Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin are each other's biggest fans

Last March, Ryan Gosling took statement T-shirts to the next level when he wore a top with Macaulay Culkin‘s face from his Home Alone days emblazoned across his chest.

Then a grown-up Macaulay returned the love by Tweeting a pic of himself sporting a T-shirt with a photo of Ryan wearing that T-shirt – before Ryan was spotted wearing a T with Macaulay‘s T-shirt tribute on. (Are you keeping up?! Check out the pictures in this week’s issue.)

The pair’s mutual admiration isn’t a new thing – these kindred spirits go way back.

Born just two months apart in 1980, Ryan and Mac came up through the Hollywood child-star ranks.

Now 33, it seems they’re still fans of each other. Aww.
