What Irritated Ryan Gosling on the 'Gangster Squad' Set?

We’re excited to see Gangster Squad for many reasons, most notably to see Ryan Gosling in yet another sexy suit. But as it turns out, the actor didn’t particularly love his period costume.

“The wool was quite itchy, so I had a rash,” he admitted to reporters during a recent press event for the film in Beverly Hills. “I channeled that irritation into my hatred for the gangsters.”

Costar Josh Brolin seconded Gosling’s comments; when asked about the biggest wardrobe challenges he faced, he simply replied, “Itchy and tight.”

However, Gosling’s suit plays an interesting role in the film. While researching, the actor met with the family members of the man he plays, and learned about some of his character’s quirks.

“His kids came to the set and told me a lot of stories and a lot of great details. Like, when he would ash his cigarette, he would ash into the cuff of his pants,” Gosling explained. “Then at the end of the day, he would dump out his cuffs, dump out all the ashes.” We can’t wait to see Gosling master that move. Gangster Squad, which also stars Emma Stone, hits theaters Jan. 11, 2013. Tell us: Do you plan to see the film?

I don’t find Ryan Gosling very attractive at all, just my personal opinion. Too scrawny for me. Now Channing Tatum on the other hand….. WOW!
