How do you solve a problem like Ryan Gosling?
There’s arguably no more popular male star right now, at least as far as social media goes. Ryan has been the subject of countless memes, from “Hey girl” to hating a certain breakfast food, and you’re not likely to find any celeb more women are crushing on and more men want to be. Basically, the world is ready to lap up anything and everything Gosling… except, um, his movies.
The Crazy Stupid Love star was a no-show at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, even though his much-anticipated Drive follow-up Only God Forgives was (arguably) the most buzzed-about movie going into the fest. However, the film didn’t exactly get a standing ovation ― it got booed by some amidst some applause. And this certainly is not the first Ryan Gosling film to be met with a cold shoulder by audiences and critics… so what gives?
