Ryan Gosling visited a cardboard cutout of himself after a café asked him to

A wholesome exchange.

RYAN GOSLING WAS the talk of Toronto this week, in more ways than one.

He’s been knocking around at the Toronto Film Festival, but he was also wanted by Joelle Murphy, owner of Grinder Coffee shop. After failing to get Idris Elba to stop by in 2017, she was undeterred in her quest, and decided to see if Ryan would come visit.


Soon loads of people were dropping in to take pics with Cardboard Gosling.

And the campaign gained legs. So many legs, in fact, that it became impossible for Gosling to ignore. He eventually decided to drop by for a cup o’ joe, much to the delight of Joelle.

She tweeted:

And this happened…  #ryanneedsgrinder worked. The man himself showed up.  What a good sport,  a well brought up Canadian boy.  We truly appreciate Ryan taking the time the time to visit us during #tiff.  Take that @idriselba your loss.”

Idris must be morts for himself.
