Will available pet-sitters please stand up?

Ryan Gosling, whose torso once prompted Emma Stone's "Crazy, Sexy, Love" character to ask if he was photoshopped, discussed his very well-received physique in a recent interview with Australia's The Herald Sun, in which he referred to his muscles as his "pets."

"Anyone can get those if they work at it. It's just a lot of exercising," the 32-year-old "Gangster Squad" star said, adding that there isn't much point to toning up. "And it's really quite pointless, because you go to a gym and you lift a heavy thing so a muscle grows, but the only thing the muscle can actually do is to lift that heavy thing," Gosling said.

"After a while they're like pets because they don't do anything useful," Gosling joked. "But you have to feed them and take care of them otherwise they'll go away. I feel a bit goofy having them, to tell you the truth."
