Pro tip: always try your clothes on before appearing on television. Ryan Gosling learned this lesson the hard way when he neglected to check the tailor’s handiwork before sitting down with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.
The actor, who just welcomed his second child with Eva Mendes, realized a little late that his pants were too tight — although the studio audience definitely didn’t mind. “It’s wildly inappropriate. I feel like I’m going steady with these pants,” he said. “I can’t feel my calves. I don’t know if that’s good. I asked for it because I’m dressed this way.”
Gosling, currently starring alongside Russell Crowe in The Nice Guys, asked the cameraman to crop in on his face, but Kimmel had a better idea: “Do the opposite I think it’ll get us better ratings.” Good call!
