Josh Brolin Made Fun Of An Actor That Sounds A Lot Like Ryan Gosling

September 23, 2015 / Posted by:

In an interview with Man of the World (via ET), Josh Brolin laughed at the young actors nowadays who think they’re hot shit with their leather jackets and their tough dude accents. Josh talked about one actor he worked with and even though he didn’t name names, it’s pretty clear that he’s talking trash about Ryan Gosling. Take it away, Naranja Face:

“I see young Hollywood punks on the set, and it’s funny to me. Because it’s absolutely me all over again. I’m the old guy who’s like, ‘Oh cool, you got your leather jacket and it cost you $400 and you bought it all ripped up!’ I remember a guy I worked with who was from Ontario, but he talked like De Niro. I was like, ‘Holy shit, he’s actually doing De Niro.’ Does he know that I know? I’m not even listening to what he’s saying. It’s fascinating to me.”

It didn’t take long for the Internet to solve that not-so-blind item. Ryan Gosling is from Ontario and he and Josh worked together in Gangster Squad. But Ryan isn’t trying to do De Niro. Ryan’s trying to do Marlon Brando and yes, he’s admitted that shit before. Get it right, Josh. Just for that, Ontario is going to ban Josh Brolin for hating on their hometown prince. And while Josh was laughing at Ryan’s fake Brando accent on the inside, Ryan may have been thinking to himself, “I know this motherfucker is laughing at my fake accent, but I’d rather have a fake accent than be known as a wife-beating bar fighting wreck.”

And here’s a little video Vulture put together of the history of Ryan Gosling’s accent:
