It isn’t every day that a celebrity is spotted casually walking around Kensington Market (Rachel McAdams not withstanding), but yesterday Ryan Gosling went on a solo shopping mission through Toronto’s vintage district. Fan boys and girls rejoiced, and many wished they had gone out yesterday to browse like-new caftans and polyester party dresses. Gosling is home in Canada after starring in a string of potentially okay films, including the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid Love, in which he appears shirtless. Whether he’s shirtless or shirt shopping, a Gosling sighting is always worth note. There’s likely a man or woman at Exile today, sniffing the cowboy shirts for a whiff of Goz. Rumour has it the star capped his evening at West Queen West’s The Beaconsfield.
