Who's Our Favorite Ryan?

Just a reminder - all of our winners (all 40+ of them) will compete in a final throwdown to find The Lazy Genius Collective's favorite  of all time. HARDCORE, Y'ALL. I can't wait.

Last week, we voted for our favorite Will. It was an even showing, but your winner is...

Will Smith!

 

Okay, let's talk Ryans.

Ohmyword if you look at the word Ryan for too long, it starts to look like an insane person is using ancient symbols to communicate. So weird looking. Moving on.

This list of Ryans is short but rich. I think it's a clear race between two, but you never know how many of you might just hate Reese Witherspoon! Who am I to judge! Let's get to voting.


Ryan Gosling

Why We Love Him

This is a stupid question. But to try and answer it, I just spent forty minutes in a black hole of Ryan Gosling YouTube videos, and now I'm going to dream about the guy for at least a week. If you're struggling with articulating your own answer, I highly recommend my strategy. 

Where We've Seen Him

The Notebook, Crazy Stupid Love, The Ides of March, Drive, Blue Valentine, The Big Short, Lars and the Real Girl, Remember the Titans, and of course Young Hercules.

 


Ryan Phillippe

Where We've Seen Him

On Reese Witherspoon's arm for awhile plus Damages, Stop-Loss, Cruel Intentions, and one of my favorite films, Gosford Park.

Why We Love Him

I keep trying to sugar-coat it, but frankly I have no good answer because I don't love him. He seems really illusive in interviews, but he has to be reasonably decent for the adorably spunky Reese Witherspoon to be married to him for ten years, right? If you love him, let us know why.


Ryan Reynolds

Why We Love Him

He's annoyingly perfect, much like his wife, Blake Lively. Handsome, funny, self-deprecating, a seemingly good dad, talented, blah blah blah. Following him on Twitter is quite the interesting experience. 

Where We've Seen Him

The Proposal, Green Lantern, Deadpool, and the long gone but not forgotten Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place.


Ryan Seacrest

Where We've Seen Him

Everywhere. Literally everywhere. 

Why We Love Him

Whatever your thoughts are on American Idol or the ubiquitousness of its host, Ryan Seacrest knows how to talk to people. Sure, there's the occasional awkward red carpet question or his not knowing how to respond to a crying women like La'Porsha or Kelly Clarkson, but he's incredibly good at his job, at making us all feel like we're part of something together. And he's parlayed his Idol success into a shockingly well thought out career. If you ever need a talent agent, GET HIS.
