Mutual Canadian appreciation! Justin Bieber didn’t try to hide his obsession with Ryan Gosling on Instagram on Tuesday.

The “Sorry” singer, 22, posted two photos of the heartthrob from his 2012 film The Place Beyond the Pines to his Instagram account. Both pics had the caption, “What a beast.” (No arguments here!)

In one shot Gosling, 35, who starred in the flick alongside girlfriend Eva Mendes, is feeding a baby and in another he is posing in front of a motorcycle.

The Biebs didn’t explain his fan-boy moment, but both men hail from Canada and were born in London, Ontario -- so perhaps there is some hometown love?

The GRAMMY winner returned to his homeland this week for the Purpose World Tour. He has two shows in Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday night before taking almost a month off from the road. Justin recently had to cancel his shows in Argentina due to “legal conditions.”

"If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you," he tweeted earlier this week. "Argentina I do love you. It is in fact one of my favorite places to tour. I wish this was not the case. My lawyers say it is what it is."

An arrest warrant for the singer was issued by an Argentinian judge in 2013 after he allegedly asked his bodyguards to attack a photographer outside a nightclub.
