Ryan Gosling is “very excited” that Tom Hanks likes “La La Land” and now we want to see it even more

La La Land star, Ryan Gosling is “very excited” that Tom Hanks likes the movie and now we want to see it even more. Is it December 16th yet?

The Los Angeles based musical film is critically acclaimed, but we’re more excited — as is Gosling — that The Circle actor is a fan, because let’s face it we are all-in on anything Hanks does or says, it’s just the truth.

While visiting The Wrap’s interview studio at the Toronto Film Festival back in September, Gosling and La La Land director, Damien Chazelle revealed that Hanks had seen the film and interrupted his own Sully interview to talk it ip, so they took the time to thank him for his support, which is adorable.

"It was so exciting that he talked about the film because we talked about Tom Hanks every day on set," Gosling told The Wrap.


Gosling explained that the whole cast was major fans of Hanks’ 1996 film, That Thing You Do, which was about an American boy band that hits the stardom level of the Beatles.

"We were always referencing 'That Thing You Do,' which was a movie that we all loved," he explained. "We were always trying to out quote each other from 'That Thing You Do,' so he was alive and well on that set."


La La Land’s director then used their interview time to give a shout out to Hanks’ more recent film, Sully, which he was supposed to be promoting when he instead gushed about their musical.

"Emma and I went to see 'Sully' Friday night [and] we sent Tom a picture," Chazelle revealed in the interview. "It's actually great. It's phenomenal and he's phenomenal in it."

Okay, now both La La Land and Sully are definitely on our holiday movie must-watch list!
