One of the most-talked about elements of this year’s Golden Globes, because it was incredibly boring and nothing even happened at all during it, was the mysterious absence of Ryan Gosling. OUR BOY! How dare he? If we all have to watch the Golden Globes, Ryan Gosling at least has to go to them to make them slightly less bad for us to watch. THAT’S OUR DEAL! Was he sick, we wondered? Did something happen on the way to the show and now he’s lying in a beautiful ditch somewhere, waiting for someone to save him? Did he stay at Disneyland a little too long and decided that it wasn’t worth it to try to make it back in time, but really it’s like he kind of did it on purpose? No, none of those! I don’t think? George Clooney kind of has some light to shed on it all, from The Hollywood Reporter:

When Clooney, who nabbed the best actor in a drama statue for The Descendents, was asked backstage about Gosling’s whereabouts, he said, “He’s working, I think, in Thailand. He wrote me a nice letter, an e-mail, this morning,” before adding, “You know, he’s gotta work, he’s gotta earn a living, he’s a struggling actor.”

First of all, good one. Does this guy ever turn it off? Second of all, uhh, did you even read that letter email?! George! THIS IS IMPORTANT. What did the rest of the email say? Maybe if you let us know what the rest of it said we can piece together his whereabouts in DEFINITE terms. Are you sure he’s in Thailand? Are you just not sure if he’s working? If so, that’s a start. Do you know who he’s with? Is it a woman? IS IT EVA MENDES? George, you have to focus! Please just forward us the email. We’ll handle this one ourselves.

  1. Clooney was only seeding the Thailand story because he was hoping someone would ask him where in Thailand so that he could yell “BANGKOK!” and punch them in the junk. Prankster extraordinaire!

  2. Hahah struggling actor.

  3. The question mark on his face makes him look like a just-post-Dukes of Hazzard John Schneider. Weird, right?

  4. “Struggling” actor? Rephrase.

  5. disismyransomnote

  6. kelly begins playing out her alibi….

  7. Sure, George, sure.

  8. Little do we know, Ryan Gosling is currently living out the plot of Brokedown Palace.

  9. you guys, i figured it out! the entire existence of ryan gosling is 8 – 9 year long, slowly simmering prank that is going to end brad’s career!

  10. Ryan Gosling is a mormon. For some reason this is the only thing I find even remotely interesting about him. (covering my head from the deluge of incoming downvotes)

  11. Maybe Ryan Gosling thought he was too cool to show up for his award. it gives a sense of mystery or allure to him as a person or actor. Then again maybe he didn’t know he was actually going to win. You never know. But George Clooney’s a great friend for having Gosling’s back and informing us about his letter/e-mail.

  12. Again, he was too busy under my ball gown

  13. Kelly you are obviously not a real Ryan Gosling fan/stalker/whatever because then you would have KNOWN that Ryan IS in Thailand filming ‘Only God Forgives’ where he will be playing a British man that has to do some mixed martial arts for some reason or another.
    Eva Mendes is not there, trust me.
