Poor Ryan Gosling. He's one of the most popular actors on the planet (or at least on the Internet), and yet he usually plays such a lonely boy.
Sure, Gosling has had his share of companions, lovers and even wives in his movies, but for the most part he's made a career at playing the rugged loner, the lone wolf who walks (or drives) the earth with only very few "friends" ... if you can even call them that half the time.
Upon the release of "Only God Forgives," in which his only pal is a prostitute (natch), we've tallied the number of friends perennial loner Ryan Gosling has had in some of his other films (via a "Gosbook" interface, of course): "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2012), "The Ides of March" (2011), "Crazy Stupid Love" (2011), "Drive" (2011), "Blue Valentine" (2010), "Lars and the Real Girl" (2007), "Half Nelson" (2006), "The Notebook" (2004), "United States of Leland" (2003), "Murder by Numbers" (2002) and "The Believer" (2001).
