Ryan Gosling Adds ‘Hero’ to His Rep

Did you need another reason to think Ryan Gosling is a hot slice of cutie pie? No, but you’ve got one anyway.

Gosling was spotted accidentally on camera breaking up a fight here in NYC. As the two men tussled in the middle of the street, the movie star comes out of nowhere and squashes the beef.

The E! headline: “Ryan Gosling Stops Fight in NYC Streets, Makes Us Swoon.” Us magazine writes, “The 30-year-old actor saved the day Saturday.” EW‘s PopWatch blog questions whether it is Gosling, but then writes, “If it is him does it further solidify his spot as dreamiest man alive?”

If not the dreamiest, at least one of the bravest. Twitter is lighting up with tweets from people who have “spotted” Gosling taking his heroics to the NYC streets again to help with the earthquake aftermath.

As we saw with Bradley Cooper recently, an off-the-cuff happenstance can boost a celeb’s reputation in ways that their usual scripted material can’t.

Gosling, because of his film choices and, let’s be honest, smashing good looks, has already inspired a devoted fan base that could stare at this gif wall for hours. But a small gesture to stop the violence on streets of Gotham… that goes a long way with fans. I’ll be purchasing my ticket to Crazy Stupid Love this weekend.
