Ryan Gosling is the heartthrob of our dreams.
The 36-year-old actor recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Friday, where he once again had the entire audience swooning. Joking that DeGeneres' greeting was lackluster compared to when she jumped into his arms the last time he appeared on her show, Gosling requested a do-over, and adorably cradled her as she kissed him on the cheek.
... Trust us, you just have to see it for yourself.
The notoriously private actor later opened up about his two daughters with longtime love Eva Mendes, 2-year-old Esmeralda and 7-month-old Amada. Gosling said that his girls are still too young to appreciate Christmas.
"I don't think she understands that you can ask for something just yet," he said, referring to Esmeralda. "It's a real sweet spot, where you give her anything, you know."
As for his highly anticipated new film, La La Land, Gosling talks about his chemistry with his good friend, Emma Stone, and joked about Stone's sweating problem that she revealed when she appeared on DeGeneres' show last month.
"I thought it was odd for the first two weeks when she was rehearsing in a wetsuit," Gosling cracked. "But she doesn't sweat all over -- she just a few very active sweat glands. It's like poking holes in a waterbed. It's just a few of them, so if you stay out of the way, you'll be fine."
Aside from all the singing and dancing, Gosling talked about impressively learning how to play the piano for his role as a jazz musician, and revealed he practiced "every spare second."
"The music in the film I think is really beautiful, so it was fun to learn how to play it," he noted.
