Ryan Gosling’s Accent Is All Over The Place

|

Since Ryan Gosling is from Canada, it’s peculiar that when he speaks publicly or on film, he sounds like he just arrived in a time machine from Brooklyn, 1939.

In fact, he credits his accent to Marlon Brando, telling W Magazine that, “As a kid I decided that a Canadian accent doesn’t sound tough. I thought guys should sound like [Brando]. So now I have a phony accent that I can’t shake, so it’s not phony anymore.”

While it comes and goes, it’s been around a lot recently, as evidenced in the Ryan Gosling Accent-O-Meter, a video compilation by Vulture that measures just how deep into Brooklyn Gosling will go.
