Ryan is one of the men who made it onto AskMen’s Most Influential Men of 2012 list. He lists #25 at the UK list and #10 at the US list. Other names include President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Daniel Crag and many more.

Ryan Gosling is a force to be reckoned with, even when he doesn’t have a single movie out. Hot off 2011, when the actor had three monumental starring roles, Gosling cooled it down in 2012. But we’re still feeling the heat from this wisecracking style icon, who makes us pay attention even when he’s just a glimmer on TMZ. We were anticipating Gosling’s turn as a tough cop battling the mob in Gangster Squad, but the Colorado theater shooting sent that movie (which featured a theater shooting of its own) into 2013 and Gosling back on set for reshoots. Gosling made an appearance at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere his new indie movie, The Place Beyond the Pines. In it, he plays a motorcycle stunt driver who robs banks, a character based on the actor’s own fantasies of performing hold-ups on a bike. You’ll be seeing that, along with Gosling’s directorial debut, pretty soon.

This is what the archetypal modern leading man looks like. In 2012 he’s set the world alight on many fronts, even though, unbelievably, he’s only been in one film (The Place Beyond the Pines – no, us neither). So why does he merit a place on this hallowed list? Because like Lord Lucan, his legend only increases when he goes missing. His contradictory character – brooding but funny, handsome but bashful, hard-nut but tender – has contrasted so dramatically with the swirling mass of other, less interesting and less charismatic stars that we find ourselves talking about him even more. We await the delayed underworld epic Gangster Squad with baited breath.
