Ryan Gosling ‘is so bad at emailing back,’ says Saoirse Ronan

He may have spawned countless Internet memes and tumblr fan pages, but Ryan Gosling isn’t particularly adept at using one of the web’s most basic forms of communication – email.

The Atonement star Saoirse Ronan, who starred in Ryan’s directorial debut Lost River, says the Canadian actor “never emails anyone back” after she was asked by MTV if she’d heard from the handsome star recently.

“Well I only heard the other day, from ‘The Gos,’” she confessed.

“I have his email. He never emails anyone back. He’s so bad at emailing back, but he did email me the other day. I felt really lucky to receive his words.”

One can forgive Ryan, 34, for being a tad out of touch lately. No doubt the new dad has a lot on his plate, having welcomed his first child, daughter Esmeralda, with Eva Mendesin September.

“Ryan is madly in love with the baby,” an insider said at the time, adding that Eva, 40, is loving being a mother.

The London, Ont. native is also preparing to release Lost River in North American theatres after it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last May.

“He’s very excited about it,” 20-year-old Saoirse said. “I don’t think I can say anything about it yet, but people will get to see it sooner rather than later. And the poster is really cool for it. Go and see it for the poster alone.

Despite his lack of emailing prowess, the Irish actress nonetheless said it was a very positive experience working with the Canadian heartthrob.

“He’s great. the best. He's very, very honest and self-assured; very confident and comfortable with who he is,” she previously told Refinery29.
