Welcome back, Ryan Gosling! After he was sorely missed in 2012, the "hey girl" Canadian returns to the big screen today as the star of Gangster Squad! His leading lady (at least in a professional manner) is Emma Stone, who plays his love interest in the film. This is Emma's second round with the heartthrob, and she compared kissing him in Crazy, Stupid, Love to smooching boyfriend Andrew Garfield. She said it was like "apples and oranges," but then added, "I love all fruit" — lucky girl! This got us reminiscing about all of Ryan's past smooches, including that infamous MTV Movie Awards make-out with Rachel McAdams. But Ryan doesn't just lock lips with his hot costars and ex-girlfriends. From guys to dogs to sex dolls, Ryan's Canadian lips get around, and we like it! So in honor of his return to the spotlight, pucker up and check out Ryan Gosling's best onscreen and offscreen kisses.
Last night it became clear that the boys of The Bachelorette are divided not just by age, but by who is or isn't making out with Emily Maynard. "Too perfect" single dad Doug, 33, and foot-in-his-mouth Ryan (who last night called Emily a "trophy wife"), 31, both bonded over their "mature" decision to not kiss Emily. But this high-horse strategy could backfire, since Emily wasn't too happy with Ryan for judging her for making out with Arie at last week's rose ceremony. She pointed out, rightly so, that there is a double standard, and if this was The Bachelor, no one would bat an eye at her making out with whoever she wants. In the pro-kiss camp are Sean, 28, and Arie, 30, who both take every opportunity they can to lock lips with the hot single mom. And it seems to be paying off — Emily has reservations about Doug and Ryan, but she's really into Sean and Arie.
There's one other front-runner fella who hasn't kissed Emily yet, and that's skateboarding entrepreneur Jef, 27. But Jef isn't abstaining on principle. As we see in this deleted scene, poor Jef chides himself for not making a move because he "wussed out." Hey Jef with one "f," we don't blame you for being intimidated by Emily, but she was clearly giving off the "kiss me" vibe. This is a sweet scene, though, and even with his poufy hair and tube socks, we think he could be a good match for Emily. What do you think about the bachelors' decisions to kiss vs. not kiss Emily? Is it better to get physical right away or wait till they know her better?
At the end of her cross-country ski race, Kate Middleton's sis Pippa Middleton got a cheeky surprise when a random guy ran up to her and gave her a kiss. Making men everywhere jealous, the lovebird in question Erik Smedhs said, "For having been skiing for 56 miles she was surprisingly fresh. I just thought it would be funny with all the commotion around her." While it's a pretty harmless and ballsy move on the fella's part, if you were in Pippa's shoes would you find a stranger planting one on your cheek flattering and cute or just a tad on the creepy side?
It's human nature to want to be close to the people we care about, but for the people we really love — well, it's hard to keep our hands off them! Valentine's Day is almost here, so keep reading to find out how all those extra hugs and kisses can benefit your health.
Another one bites the dust. Today Rick Perry announced that he's dropping out of the Republican presidential race, three days after Jon Huntsman withdrew. These latest campaign casualties join colorful candidate Michele Bachmann, who dropped out of the race earlier this month. So the remaining Republican presidential hopefuls include Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, and Newt Gingrich. And while the candidates have been fighting their way to the White House, they've been doing a whole lotta kissing as well. What is it about politics and locking lips? From babies to dogs to old women, all the candidates except hand shakers Ron and Newt have been smooching along the campaign trail (even good ol' Marcus Bachmann got in on the action). So kiss Rick and Jon goodbye with the best — and the worst — kisses from the Republican presidential candidates.
New Year's Eve is about good company, a little bubbly, and the highly anticipated countdown. While the midnight kiss is a NYE tradition, it shouldn't make or break the evening. Some might hunt down a man for a midnight kiss. While for others, the kiss is just a spontaneous happenstance. If you snagged a kiss last night, how did it happen? Did your guy friend finally confess his feelings or did a love interest make a move? Did you have a steamy, passionate kiss with a stranger? Did the lover in your life sweep you off your feet when the ball dropped?
New Year's Eve kisses can be hot and passionate, sweet and loving, or a complete disaster. You never know what to expect when you lock lips with someone new, which can be part of the thrill or part of the funny story to tell your girl friends the next day. Here's a quick rundown of seven kisses you might receive on New Year's Eve.
- A friend: Whether there is mutual, pent-up attraction or it catches you completely off guard, this kiss could be the key to knowing if you and your friend should take things to the next level (or if you should keep things platonic).
- A crush: If you've been eyeing someone for a while, now's the time to see if this lucky crush locks eyes (and lips) with you when the clock strikes.
- A random: It can be a hit or miss with a stranger, but avoid going for someone totally inebriated. There is a difference between a wild kiss and a vacuum.
