Recently in conversation with the Evening standard, the “Nice Guys” actor Ryan Gosling talked about how he admires women, supported them and how he hopes for a next American president to be a woman.
As Ryan’s parents divorced when he was just a teenager, the actor is raised by his mother Donna and sister Mandi. In an interview, when the actor was asked that what percent of woman he was, the 35 year old actor said: “I’d say 49%, sometimes 47%, it depends on what day you catch me.”
He also told the London Evening Standard Magazine that “I’ve always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life has now been mostly women. “They are better than us. They make me better.”
As he has grown up in a female household and is a woman supporter, his fans have also created a feminist theory book for the actor, ‘Feminist Ryan Gosling’. The Canadian actor is the father of two beautiful daughters, one is 18 months old Esmeralda and the other one is a newborn Amada.
“I think women are better than men,” he said in the interview. “They are stronger. More evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.”
The actor also spoke on the important issue of men objectifying women, the male gaze and cheap looks at women.
“It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick,” Gosling said. “I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory; a hunt.”
