Ryan is listed at New York Times’ Vulture’s 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars list. He is ranked #37 at the Vulture Rankings, #55 at Studio Favorites, #9 at Tabloid Targets, #31 at Most Respected, #66 at International stars and #16 at Drama Stars. For more information on the ranking system be sure to read this article.

Thanks to my friend Claudia for sending me this link.

In that recent YouTube clip of Ryan Gosling breaking up a street fight, the two chatty girls manning the camera know that he’s famous, but they struggle to place him, until one remembers that he was in The Notebook. For all of Gosling’s cult and critical appeal these days, it’s important to realize that he’s still “The guy in The Notebook” to mass audiences, though he’s beginning to break through in a big way.

2011 was a particularly important year for Gosling, who had taken several years off from acting and studio movies in general: He channeled Steve McQueen cool in Nicolas Winding Refn’s stuntman actioner Drive; gave a solid performance in George Clooney’s political drama The Ides of March; and co-starred along with Steve Carell, Emma Stone, and his own abs in the rom-com Crazy, Stupid, Love, the first movie he’s made that actually outgrossed The Notebook. But does Gosling have any intention on becoming the studio star he could be? It’s true that he’s a part of the upcoming crime drama Gangster Squad (with Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, and Emma Stone again), but after that Oscar nod for 2006’s Half Nelson, it’s clear that his tastes run towards indie and will most likely continue to: Gosling’s next few projects include small-budget reunions with the directors of Drive and Blue Valentine, plus a Terrence Malick film. Sure, he’ll always inspire Internet lust and court the tabloids thanks to relationships with Sandra Bullock, Rachel McAdams, and Eva Mendes, but the only big tentpole he’s still remained attached to — a remake of Logan’s Run — has no foreseeable start date.

    These lists are bad. Only the “Most respected” makes some sense (though I would never pay a ticket to see Angelina Jolie acting). Channing Tatum and Tom Cruise before Ryan Gosling and the very talented Michael Fassbender at the bottom of the list? Seriously??? And where is Michelle Williams?
