Ryan Gosling is not a Jew. Gosling is known for his roles in The Notebook, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Ides of March and Blue Valentine.
Gosling was born in London, Ontario. He is the son of Thomas Ray Gosling, a traveling salesman for a paper mill, and Donna, a secretary. Gosling's parents were Mormons and Gosling has said that the religion influenced every aspect of their lives. His parents divorced when he was a child and he and his older sister Mandi lived with their mother, an experience Gosling has credited with programming him "to think like a girl".
Gosling began performing at a young age and dropped out of high school at 17 to focus on acting. He has been nominated for and won many awards for his performances.
