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):
6. OK, at this point, you're just rubbing it in, Eva Mendes:
9. Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn:

More specifically: the top of Rooney Mara's head.

(Though really, we'd be fine being Ryan Gosling here too.)
13. Rachel McAdams:
17. Rachel McAdams in movies or in real life.
18. Basically, we just want to be Rachel McAdams. Always.
23. This sleeveless vest:
Warner Bros. Pictures
And we never want to be a fedora.
25. This teardrop tattoo:
Emphasis on pumping. Winky winky.
27. These boxing mitts:
Thelonius / Splash News
Hmmm, maybe that's too weird. Maybe we don't want to be that baby.
32. The crayon that gets to color this coloring book page:
I LOVE MEL
33. Did we mention Rachel McAdams?
We'll swap places with any of the above. That is our birthday present to Ryan Gosling.
