The “hot” men of the ‘Gangster Squad’ premiere: who would you rather?

Here are the photos of the dudes of the Gangster Squad premiere last night in LA – I previously covered “the ladies” of the premiere, which amounted to Emma Stone and Mireille Enos. I’m turning this into a “who would you rather?” post because I was surprised to see that there was ONE dude that I actually wanted to bring home (“bring home” = bone). That one dude is Anthony Mackie. Sorry, Hey Girls, I’m just not feeling Ryan Gosling these days.

Can we even say that Gosling is looking good these days? Is he though? He looks the same, I guess, only the suits are getting uglier. This three-piece Gucci suit in what I like to call “baby poop brown” looks like it came out of 1970s. I honestly think my father had a suit like this before I was born. Ryan’s date for the premiere was his mom Donna, who was wearing Eva Mendes’ clothes! Ryan told E!: “My mother’s wearing all my girlfriend’s clothes.” Donna confirmed: “I’m wearing Eva Mendes… She let me raid her closet.” Is that sweet or is that kind of Norman Bates-ish? I can’t decide.

I’m also including photos of my beloved Anthony Mackie (whose smile lights up the world, as far as I’m concerned), Nick Nolte looking like a BOSS in a bathrobe, Giovanni Ribisi looking like a Dateline Predator, Michael Pena (cute, but I don’t want to hit it) and the grossest pairing ever, Josh Brolin and Sean Penn. Penn’s face looks like a side of ham. And Josh just looks… yikes.

    This movie looks awful, I don’t even think Gosling’s hotness can save it.

  2. Nya says:

    The reviews for this movie are so BLEH, doesn’t help that it has two drunk aholes in it (Penn and Brolin)

    • carrie says:

      Nick Holte is known as alcoholic also (what he never hid)

    • Ally8 says:

      I can’t tell the difference between this movie & that bootlegging period piece “Lawless” with Shia LaBeouf that came out last year (and died a quiet death at the box office).

      Most of the modern male ‘leads’ have such boyish faces, as soon as you put them in 1900-1950s costumes, it looks like a production of Bugsy Malone.

  3. Post-Its says:

    Nolte, for sure! I love a man that forgets to take off his Big Bird robe for a movie premiere…lol.

  4. alons -y alonso says:

    Sean Penn looks like he showers in grease…..

  5. truthSF says:

    Mr. Makie if you please, now that’s my kind of dark chocolate.

  6. carrie says:

    the quote on Gosling’s mum wearing Eva Mendes’s clothes is scary !! very Oedipus in reverse!

    • Kate says:

      This x10000000000000000000

      I find Ryan’s and Leo’s relationships with their mother too clingy and bordering on creepy, because they seem to put them above any woman they would date or consider dating.

      Also his mother dressing like his girlfriend is WTF?

      I think those guys would marry their mothers if it weren’t completely wrong.

      Mommy boys are the worst, the mothers always interfere in their relationships.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      I would not say it is Oedipus in reverse, having your mom wear the clothes of your gf is Oedipus itself, or do you mean it as just the reversed version of having your gf wear the clothes of your mom?
      I also have the impression that Eva is a lot like his mother. I am not a fan of his mom, I think she has always been all about her famous actor son, her golden boy, I wonder what it was like growing up being his sister Mandy.

      • carrie says:

        i’m french so my language is not always adequat but i wanted to say it looks like “a full circle of Oedipus issue”.
        Okay if your mum is your date but your mum with your girlfriend’s clothes…is as creepy as a mum wearing her daughters’s clothes
        it’s probably a joke for them but it’s creepy for me
        (sorry i don’t find the words in english)

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        No, it is fine, I didn`t want to be that nit-picky. I am German, so my english is prob not that accurate all the time.

      • um... says:

        This is all so weird. He didn’t bring his girlfriend to the premiere… but had to bring her up because people don’t really believe the relationship and his answer to that is his mother…wearing his girlfriend’s clothing. Good God.

      • xyz says:

        His mom wearing his supposed “girlfriend’s” clothes is not cute. It’s strange. I always knew Ryan was an odd bird.

  7. Ranunculus says:

    I probably have a drink with Nolte, the rest seem like crazy Hollywood freaks. Brolin is a scary drunk, Gosling and his overbotoxed mom look like idiots, Penn looks 20 years older than he actually is.
    I am going to avoid that movie anyway

  8. says:

    Eerrr… I choose celibacy?

  9. Jenna says:

    Sean Penn looks sooooo gross! Nick Nolte’s a crazy boss! I love it.

    Eh. I don’t really like anyone here. I guess I’ll go with Ryan? By default? I DO want to see this movie though.

  10. JenD says:

    Lots of eye candy, minus Penn and Nolte.

  11. T.Fanty says:

    Wow. What a gaggle of hot messes (messi?).

    I’m not really a “dude!” person, but, dude, what is up with Anthony Mackie’s eye brows? He looks like the teen mum got at him while he was sleeping.

  12. Jenny says:

    Anthony Mackie reminds me to ask – what ever happened to Hot Guy Friday?

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah where has HGF been the last few (6ish?) months?!! That was my Friday highlight lol

  13. GoodCapon says:

    Mrs Gosling’s face is uber shiny and fake. Either it’s just the lights or she had something done.

    I also don’t find any of the men featured here attractive at all.

  14. Michele says:

    Ryan just keeps getting hotter and hotter! I can’t wait to see him in this new movie.

  15. madpoe says:

    Mackie got my bid!

  16. Kate says:

    Ryan’s mom looks like Roseanne.

  17. Marisa says:

    As far as raiding Eva’s closet, that’s just weird. May I also ask, what’s the deal with the mother’s hair? Is that a wig, or a bad dye job?
    I concur with the side-of-ham face of Sean Penn, that made my morning.
    As for who I’d hit it with, Ryan Gosling by default.
    Mad respect to Nick Nolte for wearing a bathrobe.

  18. Miss Kiki says:

    I can’t muster any excitement for Ryan, like he’s a decent looking dude but he does not make the biscuits tingle. Sean Penn makes my skin crawl and he also gives me a reason to dislike ScarJo (who am I kidding, I don’t need a reason)

  19. Jess says:

    Usually Ryan, but that suit is fug, and he has too much fur on his face. Also, I would do Josh Brolin, no use in pretending I wouldn’t.

  20. Jackie says:

    The Ryan quote about his mother wearing Eva Mendes clothes was probably supposed to come off as cute or funny, but considering how much of a momma’s boy he is, and considering how much she’s rumored to control his love life, I’m creeped out by it. His mom has had so much work done, it makes her look older not younger.

  21. bns says:

    Anthony Mackie is so hot and a great actor who deserves better than this awful looking movie.

    I used to be indifferent about Ryan Gosling, but now I can’t stand his ugly face.

  22. handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

    Josh Brolin

  23. lucy2 says:

    Aw, Nick Nolte came as the Gorton’s Fisherman! Nice.

    Mackie is cute, and Gosling still is too.
    Sean Penn looks horrible.

  24. MAP says:

    that *dateline predator* line made me spit coffee on my screen. too too funny.

  25. Nessa says:

    Wtf happened to Ryan Gosling?!

    Thank goodness Anthony Mackie saves this post! He is looking good.

  26. QQ says:

    Gosling Minus those shoes
    Michael Peña

  27. Missy says:

    I think Ryan’s mum also raided Eva’s Botox cabinet.

  28. j.eyre says:

    Anthony Mackie in a hands down win for me. He is a handsome man on his own but I think I am equally turned on by his outfit. Can a suit be on the Hit List? And since his is a three-piece suit, would that make it a four way?

  29. tabasco says:

    Gosling, minus the facial hair and all clothing.

  30. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    With Sean Penn wearing jeans on the red carpet, not even getting called out for it due to his other distracting features…well, thats pretty bad

  31. heatheradair says:

    Feels like a major fail for most of them…..smooshed, wrinkled-looking suits (and bathrobes), greasy, greasy, greasy Sean Penn…..for shame, gentlemen — when the ladies put some effort into it…….they could at least manage to iron?

  32. tabasco says:

    ooooh, actually, just saw the links – i’ll take David Bowie as well.

  33. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Except for Anthony Mackie, even though I am not feeling the suit, and Emma Stone, this is the most random, like fucked up red carpet premiere in a long time, it is hilarous.
    Ryan and his Mum: the suit, the Norman Bates connection
    Sean Penn: just look at him, the outfit, the face
    Josh Brolin: the aubergine wrinkly suit, the smug bitchface
    Nic Nolte: Dude, seriously
    Giovanni Ribisi: Nice effort Chester the Molester

  34. Booboocita says:

    No love for a hot Latino? Michael Peña makes me proud to be Mexican-American! And he was so good in End of Watch, a straight drama, and Tower Heist, a comedy. Excellent range!

    Check him out in this short, “Put a mustache on it,” about the Spanish letter ñ:

  35. stephanie says:

    I don’t get Ryan Gosling. Why do people think he’s attractive? Also, who is that in the bathrobe? Ew.

  36. Happy21 says:

    I’m in for some bad boy bone and I’ll take Penn & Brolin, together thanks ;)

  37. Chordy says:

    Everyone needs to step away from my man, Anthony Mackie. I’ve been obsessed with him since the Hurt Locker. The man is beautiful, talented, smart, a well-studied actor, and, oh yeah, freaking beautiful! And I love him so much I even like that suit, so I win him.

  38. StaCat1 says:

    Ryan has definitely been dressing differently for red carpets/talk shows in the last year or so. And it’s not necessarily a good thing in my opinion. Not sure of Ms. Mendes has rubbed off on him or not.
    The cool thing with Ryan Gosling used to be that he didn’t seem to care about all the Hollywood BS..but in the last year or so- he seems to be diving into it head first. Which takes his “edge” away, for me.
    Not sure if Eva is part of this change or not..but it was kind of like when Brad coupled up with Angie. Their hotness evaporates.
    Ryan didn’t have this issue with Rachel McAdams? Odd.

    • bonnie says:

      I wonder if Eva’s supposed coldness has rubbed off on him too? He doesn’t seem to like fans to approach him anymore either. And yet he used to be super approachable. There’s definitely a change. And what’s up with his mom wearing Eva’s clothes? That’s just weird. Ryan is still either out of his mind, or this is a bearding arrangement.

  39. Zelda Fitzgerald says:

    It doesn’t seem like Mrs. Gosling and Eva Mendes would wear the same size clothing.

  40. Bookworm mommy says:

    I would so hit josh brolin, he looks like he would toss me around & make me scream, then slap my a$$ before he leaves w/out saying goodbye, haha!!

  41. Bookworm mommy says:

    I would so hit josh brolin, he looks like he would toss me around & make me scream, then slap my booty before he leaves w/out saying goodbye, haha…just the way I like it

  42. Cleveland Girl says:

    Why is Nick Nolte wearing a bathrobe?

  43. efwcheryl says:

    How does his mom look better and younger than Eva Mendes?

  44. midnightmoon says:

    Before they finish publishing, the DSM-5 needs to add a new category: Red Carpet Trauma. I think I will go find a PTSD therapist now. THAT IS JUST AWFUL. Even Anthony Mackie kinda scares me.

    WHAT THE F&/K???!!!???

  45. dahlia1947 says:

    OOOh! Boys and more boys! Thank u! I love these posts! Ok I will say that Giovanni is looking pretty sharp! I love that black suit on him! I can’t wait to see this movie! If only to see Ryan! Yumm! Ok now u all know! Yes, that’s who I’d hit!

  46. Grace says:

    Ryan used to be hot but now he’s just…ick. His mom gives off that vibe like no woman will ever be good enough for her “baby”. That’s probably why Rachel ran like the wind.Ryan is a mama’s boy and she needed all man. Eva dodged a bullet with this one.

  47. bangarang says:

    I maybe in the minoirty but I don’t find Ryan Gosling hot.

  48. Paloma says:

    Good to see Sean Penn washed his hair and donned appropriate clothing.

  49. Nicole says:

    Anthony always looks hot! Ryan hasn’t been hot since Blue Valentine.

  50. MrsBPitt says:

    Sean Penn needs a bag over his face…and RG’s mom looks like V for Vendetta…seriously, take a look!

  51. Pale fire says:

    The guy in the yellow bathrobe hahahahahah WHAT!

  52. Boo says:

    This is a weird post. Everyone looks kinda odd.

  53. Reese says:

    None of them are looking good enough to take home. Ryan isn’t looking that hot here. Brolin is ‘meh’ and Sean Penn is just looking old these days. Still a great actor though. SO not attracted to Mackie, he’s all yours ladies ;)

    And while I wouldn’t hit it, I adore Michael Pena. Such a cutie and he was so great in End of Watch that I’ll see anything he’s in from now on.

  54. Ms Kay says:

    So which colour is that Gucci suit Ryan is wearing? Rust or Caca?
