His most popular work is everyone’s favorite romantic movie The Notebook inspired by Nicholas Sparks’ book. Similar to how Gosling’s characters in his romantic movies have their fandom, there is a fandom that lives on Gosling playing a father. The 41-year-old is a proud father of two daughters with Eva Mendes. And the actor recently talked about how two of his recent projects have been mostly for his kids. Considering how Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are very strict about privacy when it comes to their kids, let us instead look at three adorable times when Gosling played a dad.
Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong
The 2018 movie, First Man revolved around the landing of the First Man aka Neil Armstrong on the moon. And Ryan Gosling played the character down to the last cell. In the biographical flick, Gosling plays dad to Armstrong’s two-year-old ailing daughter Karen.
Ryan Gosling as Luke Glanton
The 2012 crime drama movie was directed by Derek Cianfrance. Gosling played a stunt driver named Luke Glanton. Furthermore, Gosling and his now-wife play their parents in this movie. Albeit receiving only moderate box office success there is no denying that it represents beautifully how fatherhood changes a person.
Ryan Gosling as Dean Pereira
Blue Valentine is one of Gosling’s best works and earned him a Golden Globes nomination. The movie is a beautiful depiction of how one doesn’t necessarily need to have their kid in order to be a parent.
The romantic melodrama follows Dean and Cindy as they try to make their marriage for their daughter. It is incredibly heart-wrenching. You can watch the movie on Prime Video.
Gosling was already with fifty extra pounds and a receding hairline to play the dad of a fourteen-year-old in The Lovely Bones. However, a few altercations led him to walk out.
