It looks like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t the only proud feminist from Canada.
In a recent interview with Evening Standard, Ontario native Ryan Gosling shared just how in touch he is with his feminine side, which typically ranges from “49 per cent, sometimes 47 per cent” depending on what day you catch him.
Gosling was raised primarily by his mother and older sister, has always been surrounded by women –surprise! – and says that he’s always liked them more.
“I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better,” he says.
Whether he was singing at a local wedding and swooning the female guests or charming an audience of young girls while performing as a teen, Gosling always had the attention of females.
It’s this constant attention that helped shape the way he sees and interacts with women today.
“I think women are better than men,” he said to ES. “They are stronger, more evolved.”
Gosling, who has two daughters with Eva Mendes, explained that he’s noticed this strength at home with his own kids. “You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages,” he said. “They are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.”
He also revealed that he’d like to see a lady president in the White House, saying, “I think it needs a woman’s touch.”
Hey, girl, indeed.
