When Ryan Gosling took the stage to accept his Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, we all batted our eyelashes with adoration. What a hunk, right? And what could steal the thunder from the man, the meme, the legend as he accepted his rightful honors? A gay kiss, obviously.
Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling were up for the same award, best actor in the category. But when Reynolds lost to Gosling (controversial, yes), something magical happened. As Gosling made his way to the stage, Andrew Garfield and Reynolds locked lips. And we’re not talking about a causal smooch. Hell no. We’re talking full on, open mouth, man-on-man action. Yes, this was THE moment at the Golden Globes – if you don’t count the Queen Meryl Streep’s epic speech.
So what went went through these gentleman’s heads as they prepared for the kiss that aroused Hollywood? Let us take you there:
Ryan hand cupped Andrew’s brown, curling locks of hair, and he brought their faces closer. They could taste each other’s breath – cocktails and desire. The crowded room slipped away. Their eyes, locked in their own private moment, took them to a place far from the maddening crowds. It took them to a place called love. When their lips met – the rough, facial terrain of Ryan’s beard, the smooth, angular dimensions of Andrew’s chin – heaven was finally met.
It probably went something like that, right?
Anyway, Garfield went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to explain, and got into yet another passionate lip lock. What a slut. We love him.
Garfield told Colbert, “I just wanted Ryan to know that I loved him no matter whether he won or lost,” the Hacksaw Ridge star joked. “I just wanted him to know that it doesn’t matter [if you win or lose], it’s how you play the game. He showed up, he gave his all, it doesn’t change anything in my heart.”
