Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling have often been constantly compared by fans. But what exactly do the two actors have in common? Let’s find out.
Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling are two of the most famous actors currently in Hollywood. They are bankable blockbuster movie stars, and their films, if calculated together, have grossed billions of dollars.
However, the pair differ in what they bring to their on-screen persona. While Reynolds dazzles fans with his comical performances and sense of humor, Gosling is more famous for his dramatic performances.
The actors have been taking over the screens for years, and both have become household names in the industry. Although they haven’t appeared in a film together, Reynolds and Gosling seem connected in other ways.
Since their fame, the actors have often drawn comparison conversations. Other times they even get confused for each other. In April, fans got to see new images of the upcoming movie “The Gray Man” starring Gosling.
The movie is one of Netflix’s most anticipated movies of 2022 and the most expensive ever made by the company, with a budget of $200 million. With a star-studded cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and Llyod Hansen, Gosling stars as Court Gentry, a skilled CIA mercenary.
However, while announcing and posting pictures of the movie, a news outlet News18.com mistakenly credited Reynolds instead of Gosling. True to his comical persona, Reynolds jokingly accepts he had become a part of the cast rather than correct the mistake.
This type of mistaken identity between the two has become a regular occurrence and an ongoing joke in the industry. Following that tide, here are all the similitudes between the two.
