Ryan Gosling has wooed everyone from The Notebook costar Rachel McAdams to Murder By Numbers' Sandra Bullock. He's stolen the hearts (if for only a rumored minute here and there) of Eva Mendes, Blake Lively and Michelle Williams. People magazine named him one of the 50 Hottest Bachelors in 2004. And one look at the Independent Spirit Awards winner's six-pack abs, and it's not hard to see why the ladies fall for Ryan's brand of crazy, stupid love.

Despite his fickle heart, our Blue Valentine has largely avoided the bad boy label. Maybe it's the fact that he got his start as a Mouseketeer. Yep, a Mouseketeer.

In fact, Ryan lived with Justin Timberlake's family for two years while the future heartbreakers performed together on the Mickey Mouse Club.

After doffing the mouse ears and taking on TV parts, including roles on Breaker High and Young Hercules, Gosling landed his breakout role in The Believer in 2001.

Known for his intensity and commitment, Gosling's career has taken off almost as successfully as his love life. He earned acclaim for his role in the quirky Lars and the Real Girl and has proven himself to be one of the most commanding actors of his generation.

The Half Nelson star is also a musician whose band, Dead Man's Bones, released its self-titled debut album and toured North America in 2009. The Canadian-born hunk also added restaurant manager and philanthropist to his growing list of hyphenates.

But perhaps Gosling's best-known title will remain (for some time, anyway) Ladies' Man.
