Quotables: George Takei Is, For Once, Wrong

2/7/2014 1:00 PM PST, by
"I don't know what all this hoo-ha about Ryan Gosling is about. He's more often boring than not. I mean, he's an all right actor, but I don't think he's as gripping and compelling as people like Matt Damon or George Clooney."

--National treasure George Takei sullies his perfect reputation (just a tiny bit) by denying the majesty that is Ryan Gosling.

Honestly, all George is saying here is that he's never seen "The Notebook" or heard Ryan talk about Disneyland. That's all this is. If George had done those things, he would never again have to wonder about the "hoo-ha." He would know in his heart that Ryan Gosling is a beautiful gift sent to an undeserving world. He would know that of course you can't compare him to Matt Damon and George Clooney (give him a few years on that one, all right?), but you don't have to, because Ryan has a magic all his own. And seriously, have you heard how cute he is when he talks about Disneyland?!

We love you forever, George, but this? This just isn't right.

He's spot on with that comment. He's been around enough to know a thing or two. I'm with George. If he hasn't seen The Notebook, all the more power to him. There's an hour and half of his life he never wasted sleeping.

We are All entitled to our own opinion, even him, however, WRONG he is. He is certainly NO JUDGE of any kind of acting. It has become difficult to even enjoy the old Star Treks when he appears on camera and try and forget the real kind of obnoxious narcissist. Don't mean to be 'mean', but just in response to his continued disgusting comments, he is merely a Mean Spirited Ugly Person.

He's completely correct..
Gosling is a bland talentless actor who is repeatedly cast in roles where he can be a bland talentless actor...

Eff The Notebook, I hate that film!
Ryan is a good actor, and he's moderately handsome, but that's all. He reminds me way too much of my brother in law.

I don't get the big WHOOOOPIE about Ryan either. He isn't that great looking and he is quite boring!
