Ryan Gosling [Actor] Gosling's parents were Mormons and he has said that religion influenced every aspect of their lives.

" Gosling now calls himself "religious but nondenominational."
Ryan Cabrera - Singer Ryan Cabrera’s tattoo of actor Ryan Gosling’s face may be unusual, but the reason he got it is an old tattoo cliché: his friends made him do it. Cabrera and his buddies like to engage in a high-stakes game they call “Tattoo Roulette” in which one friend gets to choose a design for another who is blindfolded. The blindfold only comes off when the tattoo is done. But Cabrera has had no regrets, he’s continued to show off the other-Ryan’s visage on his calf since he first revealed it in 2013.
