Playing EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Gosling Jokes He Provides the 'Feminine Energy' in Russell Crowe Bromance

Ryan Gosling is one charming man.

The Nice Guys star is a guest on BBC America’s late-night talk show, The Graham Norton Show, this week and the topic of conversation turned to his bromance with co-star Russell Crowe.

“Ryan attracts a lot of young women,” Crowe begins to say to cheers from the audience. “But he’s in a committed relationship, so, you know, if they need a shoulder to cry on, a father figure.”

Gosling proceeds to have a bit of fun at Crowe’s expense, joking that he is happy that there is female energy on the couch in the form of Jodie Foster.

“I’m just glad Jodie’s here honestly because we need a little feminine energy up in this situation,” the 35-year-old actor says of his dynamic with Crowe. “It’s been my job to provide that and I’m doing my best, but the well only goes so deep.”

“We’ve been through therapy. It’s been a long run,” Gosling playfully adds.

During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the Canadian actor -- who welcomed his second baby girl with longtime love Eva Mendes on April 29 -- shares a hilarious story about getting a rubdown that was clearly anything but relaxing.

"I had a horrible experience having a Turkish massage, where this guy's idea of a massage was to, like, take one leg and the other arm and try to connect it behind my back," Gosling explains. "His belly went into my mouth."

Gosling and Crowe will be guests on the The Graham Norton Show on Thursday, May 26 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
