High School Sweethearts Get 'Dying' Wish: Wed 75 Years, Died In
Even in death, they didn't part. And, that's the way a San Diego couple wanted it. It was their dying wish.

Seven years later, the couple was reunited, and, despite having taken radically d...

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

9/14/2011 11:00am EDT
Movie critics, driven to understandable cynicism by the onslaught of unnecessary remakes (there is no reason for another "Footloose") and re-imaginings of every superhero from the Green Lantern to a hammer-wielding Norse god, have declared the movie star extinct.  I think the stellar year actor Ryan Gosling, 30, is having is inspiring proof that the existence of the movie star in this entertainment climate is still possible. 

For this lover of pop culture, a movie star is more than someone who makes a lot of films and walks a lot of red carpets.  It’s Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Th...

Ryan Gosling often leaves autograph hunters "disappointed" because so many fans confuse him with Ryan Reynolds.

The Notebook star admits he is often mistaken for the fellow Canadian actor, and he fears many devotees feel let down when they realize he is not Reynolds.

He tells Interview magazine, "I get that a lot. I do think it's because we're both Canadian. I can't tell you how many times people go, 'Are you Ryan?' And I go, 'Yeah.'

Often times, weather plays an integral role in films, whether it be that it helps to set the tone, has symbolic significance, or makes a kissing scene all the more steamy, like the passionate lip-lock between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in "The Notebook" (2004), whose sexiness skyrocketed thanks to it taking place during a downpour. Sometimes the weather even takes on a life of its own, like in the film "Twister" (1996), in which the tornado acts as just as much of a protagonist as both Helen Hunt's and Bill Paxton's characters.

So now, with winter officially getting its frosty self...
