why i love ryan

I need to get more magazine subscriptions because the amount of joy I experience when my W arrives is pretty extraordinary.  But it was extra special this week when the lovely Michelle Williams and hottie Ryan Gosling were gracing the cover. They’re promoting their new film together, Blue Valentine (check out clip below). I’m a BIG fan of Gosling and have been ever since The Notebook. (I hysterically cry every freaking time I watch that movie!) Then this past summer, I played a waitress in a new comedy flick starring Gosling and Steve Carrell and my love grew. Watching Carrell and Gosling work was amazing and inspiring. They were both so nice to me and I even got to improv (for like 2 seconds) with Carrell on one take. Let’s pray, at least my “Here you go”, when I hand them their drinks stays in the flick. But even if my mug doesn’t make the cut, being on that set was pretty magical. Watching talented actors is what’s keeps me motivated. Keeps my eye on the prize. I love being an Actor and I can’t wait for the day I’m Co-Starring with Mr. Gosling himself. YES!
