Ryan Gosling Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Canadian-born actor, writer, musician and director Ryan Thomas Gosling is better known simply as Ryan Gosling – a world-famous actor with a staggering net worth estimated to be in excess of $30 million. Throughout his career, Gosling has featured in countless films and television productions – from the Fox Kids adventure series “Young Hercules” through to his unforgettable breakout performances in the 2004 romantic drama film “The Notebook” directed by Nick Cassavetes and also starring fellow Canadian actress Rachel McAdams, and Ryan Fleck’s 2006 drama “Half Nelson”.

Gosling has won numerous awards for his acting, such as four Teen Choice Awards and an MTV Movie Award for “The Notebook”, and he has been nominated for many others – including even an Academy Awards nomination for Best Actor for Gosling’s role in “Half Nelson”. Together, these successes have done much to ensure that Gosling’s net worth continues to grow, and that he remains famous as one of the world’s best contemporary actors.

Ryan Gosling Net Worth $30 Million

Ryan Gosling began acting from a very young age. Born on 12 November, 1980 in the city of London in Ontario, Canada, Gosling has been quoted attributing his decision to become an actor to seeing the 1945 action film “Dick Tracy” as a child. Between his parents’ divorce and being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Gosling had a difficult childhood, bullied at school and facing trouble fitting in with other children – and performing was the one way he could get away from all of that. Thus, it was not surprising that Gosling was eager to act, and in 1993, he managed to land his first acting job at the early age of twelve – as one of the “mouseketeers” in Disney Channel’s “Mickey Mouse Club”, where he appeared alongside such future stars as Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Though the show was cancelled after two years, Gosling would go on to a career as a professional child actor in various television series, such as “Goosebumps” and “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” Gosling’s early fame certainly did a lot to set him up for his later career, and gave his net worth a considerable boost.

At the age of seventeen, Ryan Gosling finally quit school to focus on acting. In 1998, the eighteen year old Gosling moved to Los Angeles to feature as the lead actor in the adventure series “Young Hercules” – but he soon decided to move on from television. Gosling’s goal was to appear on the big screen, and he would go on to star in the 2001 drama film “The Believer”. Gosling received critical acclaim for his acting, making it clear he had found his ticket into the film industry. Over the next couple of years, Gosling would appear alongside Sandra Bullock in the psychological thriller “Murder by Numbers” – and would finally break through as a world-famous star after his 2004 success in Nick Cassavetes’ romantic drama “The Notebook”. Since then, Gosling’s net worth has continued to grow at a startling pace as he appeared in various successful productions such as the marital drama “Blue Valentine” together with Michelle Williams and the 2011 romantic comedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love” alongside Steve Carell and Emma Stone.

How rich is Ryan Gosling? Currently, Gosling’s net worth is believe to be well in excess of $30 million, with some sources claiming $36 million, and other estimates going as high as $50 million. Much of this is due to Gosling’s long and successful career as one of the world’s most famous actors. Another contribution to Gosling’s net worth is his recent debut in film direction with the 2014 neo-noir film “Lost River”.

Today, Ryan Gosling lives in New York. Gosling is a founding member of the indie rock band “Dead Man’s Bones”. He also remains actively involved with various charities – including PETA and Invisible Children Inc.

#Quote
1 I think women are better than men. They are stronger. More evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.
2 I can't tell you how many times people go, "Are you Ryan?" Then they take the picture and realize, in that moment, that I'm not Ryan Reynolds.
3 It feels like not that long ago that I was on a show called Young Hercules (1998) in which I had a fake tan and wore tight leather pants and fought imaginary monsters.
4 [on his role as Luke in The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)] He's the motorcycle equivalent of a boy band doing some low-level carnival circuit. He's kind of a melting pot of every masculine cliché with his tattoos, muscles and guns.
5 I'm really not good at knowing what people want, because don't have that talent. If ever I try to predict, I'm sure I will be instantly humbled.
6 [on some apprehension about undertaking the role of film director] When you're a director there's no place to hide. You're completely exposed. When you're the actor, you can say, 'Well, it's the character', or 'I didn't write it', or 'I didn't direct it, cut it, score it. I didn't make that poster'. You can hide behind a lot of things. Whereas, as a filmmaker you're responsible for everything.
7 [2013] I've been doing it too much. I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.
8 [on playing a bank robber in The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)] I fantasized about robbing banks for a long time, ever since I was a kid. Then, telling Derek [Cianfrance] that I'd ever I could rob a bank I'd do it on my motorcycle, and he said 'That's weird, I just wrote a script about that'. It just felt meant to be. He said that I was going to get to rob the bank for real. There would be no cuts, real people in there, real tellers. I'm going to get to ride the bike up, rob it, and ride the bank away. I was very excited.
9 I thank God for music. It's made me a better actor. I think acting has made me a better musician. Now, I come into a scene and I think "This guy's playing the beat." You're trying to figure out what the other actors are doing in terms of, like, Michelle Williams's got the baseline on this. And this guy's playing the drums. And this person wants the guitar solo on this song, so I'll just play some synth line. You have to figure out what your part is in the dynamic. So you're filling in a space. You're not all trying to be the lead singer.
10 When I'm down in the dumps, nothing gets my toes a-tappin' like putting on my old M.C. Hammer pants. And they still fit, even though my aunt made them for me when I was eight. But that's the genius of M.C. Hammer. They still fit me though I've grown significantly. I'll never know how M.C. Hammer got into money problems. Genius.
11 [on becoming famous] I don't know what to say about fame. I've been doing this since I was eight, so I can't really say that it came out of nowhere. But I can't say that I saw it coming either. My friend's grandmother would soak a lobster in vodka, get it good and drunk before she put it in the pot to cook it. Then she'd turn the heat up real slow. That lobster never knew what hit him.That's kind of how it's gone down for me. Except in my story, I guess I'm the old lady AND the lobster.
12 There's no way that a film can capture the experience of making it... The thing that's so exciting when you're making a film is that it can be anything and there are no limitations on it.
13 I think the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy whenever and wherever I want.
14 [on Drive (2011) director Nicolas Winding Refn] I was very ill, and we were sitting there not really able to communicate. He looks at me with tears in his eyes, and he starts singing at the top of his lungs and hitting his knees, and he says, 'I know what this movie is, it's a movie about a guy who drives around listening to pop music because it's the only way he can feel.'
15 [on being recognized in public] You just have to hang out in places that are more interesting than you are. It has a weird effect on people. The experience of recognizing you puts them into some kind of trance where they think they know you but they don't. They start sharing with you, and it gives you this intimacy that's very rare.
16 [on the possibility of directing] You can't act forever. Some people manage, but they're the marathon runners. You have a shelf life as an actor, so you have to find another way to express yourself.
17 [on working with directors Derek Cianfrance and Nicolas Winding Refn] I found my guys I got a team I know. We're just getting started.
18 The writing was on the wall when I saw Rocky (1976) for the first time. I went and picked a fight right afterwards and got my ass kicked. The movies took me into their dream.
19 [on Drive (2011)] I guess I wanted to make a superhero movie, but all the good ones were taken. This was the opportunity to create one.
20 I always wanted to make a violent John Hughes movie. I love John Hughes movies. I love Pretty in Pink (1986). But I always thought if there were head-smashing in it it'd be a better movie.
21 [on choosing film roles] There's always those 'Blair Witch Projects' that haunt you. The idea that you could make a little movie, and you could make it the way you want to make it, and people will still want to see it. People will want to see it for what it is, not for the way it's marketed.
22 [on Drive (2011) director Nicolas Winding Refn] I don't think that Nicolas believes that art and entertainment are mutually exclusive. He doesn't limit himself. If he were a baseball player, it's like he walks up to the plate [and] points out a home run before he swings. He may not hit a home run, but that's the only thing he's hoping for. He's got guts. And also, he loves exploitation films and genre movies as well as art films.
23 [After Blue Valentine (2010)] I had to go to the doctor for a physical and when I left he gave me a prescription. he wrote, 'Do a comedy'.
24 [on Blue Valentine (2010)] In most movies you spend so much time looking for any scraps of truth, and in this movie you're just marinating in it.
25 I try not to make to many movies. I get sick of myself, so I can imagine how everyone else feels.
26 I don't really like doing interviews because I don't have any answers about why I act. It's like a compulsion. It's like people who eat and eat and eat and they don't know why and they keep getting fatter but they can't stop. It's like that.... And then you find yourself on a set throwing yourself off a bridge, and you're asking yourself, 'Why am I doing this?' And I don't know.
27 [on working on independent films] - Not to discriminate against budgets, I feel that independent films tend to ask more questions and don't pretend to know as much as the bigger films, which tend to think they know everything.
28 I mean, God bless The Notebook (2004), it introduced me to one of the great loves (Rachel McAdams) of my life. But, people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.
29 (On this acting hero) Gene Wilder is my Marlon Brando. Gene Wilder will break your heart and make you laugh at the same time. And that's deep. There's something really profound about what he's able to do. It's transcendent. It's everything. He gives you everything at once and you have to decide what you feel about it.
30 All my characters are me. I'm not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think 'I wonder what that feels like'. Because for me, they're all me. I relate to these characters because aspects of their personality are like me. And I just turn up the parts of myself that are them and turn down the parts that aren't.
31 There is this idea in Hollywood, and I've seen it work for people, where the unspoken rule is 'Do two for them and one for yourself.' And that's kind of considered a fact. I've never really found that to be true for me. I've gotten more opportunities out of working on things I believed in than I ever did on things that weren't special to me.
32 I understand the studios, in the sense that if they're going to spend $100 million on a film, they want to make sure they're gonna get that back . . . but I don't know how to guarantee you you're going to make that money back, and I'm uncomfortable working with those kind of numbers.
33 The theme for me is love and the lack of it. We all want that and we don't know how to get it, and everything we do is some kind of attempt to capture it for ourselves.
34 I think American news is pretty tragic in general. I can't tell the difference between Entertainment Tonight (1981) and the news. It's all about ratings. They are trying to sum it all up pretty quickly and try to act as if they understand it.
35 For now, I'm just going to keep doing the work and hope I don't get fired. If people want to put me up on their walls, I'll love it.
36 I also think that something interesting comes out when you do something that you're afraid of, so I try to take things that I'm not sure that I can do. And this was certainly one of them. I didn't feel like I was right for this at all, and I wondered how to find truth in a fairy tale.
37 It's nice to be around people that have a sense of the world around them, that are, in general, more conscious and conscientious. It was important for me to get an outside look at America even though I grew up in Canada, it's an incredible country and I love it, but it's so close. It's like being too close to a Monet or something. You have to move back. Going to New Zealand helped me to get a read on this place that the whole world was obsessed with.
38 You know how sometimes department stores have these things where, if you win, you get 10 minutes and go in and take anything you want from the store? That's basically what I'm doing. I'm running in and just trying to grab as many characters as possible before they pull the plug on me.
39 I always wanted to entertain. When I was 6, a scrawny, scrawny kid, I'd get in my red speedo and do muscle moves. I actually thought I was muscular. I didn't know everyone was laughing at me.
40 I've learned it's important not to limit yourself. You can do whatever you really love to do, no matter what it is.
