Meryl Streep and Ryan Gosling once bonded over the latter’s mother. The Notebook actor is undoubtedly one of the most charming actors of all time. He has a close bond with his family as they often accompany him on his events and work, including the time his sister and mother joined him in getting his handprint cemented at the Chinese theater.
Gosling missed no chance to show appreciation for them. So when he attended the Oscars in 2007, the actor took his mother along, who dazzled in a beautiful attire that was completed with a hairstyle. The entertainer made an effort to make sure she knew that with the help of Meryl Streep.
How Ryan Gosling took Meryl Streep’s help for his mother
Ryan Gosling, who is a father himself, understands the love of a parent too well. So when he took his mother Donna to the Oscars, he made sure she would be appreciated for her efforts. During an interview on the Graham Norton Show, the host talked about how all the guests went to the Oscars with their parents and showed a picture of Gosling with his mom.
It prompted the actor to share an interesting story. The entertainer was sitting next to Devil Wears Prada actress Meryl Streep. The Barbie actor requested Meryl to compliment his mother on her hairstyle to make her night better. Joining in on his plans, the actress went up to his mother and said, “I was going to do a beehive and I wish I had…”
According to him, Donna’s friend suggested she style a beehive hairstyle for the event, claiming that it was in fashion. It was the opposite, since natural hair was the trend then. But sitting behind her was The Mummy actress Rachel Weisz, who struggled to see through the big beehive hair, which led to Gosling’s mother to sink into her chair.
Hence, the Canadian actor felt compelled to do something nice for his mother. A plan that Meryl Streep perfectly executed. Quite a heartwarming gesture, is it not? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
