Considering his knack for playing serial killers, bad husbands, guys in love with sex dolls, Jewish neo-Nazis and drug addicts, it’s a tad surprising to find out that Ryan Gosling’s career was jumpstarted by the Disney machine. Not only did he live in Orlando for two years as part of the Mouseketeer class that included Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake but the studio also released his film debut “Remember The Titans” in 2001. The same year, Young Hercules starred in the Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner “The Believer,” which got the critics’ attention. It was the tabloids’ attention he caught by dating 16-years-older Sandra Bullock in 2002. In 2004, he grabbed the attention of women everywhere thanks to “The Notebook,” an epic romance that sparked a two-year real-life romance with Rachel McAdams. He’s become an awards show regular with an Oscar nod for 2006’s “Half Nelson” (He won a Spirit Award for that role.) and four Golden Globe nominations (“Ides Of March,” “Blue Valentine,” “Lars and The Real Girl,” and “Crazy,Stupid, Love”). He’s also part of rock duo Dead Man’s Bones and co-owner of a restaurant. After being linked to Kirsten Dunst and Blake Lively, he started saying "Hey girl" to Eva Mendes in 2011.
