Happy birthday, Ryan Gosling! The actor, who turns 34 today, got his start as a mouseketeer on The Mickey Mouse Club with fellow member Justin Timberlake (they even lived together!) After playing Rachel McAdams’s lover in The Notebook (a romance we all wish continued IRL), Gosling experimented with darker roles, such as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson and a stunt driver in Drive. And just as Emma Stone did, we gawked at his abs in Crazy, Stupid, Love.
The Canadian heartthrob looked as dapper as ever back in May at the Cannes Film Festival, where he presented his directorial debut, Lost River. Now the Golden Globe nominee has a new role: father to Esmeralda Amada with longtime girlfriend Eva Mendes. He may be off the market but, hey girl, don't worry: You can still admire his best looks here.
