UPDATE 2:45 p.m. ET: omg! Canada contacted Michael Murray to obtain confirmation of this story. Murray replied with the clarification that his Ryan Gosling story is fictional.
"What I wrote was a piece of fiction. I typically write comedic, celebrity infused fiction for Pajiba, where it is known by the audience that I am mining a ground between fact and fiction," Murray wrote. "I'm sorry if this misunderstanding has caused you any problems."

"Give me a break, Gosling!" Murray responded ("I have no idea why I said this," he wrote).
