Canadian actor and heart-throb Ryan Gosling was born in 1980 and got his first break in 1993 when he auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club.

For two years he starred alongside Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera, and Ryan described this stint as the greatest two years of his life. He then went on to appear in various TV shows before moving to Hollywood aged 19 to pursue what he called "serious acting".

His first lead role was as a young Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001's The Believer which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. It was film that Ryan has said "gift-wrapped for me the career that I have now".

Ryan found international fame in 2004 with The Notebook, an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel which co-starred Rachel McAdams. It performed well at the box office and the two co-stars began dating in 2005.

By 2007 Ryan had gained his first Academy Award nomination for his work in Half Nelson, and went on gain his first Golden Globe nomination for Lars and The Real Girl.

Ryan then took a small break but returned in 2010 and 2012 with five films, explaining that making movies "was so emotional and taxing. But I’ve found a way to have fun while doing it. And I think that translates into the films".

Blue Valentine with Michelle Williams, All Good Things, Crazy Stupid Love with Emma Stone, The Ides of March, and Drive all received critical acclaim, and Ryan garnered two more Golden Globe nominations for his work in Crazy Stupid Love and The Ides of March.

Drive saw the beginning of Ryan's work in action films, and he later went on to star in The Place Beyond The Pines and Only God Forgives.

In 2014 Ryan premiered his directorial debut, Lost River, at Cannes Film Festival which co-starred his partner Eva Mendes. The pair revealed in September that they had welcomed a baby girl, Esmerelda Ameda.

Ryan regularly works with PETA to highlight animal cruelty.
