33 never looked so good – like ever. Even though we’re still in mourning over the relationship status of “taken” by Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling is still number one in our hearts and we mean that with every single ounce of our being. Today, we celebrate this hunk’s 33rd birthday and let’s face it: there is absolutely no other way to pay tribute to the day this beaut was born than bringing back some of our favorite “hey girl” memes. For any young female adult, these memes have helped us through some challenging break ups and some really difficult finals weeks. But even before these memes came out, Ryan Gosling was a hot commodity in the acting world. Check out a few of our favorites!
Recognize these two superstars? Say hi to Ryan and Britney Spears. They were members of the Mickey Mouse Club back in the day with other big names Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and JC Chasez. Sadly, we aren’t old enough to remember this.
Remember this little guy? He captured our hearts in 2000’s Remember the Titans. His locker room dance moves are definitely ones that would catch our eye.
Ugh, The Notebook. Dear Rachel McAdams, you messed up sista. That’s all. Dear Ryan, we would be spontaneous with you. That’s all.
It would be unfair to deny the world of Ryan in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Emma Stone, you are a lucky girl.
Before we rattle off a few of our favorites, take a look at this adorable interview we found when Ryan reads some of his “Hey Girl” memes.
