As if we didn't love Ryan Gosling enough already, here's an adorable story about the things he does to make his mom happy.

Gosling was on The Graham Norton Show recently, and told a story about how he got Meryl Streep to compliment his mom, who was feeling self-conscious about her very tall beehive hairstyle at an award show.

I've got to tell you guys, this is pretty freaking adorable.

Other celebs also joined Norton to talk about their moms on the episode, including Ben Affleck and Ryan Gosling's La La Land co-star, Emma Stone. You can watch the whole segment below.


We're sure Ryan's mom had no further doubts about her hair after getting a compliment from queen Meryl Streep herself. (Regardless of how fabricated that compliment may have been.)
