Ryan GoslingRyan Thomas Gosling (born November 12, 1980) is a Canadian actor and musician.  Having first gained notice at the age of 12 as a mouseketeer on the variety show The Mickey Mouse Club, Gosling has built a reputation for playing misfits in independent films: a fanatic Neo-Nazi in the The Believer (2001), a drug-addicted junior high school teacher in Half Nelson (2006), a socially inept loner in Lars and the Real Girl (2007) and a frazzled husband in Blue Valentine (2010).

His most commercially successful movie to date is 2004's romantic drama The Notebook. He has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Leading Actor (for Half Nelson) and two Golden Globe Awards (for Lars and the Real Girl and Blue Valentine).

2011 saw him expand his horizons. He appeared in his first comedic role in Crazy, Stupid, Love and his first action role in Drive. He was also directed by George Clooney in political drama The Ides of March, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival.

Gosling was born in London, Ontario but grew up in Cornwall. He is the son of Donna, a secretary, and Thomas Gosling, a paper mill worker. He was raised in a Latter Day Saint family, and has since stated that he "wasn't really Mormon, my parents were". His parents divorced when he was young and he was raised by his mother. He has said that he had "no pals" as a child and was homeschooled for a year after being bullied in elementary school.

He performed from an early age. He and his older sister, Mandi, sang together at weddings; he performed with his uncle's Elvis Presley tribute act, Elvis Perry, and he was involved with a local dance company. He spent part of his childhood in Florida, USA after successfully auditioning for a part on The Mickey Mouse Club at the age of twelve.

He developed an idiosyncratic accent as a child, later explaining, "As a kid I thought having a Canadian accent didn't sound tough. I thought guys should sound like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that I can't shake, so it's not phony anymore."

He dropped out of high school at the age of seventeen to focus on his acting career.

Gosling lives in New York with his dog of eleven years, George.

He was in a relationship with Rachel McAdams, his co-star in The Notebook, from 2005 to 2007; they also reconciled for a number of months in 2008. Following their split, Gosling described her as "one of the great loves of my life." He dated Sandra Bullock, sixteen years his senior, for over a year from 2002 to 2003, after meeting on the set of Murder by Numbers.

He co-owns a Moroccan restaurant called Tagine in Beverly Hills, California.

Supportive of various social causes, he has worked particularly closely with the Enough Project, travelling in 2010 to eastern Congo.. He was Hollywood's representative at the Campus Progress National Conference in 2008 where he spoke out about Darfur. Gosling said, "For some reason, there's an interest in what people who do what I do have to say... I'm honored to have these experiences."
