Ryan Gosling was born in Canada 33 years ago today. Little did anyone know at the time that he would grow to become the most beautiful man ever. And also a good actor.

Sometimes Ryan Gosling makes us want to be a better person. Sometimes he just makes us want to be someone else. To celebrate his day of birth, here are 33 people and things that we want to switch places with:

1. Emma Stone (in 2011):
