Ryan Gosling Explains Why He Laughed During the ‘surreal’ Oscars Mix-up

It’s been a month since the infamous “envelope-gate” incident at the Academy Awards, and it seems we still can’t stop talking about it. I’m sure there are two people who really wish we would already. In the sea of all of the chaos that ensued on stage after Warren Beatty mistakenly announced that La La Land won Best Picture, Ryan Gosling simply stood on stage giggling like a kid.
His reaction might have come off as a bit odd, and the 36-year-old actor was finally ready to tell his side of the story at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Yes, Adobe as in Photoshop and Acrobat. Ryan was a last-minute replacement for Bradley Cooper at the event. Why he would be there either is a mystery to me, unless he’s a closet Illustrator savant or something. (Side fun fact: Ryan doesn’t know Photoshop.)
But, I digress. The reason for Ryan’s Oscar reaction is totally relatable if you’ve ever burst into a fit of laughter at an inappropriate moment (like I did in church many a time as a kid).
What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt. I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst case scenario playing out in my head.”
And then I just heard, ‘Oh Moonlight won,’ and I was so relieved that I started laughing. But truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won, I know the director…I’ve worked with them before. It’s such a ground breaking film, made for a million dollars, and incredible achievement and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.

Also at the summit, Ryan talked about how he’s become the subject of memes (like the “Hey, Girl” one that was everywhere) and went into detail about the origin of the viral video “Ryan Gosling won’t eat his cereal.”
I think what is happening with the cereal one which is interesting is that made me aware of the potential power of them is that there was a kid named Ryan McHenry who I think was Scottish and was high and watching the film “Drive” with cereal and thought it was really funny to try and make it look like I wouldn’t eat my cereal … it just caught on to the point where … I couldn’t even leave my house in L.A. and go walk down the street without people yelling at me ‘why won’t you eat your cereal.’ It even got to the point where when I would film a scene, sometimes I would see the spoon coming out and I would think, this guy’s going to cereal the piece.”
“So I had this weird relationship to it. It was a part of my day-to-day. So, eventually he got cancer and passed away and it was strange because I didn’t know this person and I never met him – yet he was a part of my life. And I mean I was for him in a small way. And the only thing I could think to do was to eat my cereal. So I just filmed a little vine of me doing that…and it felt full circle and closed and, you know, it struck me that also there was inconsequential things … there’s kind of a connective power…yet to be tapped. Right now, it’s sort of a Bambi on Ice phase.

I love that he was honest about the Oscar incident and seems to own his viral appeal. If he could get me free Photoshop, he’d be the perfect guy.
