George Clooney Explains Why Ryan Gosling Skipped the Golden Globes
So just where was Gosling, 31, who was in the running for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama)?
"He's in Thailand or something," Gosling's Ides of March costar George Clooney, 50, told reporters backstage. "He wrote me a nice letter, an e-mail, this morning. You know, he's gotta work. He's gotta earn a living. He's a struggling actor."
All kidding aside, it's probably a good thing Gosling was on location shooting the mixed martial arts movie Only God Forgives: he lost to Clooney, who also triumphed over Brad Pitt (Moneyball), Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar) and Michael Fassbender (Shame).
Before Clooney was announced the winner, the actor joked that he would "probably lose" in every category. "I'll probably go zero for four and it'll be one of those nights for me," he told Us Weekly.
In addition to Clooney's Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) award, The Descendants -- which also stars Shailene Woodley, Judy Greer and Beau Bridges -- won Best Motion Picture (Drama).
