Are Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling related?

In 2017, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds appeared on Wired and answered the internet's most burning questions. While most of the questions revolved around their lives and movies, among those was a basic misconception people had about whether or not Reynolds and Ryan Gosling were related. Before the Deadpool star could answer, Gyllenhaal had an epic reply.

When the question came, "Is Ryan Gosling related to Ryan Reynolds?" Gyllenhaal immediately answered. He said, "Canada had s*x with America, and then they mated the two of them, and they are twins, and both of them tried to mate in the womb but they didn't. They survived. And, because of the trauma, they both became actors, and that's why they are who they are." Reynolds replied, "I can’t feel my life."


This is an old tale: the two actors have been confused for one another, and fans have always wondered if they are related. Well, they aren't. Reynolds is the brunette one, and Gosling is the blonde one.
