Fans have fawned over Ryan Gosling since his romantic turn in The Notebook. He hasn’t had a break since.

Ahead of his upcoming movie The Nice Guys, Gosling appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the movie, his new baby, and the ubiquitous “Hey Girl” meme. But before things kicked off, DeGeneres made a plea to her employees: leave him be.

“My staff is very excited that he’s here,” she said. “I told them to be on their best behavior, do not bother him. He’s a regular person, just more beautiful than everybody else.”

DeGeneres throws it backstage to see how things are going for Gosling. He nitpicks on his lamp and plant, which are people in disguise.
