I feel like these are just an opportunity to back-door brag about
oneself, and that makes me feel weird, so I'm going to let my best
friend Ryan Gosling write this for me;
Hey, this is Ryan Gosling, writing in behalf of my best friend,
Brandon. Where to begin, I mean... he's everything to me. I owe him
for where I am today. He's the one that not only told me to get
into acting, but has coached me on every role I've played. Remember
the Notebook? Well I was struggling to grasp the character and I'll
never forget what Brandon said to me; he said, "Ryan. Be passionate
and get rained on sometimes." Boom. He was right. Box office magic.
Remember when I take my shirt off in 'Crazy, Stupid, Love'? No,
Brandon was not my body double... he refused, but I was feeling
insecure about it and he told me, "No Ryan. I will not just give
you a fish to feed you for a day (by being your body double)... I'm
going to train you until your body looks like mine." Boom. That was
ME in that shot. Not Brandon. Me. He did it. He got my body almost
identical to his. Alright, Brandon is gonna kill me for telling you
all of this, but I just want people to know the impact he's had on
me. He's the best. Heck, I'd date him! He hates when I say that,
lol. Anyways, I just... I just love him. That's all.
- Love Ryan Gosling
What I’m doing with my life
I'm actually thinking about going back to school. Not for a masters
or PhD but like the way Adam Sandler did it in Billy Madison...
doing all the grades over. That seemed like a fun idea, and he made
some friends along the way.
I’m really good at
Being poor. Some people are bad at it, and they become gross and
loud. I am usually able to cover up my poorness by saying things
like, "no, get anything on the menu you'd like, don't worry about
it. How about chips and artichoke dip? You don't want that? Have
you tried it? Let's get it, it's delicious. I highly recommend it.
No? Look, we are splitting chips and artichoke dip, got it!? It IS
enough! It is. It's all you can eat chips. It's plenty. Fill up,
because we don't want to leave room for dessert, or entrees." Stuff
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that when I was younger my favorite game was dodgeball on
the trampoline. Or... my butt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: not to sound like some pompous jerk or anything but you give
me pretty much ANY classic, sit me in front of a cozy fireplace,
and I will just... be asleep instantly. And when I do finish
whatever book I will probably say, "I mean it was fine, but a
CLASSIC?" Movies: The classics. And any sort of Noir. Love some
Noir. Shows: TV noir. Music: usually just soundtracks from film
noir. Food: you know, the classics. And corn on the cob. Is that a
classic yet? It will be. It's so good!
The six things I could never do without
1. Well the first thing I would obviously wish for more
2. cell phones. Otherwise I'd have to make eye contact with humans
and use mouth words for interactions and my own expressions for
feelings instead of emojis. No thanks.
3. Toddlers and Tiaras. Too many parents these days just let their
kids simply do whatever they want. No ambition. They don't care at
all about putting them into beauty pageants. It's sad.
5. Corn on the cob. Classic.
6. I'm torn, because I want to say family but...ahhhh chinchilla
coats! (Family would be #7.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This game we call Life. Technically I guess it's the game Hasbro
calls Life. And how that game taught me that it's almost always
better to go straight to career than do college. Insurance rarely
was worth it because I never landed on the tornado wrecked your
house space anyways. Getting married just slowed ya down. And
paying tolls is super annoying. That game taught me everything I
know about life.
On a typical Friday night I am
... couldn't tell ya, cuz I won't remember! Right!? Woo! Spring
break! Gimme druuuugs!! Someone high five me!! Where's my uber!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Okay, THIS type of question is why I hate these things. This
question is so leading. It is a blatant attempt to PRY out of
people whether they have HIV or not. I will not answer this.
Message my inbox if you want to know.
You should message me if
you want someone who can just like... be chill, ya know? But also
can be serious and pragmatic. But notwithstanding the fact he isn't
afraid to chill out at times too. And if you want someone who can
treat you right... but not like he's a wuss ya know? Like I will
treat you wrong sometimes too, but then make it right eventually by
being chill about it, because as mentioned a little bit ago I have
that trait. Is being chill a trait? See just asking that is showing
my pragmatism. So... you pretty much get the full spectrum with me.
