How 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Became an Indie Phenomenon

How 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Became an Indie Phenomenon

Look Back at Ryan Gosling's Heartthrob Evolution

  • Popsugar
With Ryan Gosling's 34th birthday on Nov. 12, we're looking back on his time in the Hollywood spotlight. He's been winning hearts and weakening knees for two decades, charming fans on screen and off with his witty one-liners and swoon-worthy smirk. Back in the early '90s, he captured the crowd's attention at a talent show before bringing his smooth moves to The Mickey Mouse Club. From there, Ryan became a teen heartthrob, a romantic leading man, and a fan favorite so lovable that people actually petitioned for him to be People's 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. Most recently, Ryan became a dad. Actually, let's rephrase that - Ryan is officially a hot dad. In honor of his approaching birthday, go all the way back to Ryan's adorable days on the Disney channel to see his heartthrob evolution from adorable crooner to Hollywood's hottest Dilf.

Happy Birthday, Sandra Bullock! See Our Five Favorite Movie Roles
It might be hard to believe, but Sandra Bullock turns the big 5-0 on Saturday.

Michael Pitt on I Origins, Rejecting Superhero Tights, and the Lasting Impact of Doing Dawson’s Creek

Michael Pitt on I Origins, Rejecting Superhero Tights, and the Lasting Impact of Doing Dawson’s Creek
Michael Pitt is the rare actor who, after 15 years in the business (including a stint on Dawson's Creek), remains idiosyncratic and whole. Clocking most of his time with independent filmmakers and esteemed names like Gus Van Sant, Michael Haneke, and Bernardo Bertolucci, Pitt remains a stranger to the throes of studio movies — Murder by Numbers and The Village being rare exceptions. He has never been forced to fit a star mold. His collaborators wouldn't have it any other way. One hundred percent undistilled Pitt ranges from brooding intensity to lunacy of every color. He does what he does, and he does it well. The maturation of television worked in his favor; Boardwalk Empire and NBC's Hannibal have Hollywood sheen and artistic souls. One might describe Pitt the same way.In I Origins, Pitt skews closer to "leading man" territory than ever before. His character, Ian Gray, is a dapper

Michael Pitt Starrer ‘I Origins’ to Open Karlovy Vary
London — The Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival will open with the international premiere of Mike Cahill’s “I Origins,” which will be attended by the film’s lead actor Michael Pitt, Cahill and actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey.

Pic enters on a young scientist whose work investigates the human eye. His research leads him to the discovery of surprising links between the human physiognomy and psyche, with implications bordering on the mystical.

The film garnered a great deal of attention at this year’s Sundance film festival, where it won the Alfred P. Sloan prize for films focusing on science, and was picked up by Fox Searchlight for worldwide distribution.

The film marked out Cahill, who won the same prize at Sundance three years ago for “Another Earth,” as a promising filmmaker to watch.

Pitt previously attended Karlovy Vary in 2005, when he presented Gus Van Sant’s Last Days.”

Killer Queens: 13 Embarrassing Gay Movie Villains

Movies and television have a long history of casting effeminate gay men as the bad guys – the added layer of “otherness” is a popular way of making a villain all the more loathsome to a mainstream audience. While recent years have brought us several notable subversions of this idea with aggressively masculine gay villains (Strike Back‘s James Leatherby, Dexter‘s Ivan Sirko), the hissing, scheming gay baddie has always been the more popular stock-in-trade.

Whether explicitly gay or just “coded” that way to slip past the sensors, these guys represent some of cinema’s most notable acts of heteronormative villainy.

Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) — 300

Much has been made about the fact that a movie that could otherwise have doubled as an International Male swimwear catalog went out of its way to present evil King Xerxes as a prissy, jewelry-crazed predatory homosexual (despite the fact that the actual Xerxes is portrayed

Ryan Gosling Characters You Don't Want to Say 'Hey' To You

Oh, Ryan Gosling. America's Sweetheart. The man who was robbed — robbed! — of the Sexiest Man Alive title. There are several good reasons why The Gos inspired the wave of "Hey Girl" memes: He's our handsome dream boyfriend who will write to us every day for a year, will do the "Dirty Dancing" lift with us in his living room and break up a street fight in New York on his way home from the gym, and so much more.

But what of the other side of Ryan Gosling? The somewhat darker side. Sir is a thespian, after all, and not all of his movies involve good-looking charmers who sweep the heroine off her feet with a romantic gesture. In "Drive," for example, Gosling's character's version of a romantic gesture is wordlessly smashing a guy's skill in in an elevator in front of his girl. Hey girl? Nay, girl.

Gosbook: The Ryan Gosling Loner Friend-o-Meter

Poor Ryan Gosling. He's one of the most popular actors on the planet (or at least on the Internet), and yet he usually plays such a lonely boy.

Sure, Gosling has had his share of companions, lovers and even wives in his movies, but for the most part he's made a career at playing the rugged loner, the lone wolf who walks (or drives) the earth with only very few "friends" ... if you can even call them that half the time.

Upon the release of "Only God Forgives," in which his only pal is a prostitute (natch), we've tallied the number of friends perennial loner Ryan Gosling has had in some of his other films (via a "Gosbook" interface, of course): "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2012), "The Ides of March" (2011), "Crazy Stupid Love" (2011), "Drive" (2011), "Blue Valentine" (2010), "Lars and the Real Girl" (2007), "Half Nelson" (2006), "The Notebook" (2004), "United States of Leland

Ryan Gosling Is Taking A Break

Ryan Gosling Is Taking A Break
New York — What's Ryan Gosling's secret to his on-screen poise, his ability to disarm and provoke merely by his laconic presence?

"Just try not to blink," he says with a self-deprecating smile.

But Gosling's uncanny, communicative stillness – along with his sensitive vulnerability, his serious dedication to his work and, well, the guy ain't bad looking – has made him one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, a widely beloved, new-generation idol. It might be the only role he's uncomfortable playing.

Rather than exude preternatural cool, in a recent interview Gosling spoke more with the uncertain, self-critical grasping of a still-developing actor trying to find his foothold in an illusory profession. Soon to direct his first film, he's looking forward to taking a step back just when moviegoers can't get enough.

"I've been doing it too much," he says of acting. "I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I

New Stills Released From ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’

As a huge Blue Valentine fan (it’s my #1 favourite film besides Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) I was more than happy to learn that Ryan Gosling would be teaming up with Derek Cianfrance for the second time for The Place Beyond The Pines. With just over two months to go, excitement is rife, especially as a selection of brand new stills have been released and spread across the internet.

Gosling stars as Luke, a motrocycle stunt driver who travels across America with a circus. When they land back in New York, Luke decides to meet up with his old girlfriend Romina (Eva Mendes), only to find that she’s had his baby. Desperate to be a good father and to form a proper relationship with his son, Luke finds a job as a car mechanic, working alongside Robin (Ben Mendelsohn). But when Robin learns of Luke’s insane skills on a motorbike,
