Ryan Gosling has come a long way since his days as a Mouseketeer. The 36-year-old star is an Academy Award nominee and one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood at the moment. Fresh off of the critically adored films The Nice Guys and La La Land, Gosling is also the star in the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. This sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner has been garnering rave reviews so far, and it looks like it will be another hit for Gosling.
Ryan Gosling’s Net Worth as of 2018: 30 million.
Gosling got his start as a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, alongside other future megastars such as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. As a child actor, he also had roles in the television shows Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Goosebumps. He later played the title character in the tv series Young Hercules, and later had a small role in the hit movie Remember the Titans.
Starting in 2001, Gosling would begin to masterfully transition from child actor to critical darling, with his performance as a Jewish neo-Nazi in the film The Believer. A few years later he appeared in the romantic drama the The Notebook, which cemented his status as a major heartthrob. In 2006 Gosling earned some of the best reviews of his career for his performance as a drug-addicted Middle School teacher in the film Half Nelson, culminating in his first Academy Award nomination, for best actor.
Following a well-received performance in 2007’s Lars and the Real Girl, Gosling took a hiatus from acting for a few years. Starting in 2010, he returned to Hollywood with a slew of performances in critically acclaimed films such as Blue Valentine, Drive, and The Place Beyond The Pines. During this period he would also star in the hit romantic-comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, in which his shirtless scene would further bolster his heartthrob credentials.
Gosling’s first effort as a movie director, 2014’s Lost River, was panned by critics and ended up being a rare black spot on his otherwise strong filmography. Fortunately, Gosling managed to rebound quickly. In 2015 he had a role in the ensemble film The Big Short, which went on to be nominated for Best Picture. In 2016, Gosling starred in the critically acclaimed buddy comedy The Nice Guys, from Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black, and earned his second Academy Award nomination for his role in La La Land alongside his Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Emma Stone. Next up, Gosling’s role in the long-awaited sequel to Blade Runner should further cement his status as one of Hollywood’s golden boys of the moment.
Ryan Gosling has slipped into numerous roles in the past, but this time he would be playing the role of Neil Armstrong on his upcoming movie titled ‘First Man’ based on the book with the same name.
