Ryan Gosling 'thinks like a girl'

Ryan Gosling thinks "like a girl".

The 34-year-old Hollywood hunk was raised by his mother Donna and his older sister Mandi after his parents divorced when he was 13, and he says that experience has helped him to empathise with women.

Ryan - whose long-term girlfriend Eva Mendes gave birth to a baby girl, Esmeralda Amada, in September 2014 - said: "I have strong female characters in my life. And I was raised by my mother and my sister, so I feel like I think like a girl sometimes."

Ryan said his ability to relate to woman has been beneficial because "girls are better".

Asked if thinking like a girl has helped, Ryan told ShortList magazine: "Yeah, it's way better than thinking like a guy. Guys are better than us, that's no secret."

Meanwhile, Eva recently said not wearing sweatpants is key to the success of the Hollywood duo's long-lasting relationship.

She shared: "You can't do sweatpants... ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!"

The 41-year-old actress also revealed she's developed a new appreciation for motherhood since giving birth.

She said: "You never know, right, something random can happen and she's just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you're like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what's up? Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?

"Now I understand so much, my mother's never gotten more, 'I love you so much mommy' texts, I mean, randomly ... I get it now."
