Ryan Gosling can stop a street fight by cooling the boiling blood in everyone’s head with the velvety maple syrup essence that wafts off of him when he cracks a smile, but his life-saving powers go way beyond that. Ryan Godling is a real human being AND a real hero. Laurie Penny, a British journalist, learned this firsthand when Ryan saved her from walking in front of a speeding taxi in NYC yesterday. Laurie was on 6th Avenue and completely forgot that all American cars are righters. Laurie was looking the other way when Ryan winked death away from her by pulling her to safety. Of course, Laurie Tweeted about her real-life remake of Closer and of course, Ryan wore a Canadian tuxedo while saving her from getting a bear hug from the Grim Reaper. via Observer:
I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened.
I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi.
He did not say ‘hey, girl.’ He said ‘hey, watch out!’
Identity of no-idea-if-actually-a-manarchist-but-definitely-a-decent-sort Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said ‘you lucky bitch’
Confession: I did a double-double-take because, initially, I thought it was @jedweightman. Then realised Jed would not wear double denim.
Are we sure the cab driver didn’t just swerve out of the way to pull over and fap to the boner-inducing Canadian dream in the flesh? But I really want to know is how did Laurie reward Ryan for his heroic act? I mean, the reasonable thing to do what would be to let Ryan know that you are going to honor his heroism by pinning your Purple No-No Medal to his peen.
And when your ass walks by a pink wig-wearing ho lying on the street after getting hit by a taxi, you can tell her that she’s just been Gosling’ed.
