Truth be told, there are quite a few handsome Hollywood heavyweights named Ryan, but the two most beloved in the Great White North are Canada’s own Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds. As Google celebrates its 20 th birthday, they revealed to HELLO! which Ryan was the most searched in the past 20 years – and you may be surprised!
If you guessed the hunky star of The Notebook, you’re right! Ryan Gosling came out on top, leaving Blake Lively’s beau in a cool second place – which isn’t too shabby, either. When it comes down to what questions their fans were searching, it’s the same for both. The most popular asks of the actors were: how old are they, how tall are they and where are they both from. If you’re among them, Ryan Gosling is 37, reportedly 6 feet tall and hails from London, Ontario while Ryan Reynolds is 41, 6 feet 2 inches and was born in Vancouver.
The Deadpool actor’s adoring followers also seemed pretty interested in his Gossip Girl alum wife, Blake, with whom he shares two adorable kids – James, 3, and one-year-old Inez. Conversely, the La La Land star’s family is a source of mystery for fans as he keeps very mum on his personal life with partner Eva Mendes and their daughters, four-year-old Esmeralda and two-year-old Amada.
But regardless of who claimed first place, the two industry veterans are pumping out amazing movies, like Gosling’s recent Toronto International Film Festival premiere First Man , in which he portrays Neil Armstrong , the first man on the moon. Meanwhile, Reynolds has continued to make his fans keel over with laughter as the hilariously vulgar, revenge-seeking anti-hero Deadpool.
While Gosling also keeps a low profile by staying off social media, Reynolds and his wife enjoy keeping up appearances – even if Gosling can’t retaliate! Back in Oct., mother of two Blake took to Instagram to share a funny birthday message for her hubby by sharing a photo of the Ryans together, with her actual husband cut out. She captioned the practical joke: “Happy Birthday, baby.” But this wasn’t where the joke ended! For Blake’s birthday last year in Aug., he shared a photo wishing her the same, but with Blake mostly cut out. It’s never a dull moment for those two merry pranksters!
