Fun Fact of the Day: This Guy is a Crafter

created at: 01/29/2013

Not only can Ryan Gosling wear a suit with the best of ’em, but the actor also has a dedicated interest in making stuff.      

According the SFGate, Gosling has developed a favorite way to relax during long days on the movie set: knitting. He first grabbed the needles during the filming of 2007’s Lars and the Real Girl, and has maintained the hobby, even if his creations aren’t picture perfect.

SFGate quotes Gosling in GQ Australia,

I did this scene in ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life… If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf.

Even I kinda want to swoon right now. Whatever that means. Learn more at SFGate: Ryan Gosling relaxes by knitting
