Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling has treated his pet dog a mohawk haircut to help him beat the summer heat.
The star showed off his newly-shorn pooch, George, during an appearance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday, insisting, "He's more interesting than I am."
George stirred up applause from the audience as he trotted out onstage with his punky new look.
Explaining the special do, Gosling said, "He insists on it... Ten years ago I shaved him a mohawk, just for the summer, and then every time it started to grow out, he turned into a total jerk. And then I shaved it back and he turned into a nice guy again."
The dog stayed by the actor's side throughout the entire interview, munching on pieces of apple.
