Eva Mendes' man grew up around women
Ryan Gosling has a huge female following – and perhaps it’s because he thinks like a girl.
The Hollywood heartthrob says he thinks his thought processes are more like a woman’s after spending lots of time with female family members when growing up.
I feel that I think like a girl, just through osmosis, really, living with my mom and sister,’ says Ryan, 32.
They talk so much. If you live in a house with just women when your brain is forming, well, I think my thought process became more similar to a woman’s.
I talk to my friends and I feel a connection. A lot of my friends grew up with single mothers.
And it’s like we communicate differently. I never spent a lot of time around a lot of guys.’
Ryan admits his youth wasn’t always easy – after appearing on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club for two years he was bullied at school.
He ended up being suspended after he retaliated.
I’d had a taste of this life, and it’s hard to go back to school and just be a kid,’ Eva Mendes‘ man tells Sunday Times Style.
You get into fights, you get called names, “You’re gay”, you’re just a target.’
