Ryan Gosling Out-Heartthrobs Himself in ‘Drive’ Poster

Even after weighing all the pros and cons of Ryan Gosling, I can’t decide if he’s one of the few young performers with integrity, soul and diversity…or a holier-than-thou freeloader who manages to team up with top notch filmmakers capable of turning his pretty boy antics into passable performances. Maybe he’s both.

Point is, with Gosling around, no man can ever be good enough—and this new poster for the upcoming Drive certainly isn’t helping. With his blood-stained white tee, perfectly combed hair, well-positioned toothpick and badass stare, I’m comfortable saying that the one-sheet has it all. If I weren’t so busy being jealous of Gosling, I’d probably be pumped for this movie.


After a few years of working behind the scenes on movies and TV shows (and earning an IMDb page for bragging rights), Movies Editor Matt Patches made a hard right into the world of entertainment journalism. In 2009, Patches became the Associate Movies Editor of UGO.com, departing in 2010 to go rogue as a writer-for-hire. Patches covered movies and festivals for a number of outlets, including Movieline, MTV NextMovie, CinemaBlend, and Film School Rejects, before joining Hollywood.com as Movies Editor in 2011. He proudly names "Groundhog Day" as his favorite movie of all time.
