So, we have no verification of this story, but every reason (and desire) to believe it: British journalist Laurie Penny tweeted last night that she was “LITERALLY” saved from being run over by a car in New York by Ryan Gosling.
“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened,” Penny wrote. “I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi.”
She wasn’t exactly sure it was famed street-fight-breaker-upper Gosling, but a woman next to her confirmed it, saying, “You lucky bitch.”
Penny is a writer for the New Statesman, The Nation, The Guardian and other reputable outlets, so she doesn’t sound like the type who would make this up.
Gosling was most recently snapped in L.A. with girlfriend Eva Mendes on Sunday after a movie shoot in Thailand, Celebitchy.com points out. But we’re all waiting for photographic proof that the actor is in New York to back up this story completely. And then get ready to see a whole lot of ladies in pink wigs feigning trouble crossing the streets of Manhattan.
