This might be the best quote to ever escape Ryan Gosling's lips. Now, we all love to drool and oogle over his chiseled physique, right? Yes, of course. Those toned biceps, his perfectly-sculpted abs –- the man is pure perfection. But according to Ryan himself, his muscles are completely "pointless" and basically like pets.

Wait a minute… what?

While discussoing women (yes, and men) fainting at the sight of Ryan with his shirt off, he said, “Anyone can get those if they work at it. It’s just a lot of exercising. And it’s really quite pointless, because you go to a gym and you lift a heavy thing so a muscle grows, but the only thing the muscle can actually do is to left that heavy thing.”

Alright, here’s where animals come in…

“After a while they’re like pets because they don’t do anything useful,” he continued. “But you have to feed them and take care of them otherwise they’ll go away. I feel a bit goofy having them, to tell you the truth.”

Muscles, like pets? Probably the best analogy ever. So Ryan, because you made this comment, this picture just had to be made. You’re welcome.

Do you agree with Ryan’s muscles/pets comparison?
