Ryan Gosling: 'Women Are Better Than Men'

The actor asserts his feminist credentials. Again

With each new film release, marriage, outfit - in short anything he does - Ryan Gosling continues to prove he can do no wrong.

This week the world's most 'woke' man spoke to ES Magazine to explain why women are better than men and America needs a female president.

"It's our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick. I grew up with women so I've always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory; a hunt."

He also opened up about being in touch with his feminine side when asked what percentage women he thought he was: "I'd say 49 per cent, sometimes 47 per cent, it depends on what day you catch me."

The Drive star then went even further to argue why he thought women were simply better than men, speaking about his two daughters:

"I think women are better than men. They are stronger. More evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately."

Gosling also spoke to ES about his hopes for a female American president and how women's influence in his home effected his upbringing:

"I think it [America] needs a woman's touch. I've always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better."
