Ryan Gosling saves journalist Laurie Penny from cab

Posted on

With great handsomeness comes great responsibility. In his ongoing quest to clean up the streets of New York, one fist fight and vehicular manslaughter at a time, Ryan Gosling has now saved a woman’s life. British journalist Laurie Penny tweeted about a harrowing near-death, nearer-to-dreamboat incident yesterday. She was wearing a pink wig and Gosling was wearing… It’s hard to know where to start. Penny wrote,

“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened. 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. He did not say ‘hey, girl.’ He said ‘hey, watch out!’ Identity of no-idea-if-actually-a-manarchist-but-definitely-a-decent-sort Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said ‘you lucky bitch.'”

One downside: According to Penny, Gosling was wearing “double denim.” Then again, every Clark Kent needs his own version of horn rims to keep his superhero identity under wraps.

Just 11 hours later, Penny realized the perils of a close encounter of the Gosling kind when she was deluged with phone calls and e-mails. She tweeted, “EVERYBODY NEEDS TO CALM DOWN ABOUT RYAN GOSLING NOW.”

Hey girl, you started it.

For real now, Ryan Gosling: What can’t this man do?
