34 Times We Fell In Love With Ryan Gosling, For His 34th Birthday

Hey, boy - happy birthday.

On Wednesday (November 12), the world will officially enter XXXIV -- which is fancy Roman Numerals for the 34th year of our Internet GIF savior, Ryan Gosling.

33 already gave Gosling the birth of his first child and his directorial debut "Lost River," so we've decided to up the game a little bit by giving him this collection of GIFs.

Without further ado, let's take a trip down memory lane, with these 34 moments that made us love Ryan Gosling:

1. When he shone his talent early on with "Mickey Mouse Club."

2. ... And also proved that he keeps good company.

19. ... And made us wish we were a doll in "Lars and the Real Girl."

20. A doll or a bear. Either one works.

25. Abs for days. Too much abs for Emma Stone.

26. One might say she had "the time of her life."

29. But he had plenty of political fun in "The Ides of March."

30. ... And gangster fun in "Gangster Squad."

31. Which was great, because Ryan had no fun at all in "The Place Beyond the Pines."

32. Or "Only God Forgives," for that matter.

33. Oh well.

34. At least he'll always have... Oh yeah! "The Notebook."
