!! OMG, she speaks: The woman Ryan Gosling saved from dying !!
The woman Ryan Gosling saved from stepping into oncoming traffic in New York City -- British journalist Laurie Penny -- has responded to the lightening-fast meme that broke out after the actor's heroic gesture... and she's not so keen on Gosling playing the hero:
I really do object to being framed as the ditzy damsel in distress in this story. I do not mean any disrespect to Ryan Gosling, who is an excellent actor and, by all accounts, a personable and decent chap. I thought he was marvelous in The Ides of March, and will feel weird about objectifying him in future now that I have encountered him briefly as an actual human. But as a feminist, a writer, and a gentlewoman of fortune, I refuse to be cast in any sort of boring supporting female role, even though I have occasional trouble crossing the road, and even though I did swoon the teeniest tiniest bit when I realized it was him. I think that's lazy storytelling, and I'm sure Ryan Gosling would agree with me.
