Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds both attended the Critic’s Choice Awards in Santa Monica on Sunday and took the opportunity to pose for some photos that helped break the internet!
The Canadian heart throbs are often mistaken for each other. So much so that people have questioned whether they are in fact the same person. Well we are happy to report that they are in fact not! Both were nominated for Best Comedy Actor, with Reynolds taking out the award for “Deadpool.” He made an emotional speech after also winning the Entertainer of the Year award, dedicating the victory to the Make-a-Wish foundation and the Sick Kids Foundation of Toronto. “Two incredible organizations who do so much for so many kids in need,” he said.
In particular the award was in memory of two cancer victims, Connor McGrath and Grace Bowen. “They didn’t lose the battle, they started a fight and it’s up to us to finish it,” the Deadpool star said.
When the dapper duo met up during the commercial break for a quick chat it gave photographers the perfect opportunity to take a snap or 20.
Once the photos were released, Twitter went into a slight meltdown with the news that the two Ryans were finally standing side by side! Buzzfeed wrote that “our Ryan dreams came true,” while others took to Twitter to thank Canada for the moment.
Here are just some of the reactions form the twitterverse. Hey, you can’t blame people for getting excited over the budding bromance. I think their next move has to be starring in a movie together, don’t you think?
