By Björn Strauss
Hollywood – What a guy! Nobody kisses better than him: The prize for the “Best kiss award” went to him … men and women are attached Ryan Goslings (39) lips (and eyes). From the little “Mickey Mouse Club” -Bub ‘where he is with Justin Timberlake (39) and Britney Spears (38) performed as a child star, becoming a serious actor was a relatively short and ambitious path.
Director Jana Buchholz (including “Filmfrauen. Die Interviews” for ZDF) has made an expressive portrait of “Hollywood’s demigod Ryan Gosling” (that is the title), which also recently landed in the arte media library.
It’s a surprising and entertaining portrait of the actor, Golden Globe winner, and sex symbol: Ryan Gosling.
Are his smooth, beautiful face and six pack abs the reason for his worldwide success? The mega-hype went up steeply with the role as a romantic loner in “Like a single day”. From then on his unshakable career began.

Ryan Gosling is one of the most successful actors of our decade
Canadians have retained something that is rare in the multimedia age: their privacy. Hardly any private photos, hardly anyone knows that he was bullied at school and then tutored at home, that he played in a band in old people’s homes and that he was the producer of a film about albino children in Africa …
Until now! Because the film about Gosling allows close friends, colleagues and directors to have their say, all of whom portray him in a sympathetic manner.
He is not only considered a sex symbol, “but also a feminist”. Crucial scenes in his films show the extraordinary range of his skills and, above all, his special choice of roles.

He took the first notable step towards becoming a world star at the age of 19 when he played the Jewish neo-Nazi in “Inside a Skinhead”.
His breakthrough came as a romantic in “Like a single day”. And since “Drive” he has been one of the coolest and since “Crazy, Stupid, Love” one of the sexiest stars, according to director Jana Buchholz.
