So it's understandable that sometimes other, non-Ryan Gosling humans who find themselves around Ryan Gosling simply do not behave normally. Reality, and most social norms, go straight out the window. A person is no longer in charge of their faculties, and their limbs and facial expressions act as though independent of their brain; their brain that is now mush because they can't stop staring right into his eyes.
Fellow celebrities aren't immune from this affliction—in fact, they are even more susceptible on account of their frequent run-ins with the star.
Apparently, it's everything.
Just look at last night. The beyond venerable Meryl Streep, who is still fresh off of delivering an incredibly impressive speech, completely lost control of her faculties around Ryan. He looked so cute that she just needed to ooh and ahh and scratch him under the chin, but because he is a man and not a puppy that she settled for fixing his bow tie.
And, sadly, all Reynolds could come up with was a finger point. Sure, Gosling did the same, but his face is calm, cool and collected, as if to say, Hey girl, I look great in photos even when I do the finger-point. Reynolds, on the other hand, has a face that say, Holy crap can you believe I'm standing next to Ryan Gosling? And get a load of how good-looking his face is! Also, am I doing the finger-point? My vision is going fuzzy.
