Ryan Gosling: "Women Are Better Than Men"

In a recent interview with The Evening Standard, Ryan Gosling finally addresses his buzzed-about feminist beliefs that have—among other things—made Gosling the subject of female (and male) fantasies the world over. Although the Canadian actor has attempted to disassociate himself from those “Hey Girl” memes—courtesy of the Feminist Ryan Gosling Tumblr—he now joins forces with other influential men who have publicly announced their support for women (Mark Ruffalo and Ashton Kutcher, to name a few). In the ES interview, Gosling says, “ I think women are better than men. They are stronger. More evolved” and “It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the [objectification] stick.” Clearly, the actor is not afraid to speak out for equality. Let's hope that this kind of announcement becomes increasingly prevalent rather than something that happens so rarely that it makes for another news headline. In any case, way to go, Ryan; we couldn't agree more.
