Because it wasn’t enough that Ryan Gosling is handsome, talented, charming, sophisticated, and has the most adorable mohawked dog in the world, but now he’s upping the ante by literally saving a woman’s life after she stepped in front of a taxi in New York City. Which, if you didn’t know, is basically like wearing a honey and salmon suit while kicking a grizzly bear in the taint. Jezebel reports:
A British woman named Laurie Penny tweeted this a little while ago: I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened.
Ahhh! She then explained a bit more about how she ended up in traffic: I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi. And then she added this precious detail, “He did not say ‘hey, girl.’ He said ‘hey, watch out!'”
I’ll admit, at one point I asked “Wait, why was she wearing a new pink wig?” and then I remembered that this is New York City, where one of the city’s fixtures is an underwear-clad hippie playing a guitar. So yeah, pink wigs kind of make sense in the back drop of crazy. But good on Ryan for saving a woman’s life, and good on Laurie for getting to be saved by Ryan. Lucky!
