Ryan Gosling
Paul Morigi for Variety



He may be known as the mega-heartthrob in hits like “The Notebook” and “Crazy Stupid Love,” but in recent years, Gosling has continued to reinvent himself with varied roles. After landing his second Oscar nomination for “La La Land,” he’s ready to once again make waves as Ken to Margot Robbie’s living doll in Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie,” a role he said he couldn’t turn down. That film, out in summer 2023, has lit up the pop-culture zeitgeist thanks to photos of Gosling’s bleached-blond hair.

In 2022, Gosling starred in Netflix’s massive action thriller “The Gray Man,” opposite Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, and he’s set to reprise his role in a sequel.
