The ridiculously charming and talented Ryan Gosling has had one hell of a 2011. The Gos has seemingly banged out what seems like a 100 movies, hauled his scruffy dog George around the talk show circuit, kept the peace on NYC streets, and snagged a beautiful girlfriend – Eva Mendes. Gosling hasn’t been this hot since The Notebook, and it seems his star is only getting brighter. Hey girl, let’s all give ourselves a glorious gift this holiday season and recap the ways Gosling won our heart.
