Ryan Gosling understands women

Ryan Gosling Ryan Gosling understands women. The Gangster Squad actor - who is dating Eva Mendes - was home-schooled and raised by his mother and sister and thinks his childhood experiences have made him "appreciate" the way females think more and he has an "emotional connection" to them. He said: "If I have any particular appeal to women, maybe it's because I listen more than other guys do and I appreciate how they think and feel about things. I grew up in a family of strong women and I owe any capacity I have to understand women to my mother and big sister. They taught me to respect women in a way where I've always felt a strong emotional connection to women, which has also helped me in the way I approach my work." He added to Britain's OK! magazine: "It's a question of your sensibility and having a sensitivity to emotional issues that women think about a lot more than most men do. I've always enjoyed talking to women about those things because I find it very real and meaningful and it's interesting to be able to relate to women on that level, rather than cutting yourself off from that."

    The particular appeal(s) you have to women is that they think you’re hot, you’re a movie star and you make millions of dollars. Apparently being home schooled didn’t teach you enough about women.
