Is it possible that Ryan Gosling looks even cuter as a director?

The hunky Hollywood star was caught on set of How to Catch a Monster in Detroit, Mich., but instead of doing his usual thing in front of the camera, Gosling was behind the scenes, making his directorial debut. 

And it looked like things were going well, since The Gos was snapped flashing a bright smile—that, or he was making lovey-dovey faces at his girlfriend Eva Mendes, who is also in the film.

Mad Men's Christina Hendricks stars in the fantasy flick, which centers on a single mother of two (Hendricks) named Billy, who lives in a vanishing city and is brought into a dark underworld when her son discovers a road that leads to an underwater village and one exciting adventure.

The actress was very flattered to be given the role, and exclaimed during an interview with Flare magazine that she doesn't want to let Gosling down. "[Ryan] called me and asked me if I was interested in doing this film, and I said: 'One, of course, yes, and two, why me? And three, I don't want to disappoint you. It's the largest role I've ever had, so this is one I'm definitely aware of my anxiety about."

She added, "You don't want to disappoint the people who have put their trust in you."

Especially if that person is, you know, Ryan Gosling.
