For all the time we spend obsessing and guessing about celebrity relationships, there’s something that’s just so wonderful and charming and sweet about two actors who bypass the are-they-or-aren’t-they romantic buzz and go directly to a place of genuine respect, affection, and friendship—isn’t there? And while there are lots of celebrifriends whose relationships give us a vicarious thrill, our most favoritest favorite has to be Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, whose professions of mutual adoration had us awwww-ing all the way through this behind-the-scenes featurette for “Gangster Squad.”
These two totally dig each other, and they’re not afraid to say it…and say it, and say it. Let’s look back at some of the cutest comments to come out of their professional collaborations!
In which Ryan is a hero
Emma claims to have seen Ryan save the life of another human being 18 times. Hopefully while wearing a tank top.
In which there are no words
“It’s impossible to describe. She’s everything, all the time. There’s nobody like her,” Ryan replied when asked what it was like to work with Emma on “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
Ryan’s best body part is his…brain
“I’ve asked him to read a couple of scripts,” Emma told Interview. “I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person. It has really just been scripts so far, because I only met him two years ago when we did ’Crazy, Stupid, Love,’ but it was like meeting a member of your team or something. I really like his brain.”
In which Ryan finds his motivation
According to the actor, it wasn’t hard to act smitten when playing opposite Emma: “Show me someone that wouldn’t give it all up for Emma Stone, and I’ll show you a liar.”
In which Emma gets lucky
“I’m the luckiest girl in the world because Wooters is being played by Ryan,” she gushed of her part in “Gangster Squad.” “He’s so fantastic at that kind of banter.”
In which the two are plagued by drama…or lack thereof
And, finally, according to Ryan, the only challenge of working with Emma: having too much fun. “We get a little goofy around each other, so it was hard for us to be dramatic,” he said.
