Is that Ryan Gosling? Who Is This Dapper Young Man? — PHOTO

Who is that handsome young fellow on the left? Surely it’s Ryan Gosling looking pensive in a shot from some new arthouse film he’s taken on. It must be.

But it’s not. Long before he was ending Golden Globes speeches with “Ta Da!” Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz was brooding handsomely in Austrian films like 1981’s Kopfstand, which is where this dashing glimpse of young Waltz comes from.

The only question that remains is: which early ‘80s Waltz movie will we watch first? He did play Tristan in a 1982 German film version of the classic love tragedy Tristan and Isolde. That seems like a good place to start. Commence the swooning.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
