Well, WTF is true, then?

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling have a movie coming out, so you know BuzzFeed is up in there with the synergy. They’re making little “couples therapy” shorts, and this one delves deep into the Internet treasure chest of Gosling merch. Most of the many, many items are emblazoned with Gosling’s most famous non-quote. “Hey, girl.

Despite what it’ll do to Girls everywhere, Gosling insists on debunking the meme, “I never said it. I understand if you’re in a movie, and you say, ‘You complete me’ or ‘I’m just a girl standing in front of a guy,’ and that follows you around, then you gotta own it. But I never said it.”

And yet, the phrase “hey girl” immediately conjures an image of baby blues and incomparable charisma. As to being labeled a feminist, Gosling says, “Feminist? That’s a title you’ve gotta earn. I never burned a bra. I’m not even a good person. I don’t even compost, man.”

I think he meant, “Hey, girl, I never even burned a bra, except in your fantasies, in which I make love to you, after taking off your bra and throwing it in a bonfire.”

I’ve never burned one either. Bras for larger busts are very expensive.

Edit: Also his screech scared the shit out of my dog and she is trying to figure out where it came from.
