Ryan Gosling

 Ryan Thomas Gosling born in London Ontario on November 12th 1980. Raised in Corwall, Ontario his father Thomas Gosling a paper mill worker and his mother Donna a secretary who also qualified as a high school teacher in 2011. Growing up his parents were Mormons. Ryan say's about his parents being Mormon "it was a part of everything - what they ate, how they thought".
His parents divorced when he was a child and he and his older sister, Mandi, were raised by their mother, an experience Gosling has credited with programming him "to think like a girl."
Ryan was bullied in elementary school and had "no pals" "not in a sad,'poor me' way. I didn't want any. I liked being alone. It was only when I was 14,15 I got friends." "I hated being a kid. I didn't like being told what to do, I didn't like my body, I didn't like any of it."
In the 1st grade having been influenced by the film Rambo: First Blood he brought steak knives to school and threw them at other children during recess. This incident lead to a suspension. While attending Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School, he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), prescribed Ritalin and placed in a class for special needs students. He was unable to read which he found "pretty frustrating. I couldn't absorb any of the information, so I caused trouble."
His mother quit her job and home schooled him for a year. Ryan said that homeschooling gave him "a sense of autonomy that I've never really lost"
He developed an idiosyncratic accent because "as a kid I thought having a Canadian accent didn't sound tough. I thought guys should like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that can't shake." He dropped out of high school at the age of 17 to focus on his career.

Ryan stars in the ever popular chick-flick The Notebook. I hate to admit it but I did like the movie and have heard many complaints (from the ladies) that Ryan should have been sexiest man of the year/alive in 2011.
Other movies I liked him in are Remember the Titans,Murder by Numbers and The United States of Leland.

Tiffani-Amber Thiessen is an American actress born on January 23rd 1974 in Long Beach, California. Daughter of Robyn a homemaker who is Greek,Turkish and of Welsh descent. Frank Thiessen her father a park designer and landscape architect who is German. Tiffani has two brothers, an older brother Todd who is an actor and avid professional cyclist. Her younger brothers name is Schuyler.
Tiffani told InStyle magazine: "I'm a mutt. I have so much of everything in me, and half of it I don't even know. German on one side,Greek,Turkish and Welsh on the other. My mom is very olive-skinned; I get my blue eyes from my dad." She credits her brother, Todd as one of her most important sources of inspiration as well as her mother and grandmother as role models. She attended Cubberley Elementary and Marshall Junior High School in Long Beach. In 1992 she graduated as valedictorian at Valley Professional High School in Studio City, Los Angeles, California. Tiffani dated Brian Austin Green during the early to mid 1990's. From October 2001 to March 2003 she was engaged to actor Richard Ruccolo whom she had met during the Two Guys and a Girl. She married actor Brady Smith on July 9th 2005.

 She gave birth to a daughter they named Harper Renn Smith weighing 8 lbs. 3 oz. at birth. As a child she was in many beauty pageants and was crowned Miss Junior America in 1987 and then a year later won Teen magazine's "Great Model Search" in 1988. At the age of 15 she auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski on the television show Saved by the Bell. I always associate her with that show when I see her. Just recently I started watching the show White Collar where she plays the husband of a cop. Of course she is too hot for her so called husband in the show. Tiffani has been in quite a few smaller roles in television shows like Married... with Children,Charles in Charge,Step by Step,Blossom,Beverly Hills 90210,News Radio,Two Guys a Girl And A Pizza Place and Just Shoot Me. I thought she was incredibly sexy in the movie Son in Law.

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Michael Jackman born on October 12th 1968 in Sydney,New South Wales.  Hugh is the youngest of five siblings.  His parents are English.  Chris Jackman his father and Grace Watson his mother.  Hugh was the second child in his family to be born in Australia.
In November 2008 Open Salon named Hugh one of the sexiest men alive.  Then later on in that same month People magazine followed suit naming him Sexiest Man Alive.  Hugh Jackman is a singer,dancer,actor and likes to do stage musicals.  He has hosted the Tony awards three times and received an award for his role in The Boy from OZ.  He also hosted the 81st Academy awards in 2009 February 22nd.
His parents unfortunately divorced when he was eight.  Hugh stayed with his father and his mother moved back to England after the divorce.  One of his paternal Grandfathers was Greek.
He went to primary school at Pymble Public School and later attended an all-boys Knox Grammar School where he stared in its production of My Fair Lady in 1985 and became the captain of the school in 1986.
Hugh played rugby union and cricket in high school.  He also took part in high jumping and was on the swimming team.
Later after obtaining his BA Hugh completed the one year course "The Journey" at the Actors Centre in Sydney.  Hugh's thoughts on studying acting full time "It wasn't until I was 22 that I ever thought about my hobby being something I could make a living out of.  As a boy, I'd always had an interest in theater.  But the idea at my school was that drama and music were to round out the man.  It wasn't what one did for a living.  I got over that.  I found the courage to stand up and say, "I want to do it."
I like how modest and normal Hugh Jackman appears to be.
He also stated he "always loved acting but when I started at drama school I was like the dunce of the class.  It just wasn't coming right to me.  Everyone was cooler, everyone seemed more likely to succeed, everyone seemed more natural at it and in retrospect I think that is good.  I think it is good to come from behind as an actor.  I think it is good to go into an audition thinking 'Man I've got to be at my best to get this gig.'
Hugh married Deborra-Lee Furness on April 11th 1996.  I believe the couple met while on the set of Correlli, an Australian television series.  He personally designed an engagement ring for Deborra-Lee boring the Sanskrit inscription "Om paramar mainamar", translation "We dedicate our union to a greater source".  They had two miscarriages, after that Hugh and Deborra-Lee decided to adopt.  Oscar Maximillian born on May 15th 2000 and Ava Eliot, born on July the 10th 2005.
My favorite movies include the X-Men trilogy, Kate and Leopold, Someone Like You, Swordfish, Van Helsing, (voice of Memphis) Happy Feet, The Prestige, The Fountain and Real Steel.  I just found out he was the voice of Gaston, in the classic Walt Disney production of Beauty and the Beast.
Topless primal screams on Conan. Hilarious!
