RYAN Gosling had “two of the greatest girlfriends of all time” in Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams.
The Drive actor — who dated Sandra for a year until 2003 and saw his two-year romance with Rachel end in 2007 — is currently too focused on his career to date and says he hasn’t found anyone who could “top” the romance he had with his former flames.
“There’s interest but I’m in a committed relationship with film. I’m giving as much to it as a marriage,” he said.
“I had two of the greatest girlfriends of all time. I haven’t met anybody who could top them.”
Ryan believes both relationships ended because both he and his girlfriends work in Hollywood.
“Showbusiness is the bad guy. When both people are in showbusiness it’s too much showbusiness. It takes all of the light, so nothing else can grow,” he said.
The 30-year-old star also admitted he would love to have children and will happily give up his movie career when the time comes to start a family.
“I’d like to be making babies but I’m not, so I’m making movies. When someone comes along I don’t think I’ll be able to do both and I’m fine with that. I’ll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen,” he said.
Butterball has announced that high production costs are forcing them to close their massive turkey processing plant in Colorado by the end of 2011.
The America’s largest turkey producer says business just isn’t what it used to be. The cost of producing turkey is significantly reducing Butterball’s profits and rising grain prices are partly to blame. The increasing price of soymeal costs Butterball $65 million more every year and the company hopes that closing the Colorado plant will prevent more plant closures around the country.
Grain prices are bad but Butterball’s image is worse. In 2006, investigators caught Butterball workers on camera jumping on birds until they popped and their insides came out of their rectums. Along with high grain prices, paying PR staff to field inquires about the extreme abuses at Butterball facilities no doubt added to the overall cost of the product as well.
The Longmont, Colorado turkey plant is one of the largest in the nation and employs 350 people. The facility is one-of-six Butterball plants in the US and there is no telling whether this measure will save the company or just slow their eventual collapse from ever increasing production costs.
Folks on the “Turkey Talk” line should be worried.
Gay World War II vet Jack Strouss, one of 200 members and supporters of American Veterans for Equal Rights who gathered yesterday at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, had a few choice words for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” on the eve of its formal repeal.
“I actually never thought I’d live long enough to this day,” the 88-year-old told the crowd, “but here it is. And, in a firm voice, I would just like to say, about ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’: good riddance!”
