SPOTTED! Ryan Gosling needing a Kensington Market shopping companion

Snaps of Goz in TO from Just Jared and Pop Sugar

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.

    “Blue Valentine” was a real piece of work. Ryan displayed such talent, which is nothing unusual for him. Williams was a perfect match for him in the movie. I would love to see them work together again sometime.

    Yes, he was incredible in Blue Valentine. He was So overlooked at Oscar time since he should have been nominated for his role and even won. That DVD comes out in May and I can’t wait!
