In Hollywood, the name of certain actors is often taken parallel to various genres of films and shows. For action films, we have Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks for slice-of-life dramas, and Henry Cavill and Robert Downey Jr. in the superhero genre. However, when we talk about romantic films, one of the first names that comes to our mind is Ryan Gosling. Gosling is the romantic heartthrob of our generation. While The Gray Man actor is very versatile and experimental with his roles, the actor has given some of his most iconic performances in the romantic genre.
Over the years, Gosling has starred in countless films and shows and given a number of memorable performances. When we talk about Gosling and his films, one cannot forget La La Land and The Notebook. The two performances have been considered the most romantic roles Gosling has starred in. But what if we tell you that there is a film in which the Canadian actor has given his most profound performance?
What is the most romantic role by Ryan Gosling?
Coming from humble beginnings, Ryan Gosling stunned the entire world with his undisputed run of success. One of his first breakthrough roles was in the 2004 romantic drama The Notebook. Even after almost two decades after its release, The Notebook is considered one of the most romantic films to date. On the other hand, we have La La Land, another sad yet enjoyable film that further cemented Gosling’s legacy. However, one of the most heartbreaking performances by the actor is in the 2010 film Blue Valentine.
While The Notebook and La La Land left the fans in tears, they were ultimately heartwarming towards the end. However, Blue Valentine might go down as one of the saddest films made.
What is Blue Valentine about?
Directed by Derek M. Cianfrance, Blue Valentine circles around the life of Ryan Gosling as Dean and Michelle Williams as Cindy. The story takes you through the minds of the couple’s six years of marriage, exploring the birth, growth, and decay of their relationship.
