Getting Ryan Gosling to talk about his private life is no easy feat, but Good Morning America's Amy Robach was up for the challenge. Ryan appeared on the ABC show Thursday to promote his new movie, The Nice Guys, co-starring Russell Crowe. Right away, Amy asked about Ryan and Eva Mendes' 2-week-old daughter, Amada Gosling, who joins big sister Esmeralda Gosling, 20 months.
"I understand the girl-to-boy ratio in your house is now 3-to-1," Amy said. "How's that going?" Ryan decided to have a little fun with his answer, telling the news anchor, "It's heaven. It's like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels."
Taking the piss out of his co-star, he said, "It's a ray of sunshine in a dark time, because with Russell, really, it's sad. It's sad that we've turned out this way."
Coincidentally, Ryan plays a father in The Nice Guys. He stars as private detective Holland March, while Angourie Rice plays his daughter, Holly March. "She's incredible. It's one of her first films," Ryan said. "She was definitely the most mature person on set."
As for his onscreen chemistry with Russell, the 35-year-old actor joked that it's all an illusion. "It's a filter that they added in [post-production] later on. The same people that designed Gollum for Lord of the Rings went in and gave us chemistry. It's good. It works, right?" Ryan told Amy. "It feels real."
The Nice Guys is in theaters Friday.
