Ryan Gosling's 'happiest time'

Ryan Gosling says it was the "happiest time" of his life when his two kids were born.

The 'Nice Guys' actor has two-year-old Esmerelda and four-month-old Amada with long-term partner Eva Mendes, 42, and admitted their daughters are the best thing that's ever happened to him.

He said: "They're angels. It's the happiest time in my life."

One less than pleasant moment in the Hollywood actor's life occurred when he auditioned for a part and the person he was acting for took a phone call halfway through, but he was able to use that experience for a scene in his new movie 'La La Land'.

He said: "There's actually a scene in the film, which is based on an audition that I had where it was a very emotional scene I had to do and halfway through, the lady took a call and just kept talking while I was supposed to finish my lines."

Ryan also admitted the movie itself is an "emotional" one for the audience, and it has received a positive reaction so far.

He added to 'Entertainment Tonight': "I think at their best [musical movies] can be very emotional for the audience, and we really wanted to make a film that people really wanted to see in the theatre.

"From what I understand - and I haven't seen it with a crowd yet - but people enjoy the film, but they also enjoy the experience of seeing it with an audience."

Tom Hanks has already declared his love for the motion picture, interrupting his own 'Sully' press conference to talk highly about the film.

And when asked about watching 'La La Land' on a different occasion, he declared: "Man, that was the most fun I've had in a thousand years!"

The movie sees Emma Stone portray aspiring actress Mia opposite Ryan's alter-ego, jazz pianist Sebastian, who fall for each other in Los Angeles.
