Like a Dream Sequence Come to Life, Ryan Gosling Teaches Jimmy Kimmel to Waltz

"Are you dancing with over there, or are you dancing with me?"

Jimmy Kimmel, the luckiest girl in the world but not, just got to do what few but Emma Stone and Eva Mendes and Rachel McAdams have done: know the tender/steely/really masculine embrace of Ryan Gosling's arms. That is because on Wednesday evening's program, the La La Land lead recalled just enough of his dance training from the movie to teach his host how to waltz.

(And by "waltz," we mean "correct his posture at every step and stare deeply into each other's eyes until Kimmel, in the part of Emma Stone, has to look elsewhere because it's just too intense.") Watch the clip here.
