he does everything better!

      • tbk2

        Cory Booker. Yum. 

    • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

      Matt Smith does the scuffed shoe much better.

      “Please don’t look at me…I’m hideous”

    • jw_ny

      He looks ridiculous with that hood placed like it is, and I don’t get the point of a sleeveless hoodie with bare arms.  The t-shirt is douchey.  He looks like he needs a shower…feel sorry for whomever sat next to him on the plane. ;)

      • LesYeuxHiboux

        I honestly believe he put the hoodie all the way on, but the combination of ducking his head in front of paps and the backpack over his shoulders is pulling it down.

      I’m just wondering if his glasses have lenses in them or not. I’m not seeing any reflection on them, which makes me think they’re just the frames.

      • guestela

         Hahaha, I love the idea. But I think they do have lenses in them. If you look at the place where they hit his right cheek in the last photo, you can see the edge of his face is slightly misaligned by the prescription.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PRM766RS56X25A5742XLACK2LM Sam

           I can see that. I guess they do have lenses. I wonder if actually needs them to see, or just to seem unconventional.

          • PaulaBerman

             Some people (me, ahem) prefer glasses to contacts. They are more comfortable, and I am as far from a hipster as you can get.

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PRM766RS56X25A5742XLACK2LM Sam

              Believe me, I understand. I’ve worn glasses every day since the sixth grade. I was just wondering if Ryan actually needs them. I can’t find any info online about him wearing contacts either, other than his having to wear brown ones in “The Notebook”, and either he did that movie without actually being able to see, or he managed to find how to double up on contacts, or he wears glasses as a fashion statement.

              Can you guess which one I think it is?

            • sweetestsith

              You can get colored prescription contacts… I’m not saying you’re wrong in the character assessment, just pointing that out. :)

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PRM766RS56X25A5742XLACK2LM Sam

               Good point, I didn’t even think of that.

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Manon-Eileen/1225950770 Manon Eileen

              Additionally, he just got our of a plane… I personally hate to wear my contacts in a plane because the air is so dry. Plus, if it was a long flight you’ll want to take a nap, which sucks with contacts in. Lots of reasons why he’d be wearing his glasses instead of contacts ^^ 

    • Judy_S

      I think he just looks sleepy. Maybe somebody should offer him a pillow.

      • emcat8

        I would happily offer him my pillowy breasts.

    • Amy Ellinger

      i still don’t get the love. Fellow ladies, I will not fight you for him. 

      i just see yet another hipster-y semi-douche that I see on the streets of Austin every day.

      • Pants_are_a_must

        Agreed. I WILL throw him out of bed if he eats crackers. I bet those crackers are some newly-reproduced, crappy old brand that he knew of before everyone else did too.

        • Amy Ellinger

          oh, but you’ve never heard of the brand…it’s really obscure :-)  nice one, pants!

      • Terence Ng

        Good. A better chance for us boys to have him. ;)

        • Amy Ellinger

          calgon, take him away!  :-)

      • formerlyAnon

         Agreed. Maybe it’s the overload we get here in Austin?

        Plus, unlike in, say, Brooklyn or Portland, our hipsters are damp with sweat so many months of the year that it is an additional deterrent.

        • Amy Ellinger

          (hey anon! how goes it?)  yes, stinky hipsters…ewww…i don’t even go to ACL anymore- we sit on a friend’s roof and listen from there!

      • MilaXX

         I’ll sit next to you, only I see them in Philly. Especially if I go get my piercing changed.

        • Amy Ellinger

          i say we run a betting pool…would help pay for my tats and your piercings!

          • MilaXX

            depends. I only have 7 piercings and I think I want 2 more. How many tats you got.

            BTW, I’ve been thinking about a Dancing Gir (in the dog suit, google Invader Zim)tat in a small, not so obvious place. I just hate when tats conflict with a look.

            • Amy Ellinger

              i have 3 right now, but four more planned  :-)  Even if you only get 2 more piercings, we could get a bit of cool jewelry for your 7 haha!

              that character is adorable!  would make a cute tat, but i completely understand about the conflicting with a look concern.  as long as you feel the art really is a “part of you” it will always be in your style wheelhouse- and a good artist can play and really get a custom look for you, even if its an established character design. 

            • MilaXX

              mmm really thinking about it. The piercings I’m getting now are more challenging because they take longer to heal. I got my tragus done 3 mths ago, but that take a year to heal. So I’m trying to decide if I wanna just get the other 2 and have them heal all at once. The only hold back is I just had to get a head MRI so I had to get a temp. glass earring put in. I don’t want to get new piercings and then have go through that again if they want a repeat scan.

            • Amy Ellinger

              I’m all for one big pain rather than several smaller ones- this is why i wax my brows instead of tweezing!  but yeah, def wait until you know the results and if they need another scan- that makes sense. Hope you get good results!

    • siriuslover

      In Ryan’s defense, when you wear a heavy backpack it can drag your clothes down, so it might be that the hoodie was on his head completely and was “caught” by the backpack. Plus, he just got off a plane. I’d cut him some slack because who looks awesome when they fly? (don’t answer that).

    • Rebecca Johnson

      Hey girl, I donated the arms of my hoodie to a sick orphan in coach who had a chill. This bag is full of books I’m going to bring to the children’s hospital later. 

    • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

      He is still delicious!!! 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1344922354 Eric Scheirer Stott

      Add to that the limp undershirt with the droopy neckline- he looks like he’s trying out for the next Project Runway audition.

    • indigospade

      Ewww, hipsters. I feel like I deal with enough of them in my art classes. I guess it’s funny how hollywood and hipsters relate.

      Afterall, the “it’s so hard being me” attitude, the clothes that are “counter culture even though really I’m just conforming to my fallow countercultures”, and the copious amounts of coffee drinking, bad song playing, and screenplay writing can be found in hollywood and in the hipster world. Perhaps they are one in the same.

    • http://twitter.com/arodenha Alli

      Ever since he wore those pajamas at Cannes I’m convinced he’s just been trolling us.

    • SapphoPoet

      I don’t see the reason for all the fuss about him. He’s a perfectly pleasant-looking man, but he’s no better looking than your average guy in any major metro area. And the tshirt and hoodie look completely pretentious.

    • ChaquitaPhilly


    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com/ Rebecca

      Beautiful arms, tacky hoodie.

      Oh, wee Gosling!

    • TheLaurenJean

      I’m just curious why the 2 back packs. Why Ryan? 

      • Judy_S

        Because you are allowed 2 carry-ons?

      • formerlyAnon

         Not paying to check a bag?

    • mom2chj

      Just last week I was out and it unexpectedly started to rain.  I was desperate for a jacket for my son and pulled out a hoodie that I found in my car trunk that was about 2 years old (yes, I am mother of the year). Anyway, the hoodie part sat on my son’s head just like Ryan’s. Maybe I started a trend……….

    • allisankelly

      This is pinging my douche-meter big-time. But he’s so damn cute, I don’t want to trust my pings!

    • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

      Despite the biceps, he just looks like a weakling to me.  There’s nothing especially strong or masculine about him…to me at least.  All of the other fangirls can fight over him.  I’ll wait until I have the opportunity to fight over somebody manlier. =)

    • Terence Ng

      Sorry. He looks so hot, I don’t even care. (Plus, I like hoodie vests, man cleavage, his rockin’ guns, and I understand the half-hood business.)

      Searingly hot. Ugh.

      • formerlyAnon

         I gift you my shot. Statistically unlikely though that is to do you any good.

    • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

      It’s weird. I used to really dislike him, then I actually saw him in something and I’ve thought he was super cute ever since.

      • MilaXX

         I had the opposite happen. Used to like him, saw him on a chat show and now cannot stand him.

    • kimmeister

      How did he manage to roll up his sleeves in ever-so-tiny rolls?!?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1344922354 Eric Scheirer Stott

         a personal assistant?

      • formerlyAnon

        Practice. (Also how they were hemmed in the first place. Can’t do that with a deep hem.)

      • Spicytomato1

        It looks to me like he cut the collar and cuffs off the t-shirt, Flashdance-style. With the cuffs gone, the sleeves roll up by themselves. *shudders*

    • RebeccaKW

      Well, this is unfortunate.  Maybe something happened, and he had to be given clothes from the airport’s lost and found.  He’s so cute and this is so terrible.

    • formerlyAnon

      In between the inexplicable partially donned hoodie and carefully exposed buff arms, you forgot to call out the unnecessarily deeply scooped neck on the t-shirt.

      He’s apparently intent on killing any inkling of understanding I might have for why he’s such a heartthrob for so many.

      • PaulaBerman

         Because look. At his arms. Now imagine his abs. Sorry, they are better than that. He has such a sincere face. Sigh.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      *defensive* Well, maybe his momma didn’t teach him how to dress, the poor thing, it’s not his fault. *defensive*

      Come, sweetheart, come with me. Don’t listen to those meanies, TLo.  

    • Spicytomato1

      Hilarious post. Spot on.

    • MilaXX


      • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

        You managed to sum up everything I said (and not too eloquently) in one simple word.  I bow down.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      He is definitely a twit.  He is a spoiled, bad, bad, very bad little twit.  He needs a spanking.  He needs a spanking right on his bare bottom.  He needs to pull his pants all the way down around his ankles and bend over and then he needs his bare bottom spanked so hard.  Spank spank spank.  Over and over.  Until he is very very very sorry for being a naughty naughty…  wait, what were TLO talking about?

      I’m in love with Gosling’s tailor.

      There is not one straight man alive who dresses like this. Seriously.

    • lordandtaylor

      Hoodies are the flip flops or the clothing world. Nice arms. I wouldn’t mind if he was in the seat next to me.

      Star tip: Always pull yourself back together before you step off the plane. Example: What is up with the T-shirt? Boat necks never work on guys.

    • granddelusion

      Please. Jackass.

      Somehow… I will forgive him his style errors… somehow.

    • PastryGoddess

      Don’t forget the artfully “stretched” t-shirt

    • joe_tey83

      Let’s not forget he also has 2 bags. One for his back and the other for his right hand. The left hand is feeling so left out it retreated to its pocket cave and refused to come out. Even though it’s hiding at a really awkward angle. Look at how Ryan is looking at the poor hand feeling all sorry for it.  

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/K3O2QNXDJIU3AJINAGNJRYWDZ4 mrspotts66

      i’ve never found him attractive in the least. 
      the boat neck stretched collar tee just seals the deal.

      Death to Hoodie-vests!

    • Cecilia Evans

      The hoodie looks like that because he had to rip off the sleeves in a hurry to fashion tourniquets for a basket of injured puppies he encountered on the way to the airport.  He selflessly bares his arms and the puppies live.  He’s a hero, people.

    • msdamselfly

      You really mean–sometimes a hoodie worn like that feels just right if it’s not cold out.

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      I always find planes too cold, so just looking at that T-shirt is giving me goosebumps. But maybe when you’re flying in your private jet/first class cocoon pod, you get to tell them to turn down the air-conditioning a bit 0_o.

    • butter nut

      All the posts are hilarious.
      There is no excuse for a sleeveless hoodie.  Worse; pizza-man t-shirt with tiny rolled arms.

    • lilazander

      I totally agree with you guys, but I am still succumbing to his charm.

      Hey, I’ve never found sleeveless turtleneck tops for ladies to have a point.  Nor one-sleeve dresses/gowns.  RyRy is cute as a bug.  A bug w/ a nice pair of guns, that is.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      You know, I usually look like a total greaseball after a flight. But by the time I get to where I’m going, I’ve usually had at least one connection; spent a horrific delay sitting on the floor outside the air club so I can hijack their free wifi; either eaten nothing at all or eaten something really disgusting (Sbarro); sat crammed in a middle seat in coach class between two weirdos in the last row next to the bathroom; and had to haul my own luggage. Celebrities who get dropped off and picked up at the door, go through VIP security, wait in the VIP lounge, and fly first class have NO excuses.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I hate hoodies–hoodie vest???

    • Lina_bee

      Sorry, but I’ve yet to see his appeal. He gives me a “ridiculous little brother” vibe.

    • bellafigura1

      I can’t even focus on anything but the arms.  In!

    • eight_of_nine

      Hey, girl.  Your hoodie may be useless, but I’ll keep you warm.

    • PeaceBang

      Yea, but I’d still stop dead in my tracks to watch him walk down the street. 

    • quiltrx

      The hoodie looks pretty douchey.  Looks like he’s experimenting with those oddball looks that only work on the likes of Jude Law.

      Ryan, simple is better…you don’t need to be a hipster douche when you’re a hunk!

    • Cheri Lee

      Twit or no twit, I still want him.

      Hey boy, love the way that pointless hoodie vest keeps the back of your head warm.

    • mom2ajs5

      It’s just cuz I already ripped the sleeves off! ;-)

       Oh and totally rock a sleeveless hoodie if I had arms like his, just saying. :D

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Manon-Eileen/1225950770 Manon Eileen

      Ah… I’m afraid I can officially categorize myself in his fangirl group. I can’t help it. I don’t care whatever he’s wearing – he’s cute and hot. And I love the glasses.

    • MichaelStrangeways

      Who cares? We’re all at the Gun Show!!!

    • RzYoung

      I’m concerned he’s going to image-implode, his very name is a bit of a joke :( he needs to tone it all down

    • jblaked

      Dear Lord, I was not prepared for those pictures.  I literally just choked on my sandwich.  Way too much hotness for the lunch hour.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Is it just me, or does anyone else HATE that trend of half tucking in, half leaving out, the t-shirt from the jeans?  Drives me NUTS.  My OCD can’t handle that.  Also how casually the chest is revealed because the half-hoodie is pulling at it.  Lastly, how does just the toes of your shoes get that scuffed, when the rest of them are fine??  Sheesh, what a twit.

    • librarygrrl64

      Never thought I’d say these words: Ryan Gosling looks like a hot mess. :-(

    • ccm800

      Yeah this is no.

    • Sarah Hankins

      Goodness, so much vitriol over a man attempting to play with fashion.  As a friend of mine once said, all fashion is conceit.  What’s the problem with a guy wearing a sleeveless hoodie and rolling up his tshirt sleeves just for looks?  Why is everybody so nasty about hipsters (especially male hipsters) because they dress for fun, or in hopes of looking awesome, or as an expression of some outlandish aesthetic?  Women do this all the time – we EXPECT women to do this.  We’re bored unless famous women attempt to play with fashion, whether on the RC or the street.  I think there’s a difference between disliking hipster fashion as a matter of personal taste, and deriding hipsters for having a fashion/style at all.  The latter just seems like bullying/picking on a particular social group for their nonconformism, and that makes me sad.  Now I don’t know if Ryan Gosling is actually a hipster or not, but sheesh, let the boy wear shit just for the fun of it!  

    • amywinns

      Seriously, being way too hard on the sleeveless hoodie thing. If it was a vest, no one would blink. He was on a plane; a little extra layer is smart. So what if there’s a hood? Re the sleeves… they are short and finished with thin (or no) hems. It’s an expensive designer Tshirt, don’t act so shocked it’s not Hanes square-cut everything. Clearly the same shoes as in another post and they were OK there.
      I flippin hate try-tohard hipsters, but I save it for when it’s actually offensive. These are travel clothes, hardly  offensive in that context.
