Although he has yet to play a super hero on the big screen, Ryan Gosling is practically our modern-day Clark Kent –I’ll even let him rock the nerd glasses.
You might remember a little incident a few months ago where Ryan broke up a street fight in the middle of downtown Manhattan. Well, this week he was out in LA and saved a woman from getting hit by a taxi cab!
Yes! Like straight out of The Wedding Planner. Well sort of..
The woman, a disoriented European & self-proclaimed über feminist journalist from the UK forgot that she was standing on 6th Ave in NYC and instead thought she was back in the homeland where cars drive on the opposite side of the road. Besides the fact that she’s an idiot & was probably on her phone or something, in comes Ryan Gosling and swoops her out of the way and saves her life. The irony.
Immediately after realizing who it was the woman did the obvious. She tweeted about it, DUH! But later, regretted her actions & began pointing fingers at American’s for being so stupid & superficial for making such a big deal about such a super hot celeb saving someone’s life. Well excuuuuuuussseeeee me little miss perfect.
This coming from the woman who bragged on Twitter about the incident immediately after it occurred.
Anyways, here is a bit of her Twitter rant:
I say he should have let her get hit by the bus, but that’s just me.
If you never saw the street fight video or didn’t believe me when I mentioned it earlier, here it is! & below is his adorable explanation as to what happened that day..
“I think that guy really was stealing that other guy’s painting, so I should have just kept my nose out of it,” Gosling recalled, “It was sad, because it turns out that I said to the guy, ‘Why are you doing this?’ he said, ‘Well he tried to steal my painting.’ I said, ‘How do you know?’ and he said, ‘Well he comes here every day and looks at my paintings,’ which means the guy was a fan, and so he wanted the painting so bad he had to steal it because he couldn’t afford it. So he finally steals the painting and then he’s getting his ass kicked by his hero, and then the guy from The Notebook shows up and makes it weirder.”
Gosling continued, “It’s just, the whole thing. Nobody wins, nobody won. I did not win. I had just come from the gymnasium, and I was all stretched out and feeling warmed up.”
