One of the best examples of off-the-charts on-screen chemistry in recent silver screen history is between Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone and Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling, who have starred in three movies together to date: 2016’s La La Land, 2013’s Gangster Squad and 2011’s Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Each time these two award-winning actors star opposite each other it’s swoon-worthy; even just thinking about their star-crossed relationship in La La Land tugs at the heartstrings.
And it seems 29-year-old Stone feels that way too, during a Q&A session at the Telluride Film Festival where her new film The Favourite is screening, Entertainment Tonight reports she got quite emotional when talking about the Blade Runner 2049 star, calling Gosling a “dear, wonderful friend,” and saying, “I can’t even imagine what my life would be without Ryan.”
The Battle of the Sexes star gushed further, saying, “He’s so special. It makes me emotional. He’s so talented but he’s such a great person to work with because he’s so collaborative and excited about the process. He’s taught me a lot about being really generous.”
At the festival Stone was honoured for her outstanding work in film with a silver medal presented to her by La La Land’s Oscar-winning director, Damien Chazelle.
Chazelle’s new Ryan Gosling-starring film, First Man, had its first screening at the festival, however, Gosling wasn’t in attendance to hear all the delightful words Stone had to say about him. Entertainment Tonight reports the 37-year-old attended his mother’s wedding vow renewal ceremony instead.
In honour of one of the greatest on-screen couples in recent history, we round up some of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's cutest on-screen moments.
