Hey girl, Ryan Gosling thinks you make the world better.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, the 35-year-old actor said, “I think women are better than men” because they are “stronger” and “more evolved.”
Growing up close to his mother and sister, Gosling saw the objectification of women from early on.
“It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick,” he said. “I grew up with women, so I’ve always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory; a hunt.”
Now that he’s had two daughters with actress Eva Mendes, he’s even more aware of the differences.
“You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately,” he said.
He’s also proven that he’s not afraid of femininity, telling the magazine that he is about 47 or 49 per cent woman, depending “on what day you catch me.”
The actor even weighed in on the American presidency, adding that “America needs a woman’s touch.”
“I’ve always liked women more,” he said. “I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better.”
