Now: After hits such as "The Notebook" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love," Gosling's real-life leading lady Eva Mendes is the envy of women everywhere. We love his abs, his voice, his sexy smile, and, oh yes, his acting isn't half bad either! His next role will be in the 2014 drama from esteemed director Terrence Malick. The film also stars Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, and Natalie Portman. Until then, why not count the ways that you love him?
